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

Amigos del Sol is an outstanding language school and provides outstanding service. Taking some some Spanish classes in our short stay was incredibly helpful. My husband and I only knew the basics - like How are you, Thank you, etc. Our comprehension and confidence significantly improved in a short period. The classes are immersive and fun. Our teacher, Hector, was... More

I studied 5 days with Maria Elena and Estaban. They helped me improve my Spanish and I had fun doing it. I would recommend this school to any skill level student. Rogelio is flexible in setting up a program to suit anybody's needs.
