Immerse Yourself in Spanish on the Beautiful Beaches
of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

ACADEMIA DE ESPAÑOL D'AMORE cordially invites you to participate in a unique study vacation in Costa Rica.

Spanish is one of the principal languages of the world with half a billion speakers in over twenty countries.  ACADEMIA DE ESPAÑOL D'AMORE is a quality educational institution created to facilitate the learning of Spanish, in one of the most beautiful areas of Costa Rica. They incorporate the Total immersion process of education to ensure the most efficient learning experience possible.


The student body is widely varied.  With an average age of 29, the "typical student" can be anyone from a college student, to business professional, doctor, lawyer or retiree who appreciates life and the need to never stop learning.


Only 30 minutes by plane from the Capital city of San Jose, ACADEMIA DE ESPAÑOL D'AMORE is located in the Mid-Pacific coastal area of Manuel Antonio just southwest of the town of Quepos. Manuel Antonio is widely described as a tropical paradise and rightfully so.


The white sandy beaches and high cliffs are situated in a vibrant rain forest full of extraordinary flora and fauna, surrounded by an endless blue sea. It is home to over 100 species of mammals and 184 species of exotic birds. Marine life is abundant in the park and the 12 surrounding islands and back on land, Howler monkeys cry mournfully as locals relax in the shade of the almond and coconut palms.


The school’s staff relishes the opportunity to live and work in this pristine locale and they also recognize how fragile this paradise is. It is for this reason that upon enrolling in ACADEMIA DE ESPAÑOL D'AMORE, the school will donate a percentage of your tuition, in your name, to the World Wildlife Fund allowing you the opportunity to collaborate in the preservation of the world's rainforests.


ACADEMIA DE ESPAÑOL D'AMORE offers a very interactive methodology based on the Communicative Approach through the Total Immersion Methodology of Teaching. This is a way of teaching in which the target language is taught with strong active use without using any translations at all, and it is completely intended to help students achieve communicative competence since day one.


Students learn the Spanish language in a country where it is spoken and, for those applying in the home stay program, interact with Costa Rican families. This methodology stresses a means of organizing a language syllabus, and the emphasis is on breaking down the global concept of language into units of analysis in terms of communicative situations in which they are used.
