Be inspired by Nadja and Trinidad’s language study and surfing experiences!
Swiss snowboarder Nadja Purtschert and Chilean surfer Trinidad Segura have both had the unforgettable experience of taking language courses in beautiful surfing destinations with Yalea Languages.
¡Pura vida! Nadja Purtschert spent five weeks in tropical Costa Rica with Yalea and Sudden Rush, where she was able to not only take Spanish lessons, but also spend her time surfing Costa Rica’s beautiful beaches. Even though she arrived with little knowledge more than “hola”, “si” and “no”, Nadja quickly found her feet, learning Spanish whilst enjoying the waves with fellow Costa Rican surfers.
Nadja found that Costa Rica had much more to offer than just Flamingo and Jacó beaches. She also explored the volcanoes, visited the stunning La Paz Waterfalls and hiked in the tropical jungles of Monteverde. As well as practicing her surfing, Nadja loved exploring the other adventurous activities on offer in this beautiful Caribbean destination including rafting, diving, zip-lining and canopy walking. From her first few days in Costa Rica, Nadja fell in love with the language, culture and landscape of this tropical paradise.
Turquoise water, sun, white sands, perfect waves and friendly locals, Yalea organized the perfect island getaway for Trinidad Segura in Hawaii. On her trip, Trinidad was able to combine her passion for surf and desire to improve her English and within no time at all, she was on her way with the perfect course in Hawaii.
Who could visit Hawaii without hitting the waves? As a professional surfer, Trinidad naturally headed to the beach as soon as her classes finished each day. Watch the video to see Trinidad surfing the best waves this surf Mecca has to offer and to hear about her unforgettable experience with Yalea.
