    Saiden and Orietta, teachers from the Province of Limon in Costa Rica studied with us for 4 weeks in January. Their stay was sponsored by BritCham in Costa Rica and the agency Intercultura de Centroamerica AFP, S.A. who are keen to broaden the experience of public school English language teachers. English in Chester was able to offer a partial tuition scholarship through the Richard Day Scholarship Fund. Richard said that he was very happy to help this very worthwhile initiative and to have such wonderful, enthusiastic people in the school.
