We custom design a program for your specific needs. We take care of everything (meals, lodging, classes, travel arraignments), you concentrate on learning Spanish while we handle the rest. Our prices are very competitive in relation to the level of personalized attention which you will receive.
There are no hidden costs, our programs are all inclusive. For no extra charge we offer Spanish language internships and conversations with professionals in your field. Our homestay family houses are located in some of the most secure and upscale neighborhoods in Costa Rica. We boast a very high percentage of return students. We offer courses for almost every occupation and need including; medical, business, law, students, social workers, families with children, Spanish teachers, retirees, etc…
Our school was created as a result of having worked in the field of Spanish language training for many years. We believe that there has been a lack of schools offering personalized programs for their students. Our programs offer a nontraditional learning environment, giving our students tools for functioning in the real world.
Our students not only learn the Spanish language, they also learn to function independently within the contexts they require. Our program is based on a communicative philosophy and our lesson plans offer the flexibility to change to meet the needs of our students. We work together with our students, as a team, to construct a work plan that will allow them to learn what they need to function in a Spanish environment. We invite individuals from all walks of life to join us!
To complement your Spanish classes, we offer cultural activities free of charge at least 3 or 4 times a week.
These may include:
- Touring the Costa Rican National Theater, the oldest and most beautiful theater in the country
- Visiting museums such as the National Museum, Jade Museum, or Gold Museum, all of which demonstrate Costa Rica's rich history
- A trip to "The Coffee Corner" where you can learn about the history of coffee in Costa Rica, the different types of coffee and how it is growing, and you can try out a cup for yourself
