Intensive Spanish Immersion in Costa Rica

COSI offers small group classes, private classes, or a combination of group and private courses. Classes emphasize oral communication and teachers are rotated to ensure that learners are exposed to a variety of Spanish accents. The pace of the class is set according to the learners’ language skills and individual progress and language development during your Spanish program.

Small Group Intensive: 4 hours a day

Students meet for four hours per day from Monday through Friday in small groups of eight students or less. Classes usually take place in the morning from 9 AM to 1 PM or in the afternoon from 2 PM to 6 PM. Students are placed in groups based on their level and results on COSI’s placement test.

Private Class Intensive: 4 hours a day

One-on-one instruction is designed especially for people who want to advance at their own pace, work on specific vocabulary, or have other special needs. We recommend private classes for students who are taking classes for only one week. Private classes take place according to your personal preference, either in the morning from 9 AM to 1 PM or in the afternoon from 2 PM to 6 PM.

Small Group Intensive 4 hours + Private Class 2 hours

This program is designed especially for people who want an especially intensive Spanish course and for those who want extra private time with their teacher to reinforce what is being learned in the group classes. The schedule for this program is in the morning from 9 AM to 1 PM and in the afternoon from 2 PM to 4 PM or from 4 PM to 6 PM.
