Our immersion classes follow a very comfortable and cultural approach due to our limit of eight students per class. Nevertheless, we make sure to stay focused during our classes in order to get you speaking Spanish as soon as possible.
There is no better way to truly understand the culture and dominate the Spanish language than by staying with a local family that can offer students a true immersion experience.
From Kayaking and mountain biking to exploring the wonders of a Costa Rican coffee farm, Spanish Pura Vida will give you the adventure of a lifetime guided by our highly trained bilingual tour guides.
Our mission is to teach, to immerse and to inspire a life-changing experience for our students through classroom activities and cross cultural immersion by combining the power of conversation with formal grammatical instruction. This combination has proven to be the most effective and exciting teaching method.
