‪I studied for four weeks at Instituto Estelar Blingue, and it exceeded my expectations in every way. My teachers, Nelly and Sofia were excellent. Bethany organized activities for us every day of the week. Cooking, dancing, and music classes were all included in the price as well as walking tours of the city and a trip to Liberia's biggest farmer's market. Bethany organized "Spanglish" classes twice a week which allowed me to learn Spanish and teach English with Ticos.

We went on wonderful excursions to volcanoes, rivers, waterfalls, a canyon, the rainforest and beaches every weekend.

My homestay family was warm and welcoming.

I would return to Estelar in a heartbeat. I am so grateful to have had the chance to spend a month there.‬

‪Estelar was everything I had hoped it would be. I visited in March 2020 for a Spanish Immersion course, including a homestay with a local family. Bethany runs a world-class operation, and all her staff are wonderful. I had the opportunity to take classes with profesoras Nelly and Mariela, both of whom are excellent teachers. The classes are fun, interactive and dynamic. Reading about Liberia online makes it sound like a busy place, but my experience was a quiet town with easy access to just about everything. My homestay family was wonderful and welcoming, as was everyone I met during my stay.

When my visit was cut short due to government-mandated Coronavirus closures, Estelar was able to easily transition the remainder of my course to an online format to help me finish my studies. I am extremely happy with the professionalism, customer service, expertise, and warm, welcoming experience I had with Estelar. As a professional teacher myself, I can recommend them without hesitation, and I look forward eagerly to my next trip to Costa Rica for another course. I'll be back!‬

‪A friend and I decided to spend one week at a Spanish immersion program. We found Instituto Estelar on Trip Advisor. From the very first contact, Bethany made us feel welcome and comfortable. The price was super affordable. We stayed with a host family for the week and learned so much. Our host family was very welcoming, made delicious food, and made sure we had privacy as well. We are older adults (over 60), one a Spanish beginner, and one at the intermediate level.
Monday to Friday mornings were spent at the school (everything was walking distance). Our materials for the week were themed. My class focused on home repairs including detailed descriptions of parts of the toilet and shopping at a hardware store. I was hoping for more general topics like traveling or eating at a restaurant. Still, there was plenty to learn and the small classes guaranteed lots of practice time. My profesora made learning fun with interactive games and role playing.
The week would have been even better if some of the scheduled activities had not been cancelled. Most afternoons we were on our own to figure out what to do. Once we decided, Axel was there to help with arrangements, but I have liked more organized trips with other students. I guess it is hard to predict who will be there and if they want to participate in such things. There wasn't much to do in Liberia except perhaps eat and shop. We struggled to adjust to the heat which made extended time outdoors difficult. We are from the north (Michigan). It was in the 90's every day with no A/C.
Those were just minor things really but if you are considering you might want to ask more questions ahead of time about the schedule. I would definitely recommend Instituto Estelar and would consider returning again myself another time. Thank you Bethany and Instituto Estelar family for a great learning experience.‬

‪This past December 2019 my colleague and I decided to attend a Spanish immersion program at the Instituto Estelar Bilingue in Liberia, Costa Rica to strengthen our understanding of the Spanish language. I reached out to the school and spoke with a representative who gave me a brief overview of the program then advised me to take the written exam online. After taking the exam I was then contacted by the owner Bethany Kirk, who was very sincere, enthusiastic, and comforting about my attending the institute. I was then set up with an oral skype exam and once my results were in I was given a class placement level. There were several homestay options one being my friend and I could reside with the same family which I found to be very accommodating. Bethany walked us through the whole process we were given several family options, with complete details about the family, along with pictures. We were also provided with information on the town of Liberia, extracurricular activities outside of the school, extracurricular activities provided by the school, and other fun ways to improve our Spanish while there.

Estelar is in a prime location in downtown Liberia there are plenty of restaurants, shops, markets, and the people are very friendly. Bethany and her staff are awesome and I never had a dull moment. The students were given a tour of the city on our first day to make sure we knew how to get around, they offered cooking classes with local cuisine, excursions (i.e. waterfalls, farmers market, national park), and much more. My absolute favorite activity was the opportunity to volunteer one day each week at a local school that Estelar partners with. Since we were there close to the Christmas holiday we were able to assist with the school Christmas party that Estelar hosts every year. Bethany and her team brought in Santa Claus who gave out presents to each student and a back pack; there were games, candy, hot dogs, chips, juice, cake, ice cream, and music with a live DJ. It was awesome!!!

The instructors at the school do a wonderful job of teaching you Spanish without making it the average monotonous classroom setting, by playing learning games, teaching local customs and culture, with a focus on conversation; which allows you the necessary practice you need in speaking the language. The learning experience also extends to your homestay where the family is requested to only speak to you in Spanish. The couple we stayed with was so amicable and welcoming. They really made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for a home away from home. We were included in family meals, functions, and conversations. Then after all your hard work and completion of the program the school provides mini graduation ceremony where you are awarded a certificate of achievement.

I highly recommend attending the Instituto Estelar Bilingue it is everything you hope for in an immersion program and everything it claims to be!!!!!!‬

‪I just returned from an amazing two weeks at Estelar! I so recommend the school, the teachers, the experience, everything about it.

From the start, Bethany was fantastic in helping me to prepare for the upcoming trip and answering my many questions. She's also very flexible in helping to design the experience around you and your needs.

Then, once there, it's such an amazing experience. I'm so glad I attended Estelar in Liberia and truly got to work on my Spanish (and have an authentic Costa Rican experience where I had to practice my Spanish throughout the day!). I was mentally exhausted at the end of each day, but in such a satisfied way, knowing I'd truly learned and pushed myself with the help of everyone at Estelar. Plus, it was a lot of fun with activities, excursions, and the opportunity to meet other students and teachers.

I just hope I get the chance to come back in the future!

Thank you so much for a wonderful two weeks!‬

‪I studied at Instituto Estelar Bilingue for two weeks in December 2019. The experience was great from my initial contact with Bethany Kirk. She is very upbeat, organized and professional. She answered all of my questions prior to my arrival and was available throughout my learning experience when I had questions.

The school was colorful, very clean and equipped with numerous bathrooms which was fabulous. I enjoyed the cooking class with Merilyn and volunteering at Club A with the Christmas party. The school staff was professional and friendly. I had two professors (Nelly and Deydi). They were both very knowledgeable and creative in their teaching styles. I love the fact that we were presented with certificates of completion at the end of each week after passing our final exams and moving to the next level of Spanish.

Last but not least, I cannot say enough about my homestay family (Marta & Pedro). This amazing retired couple's home is super clean, cozy and full of laughter and love!!!! Marta is a great cook and goes above and beyond to accommodate. Their extended family is so kind as well.‬

‪I found the Institute Estelar Bilingue Spanish school here on Trip Advisor and would highly recommend contacting them if you want to learn Spanish!

Living and working in Costa Rica for a few years, I needed to immerse myself in classes to focus and learn the language from professionally trained teachers (instead of trying to learn it on my own).

The immersion classes included class workbooks, games, interaction with other classmates, oral presentations and homework! I attended 2 weeks of classes (4 hours per day) and learned in an environment that was extremely helpful, informative and fun.

The opportunity to Volunteer with “Club A” was very also rewarding. I am learning Spanish and the children are learning English. The children are very receptive to the visit from the school staff and volunteers and were eager to participate in the games and activities organized for the week.

The Spanish school is located in Liberia and is close to the international airport and local beaches. The staff at Estelar was very helpful and happy to give recommendations, whether it be where to buy Spanish books for practice, where to go to shop or eat, where to go for tours and activities in the area, etc.

If you have considered learning Spanish, contact them! I have learned so much and have gained the confidence to start speaking Spanish more.‬

‪My school has end of year trips where we go to different places and do hands on learning. So, Some of us decided to go to Costa Rica and take a 20 hour Spanish class at Estelar and stay in a Homestay for about a week and a half. It was amazing Bethany who was the owner of Estelar was super great and helped us with everything. She rented buses for us and showed us all the cool places around Costa Rica.‬
