Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
I really enjoyed the classes. We used a great book and I felt like I received individual attention. Every day I left the class feeling like I had learned something new and useful to me. Especially great was that we focused on a variety of language competencies including reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
Negative aspects:
The 15 minute pauses in between 2 hour sessions was too short. At least 20 minutes would have been better.
Other comments:
Very well done program.

As the school is principally an English school, the number of Spanish students is small and not really interested in school excursions (therefore there were none).

The excursion to Tequila is a good way to get to know your fellow students! If you got the energy, take the Conversation classes too!
Other comments:
I didn't like the leadership and the fact that they seem to earn a LOT more than the professors! Seems fishy. Mark seemed bossy and didn't treat me and the people working for him well when there was a small problem.

Great staff. Great Guest House. However, the desks in the classrooms are really small and it is really difficult to write and take notes on such small desks.

A little bit too expensive. I would study here for a week, make friends, then either attend another school that is much cheaper or take private classes outside of the school (also much cheaper).
