Fun and Effective Spanish Immersion in Costa Rica

Our team is so proud of the level of personal attention you will receive throughout your experience with us that we’ve baked it right into the name. Personalized Spanish is the premiere language school in Costa Rica. You’ll learn Spanish in small groups with no more than two other students – three students total, guaranteed. Our staff is 100% Costa Rican, which means you will be immersed in the Spanish language with professional, friendly teachers who not only love to teach you Spanish, but also to share our love for the people and culture of Costa Rica.

Our staff will create personalized programs that meet your specific Spanish learning needs. It is very important to us that your Costa Rican experience is both effective for learning Spanish and very comfortable, which is why we place you in upscale, local homestays, so you can be immersed in the Spanish language, experience authentic Costa Rican culture, and have all the modern conveniences you need while staying in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. What’s more, through our afterschool, volunteer and/or internship opportunities, your options for cultural immersion will let you experience what Costa Rica and our people are all about, while building your fluency in the Spanish language.

At Personalized Spanish, we have created the most effective, fun, and comfortable Spanish immersion experience in Costa Rica, and look forward to sharing our country, culture and language with you. Pura Vida!

Learning and having fun

Classes are kept small, and the use of English (to explain Spanish) was not really used, contrary to my experience with larger schools where English is used a great deal.``
