Authentic Spanish Immersion in Costa Rica

We offer all-inclusive, high immersion Spanish language programs in La Fortuna de Bagaces, Costa Rica, an affordable and welcoming rural tropical community.

Our program executes a proven teaching method borrowed from the Peace Corps training, one of the world’s most effective language programs. 

Students live with pre-selected Costa Rican families during the program as they receive classes and participate in fun language activities (horseback riding, salsa classes, nature hikes, and many more).

Our recipe for fluency:

Students speak Spanish from dusk till dawn in a beautiful tropical town

Our Spanish immersion program puts students in a Spanish-only speaking environment. This rapid learning curve achieves great results! Very proficient and natural conversational fluency achieved in a month with little to no prior knowledge of Spanish.
