Our aim at center is to make your stay with us as successful and pleasant as possible. That means: High quality language classes, providing Mexican families where you feel comfortable and giving you any assistance you need regarding travel, leisure, and other personal needs. We rely on you, the students, to give us feedback, whether you are happy with your teachers, your family, or whatever else you need. You may change any arrangements until you feel that this is the language learning experience you want for yourself. So, please talk to us.
Here, at our company, we have been teaching Spanish to students from all over the world since 1993. We pride ourselves on our friendly and relaxed study atmosphere, and do our best to make your time with us as fun as it is profitable. All of our teachers are specially trained second language teachers, all Mexicans, but they all also speak fluent English, necessary sometimes to explain some concepts.
We offer one-on-one Spanish instruction and group instruction. Our Spanish classes are set up to accommodate individual learning styles, personal interests and preferences. All of our teachers are specially trained second language teachers, all Mexicans, but they all also speak fluent English, necessary sometimes to explain some concepts. Some of our students would like to learn ´survival Spanish´ for their travels, other would like to study the language in all its complexities, others need their Spanish as bilingual teachers, physicians or other professions. We don’t use one particular textbook for all students, but a variety of textbooks, exercises, books and other learning materials. All these materials are available to students to study outside of their class time and to make copies to study at home. We don't have a set policy for homework, students do as much as their wish, in agreement with their teachers.
We suggest to you, that if you want to study three hours of individual Spanish classes daily, you take two instructors: One and a half hours with one, one and a half hours with another one. The reasons for why we suggest this are: because we don’t use just one textbook for everyone, different instructors use different materials, and even if they do similar things with you, this gives you the repetition you need without being boring. If you would like to have just one instructor, you may do so too, but we have very good experiences with changing instructors. Depending on availability, you can either take your three hours of instruction together, or you can have one and half hours in the morning, then have a break, and then have another one and a half hour session later. As we usually work like this, our days are organized in one and a half-hour sessions. You may choose any two sessions during the day: We just ask you to define your schedule for one week.
In addition to your Spanish instruction you can sign up for the following classes:
- Mexican cooking
- Backstrap loom weaving
- Jewelry making with amber and silver
- Leather work
The instructors of these classes do not speak English, so a little Spanish is helpful.
All of our families are within walking distance from the center of town. In general we place just one student per family, so that you have maximum exposure to the language, but if you prefer to live with another student, you may do so, too. The reasons we suggest homestays are: You have contact with Mexicans, learn about daily life and practice your Spanish. You always have a private room (usually share a bathroom), and share all the meals with the family. We only offer homestay together with Spanish classes and for a minimum of one week. After that week, you may add days as needed. If you choose not to stay with a family, accomodation is easily available in hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts in San Cristobal.
