Language Immersion

Language that Works acknowledges that immersion is the best way to reinforce any language learning experience and offers opportunities for immersion in Costa Rica. LTW immersion opportunities are organized for college students, high school students, and individuals or groups.


LTW offers college students customized programs for internships in specific fields of study, and study abroad Spanish classes from beginner to advanced taught by the faculty of Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica.  Each university study abroad program is customized to meet the academic requirements of the sponsoring university.  Our noncredit courses are offered by Centro Cultural de San Lorenzo through experienced native instructors.


The Academic Student Immersion (ASI) program for high school students is a short-term education immersion opportunity that offers students the opportunity to travel with their fellow students to Costa Rica and experience all the Costa Rica has to offer to include the wildlife, rainforest, volcanoes, as well as culture and traditions. All students must be able to speak Spanish at a basic level at time of departure.


The Language that Works Service Learning Program in Costa Rica provides students an opportunity to combine skills, talents, and passions for community service with language learning and cultural immersion. Our Service Learning Program offers the opportunity of working alongside Ticos (local native Costa Ricans) while enjoying the vast beauty of the countryside and the unique diversity of wildlife. You will leave Costa Rica knowing that you have made a positive impact on the community, while improving your Spanish.
