If you are planning to stay beyond the last day of the course and would like to continue your Spanish studies, please indicate the length of time on your application form and any special areas of interest (cultural differences, medical terms, composition, etc.). We will do our best to arrange an independent study program (50 minutes per day) with a teacher.
Additional time with your host family will cost $15 per day.
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!
