Classes are given from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a 20-minute break at 10 a.m. This program offers a lot of Spanish instruction while still allowing enough free time for other activities. In the event that we are unable to place you in a group class due to differing skill levels, we shall instead provide 3 hours 15 minutes of individual (1:1) tutoring.

    Group PLUS Program
    This is our most popular program. This is a combination of our Group Program plus 2 hours of private tutoring in the afternoon (1:15 - 3:15). In the afternoon classes special attention will be given to your particular needs and interests. No new grammar structures are presented, but if you wish, old ones are reviewed. The emphasis of the afternoon class lies on improving your proficiency and extending active vocabulary. These sessions nicely complement morning classes.

    One-to-one Instruction
    If you have very specialized language needs, you may prefer to concentrate on Spanish in one-to-one tutoring sessions. We offer private classes for 4 or 6 hours a day. This program is available for every level and follows the same scheduling as the Group-4 and Group-4 Plus programs. Additionally, we have been able to arrange student visits to local clinics, hospitals, schools, businesses, etc. in the past. The emphasis of this program lies on improving general language skills and, depending on your needs, building skills and vocabulary related specifically to your interests or profession. Included is a language competence report covering listening and reading comprehension, writing and speaking skills, and if applicable, professional speaking skills.

Date School Established : 1987

School(Business) Permit No. : 3-101-554159

Since 1987, when ILISA was founded in Costa Rica, our mission was clear: to help you reach your learning goals by creating the ideal conditions in which to learn. Since that time, we have worked hard to exceed your expectations both in and outside the classroom. In 2013 ILISA expanded operations in Panama City to give you a new option in Central America, but always following the same philosophy than Costa Rica.

We combine a highly motivated and well-trained staff, flexible and professional service with comfortable, well-equipped facilities and student-oriented approach to help you reach your goals. That’s why we are the only language school in Latin America to guarantee your satisfaction.

At ILISA we believe that students come here voluntarily to immerse themselves in the culture and study Spanish. That's why we don't have strict rules because we believe we don't really need them. However, we ask you to smoke outside of the building as ILISA has a non-smoking environment.
Payment Method : PayPal
Student shall deposit a full payment directly to the school’s bank account within 7 days of receiving booking approval from the school.
Non-refundable deposit of $200 needs to be paid in order to get enrolled. However, this amount can be held for one year in case of cancellation. The balance is payable upon the arrival or before.
