Airport pick-up and return
Two meals: a good breakfast and a main meal
PLEASE NOTE :
1. Homestays start on the weekend prior to the first date for lessons.2. Students with homestay will be picked up at the airport for immediate transfer to their host family.3. INTENSA makes a real, reasonable effort to group students according to their oral proficiency level. It sometimes happens, however, that a student’s level does not correspond to any of the existing levels, in which case the student will be given three hours of private lessons instead of four in a group at no extra cost, until another student is found at the same level.
While we encourage students to take advantage of the homestay for the cultural experience, some of our students prefer or find it necessary to stay in a hotel or apartment for the time they are here in Costa Rica. In which case, Intensa can supply a list of nearby, reasonably priced hotels upon request. Our personnel will be glad to help making reservations and obtaining a student discount rate whenever possible.
Students who choose alternate lodging should deduct $140 per week from the fees shown and are responsible for arranging their own transfer to and from the airport.
Intensa exceeded all of my expectations for learning Spanish. I enjoyed the program and most of all my instructors. The outgoing and eager to teach attitudes by them made it a pleasure to be in class. I am very excited to
take my newly developed Spanish skills back home with me to the U.S.!
My experience at Intensa was excellent. The facility, teacher, and staff were very professional and nice. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn spanish in an intensive program.
When you learn Spanish at school, you memorize many tenses, conjugations, and lots of vocabulary, however, when you learn Spanish at Intensa, you learn more than just things in books. You learn how to express yourself in the correct way, how to communicate, and how to build relationships with people that possess totally different cultural backgrounds with great professors and staff members. Coming from a different country and not speaking good Spanish made me nervous, but I found my confidence at Intensa and my Spanish improved so much in only three weeks. Do you want to learn more Spanish and enjoy your life at the same time? Intensa will be your best choice.
