About

The NRCSA Center in Santa Ana was founded in 1974, and is dedicated to the teaching of Spanish and English as foreign languages. Over the years, they have always adhered to these three rules:

* Keep the instruction practical
* Keep the groups small
* Make sure the instructors are educated, native speakers

The local director and primary program administrator are U.S. nationals, and have extensive backgrounds in the instruction of Spanish to non-speakers. Both individuals have lived in Costa Rica for over 15 years, and have significant experience in operating a successful language school. There is commitment to quality language training that is shared by a staff of experienced Costa Rican instructors. They are well acquainted with the language learning habits of foreigners. Together with the school administration, they will do their best to provide you with a rewarding language learning experience.

Housing is an important aspect of a well balanced international study program. A homestay provides a very unique way to acquire more insight into the local culture as well as providing you an audience to practice your Spanish. You will placed with a Costa Rican family (one student or married couple per family) in the town of Santa Ana. The hosts will provide the participant with a private room, breakfast, dinner and laundry service. Lunch will be served to on the school's campus during weekdays.

Two alternatives to lodging in a homestay are available in Santa Ana. The first is "La Casona", an attractive lodge with six bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. It also boasts a large dining room, two lounges, a reading/study area and kitchen. The second is "La Casita", a smaller lodge made up of two family suites, each with its own bathroom. There is also a shared kitchen and lounge. Both lodges have balconies with spectacular views overlooking the Santa Ana Valley.
