Spanish Language Schools in Guanajuato for Two Teenagers (9 Replies)
Planning to send my two kids (19 and 16 years old) to Guanajuato for two weeks this summer to study Spanish and immerse themselves in the Mexican culture. Our preference is for them both to stay together with one host family. Both kids have had several years of Spanish; the older child has pretty good verbal comprehension but neither can speak Spanish comfortably. I'd say they are probably "low intermediates", skill-wise. I've read several review threads about different schools in...More

When I attended Plateros a couple of years ago, there was a 16 year old and several other teenagers. The school makes it a point to take everyone out together for one or two evenings a week, and my teacher also took me to the Alhondiga and explained everything to me (in Spanish, of course!) which was a fascinating experience. I plan to go back to Plateros this year because they do a better job of organizing the activities outside of class than most schools. My homestay was excellent, and the...More

Things to do in Guanajuato (0 Replies)
I'm staying near Guanajuato (centro) with my two daughters 12 & 19 for a couple of months. I'll be attending the university and I'm looking for activities to keep my kids busy. They are going to be attending the Escuela Falcon for a couple of hours each day but I was hoping to find a place where they can go to hang out. Does anyone know of good places to work out, a pool, soccer field, basketball field or a place to learn crafts? Gracias!
