Overview

The Spanish Immersion School is committed to teaching you Spanish — and to sharing with you the wonderful diversity of Oaxaca. We do this by holding classes in important cultural settings around the city as well as in our beautiful space, and by hosting students on amazing excursions to points of interest all around the valley. There are a couple of important differences between Spanish Immersion School and most other language centers in Oaxaca. The first is the patience and energy of our experienced teachers. We believe that regardless of how great our curriculum is, without the best teachers, our program would not be as successful in encouraging confidence and proficiency in Spanish language learners. Second, the combination of this excellent instruction with the quality of our specialized curriculum creates a unique and superior program. With these two factors, our program gets students feeling comfortable speaking from the very first class.

Instead of taking Spanish group classes in Canada, I decided to spend 4 hours/day for one week taking one-on-one lessons with the Spanish Immersion School. This approach worked very well. I have found that intensive immersion training is far more effective than once-a-week courses where...More

The name is "Spanish Immersion School." Despite the English name, everything else is Spanish. However, you can email them in English and get a response in English.
