In early January 2015 I flew to Mexico for two months with my one and a half year old son. My plan was to spend a month with him there learning and improving my Spanish and then to meet up with my partner for another month of family travel in Mexico. I had the whole of Mexico and Peru to... More

My husband and I have been wintering in Sayulita for the past four winters. We decided that this year, we needed to get a better handle on Soanish and aske Jean to work with us an another couple. My husband was very skeptical and had his mind set that he would drop out after the first day. Well, he managed... More

Hola! I had the amazing opportunity to study Spanish with Juanita, I have to say one week was not enough, I did come out knowing much more than before however and was sent away with an entire Spanish study book that she hand makes! Juanita's enthusiasm and passion for the Mexican culture mixed with her knowledge of the language, with... More

Prior to meeting Juanita I had struggled to commit to learning Spanish. Attending her classes outside of her sweet palapa high on the hill (with gorgeous views of the bay) her love of Mexico, Spanish grammer and correct pronunciation was a multi-dimensional immersion in language and culture. Yes, she isn't Mexican, but my friend and I were lucky enough to... More

Juanita has a fantastic commitment to teaching Spanish. The material she has assembled is very well thought out. As I continued to progress I kept referring back to the material she gave me, some of my other teachers have commented on how well it is put together. She is very patient and detail oriented, a very good teacher.

Juanita has a passion for Spanish and speaks and teaches it authentically, accompanied by a deep love and experience of the language and culture of Mexico. Yelapa is a beautiful place to settle in, unwind and focus on improving communication skills with the friendly locals.

Juanita has great enthusiasm for the language of spanish and the people and place of Yelapa, and it's contagious. She made our stay in Yelapa memorable and did her best to help our family learn more and communicate with the people around us. We were a family group with a wide age range and ability level and she was wonderful... More

Spending time in Mexico is even better when you can speak to people! Five days with Juanita improved my Espanol greatly and the laid-back setting of Yelapa really made it a pleasure. No doubt in future I'll be coming back to further my education.

I was fortunate to be an 'only student' for a couple of weeks with Juanita, learning the beginnings of Spanish, wandering the old villages and hills around Yelapa and San Sebastian - a wonderful mix of culture, adventure and language. By the time I left, starting from zero, I was beginning to formulate sentences to converse with my hostess at... More
