Happy Words from Happy Students

If you want a low-key, relaxed but thorough Spanish immersion experience this is for you. The best thing I can say about Tico Lingo is that the school is run in such a chill way that you don’t ever feel like a tourist. At the same time the teachers are high-quality and you will learn fast.

My confidence in Spanish increased, and the level the school brought me to exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking to learn Spanish. You are going to love the experience and it’s something you will take with you the rest of your life.

Communication is definitely a huge plus at Tico Lingo. I never felt lost or confused and was given all my prep material way before I even arrived. I loved the homestay! They have really created a loving community of people that all work together well and make the whole experience super enjoyable!

Meet Matt from the U.S.

Tico Lingo Alum

Matt came to Tico Lingo from Arkansas saying 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.
