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

My husband and I took 3 days of Spanish class in this lovely and highly professional language school just outside of Oaxaca. It's located in a pleasant building on the road to San Felipe del Agua about 10 minutes from the Zocalo. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Try it out.

We (two adults and two children) took five mornings of language classes in early 2014. They were extremely flexible with us and the wide range of abilities that we had among us. All the teachers were excellent, friendly, and patient, and we all improved our Spanish tremendously in the time we had. Our only regret was that we couldn't have... More

We took a 5 day course in 2012 and another 4 days in 2014 with Amigos del Sol. We studied with 4 of their instructors. All were extremely outgoing, helpful, and professional. Our language skills were dramatically improved both times. I would highly recommend Amigos del Sol to anyone wishing to improve not only language skills, but knowledge of Oaxaca... More

My five week experience with Amigos del Sol was excellent. Rogelio was extremely quick to respond to inquiries before I arrived and helped me arrange a wonderful home stay with a family during my time in Oaxaca. He is a very warm person and is completely approachable and flexible with scheduling. If you do a home stay, you will make... More

I attended Amigos del Sol for one week in early February, and found it lived up to its excellent reviews. The director, Rogelio, and the teachers were engaged and engaging, and seemed to accommodate the needs of each student. The rides to and from the school from Parque Llano added to the adventure of exploring the language and Oaxaca itself.... More
