Testimonials - Spanish in San Jose

I can t think of a better way to learn Spanish and enjoy the country.
(Jeremy, age 70)


I truly had a wonderful time in San Jose. As a non-speaker, I had my doubts. What made my experience so memorable was that Languages Abroad went out of their way to find accommodations for me and my 10 year old daughter with a host family. It was a bonding moment the two weeks we spent together. I would go back again.”

I have never had so much fun in my life! The quality of the teachers was excellent, which was especially important as I was in the most advanced group. The class size varied from 2 for 3 weeks to 5 for 1 week. Students were well placed according to ability. The facilities in San Jose were impressive as was the hospitality (daily tropical fruits, juices, etc.) and extra-curricular activities such as salsa dancing and low cost afternoon excursions. There were two staff members in San Jose dedicated to helping us arrange additional excursions, exchange money and find out other info for us.

The school was very concerned about our health and safety. They had an excellent reputation among host families for being responsible in their placements. I cannot say enough good things about the school.”
