Zydia and Freddy were fantastic! Just go and have fun, everyone is very supportive! Class sizes are small and the setting is great.

This is my second time visiting Tico Lingo, and I had an even better time than before! The school has grown leaps and bounds, and I was able to learn and practice my spanish more than I imagined. I highly recommend this school to anyone that wants to learn spanish, meets lots of people, explore a cool city, stay with a great homestay family, and even learn how to cook traditional Costa Rican Foods! A+++

Tico Lingo captures all the beautiful things learning a new language can bring into your life and places it in the perfect package. I spent four weeks learning spanish from a complete beginner level, after three weeks I found myself speaking with natives and even able to use witty and sarcastic responses. This trip was a long-held dream come true. I proudly recommend the Tico Lingo experience to anyone willing to listen because the reasons you'll have a wonderful time are endless. Thank you Chris, Yenifer and Yami and all the wonderful professors and guest teachers for all you do to bring the spanish learning experience to life. See you all next time!

Tico Lingo is such a great school! My experience in Costa Rica was amazing thanks to Tico Lingo 😊. I love that they provided guidance and resources but also freedom to let me explore and travel on my own.

I went to Tico Lingo for Spanish classes for 2 weeks and had an amazing experience. This was my first time traveling solo internationally and I felt extremely comfortable in Heredia thanks to all the awesome people at the school. Special shoutout to Chris, Yenifer, Professora Jimenez, and the rest of the team - so kind and helpful! Todos los personas en Tico Lingo son simpaticos y me ayudaron mucho a estudiar espanol. Tenia un bueno experiencia alli y me gustaria regresar pronto! Pura Vida!
