Are you ready to immerse yourself in the Spanish language and experience the nature of Costa Rica? Practice and grow your Spanish proficiency in this three-week intensive immersion program in San José. Live with a Costa Rican family (depending on COVID-19 restrictions) and take daily lessons with native speakers. You will also have the chance to participate in local cultural activities organized by ILISA and explore the San José area, its culture and history. As well, there are daily activities and weekend excursions to beautiful volcanoes, majestic waterfalls and beaches. A visit to a coffee plantation is also on the agenda.
Classes are offered at all levels and are taught by Costa Rican professors five days a week. The three-week ILISA program includes 20 language lessons addressing function and communication skills.
Also included are cultural activities such as cooking classes, dance classes, visits to museums and more. Cultural activities and tours reinforce a student’s proficiency in the language and foster an understanding of the culture.
Available courses: Students must enroll in at least one course from the list below. Please note that students cannot complete the two semesters of foreign language requirements during this three-week program. However, you can extend your stay for three more weeks and complete a second semester.
Note: Please talk to an advisor to ensure you have met all college enrollment requirements AND course prerequisites.
Spanish immersion gives you a chance to receive daily classes completely in Spanish and always abiding by our rule of “no English in the classroom.”
If for any reason you have a different date in mind, let us know since we will have many other sessions during the summer.
