My 12 year old son and I had a wonderful experience at Amigos del Sol. Our Spanish improved greatly not only because of the wonderful Spanish language classes offered at Amigos del Sol but because of the wonderful family Rogelio placed us with. This was a wonderful experience.

I just finished a week at Amigos del Sol and had a great experience. This was my second trip there, my last one being two years ago. It was exactly what I wanted. Three hours a day of immersion into the language with a responsive teacher who engaged me in interesting conversation with splices of grammar and corrections. I can't... More

In January 2015 I again worked with Amigos del Sol. The director is outstanding and generous in being of help. I worked one-on-one with an excellent instructor. I so appreciate Amigos del Sol. Deborah Green

For my first trip to Oaxaca, I completely put my trust in Rogelio to set up my classes and family homestay for two weeks, and everything was perfect! Teachers were great, all classes were either one-on-one or one-on-two (despite it being the peak xmas season), and staying with a family within walking distance of the school was ideal. I'll certainly... More

What a wonderful way to be introduced to the beautiful city and exceptional people of Oaxaca. From initial email contact all the way to my arrival back home, I was treated with amazing care and attention. I made new lifelong friends and, more to the point, I went from 2nd grade to high school with my Spanish! The director, Rogelio,... More

In November, I returned for second week of classes at Amigos del Sol (I'd been there in February). I took one-on-one classes with Rogelio, the director, who is an excellent teacher as well as administrator. He is cheerful, flexible, and committed, and he attracts teachers who have the same attributes. As a result, the atmosphere of the school is lively... More

After just completing a two-week course, three hours a day, we can't say enough to capture how happy we were about the experience. Rogelio was a fabulous teacher, always encouraging us to stretch ourselves, and every other student we talked with felt the same about their instructors. We look forward to returning for future classes and encourage anyone considering studying... More

If you are thinking of attending a Spanish school in lovely Oaxaca City, look no further. This is an excellent school and I concur with all the positive comments others have already made about it (friendly, flexible, patient etc.) The school, although not in El Centro, is easy to get to by the good local bus services. I particularly appreciated:... More

I spent 4 afternoons studying with Rogelio and his amazing staff. I was interested in improving my Spanish and they provided the perfect venue. Very friendly, knowledgable, and flexible staff. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for beginner to advanced Spanish language instruction! Was well worth the time money!!

This was a fantastic immersion experience in a small school with lots of individualized attention. I've studied 3 times in Guatemala and once in Cuernavaca, and while all the schools were very good, this was the best. As the other reviewers have said, the director of Amigos de Sol, Rogelio, is very friendly, accommodating and professional. I had 2 classes... More
