Other comments: It would be essential if the school checked the host family personally. I was in a vegetarian family! And in Uruguay! My host father had terminal cancer and is dying. You can imagine, what kind of dramatic scenes happened in the family and I was in the middle of it.
Good teachers, school located in a good area.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Summer vacation at the Montevideo school is Dec.15-Mar.15, so there are few students there in that period, and staff can give you a lot of individual attention.
Other comments: The textbook/audio program they are using was designed for Portuguese speakers learning Spanish, and is not appropriate for teaching Spanish to English speakers.
