Cuernavaca is famously known for its constant spring-like temperatures, and because of the climate, the houses have no central heating or air conditioning. It is simply not necessary. Can you say "paradise"?

Name: Resha J.
Length of Stay: 6-weeks

When I first walked on campus, the staff made me feel welcome and let me know that they were there to promote the learning of Spanish and to offer support any way they could.

The environment is friendly and open and the staff always encourages you to speak in Spanish both inside the classroom and during break. There are classes for every level of Spanish, whether you are a beginner beginner, conversational, or advanced. They even have Spanish Literature classes in Spanish for those who feel they are more fluent.

The staff is very concerned about placing you in the correct class and will put you in a class that will better suit you for the areas in which you need improvement. One week you may work on past tense and the next week on indirect/direct objects, so they are very flexible. The small class sizes allow for the teachers to give more personal attention to each student.

Weekly excursions and cultural activities also help to get a better feel for Mexican Culture. I had a great time improving my Spanish. I am sure you will too!

After 6-weeks of study, I found them to be professional, organized, and efficient, while at the same time down to earth, flexible, and fun. The efforts and services they provided were beyond what I expect from a language school. When there were concerns or questions, they were right on top of it, and with a smile. I plan to return, not only for professional reasons but to see my friends again, hopefully soon.
