The CLS was founded in 1960 by Dr. Ivan Illich as the "Centro Intercultural de Documentación", better known as CIDOC. The School is one of Mexico's oldest and most respected language institutes. Our teaching methods facilitate rapid improvement in Spanish language skills regardless of the student’s current ability. Our approach is through total immersion.
The CLS is affiliated to the Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP) -Public Education Ministry-- under the corporation key 17PET0120X. This official registry certifies the quality of the Spanish courses offered in the CLS to foreign people.
The CLS belongs to AIPEC (Asociación de Institutos para la Enseñanza del Español en Cuernavaca), and to México Sí (Asociación Mexicana de Institutos de Español). These local and national associations establish quality standards in the teaching of Spanish to foreigners and all activities related to it.
Every member of the instructional staff at the CLS is a native Spanish speaker who has received rigorous training in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language from certified professionals. A number of staff members have been associated with the school since its inception. They have taught thousands of students.
The CLS offers a variety of activities to help bring students into direct contact with the culture surrounding them. Once a week, a short field trip in Cuernavaca takes place visiting interesting sites such as the traditional market, the ravines, the cathedral, the botanical garden and much more. For those students who would like to meet more Mexican people and practice their Spanish, a weekly "Intercambio" is scheduled during the afternoon. Also, dancing, painting, Mexican cooking classes, and movie afternoons are offered upon request at an extra fee.
On weekends, the school organizes independent field-trips to explore some of the cultural and historic points of interest around Cuernavaca. The student may visit the silver-mining town of Taxco, the outstanding museums and sophistications of Mexico City, the famous Pyramids of Teotihuacan and Xochicalco, the magic town of Tepoztlan, Las Estacas natural springs, and the beautiful beaches of Acapulco, as some examples.
Our intimate campus is located northeast of Cuernavaca's downtown in one of the finest neighborhoods, just 10 minutes away by taxi from the heart of the city.
We have ten comfortable classrooms, coffee area, garden, terrace, multimedia room, and free wi-fi connection.
