The Spanish Immersion School is committed to teaching you Spanish -- and to sharing with you the wonderful diversity of Oaxaca. We do this by holding classes in important cultural settings around the city and by hosting students on amazing excursions to points of interest all around the valley.
Transportation is included, and we offer the choice to travel by private vehicle or take the ‘local’ route via shared taxi or public transport offering more of a real Mexican experience. Discover Oaxaca with our safe, affordable and comprehensive tours.
Our extensive activity program allows students to practice their Spanish outside the classroom! Our evening and afternoon activities are an essential feature of the overall program.
A Packed Program of Excursions
An essential part of our learning experience is the excursion program. This includes cultural visits to locally renowned museums such as Museo de Arte contemporáneo de Oaxaca, Museo Textil de Oaxaca, Museo de los Pintores Oaxaqueños, shopping trips to local markets and 'purely fun' trips to themed cultural towns such as San Martin Tilcajete, Santo Tomas Jalieza, Cuilapam de Guerrero, etc.
Secure and Safe Environment
We have full-time staff responsible for the social and excursion programs and for organizing afternoon and evening activities.
Our structured, supervised program of activities and excursions ensures our students can enjoy their time outside of the classes in safety.
Continuous Learning Experience
Some of our morning Spanish lessons are devoted to preparing for upcoming excursions. Students are taught essential language and given the background to landmarks so they can make the most of their day out. The various attractions that students will visit are researched and used to stimulate discussion and learning. In this way learning does not just take place in the classes. Students are given tasks to carry out during their trip, such as a quiz, a worksheet or a questionnaire. Our excursions are not just "a day out," they are a continuation of the learning program.
We look forward to sharing with you the Oaxaca we know and love!
