24/7 Homestay Spanish Learning
…return home speaking like a native! Progress naturally within an authentic environment.
YEAR-ROUND AT OUR HISTORIC HEREDIA CITY CAMPUS
Immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture with constant companionship and instruction in Spanish, while living full-board in one of our qualified and comfortable homestay families. This 24/7 total immersion program is the most efficient way to accelerate your Spanish learning.
On your first day, you will attend orientation, class and activities at the school campus, located a short walk from your homestay.
From then on, you will either:
- receive your 1-on-1 tuition Spanish instruction with one of our most experienced and qualified teachers in your homestay facility, or
- continue in a private classroom on campus, or
- opt for our regular Spanish group classes on campus (max. 5 or 6 students per class).
Outside of classes, you will be with your homestay family the majority of the time, for meals and daily life, but you will still of course have full access to the school facilities and activities whenever you wish.
You will surround yourself with native Spanish speakers and become fluent within a short time, through your intensive private classes adapted to your needs and interests. In only a few weeks, you can improve your fluency and comprehension in Spanish in a way you never thought possible. This program offers you a highly effective and enjoyable Spanish learning experience.
