Spanish School in Cuernavaca, México.
Cuernavaca is well know for it´s “Neutral Spanish” and in fact many Movie Dubbing studios are located in Cuernavaca. It is also a very beautiful city with one of the best climates in the world which gave it the name of “The City of Eternal Spring”.
It has many archeological sites and museums, it is located about 1.5 hours from Mexico City making it the best place to get to know Mexico.
We believe in “language acquisition” versus “language learning” and we have experienced for many years that this is the best approach to learn Spanish.
Our school is the Best Choice for You
Our Spanish Teachers
All our Spanish Teachers receive instruction related to our unique methodology and our techniques. They are well trained in Krashen’s theory, as well as the Seven Intelligences and the Natural Approach. When we train new teachers, they must pass several levels of proficiency. At each level, only the top prospects continue, until we are left with the best of the best at the end of the training process, ensuring top-notch Spanish teachers! Currently, we have ongoing weekly workshops for our staff so we all stay up-to-date with techniques and methodolgy.
Learning Spanish with Creativity
We have created small outdoor classrooms, and adopted a friendly, relaxed atmosphere so students have optimal conditions for being successful in their acquisition of the language. We use a hands on approach with children, adults and teens, making the learning experience auditory, visual and kinesthetic.
Classes have a maximum of 5 people and we use a variety of media to assist in comprehension of the Spanish language. We also offer extracurricular activities in the afternoons as an extension of the classroom. These sometimes include cooking class, salsa dancing, yoga class, or even a movie in Spanish! Often we have a coto-cafe, which is just an informal gathering where students and teachers have a chance to chat in Spanish about anything at all, maybe at a local restaurant or cafe. We also offer weekend excursions, where students learn about the history and lore of local archeological zones. This way, they don’t just visit as a tourist, but take a piece of local culture home with them.
