CRLA San José
The Costa Rican Language Academy (CRLA) has a great reputation as a provider of quality Spanish education. Besides its quality education, there are also many opportunities to discover more about the local culture through the numerous activities the school has on offer. For example, dancing enthusiasts can combine their language learning with dance classes. The school also provides courses scheduled on Mondays to Thursdays to allow students to travel and explore more of the city and Costa Rica during their weekends.
The school is located in Barrio Dent, a quiet residential and business district in close proximity to the Universidad de Costa Rica campus. The school has ample classrooms, student lounges and even has its own dance and cooking classrooms. During class breaks, the school terrace and garden invite you to relax and get to know your fellow classmates. There are also restaurants, cinemas, shops and banks conveniently located near the school, as is the well-known San Pedro shopping center.
Immersing yourself in the culture is an important part of the language learning process and the school organized activity program is a great opportunity for students to take part in cultural activities. Activities include dance, cooking, and conversation classes, visits to museums, markets, theaters, discos, and restaurants. These activities are offered as a part of the course price or at an affordable price for students. In addition, the school organizes trips further afield to explore the nearby national parks and volcanoes surrounding San Jose and is more than happy to assist their students in planning trips and excursions around Costa Rica.
The staff and teachers at Costa Rica contribute the welcoming and friendly atmosphere. All teachers have a university degree and are accredited by the Costa Rican Department of Education.

CRLA San José - Therese
Everything went really well and my host mom is amazing. She prepares the most delicious meals and especially speaks slowly with me. I am also positively surprised by the school. They made a big effort to put me into the right group with the right language level. I feel comfortable here and think you can also have lunch here and there is free tea and coffee. Even with the heat the rooms are comfortably fresh, I guess all the plants on the patio and the fans help with that.
