Esteban, Miriam, and Sandra are extraordinarily kind, expert teachers who figure out your level of Spanish very quickly and cater conversational and grammar lessons for your needs.
The classes are extremely individualized and interactive and since I was at the school for so long, I had different maestros which was great because their different styles kept the lessons fun.

I now can say that I’ve had a relationship with Luz, Karina, Erika and Magda for a year and a half, starting with the online classes that I took before studying with them in Oaxaca for a month last year.
The location is just minutes away from the Zocalo which was a perfect place to go right after class for lunch, relaxation, and a chance to practice your Spanish!

The class experience is seamless and for anyone that enjoys food and cooking and learning about a culture and the food you will enjoy every part of the class; from the market to the mezcal tasting!
From a visit to the market for ingredients, to her cooking class, she fills your time with wonderful details about what makes Oaxacan food unique, fragrant, and delicious.

Oscar is the most hospitable host, taking our class of 5 new friends through a foody whirlwind starting with breakfast, trip to the markets and a incredibly delicious variety of traditional Mexican dishes.
... avocado soup, 3 kinds of mole, tamales, chiles rellenos, tortillas and a sweet elote ice-cream which was AMAZING.I would highly recommend this class to people that like to learn about food and love good food.

I also enjoyed the small class sizes, coming from learning French in a classroom with 15-25 people, a class of 3 was wonderful!
The Mitla tour usually includes a mescal and family tapestry workshop and ends with the stunning el Hierve el agua waterfall.

We were fortunate that on our cooking day, Mario Terres, a fabulous chocolate maker from Mexico City, was there to conduct classes on creating the most beautiful chocolate desserts.
The cooking lessons themselves are fun, informative and you end up eating a magnificent meal (from appetizers to soups to main courses to desserts) cooked by you and your fellow students.

He also offered a weekend excursion for his guests to a large market in a nearby pueblo, mezcal palenque, and an off-the-beaten-path workshop for a multi-generation family of artisan weavers.
