I had an amazing experience at Tico Lingo. The school was so well run, great people, school culture, and very strong instruction. I met interesting spanish-learning travelers and also lovely families who were on the homestay side. This program is also special because it is so central — you live in a real town, being truly immersed in the culture and language, and experience day-day life as Heredian’s do. You walk through town each day on your way to school inevitably see and talk to the same neighborly Tico’s along the way. It’s also super easy to plan great trips on the weekends as the location is central and accessible to almost everything.
If you really want to learn spanish and experience the amazing country and culture of Costa Rica — and, know your school is well-run and everything is seamless, choose Tico Lingo. Stay at a family home, support, experience and learn from these families who open their doors to you — really be in it, and it will come back to you threefold. I can’t say enough about this school only that I wish I had a few more weeks there.
Thanks to Chris, Yenifer, Kevin, Zulma and everyone there! I hope to be back soon.
