The instructors here are very nice. I took my daughter here for some Intensive Spanish lessons for teens. We were disappointed in the lack of rigor. I think this would be an excellent school for beginning students who are in elementary school. I felt very safe leaving my daughter here and picking her up 4 hours later.

Everyone at the school was very nice but the teacher was disorganized. I met other students who had better experiences with other instructors so it might help to ask a lot of questions before signing up.

We sent our daughter to the children's summer program two years ago and are back again for round two. Such a lovely place with excellent programming and teachers. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I concur with the other reviewers! I had read the reviews and corresponded with the school to make our decision. I was looking for an engaging immersion experience for my daughters ages 13 and 11 and it was perfect. The school is down a quiet little street. The interior of the school is cheerful, colorful and typical of the buildings... More

My children are enrolled in this school (which seems to have combined with the also-excellent Centro Bilingue, run by Josefina's sister, Sara. My kids are so happy there, and have literally learned more in 4 days than in all of last year in Spanish class. The teachers are friendly, warm, and accommodating. The families are the same! A wonderful mix... More

I am embarrassed to be writing this review just now. Our family is on our third summer trip to San Miguel de Allende, and we have attended this school each and every time. It has made a profound impact on our children as they have been growing up. This very special Spanish School deserves the highest recommendation. The Centro Mexicano... More

Senora Josephina, who runs the school, is a jewel. The teachers are friendly, helpful, competent. They have a great program teaching English on Saturdays to disadvantaged kids in the area. The location is convenient. I can't imagine a nicer atmosphere to study Spanish while in San Miguel -- for adults/children/the whole family.

The other schools we checked have rigid schedules of 3 week classes. We had a choice of starting in the middle of the class- and paying full price- or waiting until the next class. Neither choice was appealing or worked on our time frame. So we signed up for a week of classes at Centro Mexicano. One hour a day,... More

Josephina's school is in a lovely setting a few blocks from the Instituto Allende, walking distance almost anywhere in town. Friendly staff, pretty setting, excellent curriculum.
