There are a lot of Spanish schools in the world, and it can be hard to choose where to go for the immersion experience, which we all know is crucial for mastering a language. So why choose Instituto Estelar Bilingüe in Liberia, Costa Rica?
There are a lot of great reasons: we are close to an international airport, stunning beaches, rainforests, and volcanoes; we have an effective, structured Spanish program with top-notch teachers; our host families are simply awesome and staying with them is the highlight for many students; we are located in an authentic town with very few tourists; we volunteer to improve our community. These are all great reasons, but there is one more…
As we have both Spanish and English classes in the same colorful building, we offer students the unique opportunity to practice language together in our individual and group intercambios. Not only do these exchanges give students a chance to converse in Spanish, and then English, in a relaxed environment, helping each other improve, but they also provide interesting insights into culture and a chance to make new friends.
