Spanish Intensives

Learning Spanish at ICADS is more than just learning a language. Our classes offer a unique experience to go beyond just grammar, and move towards a deeper understanding of the Central American reality:

DIVERSE STUDENT GROUPS

Our Spanish students come from all over the world, and represent all ages, education levels, and professions, all sharing sensitivity to the beauty and challenges of Central America and a desire to learn more about the region and its people through language training and experiential learning.

COMMUNICATIVE FOCUS

Our Spanish program is based on the ACTFL levels, and students develop reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Through superior-quality materials developed at ICADS and a variety of methods employed by experienced staff according to the needs of the students, our focus is 100% communicative.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Organized activities supplement the language learning experience and expose students to culture and to issues of importance in Costa Rica. Lectures from guest speakers, visits to local museums, and weekend excursions are all available. Additionally, put your Spanish to work outside of the classroom, and dive into Central American reality through volunteering opportunities at local community organizations.*

*Opportunities are contingent upon Spanish level and are determined after arrival.

EVALUATION AND CREDIT

Evaluation in the intensive Spanish programs is based on a combination of participation, homework, tests and quizzes, and oral presentations. ICADS is happy to provide a transcript for credit transfer to your university, however you must notify ICADS at the beginning of the course that you intend to transfer credit. Requests for credit after the course has ended cannot be accommodated.
