A close knit community starts with families. Our host families are long time residents and have a great reputation in the community. They love the opportunity to host a student and share there kindness and traditions with visiting students
Your second home.
Tico families provide a comfortable home for you to enjoy the local experience. Besides lodging, familes provide meals, laundry and supervision. Familes are selected by our school staff and receive pre-program training on hosting a student.
Your going to return someday.
Gain confidence and build relaionships is a priority in our program. Language after-all is about people! Connect in the community, learn from your family on how to live like a local so you can return one day on your own.
You're no different - just slow down.
Moving to a new and different community may seem "scary". We make it easy by providing a family that is part of the school. Don't put pressure on yourself to know everything, just have fun, be yourself and relax.
