Learn Spanish Abroad

When studying or learning Spanish abroad, in a country like Costa Rica, the learning experience will never stop. A study abroad program will immerse you in day to day life where speaking, reading, and listening skills will be necessary to succeed in your communication process.

Living in a different culture means that you will have to solve daily life problems by expressing yourself through a foreign language.

Studying abroad will help you not only with grammar and pronunciation, but also to apply concepts learned in class directly in normal situations around you.

It is important when studying abroad, to force yourself out of your comfort zone, remember that Costa Rican host families are more than willing to help you practice what you learn in class. Furthermore, the host family environment is the best place to start practicing conversations with different topics.

Costa Ricans are famous for their hospitality, always trying to start conversations with people like you. Ask a waiter for the menu, ask people for directions and landmarks. Ask for recommendations for shopping or places for a good coffee, you name it!

No matter if you feel embarrassed the first time you are talking with strangers, keep trying and soon you will see that you will get better and more fluent over time.

Escazú is famous for its culture and unique places. Take advantage of your stay by taking classes that might interest you at ILERI Spanish School.

While learning Spanish abroad you will have the opportunity to learn more than just Spanish. With our program you will choose classes from: Marimba lessons, Costa Rican cooking classes, dancing, biodiversity, and nature.

When learning Spanish abroad you will face the transition from classroom Spanish to real Spanish. The best way to practice real Spanish is to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Most importantly, interact with native speakers in social situations (local activities, slang, or common words).
