About Tamarindo Spanish School

Why We Are Better

Thousands of students from different backgrounds and countries have visited and continue visiting our classrooms, and are amazed how much they have learned with our unique Spanish immersion program.

Our Spanish Language Institute was founded in 1996 and offers Spanish classes in a pristine environment, offering an ideal setting for people interested in learning Spanish by following a full immersion program.

Our students can prepare for the certificate through WAYRA Spanish Institute. WAYRA is since 2008 an accredited Center by the Instituto Cervantes and is also a DELE examination center.

Tamarindo Spanish has developed its own classroom methodology. Our textbook is designed to accelerate the learning process. Grammar is presented in an organized and logical manner followed by examples. An array of practice exercises and short stories give the students and teachers many conversational opportunities. Additionally, we incorporate materials from various conversational text sources. This results in an eclectic system that enables the student to learn Spanish as quickly as possible, with special attention paid to individual learning styles and modalities.

I enjoyed classes immensely. The teachers are energetic, creative and are all great people. Tamarindo Spanish School is like a family that continues to grow week after week and I’m proud to be a part of it. This is truly a wonderful experience- learning to speak Spanish, surfing, meeting so many great people and making friendship. I couldn’t have asked more. Thank you very much for everything. I will definitively come back in the near future!

Thank you very much for everything. All teachers and staff in this school are very good and kind. I really enjoyed my life in Playa Tamarindo because of you all. I will not forget these days in Playa Tamarindo and at Tamarindo Spanish School.

My experience at Tamarindo Spanish School was definitely one of the best introductions I could have had into the Costa Rican and Latin culture. I took a four week course and received a great working knowledge of the language in all aspects. I believe that to fully learn a language one must also learn and understand the culture. I was totally immersed into the culture and a new window with new opportunities got open for me.
