These are ideal choices if you’re looking to learn Spanish for professional purposes. At Academia de Español Nicoya, we offer a curriculum encompassing specialized courses: Medical Spanish, Business Spanish, Legal Spanish, Spanish for Spanish Teachers, Latin American Literature, and more!

Our Medical Spanish course includes relevant vocabulary and role playing, wherein interviews between a medical specialist and patient are practiced. In some cases, we arrange visits to a public local hospital or clinic.

Our Legal Spanish course, on the other hand, involves learning essential vocabulary. You will interact with a Costa Rican legal professional for hands-on practice, and may also attend a trial when scheduling permits.

Our Spanish for Spanish teachers involves practice in a classroom environment, where you learn strategies in presenting (sometimes) difficult language concepts.

Our Business Spanish course involves learning appropriate vocabulary, meeting local business leaders, experiencing local business culture, and learning to prepare an organizational chart with job titles. You will also gain an insight into business strategies for both mid-level and senior management.

Our Latin American Literature course involves reading at least one Costa Rican work, as well as studying that author’s writings and their importance in Costa Rican literary history.
