Heredia Spanish School

    Spanish Programs In Heredia

    The Heredia Spanish School in Costa Rica is located in the heart of the town of in Santo Domingo de Heredia. We feel this location is ideal because from this central and convenient location our Spanish language students have easy access to central Heredia and are also minutes away from central San Jose. The Spanish language school offers excellent Spanish programs for beginner to advanced level Spanish students in both group and individual class settings.

    If you can’t decide which Spanish program option to take, you can also select a nice combined Spanish program which includes both group and private instruction. With any of these Spanish program option you can learn Spanish in a very quick time period, and the proof is in the reviews by our former students. Overall this Spanish school has been rated as excellent!

    While there are a variety of Spanish programs offered they all are the same in one respect. All Spanish classes last a full 60 minutes, which is uncommon. Getting a full 60 minutes per class will really help you be immersed in the Spanish language and learn Spanish quickly and effectively.

    Why Learn Spanish In Heredia?
    People who come to Heredia to study Spanish and learn Spanish do so because they want to live in an area that has a small town feel yet still offers all the amenities of living in a large metro area (San Jose). The Heredia Spanish School is only about 20 minutes away from downtown San Jose by public transportation which is both common and inexpensive. Another thing to consider is the fact that fewer tourists are found in this area vs some of the beach areas.  

    Each of the Spanish language teachers has extensive experience at teaching Spanish as a foreign language. The Heredia Spanish School also provides continual teacher training to further enhance the teachers expertise and to provide a great learning environment for our Spanish language who come to Costa Rica to study and learn Spanish.

    During a typical week the Spanish language school regularly has 25 to 35 students per week within their various Spanish programs. Students can study Spanish in group classes, in private classes, or in combined group and private classes.

    During breaks the students can enjoy the climate either on the terraces or the comfortable gardens surrounding the Spanish school. On really nice days it is not uncommon to have some students taking their classes outdoors.

    In addition to well thought out Spanish programs, the Heredia Spanish School provides a variety of interesting cultural activities and weekend excursions. The activities and excursions are designed to allow you to discover Costa Rica while at the same time providing more opportunities to practice the Spanish you learn in class.

    We feel that the Heredia Spanish School offers a wonderful range of interesting Spanish programs. If you want to study and learn Spanish in a location with a small town feel, then strongly consider this location.
