We strongly recommend that students stay with a host family as a complement to language studies as it provides the opportunity to apply the material learned in class. Students staying with a host family are totally immersed in the Costa Rican culture and have the opportunity to practice Spanish daily. The host families are patient and extend themselves to help our students learn Spanish. The family units are diverse - young couples without children, couples with children (of all age groups) and older couples with grown children who are no longer at home. We always do our best to accommodate the students' wishes concerning homestay requests.
The family provides breakfast, dinner and laundry service.
