Tico Lingo Celebration with Alumni

From as young as 5 and as old as 81, Tico Lingo has taught students from all around the world. For some of our alumni, Spanish is their second language, while for others it’s their 4th or 5th. Sometimes Costa Rica is the first country they’ve ever visited, and for others Costa Rica is just another stop on their journey around the world! 

Although diverse in age, nationality, language background, and travel experience, each student arrives at our doors with a passion for the Spanish language and a desire to share and experience Costa Rican culture. Over the weeks they are with us they become our friends and neighbors that progress on their language journey and leave as alumni speaking Spanish and sharing Costa Rican culture, cuisine, and customs.

Tico Lingo Alumni Interview

Meet Matt from Arkansas, U.S.A.

Matt arrived at our doors speaking nothing more than “hola” and “gracias”. After an 8-week program, he was surprised by how much progress he made and wanted to show off his skills in a short interview. Check out the video to hear Matt talk about his experience at Tico Lingo (in Spanish!). He goes over why he chose Costa Rica, what it’s like to live with a local homestay family, and what he liked about the Tico Lingo teaching process.
