Centro de Idiomas Logos is a Language school located in downtown San José, Costa Rica’s capital city. San José is located in the Central Valley, so in whatever direction you look, you will see big beautiful blue and green mountains.

We’re located in a calm and nice area right in the heart of the city in front of a park, a boulevard and a big old Catholic church. Within easy reach of the school you will find banks, restaurants, malls, stores, supermarkets, public offices of various sorts, cinemas, parks, bus stops frequented by busses going everywhere in the country and whatever service you might appreciate to be able to have access to at short notice.

Logos exists since 2004 and we receive students from all over the world who come to learn Spanish and travel in Costa Rica.

Our goal is to not only teach the language in an effective way, but to make learning fun as well! Our classes are creative and dynamic - with varied activities and resources and very interactive.
Our language courses have a conversational focus although this isn´t at the expense of covering the grammar, which is taught in a very practical way.

At Logos, we offer individual classes (for people who want to learn at their own pace) and group courses for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced students. In order to be able to give you a maximum of individual attention, the size of classes is limited to 5 students, however, the average actually turns out to be 2 or 3 students per class in most instances. Our courses allow students to attend class for as long as they wish with a minimum duration of one week. Courses start every Monday.

ISome of our courses are:
Intensive Spanish
Regular Spanish
Conversational Spanish
Grammar and Structures
Spanish for Business
Theological Spanish (Catholic)
Theological Spanish (Protestant)
Spanish with the Bible
Highly Advanced Spanish
Spanish for Children
Spanish for Teenagers
Spanish for Seniors (+50)
Medical Spanish
Legal Spanish
Survival Spanish
Spanish for Hispanics.

I liked very much to spend time with you all and the course of Spanish for Business was excellent. I think Logos is a really good school and hope it will continue like that. Also we laughed a lot during the breaks but also talked about important and interesting topics. I hope to come back soon.

We have volunteer work positions in public schools, social daycare centres, soup kitchens for children, orphanages, elderly homes, churches, with social organizations, with environmental organizations, in national parks and protected areas, etc.

We work in cooperation with international volunteer organizations as well, that send their volunteers to Logos, where we arrange everything for them here in Costa Rica: Full board home stay, volunteer work placement, transportation, Spanish classes, etc.

Students from these universities have had Spanish courses, Business courses in English (with credits for their university), home stays, trips to many beautiful places in Costa Rica and social and cultural activities.

Logos has a department called Scandinavian Cultural Center in Costa Rica. It all started because one of the owners is from Sweden (the other one is from Costa RicaE married couple), also a big percentage of our students and volunteers come from Sweden and also because we know many Swedish and people from the Nordic European countries in Costa Rica. So, we offer courses of the Scandinavian languages (as well as Finnish) to Hispanics and people from different places; we often have cultural activities like Scandinavian movies, food, music, etc. Also we have exchange programs to Sweden and excursions to the Scandinavian countries one or two times per year.

Logos has agreements with many travel agencies and hotels, therefore you will qualify for discounts for your trips to any place you want to go in Costa Rica as well as for hotels. Part of our service without extra charge is to help you with the reservations, addresses, information and any assistance you might need. At Logos you can rely on 24 hours assistance 7 days a week.

What is more, Logos works in cooperation with OTEC; which is a big and well-renowned travel company with over 30 years working experience in several countries. Through this, we can get very low prices for your flight tickets and for trips to many places.
Also, though OTEC we offer loans for traveling at very convenient monthly payments, so, if your dream is traveling and learning, don’t let financial concerns come into the way, we’ll help you to let it come true!

Our goal at Logos is to make sure that our students and volunteers will not only learn the language and offer their help, but also have a wonderful time. We’re happy to have the possibility to assist people from all over the world to acquire a level of mastering the language chosen that will help them in their lives that will help them to travel easier by being able to communicate, to find new friends and relationships, to get more work opportunities. At the same time we commit ourselves to our students and volunteers, making sure that they will fully enjoy their stay and gain a memorable experience for life!

So, whatever country you come from, whatever language you speak, no matter what age you are or what occupation you have, whether you have no, little or more advances levels of knowing Spanish or whatever other language among the ones listed above you might want to learn...
We invite you to come to Logos in Costa Rica to have a wonderful and memorable time that you will remember for the rest of your life!  We’re looking forward to meet you here and help you in any way possible!
