Have A Question about our Spanish School
Have a question? Take a look! We have answers to most of the common questions:
The excursions vary in destination and are tied to the interest of the students attending classes. Saturday excursions may be scheduled, plus Sunday excursions during the busier times of the year.
Instituto www.chac-mool has two different options of classes for kids. The first, Programa Amiguito, is a whole language based program that is interactive, and created for the beginning student. The second program is the Prep program, created for kids and young teens that have more academic goals, such as students that have already had some dual immersion experience. Please ask us which program might be best for your youth or teen!
At the end of your course, the school will provide an official Certificate of Completion free of charge upon request. You must request this while at the school as they cannot be mailed to you.
Yes, you will have access to free WiFi at Instituto www.chac-mool. For those who want to travel light, there are many inexpensive internet cafes near the school.
Stores around town sell prepaid phone cards that can be used from the school or from most host family homes. Since not all prepaid phone cards are alike we do not recommend that you purchase these in your home country prior to arriving in Costa Rica.
You have the option to choose the plan that works best for you. You can do as little as just breakfast (desayuno), or you can do as many as all 3 meals per day with your host family. Please see Housing Rates for the costs of each of these options.
The host families will launder your sheets and towels, but for personal items you will need to use the laundry services in town for inexpensive washing and drying of your clothes.
www.chac-mool has a doctor on call and a hospital is located very near the school.
