Great school, great teachers, great city. The teachers did a great job of introducing new information at a rate that kept us challenged, but not overwhelmed. Plus, they connected me to a wonderful host family in town, so I could practice Spanish all day. It's located in an absolutely beautiful city, with great attractions nearby if you want to explore...

This is my 7th time studying at the Academia and I've always found the teachers and classes excellent and my fellow students interesting. The Academia provides a solid grammar base and plenty of opportunities for conversation as well as many other options such as literature and cooking classes. I also want to mention that the school is set in a... More

I have just finished week 10 and it is a great school in which to learn Spanish. When you get there the first time they give you a short test and place you in the appropriate grade (from 1 (absolute beginner) to 6) with each grade being 4 to 5.5 hours tuition 5 days a week for four weeks (about...

If you want to learn spanish, this is the place to do it. The experience was both challenging and fun. Jorge is the point of contact at... More

AHA is an excellent school with professional and friendly instructors. I studied there for a month in May in the full-day intensive programme. I learned a lot about both the language and Mexican culture and history (from the afternoon sociology and history classes). As May is in the low season, I had class alone for 2 hours a day and...

A lot of people come to Mexico to study Spanish- this is one of a couple of schools in SMA - this one seems to be the best mix of value and programs compared to Warren Hardy and a couple of the smaller programs.

During the month I took classes I was pleased with my advancement. Some reviews were disappointed by the fact that almost no English was used but that is exactly what made me learn more quickly. I had to think about the context of things and the interaction of the fellow students was in valuable. All of us tried to speak... More

My wife and I moved From PV to study Spanish in San MIguel and stayed. We found a great apartment walking distance for $400 a month on a bus route all utilities. The bus was 10 pesos each round trip. (72 cents US.) Great school, staff and weather. Cap'n Paul & Marvelle

Very disappointing experience. I had asked around for recommendations on an immersion program in SMA and received enough "OK" recommendations from people plus generally positive ranks on Trip Advisor. My first impression was the place was dark and dank...but pushed on and paid, I said to myself, it's an old building in Mexico. My next impression was first class day.... More
