Spanish for Expats in Coco starts on Monday!

This Monday, January 13, 2014, we will start our third session in Playas del Coco of our Spanish for Expats program. We have three groups of 3-6 students in the first, second, and fourth levels. There is still room in two of the classes if you are interested in signing up!

We have made a slight change to the course schedule and are excited to see the results. This session, the classes will meet twice a week instead of once a week, and the course will finish in six weeks instead of three months. We expect to see students progress much better with the additional hours per week. The course schedule is Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30-4:30pm, at Green Life Academy.


Our Spanish for Expats program is specifically designed for people who live in Costa Rica and need to be able to communicate every day in Spanish. Students converse up to 80% of every class, and they also study grammar in order to understand the structure of the language. Each level has two Survival Spanish themes, such as going to the hospital, talking on the phone, or eating at a restaurant, and we also give additional Survival Spanish workshops on these topics that are open to the community and free.

We are excited to also have our Spanglish Social event in Coco every Monday from 5:30 to 6:30pm at Coconutz Bar. This event, also free and open to the community, involves speaking English for 30 minutes, and Spanish for 30 minutes. It’s a fantastic activity for practicing the language and meeting new people. Invite your Tico and Expat friends!
