Our Mission

Our Six Fold Mission

To offer high quality and effective Spanish language instruction through dynamic teaching methods developed by our professional team.

To provide Spanish students with a total immersion program so that they are exposed to an authentic Costa Rican cultural experience.

Personal Attention
To center our Spanish courses around students and their individual language goals and needs providing an intimate class size and a variety of programs and schedules.

Individual Assistance
To have staff that is knowledgeable and dedicated exclusively to the well-being of each student while they are living and traveling in Costa Rica.

Warm Environment
To create an environment where students will constantly feel encouraged to practice their Spanish language skills. In our home-like atmosphere students will also have the opportunity to make long lasting friendships with Costa Ricans as well as with students from many other countries.

Community Support
To lend a hand to the local community by providing a livelihood to Costa Rican families as well as by coordinating volunteer work in social and ecological projects that have a positive impact.

CRLA also makes regular donations to various local community organizations.
