We're planning on attending a language immersion school in Costa Rica.
Kevin's dad went to the CPI-EDU and had a good experience, so that's where
we're thinking of going. However, I was hopeing to get some feedback from
the group if anyone has attended any language schools in CR or if they know
which school has the best reputation locally.
Thanks in advance!

- Hi Vanessa,
there's a language school in Orosi Valley called Montaña Linda.
They offer different packages at very good rates; for example 4 days
with 3 hours classes daily will cost you $ 99.- and you'll have your
own personal teacher. They also offer simple lodging dormitory style.
Here's their HP : http://www.montanalinda.com
- My choice is Intercultura Language School, in Heredia. It has small
town living, near capital, one week per month at a Samara beach
campus, lots of extras, like dance and cooking classes. The web site
is at www.spanish-intercultura.com
I expect to attend for another 4 week session in January.
The people I met there, most particularly my Tico Family, are what
convinced me that my next home will be not just in Costa Rica, but
most likely in or near Heredia.
Future Tico :)

- Please don´t forget the eboard.
There is a fairly extensive lists of schools, with links, as well as descriptions of people´s experiences at them.
Look under schools, then click the * to reveal the Spanish language link.
We used CPI, which now has three locations (one in Flamingo) and they were open to families and to children.
Many schools will work with you if you contact them. Last time I checked InterCultura required two weeks in Heredia BEFORE you could enroll in the beach program? That may have changed.
