Our language school in Oaxaca, Mexico
Your language study trip to a host family in Oaxaca offers you on the one hand the opportunity to learn the language, but on the other hand also to get to know the country and its people in a genuine way. The Mexicans are very hospitable and appreciate it very much if you try to communicate with them in Spanish. It is easier to start a conversation and you will be invited to spend the next holiday with the family of your new friend. Accompanying this, you will attend your language course in a small but renowned language school. Here, too, the teaching of Latin American culture is present. After your Spanish course, you will be able to join different activities of the language school, such as a cumbia or cooking night, together with the participants and teachers.
If you are looking for the “real Mexico”, then Oaxaca is the right place for your language study trip. The coolest city in Mexico in our eyes has a lot to offer. The city with its colorful houses and the cobblestone streets exude a mysterious and intoxicating flair.
In addition, Oaxaca is a mecca for foodies. The abundance of restaurants serving local delicacies, such as mole, which is famous for the region, and the markets, where you can also sample grasshoppers, are worth a visit in themselves. Otherwise, you’ll find impressive craftsmanship, regional chocolate and superior coffee, among other things, at the markets. You will not get bored during your Spanish course in Oaxaca.
Late at night you can linger with the locals in the beautifully lit squares and then end the evening in one of the countless bars.
During your Spanish course you will live with a host family that will immerse you completely in Mexico, not only linguistically but also culturally.
The school believes that students should not only benefit from theory, but also learn from living with a local family.
Connecting with a family and making new friends will make Oaxaca your new home even faster during your language study trip. In the mornings you can have breakfast with your host family and experience what mornings are like in a Mexican family.
Due to the small size of the language school, all your wishes can be individually catered for. Here you can choose between four different levels and intensity. The focus is on conversations with grammar units. In addition, there are writing and comprehension exercises.
Included in the program are 15 hours of one-to-one Spanish lessons per week starting at 9am. This gives you time to have breakfast with your host family in the morning and explore the area of Oaxaca in the afternoon with new friends from the town or the language school.
The perfect mixture of practice and theory for a language trip where you will not get bored so quickly, as we find. Here you will not only learn the language, but also the culture.
Oaxaca is the cultural and historical center of Mexico. Here you will find imposing buildings and exotic markets with food and handicrafts. The variety of restaurants and bars is limitless.
In addition, the long Pacific coast invites you to surf. In general, the city attracts athletes from all over the world, because here people surf, practice yoga and dance a lot (salsa). In addition, there are many breathtaking galleries and museums to admire.
In the afternoon, after your Spanish course, you can stroll along the cobblestone streets, visit the church or just relax. You can end the evening with your new friends in one of the cozy bars. There you should try Mezcal, a specialty in the area.
At the language school, you will not only learn Spanish in class, but the school will also make sure that you get in touch with the language and culture as much as possible outside of the language course. The teachers themselves are so enthusiastic about their beautiful language that their lessons offer more than just learning a language. The school regularly organizes pottery classes to learn about the arts and crafts of the region, city tours, excursions beyond Oaxaca, cooking classes for traditional Mexican food such as corn tortillas, or dance classes in salsa, cumbia and meringue.
Here, language students from all over the world come together to experience the culture of their temporary adopted country for their language study trip together with the local teachers.
