Base of operations: Costa Rica
Our vision is to provide students with an integral language learning and cultural experience, using the communicative approach in combination with strategic elements of current didactic and pedagogical theory in a total cultural immersion environment, which contextualizes the language acquisition process. In addition, we aim to maintain our role at the forefront of the linguistic and intercultural studies field by creating new programs, expanding facilities, continuing the professional development of our staff and reinvesting in the communities that receive us.
Though a private enterprise, the majority of our profits are reinvested into academic and professional development for our staff, improvement of student facilities, and expansion of our community and cultural activities. A significant portion of our earnings go to regional causes and social development organizations, and to the endowment of our local student scholarship fund.
