OVERVIEW

There’s no better way to learn a new language than to experience the culture up close and personal! Our Language Immersion in Costa Rica program allows students to improve their Spanish conversation skills, reinforce correct grammar and expand vocabulary. Partnered with classroom learning, this trip will help students experience the Latin American culture through hands-on learning opportunities including Latin dance lessons and cooking classes.
