Learning Spanish as a senior


Come as a group. Discover a new culture, exercise your brain and create new memories!

Customized Spanish immersion programs for groups can be a fun and rewarding experience! As for Spanish immersion for seniors we offer a combination of a Spanish course, cultural immersion activities and optional weekend travel opportunities. Spanish classes are personalized to your group's needs. Within our Spanish course options you can choose between group classes, private or semi-private classes. Our group classes are small with a minimum of two and a maximum of four students during the corona pandemic. 

Our three-pronged approach to language acquisition includes:

  • Innovative, dynamic language classes tailored to your interests
  • Cultural activities based on local traditions
  • Linguistic immersion through your homestay experience (optional)

Our both campus locations have beautiful facilities and amiable learning environments.

Your senior group can choose to study in Historic Heredia City, right on the beach at our Sámara Beach Campus, or both! Each campus and region has a distinctive character, way of life and charm. Moreover, we encourage you to live with one of our comfortable and friendly host families. With it, we make sure to pick a family that suits you best, according to your age and interests. Homestays offer a private room, laundry service and ample opportunity to practice your new language skills.

  • 20 hours per week group classes*, or a maximum of 15 private lessons, or less if desired
  • One to two mid-week cultural excursions: For example in Heredia: San José historic city tour, café tour, waterfalls. At our beach location in Sámara that can be a ocean dolphin search & snorkeling tour, nature hike, kayaking amon others.
