This program covers Spanish for everyday use. It emphasizes oral proficiency and provides a solid foundation of the language. It is intended for those teenagers who will be traveling by themselves, with a friend or sibling, etc. (without a pre-formed group). They will be placed with a specially selected Costa Rican family with teenage sons or daughters. Most host families have been collaborating with the Institute for several years and have hosted students numerous times. Participants are closely supervised by the Institute and also by the host families. They must abide by the same rules imposed by each family on their own children, and have to comply with an 8:00 P.M. curfew unless accompanied by a host family member. The program includes cultural and sports activities and several guided visits in our private bus to many of the sites and natural treasures that make Costa Rica unique.
