We have developed a method for teaching Spanish that is by far the fastest and most enjoyable you'll find. Our program consists of three levels (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced) with each of these sub-divided to suit your specific language needs (for example Beginning I, Intermediate II, and Advanced III). A brief verbal test before you begin your classes will ensure that you are placed in the correct level.
The standard course length is four hours a day, five days a week. But, we also offer an Intensive Course which is six hours per day for those who want additional instruction or who have time constraints. Both courses follow the same syllabus. During the high season (June, July, August) some students will receive classes in the afternoons.
This is a two week school and tour beginning Sunday. Home stay with a pre selected host family that will provide two meals per day (break fast and dinner) private room, laundry service. Professional Spanish classes for 4 hours per day at our school. Afternoons are free to roam or take excursions to cultural sites.

Our teachers are extremely competent and qualified; all are professional philologists with many years of experience teaching Spanish as a second language. Most importantly they love what they do, and share this enthusiasm with their students.
Take the afternoon to study or go out to experience theater, movies, museums, dancing and more in lively San José. We can even arrange tours and excursions to beautiful rain forests, beaches, and volcanoes throughout Costa Rica. Whether to receive University credit, fulfill professional education requirements or perfect conversation skills, our school is the school of choice. Plan on having a great time and making great friends.
Our classrooms are attractive and comfortable providing an ideal learning environment. As individual attention is a top priority, classes are limited to a maximum of six students. Active participation of the students is achieved with a variety of games and interactive material which nurture a rich learning environment and promote fluency.
Home stays are a very important part of our courses. Our method of total immersion extends beyond the classroom and includes lodging with a friendly Costa Rican family. All of the families have been carefully selected and are monitored so that your home stay experience is to your complete satisfaction. Your progress will be phenomenal when you live and learn here!
