Immersion Spanish offers a great opportunity to study Spanish, live with a host family in Costa Rica and volunteer in the community for three weeks. Once students arrive in Costa Rica, they will live in the city of Heredia. Heredia is an important cultural center for Costa Rica, and has managed to retain a typical Latin American "pueblo" feel despite increasing modernization. It is home to the National University and is only 20 minutes from the airport and the capital city of San José. Known as the "City of Flowers" for the colorful, tropical vegetation in the surrounding mountains, Heredia provides the convenience and manageability of a smaller city (pop. 75,000). As tourism is minimal in Heredia, students experience a truly authentic cultural and linguistic immersion during their stay. 
The students live with local families and participate in volunteer projects in local schools. Each week ends with excursions around the region which give the students the opportunity to experience natural attractions in Costa Rica while interacting with local residents.
