Why Do Students Prefer CRLA?

Why students prefer us

At CRLA, we have been serving students from around the globe and helping them learn Spanish since 1989. When our students do an immersion program to learn Spanish abroad, they get a one-of-a-kind experience in beautiful Costa Rica.
While we could talk about our program all day, sometimes it’s most informative to just let the words of our past clients speak for us. This way, if you want to learn Spanish in Costa Rica, you can have an idea of what you’ll experience with CRLA. And, aside from this post, you can find more reviews here, and video testimonials here.

The Best Instructors and Academics

Of course, the main reason someone chooses to participate in a Spanish immersion program is to absorb as much of the language as possible. Our students rave about how, “classes are based on your level, no matter where you are starting off and the teaching staff understands what your needs are and how to get you started!” People also love how “the small classes let us get to know our professors on a one-to-one basis. They not only taught us but became our lifelong friends.” You can find many more reviews on our website about how kind, patient, and professional our staff is.

Comfortable Learning Environment

Our students also comment about how beautiful the environment of our school is. When doing a study abroad program, you come to learn but you also want to have fun. You will spend time studying in a Spanish school that our student described as a “beautiful and quaint place to study”.  Learning comes easy with our small class sizes, where students get plenty of individualized attention from the teachers.

Amazing People

We are so proud that many of our students comment about how wonderful all their classmates and teachers were. One student said, “Being at CRLA was like having a second family,” while another said they we are, “so grateful to all the staff for their unwavering kindness and patience.” When you come to a CRLA program, the people you learn from and those you learn with will both make a real impact on your life!

All-Around Fun!

Besides learning the Spanish language, we also value teaching the Costa Rican culture. Our students love that they get to learn how to cook Costa Rican foods, dance, and so much more. One student shared with us, “I´m returning to my country as a better Spanish speaker, a better dancer, and now I can even cook!” Who could ask for more than that!?
