I had a truly great experience at Amigos del Sol, and I can recommend the school enthusiastically for its personalized approach to language instruction, and its warm and welcoming atmosphere.
For my vacation this year in July, I decided to visit some friends in Puebla and then spend 10 days in Oaxaca. It was the perfect time to be in Oaxaca because the annual cultural festival, La Guelaguetza, takes place during the last week of July. Although I already speak Spanish fairly well, I was looking for a school where I could take private conversation classes for a few hours a day to reinforce my knowledge of the language and to polish my conversational skills. After reading the reviews of Amigos del Sol and communicating with Rogelio about my plans, I decided to enroll in classes.
The experience surpassed all of my expectations. Rogelio arranged for me to work with an excellent teacher, Efraín, who tailored the classes to focus on areas where I needed more practice – e.g., reported speech, idiomatic expressions, and workplace and business communications. To accomplish this we improvised scenes and acted out a whole range of situations. I have to say that it was incredibly fun and entertaining, and each day the four hours of class flew by!
Rogelio is very kind and thoughtful, and he is also very detail oriented. He made sure that I had all of the information I needed before I arrived on Oaxaca, and always responded immediately to my emails with concise answers to my questions. He also arranged for me to stay with a wonderful family where I had delicious home-cooked meals, and ample opportunity to practice my conversational skills. And, when I was having trouble finding a hotel room for a friend who was coming to visit me in Oaxaca for the weekend, Rogelio came to the rescue and was able to find a bed and breakfast at a very reasonable price - and at the height of the tourist season during La Guelaguetza!
