Program Overview

Program Description:
Liberia is an ideal location for studying Spanish and authentic Costa Rican culture. The school is located in the heart of Liberia within walking distance to everything in the city. Liberia has an international airport and is located very close to Guanacaste’s many attractions - beaches, rain and cloud forests, volcanoes, waterfalls and hot springs, national parks, and the border of Nicaragua are just a bus ride away. Unlike the coastal towns, there aren’t many people who speak English in Liberia, so students will definitely be able to practice their Spanish on a daily basis.

The Estelar Spanish program is a one-of-a-kind experience that allows students to be fully immersed in the culture, making it fun and easy to learn Spanish at a rapid pace. The program includes intensive, conversational Spanish classes with a wide variety of extracurricular activities, cultural events, and the chance to meet and interact with the Guanacastecan students in our English program. Spanish students also have the option of staying with a local family which includes authentic Costa Rican meals and constant Spanish practice with the host family. All of our teachers are certified, highly trained, passionate, fun, and dedicated to seeing students learn fast. Our friendly staff is always available to help. At Instituto Estelar, we go the extra mile to make sure that each student is cared for, comfortable, and in the best atmosphere to learn Spanish and experience Costa Rica at the same time! Cultural Activities include language exchanges with our English students, volunteer opportunities, as well as cooking, music, artisan, and dance classes. We also organize bilingual trips so that our students can practice their new language while seeing amazing sites.

Everyone knows that total immersion is the best way to improve quickly in learning a foreign language, and our goal is to offer the best Spanish classes possible at affordable prices so that the exciting immersion experience is accessible to everyone (including children!).
Setting Description:
Instituto Estelar Bilingüe is located in the historic district of Liberia, Costa Rica. We offer dynamic, conversational Spanish courses to international travelers and English courses to locals. Liberia is an ideal spot to study Spanish as it is a typical Costa Rican town where English speakers are scarce and nearby attractions abound (volcanoes, beaches, hot springs, rivers, national parks, etc.). We arrange homestays and provide dance & cooking classes, language intercambios, volunteer activities, and the best Spanish classes for students of any level, age, and background...and all of this at very affordable prices.
Cost:
For 20 hours of group class (maximum 6 students) a week, the cost is $320. Students who pay for multiple weeks of study get a discounted rate for the second ($580), third ($830), and fourth ($1,030) weeks. After four weeks, additional weeks are also offered at a discounted rate. We have an excellent homestay program with carefully selected families within walking distance of the school. Each week costs $170 and includes two meals a day, a private room, laundry service, and airport pick-up and dr
