Welcome to ILISA’s web site.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.
We know you have seen other school sites so we made sure visiting our site would be worth your time. ILISA on-line is not just an electronic brochure but was developed to give you a complete picture of ALL aspects of language study in Costa Rica and Panama at ILISA, including: preparation, how to get here, the country, and the school itself.
ILISA is a medium-size language school located in a suburb of San José, Costa Rica. In June 2013 we opened our sister school in Panama, at the beautiful neighborhood of El Cangrejo. Our mission is to give you the language skills you need to help you develop yourself professionally or to allow you to better enjoy your travels. To reach these goals, we offer a variety of well-developed yet flexible programs.
Unlike many businesses in the Americas, ILISA encourages gay & lesbian travelers to join us. Not only can you count on a respectful and non-discriminating attitude of any of our staff members and teachers; we’ll also help you to find your way around the local scene. And, should you like to make use of our homestay program, we assure you of a gay-friendly host family. Don’t just take our word for it, read what former students have to say.
Founded in 1987, ILISA has a team of qualified and dedicated Spanish teachers with many years of teaching experience.We have used this experience to train over 5000 people from all over the world. Regardless of your background or current level of proficiency, ILISA will make your study rewarding and enjoyable.
