Project Overview: Our Learn and Study Spanish program was designed to give upcoming volunteers a chance to get to know the Costa Rican people, environment, and culture while bettering their Spanish skills. Attendance will be at a language school that welcomes students of all levels. You'll be provided with plenty of fun, immersive activities in which you can learn Spanish and practice conversing with fellow students and the locals of San Jose.
You'll be taught according to the methods of the school founder, Dona Guiselle Quesada. She used more than 30 years of experience teaching Spanish to develop a system that helps students master Spanish essentials and practical communication . After finishing your course, you'll be able to get the most out of your following volunteer projects in Costa Rica, where you'll use Spanish daily. Past students have confirmed how helpful this program has been in helping them work and develop friendships with native speakers in Costa Rica.
What will I be doing? You'll participate in daily lessons to learn the basics of Spanish and develop more advanced language skills. The curriculum is versatile, challenging you through fun and interesting activities with your classmates. Your accommodations with a host family will give you a unique opportunity to practice and learn Spanish outside of your lessons.
Where will I be volunteering? You will be based in San Pedro, a well-to-do area in downtown San Jose. Situated on the eastern side of the capital, San Pedro is one of the most popular neighborhoods of San Jose.
The language school is located in a safe and tranquil middle class suburb of San Pedro. San Pedro is a very sophisticated area with many attractions and a variety of shops, restaurants and bars.
What will be my schedule? The project schedule requires that you work 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, for a maximum of 4 hours per day in the mornings.
