Learn Spanish while on vacation

How about learning another language while you unwind and get to know a new country and its customs?

Top that with a sprinkling of beautiful beaches, rainforests and breathtaking mountains. We are talking about Costa Rica, the Central American country renowned for the conservation of its natural resources.

The best way to learn a language is immersing yourself in the context in which it is spoken. Enjoying your vacation in the country while learning can be a much more beneficial way to study Spanish abroad. Plus, you can learn localisms and, why not, even jokes in Spanish.

Of course, the language should be well taught. A language school may be a viable option and, if you value different alternatives, it can also be quite affordable. Another alternative is to hire a tutor to teach you Spanish in a personalized manner. The ideal profile of such tutor is a philologist who speaks English. A couple of sessions a week could help you obtain the necessary knowledge to start developing you speaking and listening skills in Spanish.

To learn more and speak as the locals do, and if you want to have a “Tico” accent, you might consider staying with a host family. That way, you can learn more about family dynamics in Costa Rica, experiencing the closeness and affection that characterize Costa Ricans.

Another benefit of learning Spanish with a host family is that they can go to different places with you and tell you about the history of a place, sharing the average Tico’s view on things. If you are staying in San Jose, your host father or brother might give you a tour and show you the various museums, theaters, parks, cafés and bars in the capital city.

A secret that can help you learn Spanish well is being forced to speak. Stepping out of the comfort zone and staying with a Spanish-speaking family could enhance your skills in speaking and understanding Spanish.

Why not learn Spanish with the locals, while enjoying Costa Rica’s natural beauty? Go ahead and give a twist to a conventional holiday!
