Make the Most of Your Costa Rican Adventure

Studying Spanish in Costa Rica

Studying abroad has an endless number of benefits, one being the opportunity to practice another language. Costa Rica is a great place to learn Spanish, while making life-long memories. Here are a few tips to make sure you get the most out of your study abroad experience.

Emerge in the Culture

There will be many opportunities to emerge yourself in the Costa Rican culture. Students will have the opportunity to make traditional Costa Rican dishes, take dance classes and participate in other cultural activities while abroad.  

Make New Friends

A huge benefit of studying abroad is the connection you make with others while being in the country. Be sure to introduce yourself to others as often as possible, and get to know your classmates. Unlike most schools who cater to only one type of student, CRLA Spanish school works with universities and organizations throughout out the world, so you will find a diversified student body, in turn creating an interesting international atmosphere. It is a great opportunity to meet people and make lasting friendships while traveling abroad. In fact, most students keep in contact with their friends abroad long after leaving Costa Rica. 

Practice Spanish 

While it’s true, you can learn Spanish in a classroom anywhere, it is much more effective to be surrounded by the language 24/7. You will find yourself getting better at Spanish each day, as you order meals and communicate with others in the language daily. And CRLA´s homestay program also offers the opportunity to practice Spanish while living with a Costa Rican family.


Another benefit of studying abroad is that you get to incorporate fun into your learning. Spend your free time exploring Costa Rica’s many beautiful sites. Make the most of your experience by visiting beaches and partaking in excursions.  

Try New Things

Don’t be afraid to try new things while on your adventure. When you return home, these are likely to be some of your best stories from being abroad.
