Spanish Lessons In Cuernavaca

Live the language and the culture by participating in an immersion program in Cuernavaca. Students that have participated in this program have realized it to be one of the best experiences they have ever had in a foreign country. Besides studying Spanish you will live with a host family where you can: learn about traditional values in the family, and participate with them in events like weddings, quince años, bautizos, and many other cultural activities where you can surely immerse yourself in Mexican culture. Some host families will take to places near Cuernavaca or even Mexico City to meet other members of the family. This a good opportunity for you to see what we mean by "extended family" in Mexico. It is a tradition for Mexican families to gather in a big ¨fiestas¨. Come to Cuernavaca and rediscover Mexico, its people, its culture, and its flavors.

Classes take place in beautiful gardens like Las Mañanitas garden, Ex-Hacienda de Corte garden, Las Quintas garden. Your teacher picks you up and drive you to the location where you will take your class. Class schedule is from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm.

From My Students

I traveled to Cuernavaca, Mexico twice to study Spanish in the past couple of years. It is one of the great centers of Spanish language study in the Americas. Both times I spent part of the time studying with Paulino Velasco. Ira Chaleff
My daughter and I went to Cuernavaca, Mexico in July 2006 for one month. After three years of online classes with Professor Lino I was delighted to finally meet him in person. Once in Cuernavaca, Professor Lino was an excellent tour guide, Spanish language teacher, advisor, and friend. Our Spanish language skills improved tremendously. Lisa and Corey Overcash

Tours

When you are not in class, take advantage of our tours of Cuernavaca and the surrounding areas. Some excursions include: The Pyramids of Xochicalco, “Las Estacas” (a natural paradise where you can swim, snorkle, ride horses, rent an innertube or blow up boat), Taxco (silver mining capital with silver, of course, and beautiful views), Teotihuacan (the pyramids as big as ones found in Egypt), Puebla (city of so many churches & more), Oaxaca (the most diverse state in Mexico, home of Guelaguetza). We will also arrange trips to see beautiful butterfly sanctuaries in August, to Day of the Dead Festivities in November, or to observe Holy Week in Taxco.

Housing

We recommend that students stay with local Mexican families, both to practice their Spanish & because this is more affordable than hotels and restaurants. There are many options to choose from to find a family that is right for you. Options include meals and pools!
