Going to the Nosara Spanish Institute was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica! The class sizes were small and the instructor great and staff were friendly and helpful. This was my second trip to Costa Rica and I really wish I would have gone straight to this school on the first trip! Its a great way to get some working knowledge of Spanish language and the local culture...being able to speak and understand even a little bit of Spanish really enhances the experience of visiting Latin america!

I had not formally studied Spanish for over 25 years and needed conversation practice and a thorough review. I was only able to stay for just over a week, but the Intensive Spanish program was fantastic, with small class sizes and individualized lessons. Nosara was the perfect setting for my first time travelling alone in many, many years. I felt safe within the small, quiet community and the shared home-stay at Casa Matias. My interactions with the staff at the school, as well as my home-stay family, gave me the confidence I needed to independently explore the surrounding areas and communities to practice my Spanish. The shared home-stay was easily accessible and the home cooked meals were the best!!
The exact way to learn Spanish.

I have worked on my Spanish on my own, online, in tutorial circumstances, in classes. The program at Nosara Spanish Institute is the way to learn Spanish. The instructors are delightful. The pace is perfect for instruction and the environment is supportive and nurturing.
Fantastic Spanish classes!

I had an amazing experience studying Spanish for one week (20 hours) at the Nosara Spanish Institute. I took the beginner level classes with Zully, which were great. I loved how the classes were so intimate- I was one of three students in one class and actually the only student in my other class. I got to know Zully, my teacher, very well and she even shared personal stories and cultural info about Costa Rica, which I really enjoyed. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming! They even organized a couple outings for the students after class and on the weekend. I just wish I had more time than one week to take classes as it was very difficult to really learn and absorb all of the information in such a short time. I would definitely recommend doing at least 2 weeks of classes.
My package also included 2 surf lessons through the Bodhi Tree Resort, which were awesome! The instructors were so informative, fun and really helped me with my form. Not to mention, they ensured first and foremost that we all stayed safe!
Felt part of the community right away

Was a bit intimidated to just jump into intermediate Spanish classes (everyone else had been there for awhile). It ended up being a great experience. It was intense doing classes every day but the teachers I had were good and the classes were well managed. They were very flexible too with the schedule. I did two weeks and was able to immediately see results. Met some great folks and really enjoyed the social events put together for the students by the School.
