Why do we offer different types of programmes?

Language Incorporated thought first of all, about offering a world class value acknowledging the main goal that students have when they enroll in language sessions: Learning the Spanish language accurately and fluenly with enough vocabulary to communicate in different contexts and for different needs. As a result, academic consultants made a clear división of programmes including:

  1. Global Spanish which targets usually the general public with different populations ranging from youngsters to senior citizens. Our academic department through our curriculum designers and teachers emphasize our sessions and extracurricular activites on the learning part because speaking the language is the participants main objective. Trips and family stays are contextualized to privide practice for participants instead of merely giving the programme a touristic approach.

  2. Spanish for professions was created to provide individuales already set up in their professions with the goal to enrich their jargón in the field as well as interacting with equals in their professions through fieldwork and with locals in the areas they visit and places they stay.

    Both teachers and equals they interact with in their fieldwork are highly skilled and professional to take advantage of the time during the whole programme. The curriculum and itinerary are carefully planned to meet participants needs.

  3. The programme has been designed for students to enjoy the following differentiators:

    • The opportunity for professionals to learn with highly trained and experienced local instructors and live and share with local urban and rural people and or families who help them experience language not only linguistically in the environments they will interact.

    • It also allows cultural interaction in extracurricular activities in which students can learn the language fluently and accurately beyond the boundaries of classrooms in their countries of origin.



The Spanish for Universities programme has been created with the idea of tailoring sessions and field work with the following differentiators:

  1. The opportunity for participants to learn with highly trained and experienced local instructors, and to live and share with local urban and rural families, which helps students experience language not only linguistically in the classroom setting, but also outdoors.

  2. To allow cultural interaction in extracurricular activities in which students can learn the language fluently and accurately beyond the boundaries of classroom.

  3. Students will be able to design projects and have linguistic bases due to their interaction with specific populations of their academic and future professional and personal interests.

  4. Participants do field work with local experts, who are also guides in our fieldtrips. Their areas of expertise include: in various areas such as biology, volcanology, health and anthropology. This adds value to such outgoings, thus they become an integral part of course contents and purposes of all the participants of the programme, while students directly experience the subjects developed in class sessions.

  5. Our institution looks forward to working as a team with academic experts from your universities, therefore, participants in the programme are given credits for work students do in Costa Rica.
