Attended the language school six weeks in 2014 and four weeks in 2015 and 2016. From Finland I could have traveled with a direct flight to Spain (5 hours) but instead chose to return Oaxaca (25 hours) because the school with it's staff is superb, the city is beautiful, and my host family (Patricia and Mario) felt like my Mexican...

I enjoyed every minute of the three weeks that I took classes at this school, and I plan to return soon. The teachers are excellent, highly skilled, encouraging, and friendly. I had one-on-one classes most of the time with mi maestra favorita, Isis, who not only quickly figured out where I needed to begin, but also gently pushed me along... More

My time at Amigos del Sol was short (I only had four days free to study) but very productive and encouraging. The director, Rogelio, is responsive and accommodating to students' schedules. Before I met Rogelio and my teacher, Isis, I had no idea that I could have a conversation in Spanish--much less about politics, religion, pop culture, etc.! They are... More

With great teachers who are incredibly personable and great at what they do, Amigos del Sol is a great place to spend a week, a month, or half a year learning Spanish. I came to Oaxaca knowing some basics in Spanish but really very little of structure and sentence composition (the things that make you feel like you understand a... More

Amigos del Sol offers an intimate instructional environment, in which the learner is constantly challenged to expand his or her abilities in Spanish. Teachers quickly discern students’ abilities, then work closely with students to improve their fluency. Students are able to select the number of hours they wish to learn, per day. I was there for two weeks, four hours... More

Basically, I had a month off of work, and I simply wanted to be immersed in Spanish during that time. Knowing nothing about Oaxaca, I booked a flight based on these Trip Advisor reviews and the prompt and courteous responses I received from Rogelio, the school's director. During that month, I likely learned more practical, useful Spanish than I did... More

I spent a lovely week studying Spanish for three hours a day. My teacher Miriam was wonderful and patient and really helped to solidify my Spanish. It's nicely located in a different part of town, and Rogelio (the director) picks you up and brings you back to the center of town every day, so you get to practice your Spanish... More

This is my second visit to Amigos del Sol! My first visit last November was for one week three hours a day. I was placed to stay with a wonderful supportive family. It was just enough immersion to get me going. Last month, in July, I returned for 9 days (3hrs each). Rogelio the director set me up for one... More

Amigos del Sol is an excellent language school, regardless of the amount of time you're spending in Oaxaca or your ability level. The teachers are certified with advanced degrees, they're very accommodating to schedules, and spot-on for ability placement. It's located on the road to San Felipe, but they pick up and drop off in Centro. If you're staying in... More

My two teen-age children and I all had wonderful experiences taking two weeks of Spanish classes at Amigos del Sol. Everything about the school reflects the friendly, competent, and vibrant personality of its director Rogelio. Our classes were very small--on some days i was alone with my teacher, though I was not paying for private lessons. Clearly Rogelio was more... More
