The “City of Eternal Springtime” has a great year round climate with a very mild rainy season. There are close to 700,000 residents, so it is not a small city, but the historic center feels that way. The nightlife is fun and energetic and the area around the city is filled with fantastic tour opportunities. This idyllic setting is only an hour's bus ride from Mexico City and the international airport, but is a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Our Spanish institute is located in this rich cultural and historical setting. We have been teaching Spanish here for almost three decades. Students can utilize the many different facilities and programs offered at the school such as the library, auditorium, cafeteria, telephone, fax, e-mail and postal services.
The city of Guanajuato is located in the central part of Mexico. This is a “World Heritage Site” and one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico. It is a small and quaint Colonial town with superb architecture, narrow winding cobblestone streets and quite possibly the most impressive central plaza in the entire country. Because this is a university town, the night life is fun and eclectic. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and discothèques, many of which stay open into the wee hours of the morning. Our campus is located on a quite street near the center of town. We have 10 classrooms, multimedia room and a beautiful patio with open terrace. Our teachers are all degreed Mexican natives that have been specially trained to teach Spanish as a second language.
The capital of the state of the same name, Oaxaca is a UNESCO certified Patrimony of Humanity city. This is the most diverse city in all of Mexico with more than 15 ethnic groups that make up the population. Each of theses cultures is present in the architecture and history of the region. The historic center and the Monte Alban archaeological center are just two of the many examples of these different cultural influences. Oaxaca is also famous for its food and festivals. Christmas, All Saints Day, Constitution Day, Workers Day, Easter and New Years are just some of the many fiestas that mark the Oaxacan calendar. The greatest celebration of the year is Guelaguetza, which takes place the first two Mondays following July 16th.
Playa del Carmen
This once small fishing village has become a very popular destination on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. It is a wonderful place to visit for those that are looking for white sandy beaches and crystal blue water. More relaxed and culturally significant than nearby Cancun, Playa del Carmen is easily reached by the international airport that services both destinations. A short ferry ride across the straits to the island of Cozumel and you are diving or snorkeling in one of the worlds most beautiful coral reefs. Our Spanish language institute is located in the center of town, just minutes by foot to the beach. We have air-conditioned classrooms, access to wireless internet and a private courtyard where students can relax during breaks.
