Travel in Costa Rica


“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.
To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world”.

Chinese proverb

Programs / Courses

Real Time Spanish Virtual Classes (one-on-one)

One of the most valuable aspects of the human experience is the ability to connect with others. Being able to communicate with someone in their language is definitely a key.  Those who speak other languages have the chance to communicate with a wider range of people. Learning another language is a gain for your personal objective and also professional purposes.

Traveling in Costa Rica

Taking Spanish real-time is helping me to learn to be an excellent Spanish speaker. Having a one on one learning experience gives me individual feedback that is tailored to my language and speaking proficiency. The class is engaging, fun and encouraging. This summer I’m investing my extra time into my goal of being a better Spanish speaker. I can already tell that my confidence in speaking and my Spanish skills are improving.

For language classes that are personalized and engaging, VEC is the best. VEC understands how people acquire and retain a second language through active engagement, speaking and listening---not with lectures, long vocabulary lists and endless grammar drills. Classes are interactive, and the time flies by. Before you know it, you’re speaking Spanish. I have been working with Ronny and his staff at VEC (and previously at ICLC) for 25+ years. Whenever I need to refresh my Spanish or bring it to the next level, VEC is the first place I turn to.

If you want to learn about teaching and learning, I cannot think of anyone better in the world than Mr. Ronny García in Costa Rica. No one has more first-hand theoretical and practical knowledge of these subjects than he. Ronny has taught internationally, as well in his home country, and has organized countless seminars and workshops on pedagogy for practicing professionals and students alike. He is a student's teacher. By that I mean that he knows what YOU need to succeed and how to teach you to do it! Make no mistake about it--he will be your best friend and most ardent advocate as he simultaneously presses, encourages, and challenges you to be the best academic professional you can be. Few professors are able to combine this personable approach with the professionalism and guidance that Ronny has mastered. His knowledge of linguistics and pedagogical research are also second-to-none, as is his awareness for the need of diversity and multi-cultural competencies in the classroom and beyond. Ronny was born to teach. But don't think you will be just listening to lectures--he will expect YOUR best preparation and participation as you explore course material TOGETHER. He will enable you to reinvent yourself if you are jaded in your current career or job or train you in the most up-to-date skills for the 21st century if you are just forging your career path. But never worry because Ronny's tenaciousness and never-say-die positive attitude will not stop until the job is done.

We are so thankful to have been introduced to VEC for Spanish classes for our daughter! She does two lessons each week. Her teacher is fabulous—very fun, patient, caring and encouraging. The lessons are well tailored to our daughter’s age level. We are thrilled with the progress we have seen. We highly recommend this program! E. Ruggles - Florida I chose VEC because I have tried foreign language apps but they were never what I was looking for. I was looking the whys, conversation and cultural idioms. I have found all of that and more with the teachers at VEC. Furthermore, all the classes are specific to you and your needs, so if you’re not fully grasping or comfortable with a concept, more time is allocated to further your development. I can’t recommend VEC and their program enough!!
