Studying Spanish abroad, at Intercultura Costa Rica in Heredia, was more amazing than anything I could have hoped for.  I'm from Maryland, and studied Spanish in high school and college.  But sometimes when I would speak Spanish, people would mention that I kind of sounded like I was reading from a textbook.  No surprise there- I learned Spanish from textbooks!  In 2014, I made up my mind that I would improve my Spanish by going abroad. 

Costa Rica is not what I had expected at all. Every day holds new lessons; whether it be on the rich and diverse culture, on learning a new language or just experiencing travelling alone on the other side of the world.

"I came to Costa Rica for the first time in the summer of 1990 to study Spanish and fell in love…with the language, the country, the people, the music, even the monsoon-like rains.


Jane, 59 years old from the USA, has been with Intercultura for quite some time.  In 2009 she came to Intercultura for the first time. Since then she has returned every year. Get inspired by her Costa Rican Spanish learning experience!
