High School Spanish Immersion in Costa Rica

Teens Love our Spanish Immersion Camps and Trips in Costa Rica

-Registration OPEN for summer 2015-

Common Ground International has a long history of helping high school Spanish students become more proficient in Spanish. Our trips to Costa Rica are more than just educational travel and Spanish summer camps; we are Spanish teachers, so we intentionally integrate the four components below into our Spanish immersion programs so that our students can actually say they have Spanish as a practical skill for their futures.

The 4 primary components of our Spanish immersion camp programs are:

  1. Host Family Lodging – Spanish Only: Host families keep you speaking Spanish 24/7 during your Spanish immersion program and help you learn cultural insights that you would never pick up if you stayed in a hotel.
  2. Community Service – In Spanish: Service learning projects are a great way for you to lend a hand to those in need and to MAKE you speak Spanish to meet real objectives. It is both a language and humanitarian activity, and a central piece to our Spanish immersion programs.
  3. Spanish Classes – Taught by Natives: Spanish classes help you sort out all the fast-paced language you hear day to day while on immersion. It’s difficult to make sense of everything as it comes; we integrate classes into your Spanish immersion program so that you can maximize all the day-to-day learning you’re doing.
  4. Adventure Travel – In Spanish: Costa Rica is possibly one of the most exciting (and safe) places to travel in Central America. Every Spanish immersion program or trip to Costa Rica should include some experiences at the beach, visiting volcanoes, and trekking through the rain forest.
