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

Place is substandard, administration is bad, poor bang for the buck. Seems that teachers try hard, owner is lost. Try Warren Hardy, a private tutor, or the local university. Disappointing.

I spent my spring break from acupuncture school at AHA, and loved it. The teachers are great, the staff organized my stay well, and the homestay was just perfect. I learned a lot and got to see a beautiful part of the country. I highly recommend it!!!

I first enrolled for a one-month program in 1998 and loved it so much, I returned after finishing college in 2002 and spent another 3 months studying and living with a host family. The variety of classes was fantastic - writing, history, cooking, psychology of the Mexican mind and many more - and I was told I sounded like a... More

The strength of this school is its teachers. They are all excellent and go out of their way to help students learn. This school is for motivated learners.

i took the plunge last year and now have spent 6 months off and on in San Miguel in homestays. I enjoyed my time at Academia,and there are many excellent, devoted teachers there. However, other students have said to me, and I firmly agree, that we all have learned even more outside of the classroom. The family of Candida and... More
