Spanish Program Logistics
- At Casa Tica, the maximum class size is five students.
- Our teachers are highly qualified and have amassed years of experience teaching in an intensive learning environment. Our professors are friendly, welcoming and accessible to our students at all times. Individualized attention and support is a priority.
- Casa Tica is located in a nice, quiet and safe area outside the city of San Jose. Restaurants, museums, parks and shops are all located within walking distance from the school.
- The public transportation system is reliable and efficient. Additionally, we are always on site or on call to provide all the security and help one may need to master the challenges of daily life in a new country.
Students live with local Costa Rican families. Home stay living arrangements serve to facilitate integration into the culture and accelerate language learning. Students often rate their home stay as one of the most wonderful aspects of their time in Costa Rica.
The host family accepts each new student as a new family member and includes the student in all family activities. Families are carefully screened, and accepted for their “openness” and willingness to embrace students of all races, religions, nationalities, and gender preferences.
Each family provides the student with two healthy daily meals and laundry service. Family members will help with homework and may share many of their own views of their country, stimulating conversation and language fluency.
We work with families who specialize in all types of cooking, including vegetarian and vegan menus. While the family home stay experience is highly recommended, we can make alternative living arrangements if a student should so desire (prices vary).
