Nosara Spanish Institute Reviews
3 months at Nosara Spanish Institute
Submitted by Alethea - UQ | April 11, 2018
I attended Nosara Spanish Institute to improve my Spanish for a uni course I had to take thereafter. I stayed almost three months. Every teacher is magnificent, patient and interested; they have their individual styles but the high quality is consistent among all. The class sizes are small allowing equal opportunity to engage with practical and theoretical content. The lesson plans are adapted to your needs/wants. Admin goes above and beyond to provide a holistic experience (cooking/dance classes, social outings, and if the season is right excursions to see turtles nesting at sunrise). The school is set among trees near the beach, creating a calm learning environment.
My host family were beautiful, generous and genuine people and I will remain close friends with them always. I owe at least half of my Spanish to their gentle and patient guidance!

I HIGHLY recommend Nosara Spanish Institute. It's a small school (there was only one other person in my class), so it's very personal. All teachers, students and staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. We took affordable, well-planned excursions together. Walking distance to the beach, grocery store and yoga!

I went with my dad here in August of 2016. It was an amazing experience, and I could not have been more impressed with the high quality Spanish instruction, collegiality, and organization of Nosara Spanish Institute. I HIGHLY recommend.

Going to the Nosara Spanish Institute was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica! The class sizes were small and the instructor great and staff were friendly and helpful. This was my second trip to Costa Rica and I really wish I would have gone straight to this school on the first trip! Its a great way to get some working knowledge of Spanish language and the local culture...being able to speak and understand even a little bit of Spanish really enhances the experience of visiting Latin america!

I had not formally studied Spanish for over 25 years and needed conversation practice and a thorough review. I was only able to stay for just over a week, but the Intensive Spanish program was fantastic, with small class sizes and individualized lessons. Nosara was the perfect setting for my first time travelling alone in many, many years. I felt safe within the small, quiet community and the shared home-stay at Casa Matias. My interactions with the staff at the school, as well as my home-stay family, gave me the confidence I needed to independently explore the surrounding areas and communities to practice my Spanish. The shared home-stay was easily accessible and the home cooked meals were the best!!
