Why study at Academia Tica Spanish School?
1. Located in the “happiest country on earth”
Costa Rica is a fun and safe country with lots of natural wonders to explore and an interesting culture to experiment. If you’re wondering about where to go in Latin America, start here! It is a great entry point for a trip and the Real Academia Española Director said that the Spanish spoken in Costa Rica is “extremely pleasing to the ear” (2015).
2. Local knowledge
Academia Tica Spanish School is one of the few schools completely owned, managed and run by ticos (also known as Costa Ricans!). It was founded in 1986. We’re from here, and we are happy to be part of the communities where we work, as a small business it’s important for us to contribute to the local economy too. We’re proud and happy to welcome you to this country, its language and its culture.
