Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
They are very accommodating with regard to individual needs. I definitely recommend additional extra private lessons to work on specific things that you want and to improve your confidence in speaking the language even if you have to resort to "Spanglish" here and there!
Other comments:
Two weeks was perfect. I came back with much improved Spanish from a semi-beginner with the basics only. The teachers are great and the ambiance of the school is terrific. Don't forget to go on trips to the Cenotes and the ruins. Definitely worth it!
