Loved the language school. You're tested to see what level you're at and then go to classes with the same teacher each day. Some days we actually went out to the beach to have class. There was food there you could buy, they had computers that you could use, and it walked straight out to the beach.

I studied Spanish at Intercultura Samara for six weeks and I absolutely loved it! Classes four hours per day, delicious empanadas & $5 lunch sold outside of the school every day, a beautiful beach, surf schools, and daily dance class with the wonderful Josue! The teachers and administrators here are so helpful. They do a great job of teaching in... More

I spent a week at Intercultura (Samara Language School). When I embarked on my journey to Samara many people asked how much Spanish did I expect to learn in one week. Between the quality lessons, company of other students, and a home stay with a Tico family, I left with the ability for basic communications and a strong foundation to... More

This is the best language school I ever stayed at. The teachers are highly skilled and motivated. The study materials are up to date, fun and interactive. The classes are very intense but you learn a lot. Expect to improve your Spanish significantly in just days. The school building is tidy, clean and cool. It has a private garden practically... More

My 14 year old daughter and I spent two wonderful weeks at Intercultura in Samara, studying Spanish and learning to surf. The facilities at the school were good and the Spanish instructors were patient and engaging. There were small classes with people of comparable ability, with a good mix of grammar and conversation. Tours arranged by the school were well... More

I spent a week at this campus learning Spanish. I would like to thank Laura, the Director of the school, and of her administrative staff, and especially Jeanette, my Spanish instructor. It was an excellent experience that I will never forget. Julie from Wisconsin

My wife and I spent a pleasant week in Samara learning Spanish and enjoying the laid back llife in Costa Rica. The classes were well run with small classes tailored to one's level of comprehension. Meeting like minded people from around the world is also part of the experience. Highly recommended.

Immersion is definitely the way to go if you want to learn anything, and this is a great place to do it. The staff is awesome, the teachers and friendly and great at teaching solely... More
