Get a solid grounding in Spanish with our two or four week courses while enjoying Costa Rica and practicing your new skills with locals!
These intensive Spanish courses were tailored either as standalone courses, or as pre-placement courses prior to joining one of our projects. The courses are taught in Spanish and are very intensive – you will be amazed by how much progress you can achieve in just two weeks! The four week course will take you even further.
There are 3 hours of lessons a day (plus coffee break), Monday to Friday, and classes are either morning or afternoon, depending on availability. The course has a duration of either two or four weeks. In down time we would recommend another 3 (or more!) hours of study per day to gain the most from the course, coupled with local immersion (either trying out your new language skills or watching local TV/listening to the radio/reading books or newspapers).
You are of course able to take part in the same entertainment as participants on other programmes. Your teachers during lessons, and the local staff after lessons, are available to answer any questions and assist you with your language needs. Classes are kept small, in order to improve the learning experience.
Monday to Friday
Morning classes will usually be from 09:00 – 12:30 with a 30 minute coffee break, and afternoon classes from 13:30 – 17:00 with a 30 minute coffee break. You will have lunch on site (or arranged nearby).
