TEFL Position in Costa Rica

Widely recognized as one of the top language schools in Costa Rica, Intercultura has a variety of programs for all ages and learners, with occasional opportunities for TEFL graduates. Our language school in Heredia was founded at the end of 1993. Now, the school has grown organically from a one story house into a two-story center comprising three buildings, gardens, a full staff, and hosting Spanish immersion programs for foreigners from around the world as well as low-cost English classes for the local community. Intercultura's English Department is now our Foreign Languages Department, with a large number of Tico students who have the chance to interact with our foreign students in our conversational exchanges "intercambios".

After running week-long beach programs in Dominical and Jacó, we decided in 2001 to look for our ideal setting; one that offered a beautiful, safe beach, a predominantly Tico community, and a place where we could make a positive impact with our community development-orientated project model. We have found it in beautiful Playa Sámara, where we quickly integrated into the community

Today we are proud to have founded the Sámara non-profit CREAR association for local kids, to participate in community development projects and serve actively in the social and communal activities that help shape the future of this beautiful area.

We have an immediate opportunity teaching English at our Heredia City Campus!
