About Us

We are pioneers on English teaching in Costa Rica. We have 70 years of experience and we are leaders on our field.

Our mission is to continue being leaders on innovative language teaching strategies and on cross-cultural experiences.

Our vision is to enrich the quality of life, broaden horizons and to create opportunities through a constant cultural exchange between the peoples of Costa Rica and the United States of America.

We work under four exes of action: English, Resources, Culture and Social Projection.

We offer English programs for people of different ages.  Also, we offer additional resources so that, students can maximize their learning of the language. Additionally, we provide international certificates, professional advisory and translation services.

Since our foundation, 70 years ago, we have encouraged cross-cultural experiences between the peoples of Costa Rica and the USA, and so, we became the beacon of the United State Culture and traditions in this country through our spaces: Eugene O’Neill Theater and Sophia Wanamaker Art Galleries.

Thanks to our social projects, we have helped many Costa Ricans, specially the ones with economic difficulties, to achieve their #RealEnglish through our English programs, scholarships and their exposure to cross-cultural activities that have allowed them to grow as global citizens.
