Learn Spanish in San José



Experience Costa Rica’s incredibly colourful capital city! Learn Spanish in San José and discover colonial grandeur, exceptionally friendly people and an amazingly rich culture! You’re never far from nature in Costa Rica. Dense rain forests, soaring mountain peaks and all manner of wildlife are within easy reach of San José. Study Spanish at our San José school for a truly unforgettable trip, and complete immersion in the Costa Rican culture! Small class sizes (of just two or three students on average), mean that you’ll soon be speaking Spanish with confidence.

Our school in San José

Our San José school is situated in a safe residential area of the capital, just ten minutes away from the very heart of the city. The modern school building has 17 comfortable classrooms, a computer room, and is purpose-built for teaching languages.

Courses in San José

As in all of our schools, the Spanish courses are taught by experienced, native tutors. The Intensive course consists of 20 Spanish lessons every week, with a maximum of only eight students in each lesson. In classes as small as this, you receive plenty of personal attention from teachers, so naturally your Spanish will progress rapidly! For even more individual time with teachers, the school also offers a course of 20 Private Lessons per week. Or combine the benefits of both approaches with our Combined Course. This option gives you 20 group lessons and 10 Private Lessons each week.

A great way to help the local community, and practice your Spanish as well, is through volunteer work. Our school arranges participation in various projects, including rain forest conservation and childcare.


Stay with a Costa Rican host family for even more Spanish practice! Enjoy two meals each day and the famous Costa Rican hospitality! Or you might prefer to have your own space whilst you learn Spanish in San José. Our school’s three-bedroom apartments are very close to the school, and have free Internet access, cable TV and a cleaning service. Choose to share your fully-furnished apartment with your fellow students, or keep the place to yourself.


In your free time, you can join our school’s extra-curricular leisure programme. Lessons in Merengue, Salsa and Costa Rican cookery, movie-nights and museum visits are just some of the activities on offer!

How to get there

Upon your arrival at San José Airport, representatives of our school will collect you and take you directly to your accommodation, free of charge.
