We have literally spent decades developing a unique Spanish-learning program for "Second Career" students.
This variation of the usual Intensive Course is designed for students who may be concerned that learning a second language might not be as easy as it was back in college. The course aims to teach students basic Spanish vocabulary and grammatical structures that will help them get around the city and communicate everyday needs. We use special learning methods and visual aids to maximize the learning time.
We have been overwhelmed by the amazing faculty, staff and administration at The Spanish Language Institute! The teachers were able to accommodate our personal learning styles as well as to ease us into the full immersion of living in Costa Rica. The staff and administration were always warm and kind and they always had encouraging words for us. They genuinely cared about our family and always wanted to make sure that we were doing well in all areas of our life here. We entered the institute with no Spanish and we are leaving with a solid foundation of understanding, speaking, and writing the language. We also gained the invaluable cultural experience of living in such a beautiful country!
