Your Spanish course in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the most fascinating destinations in the world to learn Spanish. Costa Rica is the oldest democracy in Central America and a very safe country to travel. The citizens of Costa Rica call themselves “Ticos” and we like to think that that they are among the nicest people on earth.

Costa Rica is famous for its ecology and it offers an amazing variety of scenery and activities. It has become one of the most popular destinations to learn Spanish. The combination of studying and activities is unbeatable.

Turrialba – Campus

Our campus is located on the immense grounds of our proud host CATIE, (Central Agronomic Tropical Investigation Ensensia). This is Central America’s oldest and most respected research facility with over 450 acres of agriculture, administrative centres, housing, schools, laboratory, pool, library, club and lake. All facilities and the entire grounds are open to our students to enjoy and utilize

The school has a reception area with general information about CATIE and the surrounding countryside, Internet access, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and three indoor classrooms. There are also three outdoor classrooms or ranchitos and a porch. In the back of the school the ranchitos are shaded by two very large and very old trees, which create a wonderful backdrop in which to have classes.

Our students are able to utilize the different services available at CATIE such as the bank, post office, office, library and cafeteria. They can also pay an extra fee to utilize the fully equipped gym, which has a sauna, aerobics and dance studio. There is also a club that students can join for $10 a month which entitles them to use the Olympic size swimming pool, table tennis and pool tables as well as an international restaurant.
