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 8 hours of instruction per week (2 hours per day/4 days a week), you can buy more hours locally if you need. Lessons are personalized, one-on-one with a local licensed tutor. In addition to the language lessons volunteer can arrange for an extra fee: salsa, merengue, and cooking lessons locally.  Language immersion lessons can be combined with half day volunteering in the Escazu social or medical welfare projects.
