Gordon & Debbie Crandell

We came to The Spanish Language Institute in our late 50s. Having not studied for many years, we wondered about our ability to learn a new language at our age. However, our fears were totally unfounded. God sent us to The Spanish Language Institute to be surrounded by loving teachers and a campus with strong Christian community to see us through! The teachers provided us with the personal care and support we needed. The campus community and chapel services provided a flourishing spiritual environment that supported us while we adjusted to a new culture and language.

We now live and work in Costa Rica. The Spanish Language Institute provided us with the strong foundation in Spanish we will continue to build on in the years ahead.

The one-year course at The Spanish Language Institute was one of the most incredible experiences of my life! What a blessing it was to learn from qualified and experienced professionals! I was greatly impressed with the practical techniques of the staff, but moreover their amazing amount of patience and love for each student.

My family and I finished our year at ILE almost 3 years ago and we are amazed at what God blessed us with and in what He all did during our time there.
