Travel to Bocas Town

Trip to Costa Rica and Panama’s Caribbean coast

My name is Sam, I’m French and I have just arrived in Liverpool to start my two months intership in Hola People as part of my University curriculum. In this article I will be telling you about the incredible experience I got to live right before starting here.

The adventure started when I decided to join a friend who was doing her internship in Costa Rica. Since she had a week of holiday for Semana Santa, she wanted to travel to the South-East of the country and to Panama in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro.

Why German is an important language to learn

Have you ever considered studying the German language? Here are some reasons why studying German is a good idea!

1- German and English have many things in common.

Some examples are ‘Good morning’ and ‘Guten Morgen’, ‘football’ and ‘Fussball’ or ‘book’ and ‘Buch’.
