I attended the 15 hour per week option. I would have preferred 2 hours of grammar and one hour of conversation instead of 3 hours of grammar. There needs to be a better system for doing the dishes from lunch.

I liked the excellent teaching, friendly staff and sense of community surrounding the school.

They have an excellent lunch service with homemade Mexican cuisine at very affordable prices. Also the school is located inside a roomy traditional hacienda style building with an open courtyard which adds to the overall atmosphere. On the other hand, I found that the school's policy of basing their prices in American currency made the school more expensive and somewhat punitive for Canadians.
