Learn Spanish and Volunteer in Costa Rica
Costa Rica: Alajuela, Coco Beach, Dominical and 7 other cities
AICR is proud to announce the only organization in Costa Rica providing a full curriculum in Spanish language as well as fully organized Volunteer programs in 5 different areas: Teaching, Children, Community, Ecology, and Professional Experience (Journalism, Tourism, Health, Non for profit, Hotelier, Veterinary, and more); we believe in the sustainability of our programs, that is why we offer very competitive prices, so the agencies working with us can send enough participants for all of us to benefit, from the staff in your and our organization, to the projects, host families; and also the participants.
We offer a Pre Departure sheet, and Project and Family Information sheet to be sent to participants before their arrival; at their arrival we offer pick up from the airport, lodging in a host family for the first days, orientation session and transportation to the project; housing and food for the duration of the project; and the option to come back to a host family the last days of their stay, for them to be near to the airport.
As Spanish School for visitors, volunteers, foreigners moving to Costa Rica and others different than College/University levels; we offer several programs from Beginner to Superior (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Superior levels).
We have special short term intensive immersion courses (from one to six weeks) that stress oral communication and vocabulary related to areas of daily life. For this kind of programs we have specialized instructors, all of them are native speakers of Spanish and they all hold a university degree in Education; most of them "Licenciaturas" in Teaching Spanish or just in Teaching.
For other programs (more College and University oriented) Amistad has a very professional group of Masters and/or Doctors, these professionals mainly teach to groups of College or University students; as we also work and share our Campus with a sister organization offering superior education in Costa Rica, with Teaching Spanish as a Second Language being one of these careers.
