Carferid Global Languages & Educational Consultants

Study Abroad Program

Acquiring a foreign language involves more than memorizing vocabulary words, and grammar rules, it is simply learning a skill.

You must understand the ideas and concepts and utilize them through speaking, listening, writing, and reading in other words you must practice.

We have organized language immersion programs in a number of countries that allows the individual to experience a cultural education while receiving language instructions in a native environment.   Studying a language in a country where it is spoken intensifies the learning process, making it easier, faster and more enjoyable and creates a wonderful experience in making friends from other parts of the world.

This program is available to students and adults of all skill levels and we offer language immersion programs with some of the finest international language schools. The programs allow students to immerse themselves in the language and culture while living with host families.  We can arrange programs from one week to one year in length of study beginning any time during the year.


CPI Heredia, founded in 1991, is located in San Joaquín de Flores. San Joaquín, a suburb of Heredia, is popular among those who wish to be away from the traffic, pollution and tension of the city, yet still want the advantage of easy access to Costa Rica's capital. Excellent bus service provides transportation from San Joaquín to both Heredia and San José. An additional advantage of San Joaquín is the opportunity to gain an increased insight into Costa Rican culture in a town that is typically "Tico".


CPI Monteverde was established as an extension of CPI in 1996. The Monteverde zone, which includes ten towns and 8,000 people, is situated on the Continental Divide at an elevation of 5,600 feet. The region is well known for its commitment to the sustainable development of the community and the conservation of the cloud forest reserves. This area is a rural region and is a 5-hour bus ride from San José. Buses travel daily to and from Monteverde at 6:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.


CPI Flamingo is your best beach option. It was established in 2000. The Guanacaste coastal area, replete with pristine beaches and scattered mangroves, is known as the golden coast of Costa Rica. With its white sand and crystal blue water, Flamingo is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, and just relaxing on the beach.
