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.
