Overview

Tico Lingo is a language and cultural center devoted to teaching its students the Spanish language through cultural immersion and cross-cultural education. Our aim is to teach, immerse, and initiate a global understanding of Costa Rican culture. Complete with a library, a yoga studio, an organic fruit garden, and five class rooms, we offer students intensive Spanish lessons on site at our school in Costa Rica. We also offer a Homestay program where students live in the homes with local families and share two meals a day with them. Additional programs include Latin dance classes, yoga, adventure tours, cultural tours, and free conversational programs with local English students.
