The Fun Abroad Program provides FwFL students (aged 5 years and up) along with their parents with an opportunity to travel to Costa Rica to be fully immersed in not only the Spanish language, but also the people, the culture, nature, and a different way of life. FwFL has partnered with The Costa Rica Language Academy (CRLA) to provide families with this week long adventure.
The Fun Abroad program includes Spanish language classes Monday -Thursday where children and parents will be grouped in small classes separately. Classes will be taught using FwFL topics that students have been studying as well as new topics, and will include field trips to local establishments to help reinforce the lessons.
While at CRLA, families will not only be immersed in the Spanish language, but they can also participate in family cooking classes and Latin dance classes. Additionally, families will have the opportunity to visit beaches, ecological parks, coffee farms and other cultural locations that provide an inside view into the many wonders of this country.
The FwFL packages are available from June-August. For those with travel flexibility who are interested in traveling other times of the year, please contact us at 443-616-7343.
