This school is a treasure. It runs in the most perfect way. They know exactly what they're doing in terms of placing people, filling the schedule with material to cover what they need just right. They know exactly how to teach. The teachers are warm and care about teaching. There is so much integrity. The school is clean and constantly keeps it that way.
I brought the whole family to take classes. Everyone had a blast.
It's super fun to run out during breaks and buy food from the local empanada woman, and later from the local lunch woman... they came at each break with the most delicious food and everyone runs eagerly from class to buy. It's a treat and easier than getting lunch in any other way, which would take too long. The school grounds are beautiful, with names on the trees so we can know what species they are. The chairs to eat on outside have different statues built in them. It's all so charming. Maya, the local cat, is usually around to keep the kids happy, and plenty of iguanas come around. Yoga on their platform with beach breeze is so nice, and Karol teaches salsa every night--so you can dance on the beach on the platform. She is the best teacher and best dancer ever. She is a genius at breaking it down for beginners. We were allowed and encouraged at orientation to fill up our water bottles with their filtered water so that we don't kill the environment with too much plastic. They make it clear that you can feel comfortable like it's your home. One time, a nearby restaurant's bathroom was messed up, so I brought my daughter to the school --at 9pm at night--to use the bathroom. Students have access to the computers... it's all high tech. But the lesson plans are interesting and work. People can truly learn a whole new language from start or improve on what they know, and still have time to explore, surf, relax, and vacation. The other students are also fascinating to meet. Everyone on staff was friendly and super smart.
I really enjoyed the conversations and readings at the higher level for refining the subjunctive. :)
