What is the German BU?

The German Bildungsurlaub is an accredited program in which German employees can take 5 additional days of educational leave (paid vacation) per year, or 10 days in 2 years, that are recognized as a professional advanced training. Spanish classes have become a popular option for Bildungsurlaub. It gives you the opportunity to travel and advance your foreign language skills, while at the same time enjoying a vacation in beautiful, tropical Costa Rica.

Intercultura Costa Rica is recognized for all German Federal States.

We offer different Bildungsurlaub classes depending on the Spanish level and specific area of interest of the employee. The Bildungsurlaub Spanish course is in line with our Intensive Course 30 (group and private classes combined), consisting of 30 lessons per week for a duration of one or two weeks!

During Bildungsurlaub vacation employees receive their regular income, while the costs of the Spanish classes are covered by the employees.
