At CRLA, you don’t have to learn in a brick and mortar classroom. With our Spanish on the Road program designed for groups, you and your friends or colleagues can take your lessons at some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful destinations. Ditch your desk and learn your pronouns on the evergreen shrouded, picturesque white sands of Manuel Antonio Beach. Converse with new friends as you swim in the refreshing waters of La Fortuna, or practice identifying the rich array of local wildlife while soaking in the crystal-blue waters of the Rio Celeste de Guatuso.
For the practically minded, CRLA’s program is useful, too. In today’s job market, bilingual and polylingual Spanish speakers are more in-demand than ever.
Whether you or your young adult has never been able to learn Spanish or is currently learning, our programs can help on their path to fluency. We offer some of the best Spanish immersion programs for adults out there. Science says that the best way to learn a language is to be fully immersed in it. Even though traditional language instruction can be beneficial, a recent study regarding traditional language learning vs. immersion; it was determined that while both groups retained their new vocabulary, only those taught with immersion exhibited the same brain patterns as native speakers while using their new language. “Practice makes perfect,” and by studying abroad in Costa Rica, practice is exactly what you’re going to get. Brick-and-mortar classes in the English-speaking world offer little opportunity to practice what is being learned; but at CRLA, you’ll have the opportunity to speak Spanish every day with locals.
CRLA welcomes adults of every age and stage. Our programs are perfect for college students, teachers, and anyone who wants to learn Spanish. No matter who you are, or where you are in life, a study abroad in Costa Rica is the perfect gift this season. Just make sure you’re ready for an adventure!
