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!

Quality of teaching / language progress: The course was great and I really enjoyed it.
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!

With Eder we had a super teacher in the beginners' group. He understood how to teach clearly with little extra excursions and with a lot of fun. If we had had the time, we would have liked to extend our stay with him.
