WAYRA is centrally located in Playa Tamarindo and just 150 meters from the beach. The school is situated in a beautiful tropical garden. On the premises, the students can find three buildings and two small ranchos (open air dry palm huts). All the classrooms are distributed among the buildings. The classrooms are spacious and comfortable, with large open windows to create a comfortable and appropriate atmosphere to study. The main rancho houses two classrooms on the second floor and the cafeteria with a snack bar on the ground floor. In the cafeteria, students relax and enjoy conversations with other students while having some snacks and refreshments. It is also a good place to do homework during school hours or to take part in one of the dance lessons that are practiced after school on the main floor. We will maximize the students learning experience with a thoughtful balance of personal, cultural and academic challenges within a secure and supportive environment. The instructors are skilled in blending conversation with grammar to meet the individual needs of the group members. In the classroom, we make learning an enjoyable natural process. Teachers encourage debate, conversation, and exchange of ideas to promote critical thinking and verbal skills. Games, videos and music are frequently used in the classrooms. Outdoor activities, such as walks in the nature reserves, visits to the different business in town to gather information, conversations with people from the community, interviews or excursions to neighboring towns, are used to practice and learn more about the ecology, economy, and culture of Costa Rica. Your language ability will grow as your outlook broadens. Every day the students are required to do about one hour of homework.
