Spanish Courses in Costa Rica

Spanish for Families

The Parent and Child Spanish Program in Costa Rica   New in 2006

Do you want to see the best of Costa Rica, while having a true cultural experience learning Spanish and also developing your knowledge and that of your children? Our Spanish for Families program is designed so that everyone in the family has a fantastic time on vacation!

The Parent & Child Program is designed for kids from 10 to 16 years old to study Spanish together with their parents. This program creates an experiential setting that, in addition to develop Spanish proficiency, offers ecotourism and cultural experiences to families. These experiences will improve your knowledge at the same time that it strengthens the parent child relationship. Parents and their kids can learn or improve their Spanish during the first hours of the morning in a Spanish course with 10 lessons per week, each one in a group at their respective level. Parent and child also participate in cultural and entertainment activities together that will give them an opportunity to interact, talk and really get to know each other again. This 2 week program is available during May, June, July and August.
