What Students Say

What real people said about Colibrí Language School.


Julie Wilson

USA- August 2019

I was fortunate to come across Colibrí Language School during an internet search for Spanish Schools.  I had only beginner level Spanish. I took lessons with Karla for a few months and then I planned a month long trip to San Isidro de El General.  I stayed in Karla’s adorable and newer apartment, took Spanish and cooking lessons with her, and experienced local culture.  Karla and her husband Abner helped me navigate the city as well as to many of the wonderful places nearby.  Traveling as a single female, I was somewhat nervous, but Karla put me at ease.  Karla is a very patient teacher and so full of life and love.  Abner is also a very helpful person and excellent cook!

Not only did my Spanish improve greatly, but with Karla, I was able to visit a small rural school for two days, an indigenous school and a church.  All of which had almost no English speaking people, yet I felt very prepared by Karla.  I also visited a rustic pueblo in the mountains, Nauyaca Falls, Uvita and Dominical as they are fairly close.

I found San Isidro de El General to be very safe and welcoming.  Compared to “touristy” vacations, this was much more economical, even with intensive Spanish lessons. Colibrí Language School and San Isidro de El General are off the beaten path for most tourists – a hidden gem.  I learned enough Spanish to be comfortable taking busses, taxis and Uber and just wandering around the city.  In fact, after my month of immersion and instruction, I was able to converse with most people and I have made many friends in San Isidro that I still communicate with regularly.

I would highly recommend Karla’s Spanish Immersion for anyone wanting to greatly improve their Spanish and/or have a wonderful experience of true Costa Rican culture.

Mi nombre es Pame y soy de los Estados Unidos.  I have been taking online Spanish classes with Karla for over six months now.  Karla is a wonderful teacher.  She is always prepared, patient and very knowledgable.  She has great technology skills which aids in our online lessons.  I am growing in my comfortability to understand and speak Spanish.  Karla has taken the time to get to know me and better understand where I am in the language immersion process as well as what my needs are to better inform her instruction.  Not only I am learning a new language, I am also learning about the wonderful country, Costa Rica.  Best of all, I have made a new friend in Karla.  I highly recommend taking her class.  You will learn a lot and enjoy your time together!

I look forward to my weekly skype call with Colibrí Language School every week.  Talking and speaking with a native language speaker helps so much.  I also enjoy the cultural information included in the lesson each week.  The call is direct teaching to my needs and my pace of learning.  And it allows for questions and clarifications that I just can’t get anywhere else.

I recently moved to Costa Rica and wanted to learn Spanish. I found Karla and I’m so happy I did! She has taught me about Costa Rican culture and how to use Spanish in Costa Rica. I recommend her classes and services because you will be learning from a native of Costa Rica and a true educator.
