Why learn Spanish in Costa Rica?
Instead of having to learn hundreds of words through an app or take classes without your fellow students, a Spanish language course in Costa Rica offers you a unique immersion in the Spanish language. It goes without saying that the quickest way to learn a new language is where the language is spoken natively. You will then be surrounded by language all day long and will be motivated to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice.
The results are thus clearly visible after a very short time! But that is certainly not the only advantage of learning Spanish in Costa Rica. You will get an intensive immersion in Costa Rican traditions and customs at the same time. In this way you also develop an understanding of the culture and collect valuable intercultural competences. That's why we love Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
