My three month stay at Tico Lingo!

I stayed at Tico Lingo for 3 months and it was an experience I will never forget! I came to Tico Lingo knowing little to nothing when it came to speaking the language and left being able to hold conversations with my host mom and most of all, I had much more confidence in starting conversations and in continuing my studying of the Spanish language. I had Zaida as my teacher for most of my time at Tico Lingo and I cannot say enough wonderful things about that woman. She is such a light and pleasure to learn from. She has a gift of patience with her students, as she had to review things quite a bit for me. She makes you feel right at home and treats you like family. Freddy was my teacher for the rest of my stay and in the small amount of time I studied with him, I grew exponentially! He has a true gift of teaching Spanish and making it very easy to understand. I was able to visit many places while I was there and met some awesome people, as there are different people who come every week. I recommend the cooking classes, dancing and yoga that they offer, they were all great!! My host mom became like family and I still keep in contact with her as well as the teachers and staff at the school. I will definitely be back to visit! I can go on and on, but recommend you check it out yourself, you won't regret it!

Conversational Classes

I was eager to start learning conversational Spanish again after a year long break. Quarantine was the perfect time and helped me feel more structured once my second semester ended. It was always enjoyable and engaging. My professor and the coordinator were very accommodating to my schedule changing in the fall. I have learned so much about the language and the culture in Costa Rica and hope I can visit someday. I recommend this program to anyone and everyone who wants to meet new people and start learning a new language!

Highly Recommend Tico Lingo Online

I absolutely recommend online Spanish classes with Tico Lingo. After the consultation call with Yenifer, I signed up for 10 hours of online instruction with Zulma. There were several class times that worked well for me and scheduling was easy! As I'm new to Spanish, Zulma gave me vocabulary to learn and taught me basic conversation phrases and skills. I loved talking with Zulma! Taking classes with Tico Lingo from home gave me structured lessons and made me excited to study. I look forward to taking classes at the school one day. For now, I plan to sign up for more classes online.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Learning to speak in all Spanish! Zulma was very patient with me and helped me be more confident in articulating my thoughts.

Highly recommend

Not only did Tico Lingo show me the beauties of Costa Rica, I also had the great privilege to be emerged into Tico culture. For three weeks, I lived with Hellen and her beautiful family. Hellen was perfect, since she knew all about Celiacs Disease, and she ensures I never had any gluten. She made me feel safe and comfortable, which I feel is necessary when traveling to a different country. My conversational skills improved immensely while at Tico Lingo, and I am now a much more confident speaker. Lastly, I met people who I will be close to my entire life. If you are looking to be fully immersed into the Costa Rican culture, meet many amazing people, all while exponentially improving your Spanish, then tico lingo is for you.

What was your funniest moment?
To many! One of the students, Chris, who was from the Ivory Coast, and I got along very well. We had many laughs along the way!

Online Spanish is fun!

I had originally planned to go to Costa Rica in June but wasn't able to due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tico Lingo gave me the option to use my deposit for online classes, and I'll admit I was a bit skeptical. I said sure, let's go for it, and the process was actually really smooth. Classes are all on zoom and they send me reminders before each class starts. My teacher picked up on my Spanish level almost immediately and I began improving my speaking abilities within the first few classes. I'm given a good amount of homework and could see myself continuing classes for the next few months! Love the experience! Ya hablo un poco de español y estoy lista aprender mas! :)

Tico Lingo Spanish Classes

I have been wanting to learn to speak Spanish for a long time. I heard of the Tico Lingo immersion experience and would love to go to Costa Rica for the full experience but with the pandemic such travel has not been an option. When I heard Tico Lingo was offering an on line live learning experience I decided to give it a try. I have been taking classes remotely through Zoom over the past two months and it has been an amazing experience! My teacher Zaida is fabulous and makes the personal one:one learning experience both fun and effective. It has far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend Tico Lingo to anyone wanting to learn Spanish quickly in a fun way!

Great class

The classes rule. They're flexible and my teacher is always dialed in on what I need to advance my speaking skills. Zoom and whatsapp work great for connecting and sharing material. I get reminders every day I have a class, which helps tremendously. The face to face online class boosts my confidence to speak to spanish speaking coworkers and clients and gives me the freedom to make tons of dumb errors as I know I can bring those to my online Spanish class and work on those there. Overall great experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to improve their speaking abilities.

Quarantine Spanish

I was scheduled to visit Tico Lingo in July for 3 weeks for the Spanish Immersion program. With the current state of affairs I was devastated that I would not be learning with Tico Lingo this summer. However, they have accepted the challenge of quarantine and this pandemic and set up their Zoom classes pretty flawlessly from my experience. Between WhatsApp and Zoom I feel extremely prepared with materials sent to me and engage in interactions that really cater to my personal Spanish learning style needs. The staff has been exceptional and on top of anything I needed as well as sending nice reminders for class times and Zoom links. I am taking 20 hours of personal classes at the moment and would consider more. I feel confident taking on Spanish language challenges in my spare time as well because I know I can bring questions to class with me and have them answered. Being able to actually practice speaking and listening in real time has been invaluable. I truly hope to one day visit them in Costa Rica and continue this journey. Thank you Tico Lingo!
