We spent two weeks in Oaxaca and took Spanish lessons 4 to 5 hours a day - each of our teachers was personable, attentive, and effective. And we were able to explore the town with them too. A tremendous experience.

The name is "Spanish Immersion School." Despite the English name, everything else is Spanish. However, you can email them in English and get a response in English.
