Students may complete up to three courses of college level Spanish as well as additional electives in various fields during one 12-week session in Costa Rica. Several of the electives offered are taught in Spanish (for advanced level Spanish speakers), and others are taught in English. Another great advantage of this program is that language courses are four weeks long. Students can complete an intensive Spanish language course in four weeks and then move on to a higher level Spanish class. Students are entitled to enroll in a total of four courses (combination of electives and four-week language courses). All classes are at the Universidad Veritas with American and other international students. Courses are taught by host university faculty at the Universidad Veritas. A placement exam is required to determine language level.
