My partner and I studied Spanish for a month at Escuela Mexicana in their standard program (4 hours of class/day), which I highly recommend. They were very attentive and flexible with what our wants and needs were in learning Spanish and we were able to add/change our schedule as needed. I took a few private medical terminology classes, grammar, conversation, practical Spanish and cooking classes.

I could really tell how dedicated the teachers were (and the program as a whole) in making sure you learn as much Spanish as you can (both now and as continuing learners of the language), but just as important, in teaching us about the Mexican (pre-Hispanic) culture, traditions and history.

I really appreciated how enthusiastic the teachers were and really made learning Spanish fun. There were lots of hands-on/experiential learning activities such as cooking classes, dance lessons, board games, cultural workshops, excursions to historical landmarks, and they used music and art to teach us Spanish. I came in as a beginner student and left feeling like I absorbed so much more Spanish than what I would learn in a traditional classroom.

And just in case you’re wondering, Escuela Mexicana is located in the heart of Guanajuato on the most beautiful and colorful callejon that is close to everything! It’s very quiet and is safe to walk to and there isn’t a huge hill to climb!

If you’re wanting to learn Spanish and immerse yourself in the Mexican culture, Escuela Mexicana is the place for you!

Escuela Mexicana es lo mejor! I studied here with my family for 3 months and the teachers were great. There were so many activities for the kids and adults, like cooking classes. Learning how to make Gorditas with the resident chef was so much fun. All of the school activities were in Spanish so the "immersion" experience for learning the language is best for learning. I would recommend the school for individuals, families, and anyone who wants to learn Spanish in a beautiful city center.

Escuela Mexicana offers an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of Spanish and or improve your Spanish and or perfect your Spanish. As a beginner I was put in classes that met my ability level with teachers who challenged me to learn as much as I could in two weeks of classes. I highly recommend taking advantage of a learning opportunity like Eskuela Mexicana while visiting the beautiful city of Guanajuato. My host family was loving and offered me opportunities to learn more about the local culture. Exploring the city was wonderful and the people were friendly. I look forward to my next visit to Guanajuato and hope to be ready to take even more advanced courses at Eskuela Mexicana. Thank you to all the teachers who worked tirelessly to help me learn Spanish.

The Escuela Mexicana was an incredible experience for me! Everything went so smoothly! From airport pick up/drop off, to living with the most amazing family, to learning more Spanish language skills, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

The classes are structured such that you have the opportunity to learn grammar as well time to build fluency in the conversation classes. The teachers are incredibly kind and patient with their students. When you’re not in class, there are also other activities to do. The school provides weekly tours to local attractions and extra curricular activities such as cooking classes. The cooking class was my personal favorite!

Finally, being a foreigner and not speaking the language well can be intimidating but I felt incredibly safe and cared during my entire time. My host family was wonderful in addition to the sweet teachers and staff at the school!

I would highly recommend Escuela Mexicana to anyone interested in improving their Spanish and spending an extended amount of time in Guanajuato. The school is located in convenient location in the Centro Historico and provides a good sense of community if you're staying in Guanajuato for a few week or even months. I did the intensive traveller program for 3 weeks and really enjoyed my classes with Alex and Gerardo, my spanish definitely improved. I had two hours of group classes with Alex and two hours in a private class with Gerardo per day (Mon-Fri). The school has a nice rooftop with good views of the city. Juan Carlos does a good job of directing the programs at the school and offers activities such as cooking classes, hiking, tours, and other Mexican cultural activities.

I joined Juan Carlos’ class at Escuela Mexicana as a beginner student in 2021. Juan Carlos is an EXCELLENT Spanish teacher. Juan Carlos is very knowledgeable, patient, personable and brings out the best in students at all levels of learning. He’s great in answering questions and he encourages group interaction and practice that makes you feel comfortable about practicing your Spanish speaking. In addition to language (vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, etc.), Juan Carlos makes the class interesting by sharing information and discussing the Spanish culture. Top notch!

I studied in Escuela Mexicana for 3 months with my husband and 2 sons. We loved it! My kids loved their teacher and the other kids in the class. They learned so much! They worked on art activities and took field trips, both of which they loved. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with the quality of the teachers and classes. We learned grammar, culture, and had a conversation class. It was an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable experience! Highly recommend!!

I took the long term course and I didn't regret taking my Spanish course in Escuela Mexicana. As someone who initially learned Spanish through apps, my Spanish has dramatically improved in those 3 months. All the teachers are very helpful and patient with my questions and doubts. They always give their best answering my questions and explaining the concept and rules of Spanish language. I really enjoy my time in Escuela Mexicana and surely will return here again to further improve my Spanish.

This is a great language school! My daughters (ages 13 and 8) and I took lessons here for three weeks. All three of us had a wonderful time and we learned a lot! The teachers were very kind, patient, and skilled. We not only learned a lot of Spanish, but we also learned a lot about Mexican culture. We enjoyed the extra activities outside of class including hiking, cooking, and art. The teachers were great at adapting their lessons to different ages and levels. The school did an impressive job of creating a warm sense of community and the other classmates are also great!

We had a wonderful time at Escuela Mexicana. Juan Carlos masterfully scheduled me with different teachers as a part of an intensive course. I am so happy that I got to spend two weeks there. I enjoyed learning from various teachers - Gerardo, Adaly, Edith and Helena. They were all very involved with and dedicated to my learning goals. I also learned a lot of culture and language during cooking classes with Señora Aide.

Needless to say, Guanajuato is a fun city and there is so much to do within 5 min walk from the school. Our accommodation was also splendid. I would love to visit again and learn more once I get another such opportunity.
