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!
It was a wonderful time here. Thanks for everything. This is a great school and I learned a lot, plus had some fun while doing it.
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.
