Jacó Happenings

May 12, 2011

The Chinese government has chosen Falcon International as the first school in Costa Rica to participate in the Hunan Program, which consists in part of the selected institution hosting Chinese nationals to teach Chinese language, culture and customs to students. Falcon will soon be home to two new teachers from China, Fangfang Xie and Yuanyuan Shen, who are expected to arrive in mid-May. This important recognition complements Falcon’s Global Learning Center concept very well.

Recognized by the Costa Rican Education Ministry for kindergarten to grade 11, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in the U.S., and winner of the Ecological Blue Flag award with all three stars, Falcon is firmly established as the leading educational institution in the region. For more information regarding receiving Chinese classes or enrolling in the school, call 2637-7400, email bod@falconicr.com or visit www.falconicr.com.

Up on the Costanera Highway, Soda Marea Baja (2643-3530) is 200 m south of the Jacó high school. Out in Herradura, Soda Punto 4 (2637-7272) is at the main intersection, and Soda Kathia (2637-7137) is 150 m from the main entrance to Los Sueños Resort and Marina.
