Classes at our School for Residents & Expats

This Spanish program is designed for those seeking to improve their Spanish while living abroad in Costa Rica. Spanish classes at our facilities can be in a group or private sessions.

Group classes: this option is ideal for students who want to learn Spanish and share time with students from other countries. The groups have no more than eight students. We have groups in the morning or at night; it is essential to see the groups’ level according to their level.

Important: At this time, due to COVID-19, group classes at our school are not allowed. We are interested in the health of our students.

Private classes: This option is ideal for students who need to take their most personalized study course or whose availability of time to study does not coincide with group class schedules. In private classes, students can work on their most specific needs.

At the Spanish school for residents and expats in Escazú, we focus on what the resident/expat needs to know to live here in Costa Rica day by day. Spanish School for Residents and Expats focuses on precisely what you need to learn to function in a Spanish-speaking country. We also focus on strengthening and refining each student’s vocabulary and language skills by keeping our classes small and intimate.

We believe that the best approach to teaching Spanish is to teach students what they need to know in real-life situations. You will learn what to say in a bank, restaurant, government office, supermarket, pharmacy, grocery store, or taxi driver. This approach not only increases your confidence; it also allows you better to take your experience to a whole new level.
