The four of us arrived for three weeks of small intensive groups. The two teenagers who had some Spanish in high school were together and my husband and I were in another group for novices. The staff is amazing and so helpful. David helped us find an apartment to rent and assisted with travel plans and went above and beyond. Yashira,who greets you with a huge smile at the front desk, is willing to help you with anything. Edits makes sure you happy with you education plan. The instructions are top notch with not only learning the language but the culture. Although we learned grammar , the focus was on being able to communicate. We customized our class for what we wanted to learn and our Professor Ivonne Sanchez was outstanding. The teens had two different teachers Wen and Ero who made the learning fun. They participated in many games that encouraged my children to practice their Spanish outside of class so they could beat each other the next day.
When I asked about how to make purchases in Spanish we actually went to the markets together. Very helpful to have hands on activity and use Spanish in real life settings. They also arranged a tour of the Presidents palace and museums.
The afternoon activities provided by the school and lead by Wen were great! They allowed for my family and I to engage with the community of Spanish learners that were on all types of educational levels. We were able to see different parts of the city with an knowledgeable and local guide, which really added to our experience.
Casco Viejo is an amazing historic town. It is so safe as it the seat of government. You never knew what random festival or peaceful protest would take over the square that day. Wonderful restaurants and many beautiful views .
We plan to return to continue our studies and highly recommend this school!
