To really learn Spanish it is best to be completely immersed in the local culture and language.  Language immersion lessons can be arranged for all levels of students:  beginner, intermediate and advanced. 

Classes include 10 hours of instruction per week (2 hours per day/5 days a week).  Lessons are personalized, one-on-one with a local licensed tutor.  In addition to the language lessons volunteer can arrange salsa, merengue, and cooking lessons locally.  Language immersion lessons can be combined with half day volunteering in the Escazu social or medical welfare projects.
