Spanish course at Heredia, Costa Rica

Intercultura school for students in spanish & english

I'll be studying spanish in Intercultura at Heredia in Costa Rica this week. Teachers are professional language teachers and the athmosphere at the school is relaxed and motivated. Stuff is extremely helpful and friendly. I'll have spanish lessons 4 hours per day from Monday to Friday.

My spanish teacher, Nuria

I'm staying at a homestay in a local family, not far away from the school. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the school. Heredia is small city just 11 kms from the capital San Jose and therefore it's more relaxed environment than huge San Jose to enjoy and learn new language. My family is just great, excellent and delicious breakfasts and dinners together with family. Good practice for spanish to discuss with family members and get to know Costa Rican way of life more closely.

  1. Hola Antti! En mi libro de espanol hay una capitulo interesante, que conta de comercio justo de Costa Rica y Nicaraqua: El comercio justo le garantiza al productor un precio minimo que no depende de los cambios del mercado internacional del café. De esta forma, el pequeno productor puede mejorar sus condiciones de vida, dar estudios a sus hijos e invertir en su tierra. El vocabulario de Costa Rica en tu foto era muy divertido! Saludos, Ari

  2. Hola Ari,

  3. Very interesting, I would like to move to Costa Rica, but first I need to find a lot and learn a little Spanish.

  4. Costa Rica is a country with an extremely sense of freedom. The landscapes are for many people the greenest in whole center America. The chances of investments are very high; the average of Americans, European and people of the entire planet who are buying here is up in the sky!!! Great investment opportunity in Costa Rica real state in costa rica
