Intercultura Heredia

Take a Spanish course at Intercultura, a friendly and welcoming school in Heredia. Intercultura has two campuses, and students are able to spread their studies across both of them thanks to the shared teaching methodology and learning materials.

The Heredia school was founded in 1993 with the intention of providing culturally and educationally engaging Spanish courses. Students benefit from being encouraged to speak only in Spanish whilst in class and on campus, to strive for an immersive learning experience.

The school in Heredia is housed in three lovely colonial buildings which have been remodeled to fit the comfortable classrooms. There is also a courtyard and garden where students can relax after their classes have finished.

Activities on offer are exciting and varied: from dancing to arts and crafts, cooking and tours of places of historical or natural importance. Many of these are included in the course price. The school is focused on providing a high quality of language education, with dedicated teachers, but is also active in engaging in local community projects, providing the school and students with an opportunity to give back to the Heredia community.
