ASVO has agreement with ILERI Language school. Please find more information below.
ASVO and ILERI made a strategic alliance, in which the ASVO volunteers
learn Spanish, as well enjoy the Costa Rican culture. This opportunity
will further the quality of the experience in the national parks,
since most of the park rangers do not speak English.
ILERI Language Institute was founded in Escazú, Costa Rica in 1992. In
1994 we opened a branch in Altos del Chase, Panama City. The school is
run by two professional women with degrees in both International
Relations and Spanish as a Second Language. The owners and directors
are Ana Leonor Ramírez and Marianela Valverde (Panama director).
We are pleased to take this opportunity to introduce to you The
Language Institute ILERI.
Formal classes consist of 4 hours of Spanish instruction daily, 5 days
a week. From the beginning, students are taught exclusively in Spanish
through the Total Immersion Method.
Upon completion of the course each student presents a Final Project in
Spanish and receives a diploma.
Associated with the formal Spanish Language programs offered by our
Institutes are "homestays", during which students live with local
families. After classes, students have the opportunity to practice
Spanish daily with their families in and informal setting while
simultaneously experiencing the culture more thoroughly.
In addition, Costa Rica ILERI offers School-sponsored extracurricular
activities such as dance lessons, movies in Spanish, city tours to
Escazú and San José, and tours to the local museums and theaters.
Similarly, ILERI Panama City offers tours to the Panama Canal, movies
in Spanish, walking tours, and visits to places of interest such as
theaters, museums and National Forests.
