We are a Costa Rican enterprise based on teaching Spanish language to foreigners in a simple, original and entertained way.
Besides, with over 18 years in the tourism industry we have shown countless sites of Costa Rica to numerous foreign students, sharing our language and culture with them.
We count with excellent bilingual tour guides who travel inside and out of Costa Rica, sharing cultural details that make these countries and above all, Costa Rica an exceptional place.
Our goal is to teach Spanish in Costa Rica, offering a “total immersion” to so the students can learn the language in a fast and efficient way, allowing them to obtain the best benefit from lessons each week.
We motivate and urge the students to pleasantly speak Spanish inside and outside of our school, so practicing the language will be more natural to them.
The process starts with our highly qualified and native speaking teachers; later on, the surrounding culture will be learned and shared by visits, excursions, volunteering and tours to different places in the country, all accompanied with the experience of daily living in a “Tico” (the way we Costa Rican’s are called) family home, or with the collaborators, depending on the location of the volunteering, immersing the students in the Costa Rica experience.
