Our native Spanish-speaking instructors are both experienced and engaging. Each possesses a university degree and is passionate about sharing his or her knowledge. At Nosara Spanish Institute, we use a communicative teaching approach and our primary objective is to better the student's communication skills and competency. We use a combination of textbooks and/or materials to meet the needs and interests of our students. All course materials will be provided by the instructors throughout the program. Students are required only to bring a notebook, pen or pencil and folder to organize class handouts.
We maintain an open and student-centered curriculum. Utilizing clearly defined goals; our instruction is adapted to the abilities, needs and interests of our students. Despite the diversity of methodologies currently available in the field of foreign language instruction, there is a strong consensus around the importance of developing a students’ communicative competencies. The NSI utilizes a modern and open approach to foreign language acquisition. From day one, advanced, intermediate or beginner students will benefit from total immersion into the Spanish language. In the classroom, our experienced instructors will develop a class and instruct students exclusively in Spanish.
