Very pleased!

My wife and I spent 3 weeks at the International School taking intensive Spanish in anticipation of moving to Costa Rica. We were very pleased with the accommodations and especially with the one on one language instruction. We learned a lot of Spanish, and just as important, a lot of culture. Wes and Rafa took us all around Heredia and San Jose and introduced us to many families, so we had an experience that other schools don't offer. Wes and Rafa also arranged for a weekend at a beautiful place called Tierras Enamoradas. We had a great experience and highly recommend it to adults or families.

The international Spanish School of Costa Rica provides excellent instruction and care. I attended twice (2008 and 2009) when they were in Heredia, for two weeks each trip. I plan to attend again the next time I go to Costa Rica. Wes and Rafa make learning fun and emphasize learning through conversation. The one on one conversation was just what I needed and wanted to advance my spanish speaking abilities. The class time flew by so quickly. Both trips I opted to stay with a family and that added to the excellent experience. The food was excellent. Wes helped me plan and arranged travel details for weekend trips to see other parts of Costa Rica. I highly recommend studying with Wes and Rafa, especially for those students like me who need practice with speaking and listening. I look forward to studying with them again on my next trip to Costa Rica.

I learned more Spanish in the two months I studied with Wes and Rafa than I learned in the four months I studied in Spain! Amazing experience! My first time studying at the ISSCR was for two months, and I returned a few years later for two weeks more. As a second language instructor myself, my professional opinion is that their approach to teaching is excellent. They assess the student's needs and desires, and create the curriculum to specifically benefit her/him. On a personal note, they are welcoming, accommodating, thoughtful, and genuinely open to all forms of diversity. They went beyond the call of duty on numerous occasions to make my experience the excellent one that it was. A great mix of learning the language, playing tourist, and really experiencing authentic Costa Rican culture. Highly recommended!!
