It amazes me how far-reaching is the good reputation of the Institute. I’ve met ticos from as far away as Alajuela who were familiar with the Institute. Lest it seem that there is not a commitment to Spanish, my tico mom (who has had experience with other language schools) told me “they really know what they are doing”. I’ve found this to be very true. The teachers are so knowledgeable and the class sizes create an ideal learning environment. The process and pace that the Institute provides is so considerate of the students involved. The teachers and authorities are so trustworthy and helpful.
