Instituto de Español Costa Rica
Courses / Programs
Our Institute is located in the capital of Costa Rica, San José, in the eastern part called Guadalupe, about 400 m from the State University (Universidad de Costa Rica) and 10 minutes from downtown (using the public bus). San José is situated in the interior of the country, buses leave to every part of the country from here. This makes it easy to reach the beaches, e.g. it is just a 2 hours bus ride to get to Jacó Beach. The aim of the Instituto de Español Costa Rica is to enable students to really communicate in the Spanish language. For this reason our methodology is based on a new concept of Total Immersion in the Spanish language.
All materials integrate Spanish language education in the four linguistic abilities: speaking, comprehension, reading and writing. Our students can decide between small group or individual classes, or Specialized Spanish Programs.
