Official Description (Provided by language school)
Academia Tica (est. 1986) is a leader in the Spanish teaching in Central America. The school is an Instituto Cervantes Accredited Center with two locations in Costa Rica.
The school provides flexible intensive Spanish programs and a variety of special programs including Surf & Spanish, cultural activities, volunteering projects and internships. Students can combine their stay in both Coronado (in the mountains, close to the city and the cloud forest) and JacÃ³ Beach (surf town in the Central Pacific coast) campus to get to know more of the beautiful country and the different landscapes it has.
The JacÃ³ campus features a nice tropical garden and both inside and outside classrooms. Students can enjoy the pool, wifi, computers for student use and bikes for rent. Students can also book all the tourism services and surf lessons they wish right at the school at no extra charge.
The school program is student-centered, interactive and includes different activities to make learning fun and fast. All methodology and materials follow the Instituto Cervantes guidelines for teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
The teachers are highly prepared and experienced and the school is always looking for ways to improve both its teaching and the general experience of students at the school and in Costa Rica. Everyone that works at Academia Tica is there to help and happy to share the language, the culture and the country.
Students can stay with one of our carefully picked families or at the school's shared student accommodations (apartments/residence).
