WHY STUDY SPANISH WITH INTERCULTURA COSTA RICA?
Our primary goal is to teach you the Spanish language in a warm yet intellectually challenging environment. Classes at both of our campuses – Heredia city and Playa Samara – are conducted entirely in Spanish, providing students from all over the world with a complete and intensive learning experience.
Intercultura’s professors have advanced university degrees and teaching certification, and we are accredited through the US university system, offering undergraduate academic credit to those interested.
The communicative approach in a total immersion context is the most effective method for learning Spanish quickly. Classes are dynamic, interactive, and structured to maximize the language acquisition process in our immersion programs with small classes and 18 different levels.
You’ll get to know Costa Rica, its traditions and its rich cultural heritage by participating in our daily cultural activities and events. On a larger scale, we hope to promote global awareness and tolerance through this sharing of cultures. We believe that participation in programs such as this one teach not only a new language, but also effective tools for communication and understanding in the constantly evolving world culture in which we live.
We believe that there is more to a school than teaching and learning a language. At Intercultura Costa Rica Spanish Schools, we are committed to giving back to the communities that host us through our contributions to, and participation in, a variety of local social development and non-profit initiatives. In addition, our organizational structure aims to provide employment and growth opportunities for local community members and businesses via the implementation of a decentralized and socially-conscious business model. Intercultura is the only Spanish School in Costa Rica awarded membership in the United Nations Global Compact, a network of organizations recognized for their Coporate Social Responsibility programs and their creation of Human Rights, Environmental Protection, Labour and Anti-Corruption initiatives.
We provide accredited programs in collaboration with various universities in the United States. These programs are designed to provide students with a comprehensive and enriching educational experience while also immersing them in the local Costa Rican culture. By partnering with American universities, Intercultura Costa Rica ensures that their programs meet the highest standards of academic excellence and that students can transfer credits to their home institution upon completion.
