My son and fellow high school classmates spent 2 weeks here - what an incredible experience! The teachers and owner (David) made sure each was in the appropriate class for their knowledge of the language. Group activities were fun and very well planned out - nice additions to the classroom experience. The "host family" he stayed with encouraged him to speak the language while in the home; "Mom" was an excellent cook! This area of Costa Rica is so beautiful. The first photo sent back was the ocean view from the school - wow!
After reading "aikidomonkey" reviews (2- done months apart?); I don't know where he/she is coming from. Those comments do not stand up at all to the experience our son had. We could tell immediately how much his Spanish had improved. And most importantly; David and his staff/faculty took very good care of our students during their visit. We would definitely recommend this immersion school, and already have!
