I spent two weeks in Oaxaca with four high school students. They attended classes daily and had a blast! Rogelio and the teachers were extremely friendly, gracious and helpful in every aspect of planning our trip. My students had an experience of a lifetime in Oaxaca and the home stay and classes made all the difference.

I learned a huge amount in my one month at Amigos del Sol. The school is very friendly and accommodating, and because it's not too large, it feels very personal and also gives a much better opportunity for immersion. Since there were few students at my level, I had private lessons (for the price of a group lesson) for most... More

My wife and I took two weeks of classes, 4 hours daily. The teachers were very good, knowledgeable and engaging. Most of the class time was 1 on 1.The director was very helpful through the entire process, from our initial contact. He responded very quickly to all emails and was very accommodating to changes and requests we had. The school... More

Both my husband and I signed up for private lessons ($20 per hour). This was the first time ever I was able to study Spanish at my level: many years of classes in high school and college, but still had limited ability to communicate... I did not belong in either a beginner's nor intermediate class, so my private sessions with... More

Although we only had time to study for two days, those brief hours of conversation with Hector, an excellent and interesting teacher, were well worth our time. And Rogelio, the director, was exceedingly accomodating. Location was perfect, too, only a short walk from where we were staying in San Felipe. Gracias Hector y Rogelio!

I studied at Amigos del Sol for 2-1/2 weeks in January. I had studied Spanish before and wanted to keep my schedule flexible, so I signed up for a private teacher. That was a good decision. My teacher, Celso, was excellent, and I enjoyed deciding the topic focus. The only "drawback": private lessons take a lot more preparation! Rogelio's prompt... More

Amigos Del Sol is a great, down to earth, and small institution which provides an amazing educational experience. I am a recent University graduate and I just spent 5 weeks in Oaxaca City. I heard of many other schools, but after talking to students of some these schools I believe that it if you are serious about learning Spanish it... More

I studied at the school for 5 days in Oaxaca. Rogelio couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating in catering the 5 days to my specific needs. I studied with 3 different teachers (including Rogelio) and all were excellent. The transport to and from the school is very straight forward. I would highly recommend the school.

My wife and I took 5 day Spanish class at the end of January; We really loved the school and out tutor Celsius. We just started our trip to Latin America and obviously wanted to get bit of Spanish sorted. It's been more then a month since and I can say how helpful our classes proved to be.

I had an all-around terrific experience with the Instituto Amigos del Sol. Before my trip, communicating with director Rogelio by email was easy and helpful: he answered often, asked for clarifying details, and made useful suggestions based on my interests. I am an advanced student and was delighted to discover that I still benefited enormously from five days of tailored... More
