    Spanish immersion
    Recently returned from a 7 day immersion experience at Anders language school in Cuernavaca. I truly can't say enough good things about the program. The home is lovely and spacious. My bedroom was so comfortable and enough space to spread out easily. The outdoor area from eating area to patio and pool are kept up meticulously. The food was lovingly prepared daily by 2 wonderful cooks and was such a treat. there was always food and drink available throughout the day which was great. I went with some basic Spanish, though would get "embarrassed" when I had to speak. After 7 days at Anders I definitely improved in my ability to understand and my confidence greatly increased all thanks to my amazing tutors, Javier, Esther and Ulises. There patience and acceptance of my skill level was exceptional. I added on the cultural experience and enjoyed the trips and sights (though always practicing our Spanish😊) I'd definitely recommend this program and would love to return for further study
    Thank you for sharing your experiences. It was great to have you with us.

    Improve Your Spanish!
    We did the 5 day/6 night immersion program. The house is well set up to accommodate students in a comfortable setting. We liked that each student (or pair) has dedicated teachers. The teachers are excellent and very kind and patient. Daily breakfast and lunches include all the teachers and students together, this provides a nice opportunity to practice Spanish and listen and learn while enjoying delicious food. Excursions are also a lot of fun. I highly recommend Anders if you want to improve your Spanish through an immersive experience. I wish I’d planned for a longer stay.
    Thank you for recommending us. We hope to see you again soon.

    Spanish school at its best
    For anyone who would like to learn, grow or master spanish this is this the place to go! The staff at Anders are all amazing and very knowledgeable with not only the language but the Mexican culture and history. I highly recommend the cultural experience. The ladies who prepared our meals are just as great as the food. Nice quiet location, safe and secure in a gated area. I requested to have the driver pick me up and return me to Mexico City airport. Ricardo in my opinion played just as an important role as he speaks some English but our conversations helped each other as we went back and forth between English and Spanish. The only downside, I was only there for 5 days and did not feel like I had enough class time. Each teacher had unique teaching abilities which I also appreciated and the days programs all were quite organized and ran with precise timing. I never felt judged for my lack of Spanish and made me realize there is so much more I want to learn. Way to go Anders!!!
    Indeed, the driver’s name is Ricardo (Richard for friends) and he is as important as all our other staff. The more because he is the first person will meet upon arrival. I’ll share with Ricardo your comments. I happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome anytime.

    Wonderful week of Spanish immersion!
    This was a life changing week. My Spanish advanced hugely, largely as a result of the one-on-one teaching format, which is so much better than class learning. The teachers are incredibly experienced and kind, and adapt to exactly where you are in your learning. But it's so much more than about language, it's also a deep immersion into Mexican culture and society, and how people live. The rooms are comfortable, the food is great, and being in the house is like being in someone's home, except with privacy and no social pressure. It's just a really enjoyable environment to spend a week. The location is peaceful and safe, although it's a 15 min Uber ride into the city and there's not much around the house, as it's in a residential area. So it's not easy to just stroll out and get a change of environment. But honestly it's a small price to pay for such a great experience. Gracias a todos a Anders Cuernavaca!
    Muchas gracias for your feedback. It was great having you with us. I'll tell Norma you enjoyed the food :-)

    Outstanding Spanish Emersion in Cuernavaca
    If you are looking for an outstanding Spanish Emersion experience, I highly recommend this special school in Cuernavaca, Mexico. This past November was the second time I've attended this school and the second time was as wonderful as the first. The first time I was alone, the second time I took my sister. Each time I was impressed by the quality and touched by the kindness and generous spirits of the school staff and all the teachers. The focus is on adults who are looking for a high quality, individualized program. The classes are one-on-one and designed specifically around each students needs. The emersion experience is complete with everyone only speaking Spanish. The number of students at the school at one time is limited, allowing for an intimate, focused experience. This was important to me, because I wanted to have a teacher help me work on my specific challenges with learning Spanish. As an adult learner, I have found that I do better with this model than the group classroom model. The teachers are all professional, generous with their expertise, and kind. The classes and comfortable student living arrangements are in a beautiful home. The food is delicious and the excursions that are available provide the opportunity to live the experience of listening and speaking Spanish within the local culture. Because Spanish is spoken all day and during meals, there isn't the same need to live with a host family in order to achieve the emersion experience. Instead, living on campus provides convenience and comfort, avoiding the need to travel back and forth to a hotel or other living arrangement. This was particularly important for me because it allowed me to focus my time on speaking and hearing Spanish rather than commuting. If you are an adult, looking for an adult focused, intimate and professional Spanish emersion experience, I urge you to contact this school and learn more about their program. You won't regret it. Claudia

    Anders was an amazing immersion experience.
    Anders offered an exceptional experience for language immersion. The residence was comfortable and clean, the food was good and accommodated several diet restrictions, the teachers provided diverse teaching styles that met a variety of learning styles, and the classes were a mix of community experiences and 1:1 instruction. I arrived speaking minimal Spanish and left two weeks later confident with basic conversational Spanish. My only regret is not staying longer.
    ¡Gracias! You are always welcome for a second stay :-) Nos vemos pronto.

    Superlative Immersion Experience
    My two week immersion course at Anders Cuernavaca could not have been better! The experience was fantastic on all levels. The room I had was a great value and the house is lovely. The four teachers who worked with me were excellent: Ulises, Jerson, Esther and Rosaura were focused and also very entertaining! Raul is a talented manager. Norma, the chef, prepared scrumptious meals. The excursions were well planned and delightful. I have already recommended this experience to multiple family members and friends and I hope to return.
    Muchas, muchas gracias. Thank you for the review. Happy to hear you enjoyed your Spanish immersion. You are welcome anytime.

    Best In Class
    Before attending Anders Languages in Cuernavaca, Mexico I had attended Spanish immersion programs in two different cities in Mexico and one in Costa Rica. All three were very good (I was a repeat customer at each). But one had the best teachers, another had the best course materials, and the third had the best accommodations. Anders was "best in class" in all three categories. If you are looking for one-on-one instruction for adults in comfortable and secure surroundings, provided by experienced teachers who use time-tested course materials, Anders Languages is the place for you. I give it five stars!
    Thank you. All this wouldn't be possible without wonderful clients and staff!

    Wonderful learning experience and teachers
    I’ve just spent 2 weeks in Ander’s Language School, Cuernavaca, Mexico. This was a wonderful way to enjoy Mexico and learn or expand one’s abilities with the Spanish language. The other students here during my stay, were here for 3-5 weeks and I can see that would be very useful. The teachers are all very well educated and experienced language specialists, all fun, nice and helpful too. My few Spanish skills were greatly improved with structured learning time, one on one tutoring and small group or private cultural outings as well as casual, conversational time. A personal request to go to the Frida Kahlo museum in Mexico City was easily accepted. My understanding of the language, grammar and context were wonderfully taught and I have gained a lot of knowledge and inspiration to continue learning and practicing the Spanish language upon returning home to Oregon. Special thanks to all the teachers, ( plus cook and housekeeper) and the manager Raúl for attending to so much and making this experience perfect. The school itself is a home with 4 private rooms with bathroom for student, communal and teaching spaces. It is in a quiet and safe neighborhood and the swimming pool was a bonus for these warm days in late May. Gracias por todos.
    Muchas gracias :-) Very happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us.

I had a terrible, nasty experience with this program. I booked and paid my deposit in early 2023, then just before the trip my mother suddenly got sick and actually died in April 2023. Obviously I couldn't go. I was told due to the conditions for which I couldn't attend I could use my deposit for another trip - how kind, generous and understanding I thought. This was, however, an outright lie. I told Bart that I was a teacher and could only travel at spring break. So months before this year's spring break I asked to re-book. I was told, no, that's not possible. You can only book within 30 days of the program. How are you supposed to book flights under those conditions? I offered to pay the program in full, but again was rebuffed. Bart said he would, however, let me know if the program was filling up. So 35 days before the program I booked my flights, and then emailed him to say flights were booked. He then told me the program was full. He never informed me that it was even filling up, let alone full. It is obvious to me that this man had no intention of ever honouring my deposit. Stay away. Try Fluenz instead.

You should also inform readers you canceled at the very last minute, thus leaving us unable to sell that week's slot with the subsequent loss of revenue! You should also inform readers I waived away the penalty we apply in case of last-minute cancellations. You should also inform readers I informed you about the 30-day policy when you wanted to cancel. Not only did I communicate all this via email, all the above is also written in our sales conditions, which are not hidden: links can be found on our site, on the booking form, on your booking confirmation and the final price proposal. Our sales conditions also recommend purchasing travel insurance to be covered if you need to cancel last minute. That said, it’s perfectly possible to book a flight 30 days ahead. So why did you purchase your flights 35 days before without even checking availability with me first? Why didn't you purchase travel insurance, as recommended? Of course, we don't like to read negative reviews. But fortunately, and that matters, for each negative review we have hundreds of guests who have truly enjoyed their Spanish immersion with us. If that wasn’t the case, we wouldn’t be in business since 1998. P.S. Fluenz and Anders Languages offer a different type of immersion: we complement each other. We do have guests who have visited both of us.

I became a fan of Anders Languages back in 2019 in Cuernavaca, MX. The teachers were amazing. I learned a lot and I was able to bring my Spanish to another level. When I returned to NYC, all of my teachers were quite impressed with my speaking and understanding. Not only did I learn, but I also had fun and made friends.

Returning to Anders in 2022 was a no-brainer for me, and as we were going to be in Mérida in the Yucatán, I jumped at it. The teachers are still top notch. The excursions and events, such as visiting pyramids, seeing flamingos up close and visiting a cenote, and learning about cantinas, piñatas and tequila and mezcal were fun. The staff was so accommodating with whatever needs that each student had. I made new friends this time around too. In fact, I plan to go back to do another Anders course in 2023.

Anders’ teaching model works for me. I prefer not living with a family in another country, but I understand that this type of immersion works the best. At Anders, you are living in your own room at the school, but you are having your meals with the teachers and other students and speaking in Spanish, as if you’re with a family. This gives me some privacy while being immersed in the language.

I am so happy to have found this amazing Spanish immersion school. My two weeks at the Anders residence in February 2022 were exhausting but truly unforgettable. Each of the 5 professors I had were simply outstanding - intelligent, engaging and fun. They completely customized my experience based on my level of Spanish, which is around B1. My goal was to improve my conversation skills and that is exactly what happened. We took many day excursions in the area. I saw so much and learned a ton about the history and people of Mexico. The daily meals provided at the residence were delicious. And the best part is that everything was in Spanish - a true immersion experience. I highly recommend Anders Languages to any Spanish learner of any level. I look forward to returning one day.

I had the most fantastic time. It was not only an immersive language experience but also an immersive cultural experience. I was able to taste common Mexican dishes from both elegant restaurants and markets in Pueblo towns through the program. And the food was always perfecto!! The teachers however make the program. They are kind and very supportive and truly encourage speaking as much Spanish as possible. I would definitely love to come again in the future.
