Spanish is such a popular second or foreign language to learn that there are plenty of courses one can take at major colleges and universities. In the United States, Spanish is the most studied language in higher learning. And, in the world, it ties with Mandarin and French as the second-most-studied language. But, do you know how is the best way to learn the Spanish language? The Spanish Study Abroad has a lot of benefits, and here, in the Costa Rican Language Academy, we can give to you this big opportunity. Want to know it? Let’s start.
About the Spanish Study Abroad Program
Some students already speak Spanish and want to improve their grammar or vocabulary. Spanish study abroad programs offer your students the chance for immersion as well as a beautiful, fun and enriching experience in a Spanish-speaking country. Interacting with native speakers is a great way of quickly adapting to the language. However, it is even better to study using the immersion method; that is, by having to use the language for most or all of the time.
