The structure was really good, in two weeks we learned most of the grammar and improved our vocabulary. Now, we can have (basic) conversations with locals which feels great. My teacher Emma was the greatest, every day she kept my attention for 4 hours! Thank you.

I have attended Spanish schools in Mexico and Guatemala, and Mayra's is similar to those. At Mayra's, classes are one on one, which is intense. The quality of instruction depends on your teacher, and I had a good one. My Spanish is advanced, so the class format was informal. My friends were beginners, so their programs were formal. Overall I... More

I didn't stay in the apartments so can't comment on them, but I spent a week in Banos taking Spanish lessons here and would like to describe my experience. The school itself is the top floor a small apartment building and has quite an informal, improvised feel with furniture and decor that is already several years past needing a makeover.... More

Firstly, this more of a tutor-type affair than a school. You have to work around the lives of the teachers rather than the other way around. Nothing wrong with that, especially somewhere the size of Banos just don't expect a organised language school. We were taught by Mayra but didn't stay in the apartments. From what I briefly saw, people... More

I spent four weeks studying with Mayra and staying half the time in her lovely studio apartment, literally six steps from my classroom and the other in the wonderful Reyes family home. An amazing experience and well worth the time and effort. My understanding of Spanish grammar is much clearer and although it is an ongoing process my command of... More

Mayra has a wonderful Spanish School. At this school you will find experienced, native speakers with university degrees that know how to work with people at individual levels, taking into consideration your learning skills and your knowledge of the language. It is a fun learning experience. I have even seen children there learning with their parents but in a different... More

My boyfriend and I rented an apartment from Mayra for a week as well as I took Spanish classes at her school. The apartment was great. We felt super at home. Both the class and apartment where an incredible price! My teacher was so so kind and it was great having a space to speak Spanish where I was comfortable.... More

Mayra's school was an excellent experience. I spent two weeks studying Spanish (starting from knowing no Spanish at all) and was thrilled with how much Spanish I learned in this amount of time. My teacher, Daniela, was amazing, and very flexible. Mayra also arranged for me to stay with a local family, which totally made my experience. I would totally... More

I spent just 4 days at Mayra's school. I really enjoyed it and liked how Mayra was willing to tailor the class to my needs (i mainly wanted conversation practice). The school was very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Mayra even bought a birthday cake for one of her students on my last day! Overall it was a fun and... More
