The goal to increase the chance to find a job for unemployed people in Costa Rica is one step closer to reaching their goal by opening 635 scholarships to learn English, as part of the "Mas Capaz Plan" (improving skills in the English language). A program sponsored by the National Learning Institute.

According to the institute, many companies are offering employment in Guanacaste Province, where there are up to 1,552 open vacancies in Customer Service and Technical Support. The high number of vacancies influenced the institute to award the scholarships to people who live in that province.

The institute has agreed with language academies in that canton to carry out the English language courses.

People interested in learning the popular language should call the institute's line 2210-6000 and request the form to apply for the scholarship.

The program is a response to a new law release earlier this year, in January, to improve the institute.
