Who We are ?

The North American Institute was founded to serve the needs of the Costa Rican community in the area of language learning. Costa Rica sits at the crossroads of the world and those with the best communication skills and multiple language fluency will be best able to take advantage of the opportunities Costa Rica’s bright future will present.

For that reason it is our goal to bring the most modern methodologies, technologies and certified instructors to our students so that they can achieve actual results and substantial improvement in their language learning.
