I've just spent 4.5 weeks at the school whilst staying in a homestay. The school is excellent and can easily cater to anybody's level of Spanish. The teachers are enthusiastic and experienced and just lovely people. Ileana (manager) makes every effort to look after each individual student and is receptive to any questions or queries you have. She arranged two... More

I spent a week at Oaxaca International as a motivated, intermediate level Spanish student. I took the most intensive option - 6 hours of classes daily - as my goal was to improve as quickly as possible. I didn't do a home stay as I had arranged accommodation separately. Classes were very intimate - I was with one other student... More

I attended Oaxaca International for two weeks. I was in the advanced class which had three students and was taught by Juan. He was an excellent teacher - knowledgeable, patient and entertaining. We spent the majority of class time talking Spanish on a wide range of subjects. A big bonus was learning about current affairs in Mexico from Juan. The... More

If you're looking to improve your Spanish AND live the authentic Oaxaca experience, this is the place to go! The teachers are knowledgeable, friendly and patient and they clearly enjoy what they do. The school is small, clean and safe and the location is fantastic! With a maximum of 4 students per group, the classes are flexible, personalized and laid-back.... More

I was suppose to go to Guatemala for study but because the visa issue I stayed in Mexico instead, so I didn't really plan the school before. But I was quite surprised by how lovely and trustful the school is. I took private class for seven weeks, before that I barely spoke nothing, but I can fluently express my feelings,... More

I really enjoyed my class here with Ileana and her teachers. Karen and Pearl were outstanding teachers and the class size was super small and accommodating to our needs. I learned A TON and was never once bored or looking at my watch!

This school fit my needs very well. It is located within the city center so easy to access. The owner, Ileana, was great about answering my many questions about the school before I decided. She arranged two different home stays for me and I couldn't have been happier at either one. A week of classes 4 hours per day and... More

I travelled to Oaxaca with a friend, to take part in 2 intensive weeks of Spanish study. I have never been exposed to Spanish before, and left feeling extremely confident in basic communication to help me with my travels into Central America. The environment is extremely personal, quaint and the ideal place to have a clear mind to learn the... More

All I can say is I had the the best time and would recommend this city, this school and homestay. Ileana runs a very enthusiastic school. The teachers were great and had a fun sense of humor. The excursions that the school arranged were not to be missed. The homestay family were warm and friendly and encouraged you to speak... More
