Teen Program Specifics

Mornings: SPANISH CLASSES

Conversation is the GOAL! Students are divided into classes with other teens based on speaking ability to make the most of their Spanish language classes. Mini groups – maximum 5 per class - allows students to talk a lot and receive quality, personalized instruction.

Afternoons: ADVENTURE

Costa Rica is THE country for adventures! Top notch canopy zip-line, cloud forest hiking, city exploring, Pacific Ocean sailing, sea snorkeling & surfing, and much more! Every day CPI skillfully combines adventure and Spanish classes to provide an action-packed and fun learning experience for teenagers.

Evenings: HOMESTAY

Homestay = language immersion = the icing on the cake to this premier TEEN Spanish immersion experience! This program was designed especially for those looking to significantly improve their language abilities, and staying with a host family permits students to speak an amazing amount of Spanish with native speakers as well as gain a profound understanding of the culture.
