Student opinions about Plateros Spanish School, Guanajuato

Liked
The teachers at Plateros Spanish School are super nice and know their job. They know what's important and how to teach you best. And yet they all have their own style. I was thrilled! You could always discuss the pace with them, arrange repetitions or clarify questions. Many thanks to Roman, Mali, Miriam and Ismael! I feel very well equipped with the basics and can build on it on my travels.

Too many positive aspects! The teachers were talented, helpful, interesting and friendly! The classes were fun and relevant- never boring or long. I always felt engaged and was able to work on what I needed/wanted. Homework and in class exercises provided lots of practice! Lots of individual attention. I also loved the setting- so beautiful and homey. The location in El Centro is amazing too.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Best coffee-Cafe Tal and Conquistador; Alongdigas Museum; Las Minas/mines in Valenciana; the churches; sopa Azteca at ‘Frieda’s on Los Postitos, fresh fruits (especially prickly pear/‘tuna’), ice cream/sorbet on the street; GTO University; Don Quixote Museum; Estacion Gelato I also recommend contacting an ecotour company called Cacomixtle (cacomixtle.com). They are very affordable and offer urban walking & food tours, hiking trips, mountain biking etc. My guide Susana spoke English but was willing to help me practice Spanish. She was also super interesting and knowledgeable!

Quality of teaching / language progress: Teachers, lessons, classes & homework exercises were all amazing! I feel like I learned a lot in a short time. Class material was very interesting and relevant! Lots of historical and cultural information too. I also enjoyed meeting the other students too. The school is super cute and comfortable! The location in El Centro was very convenient too. I wish that there would have been more social opportunities, but summer might be a hard time for that.
Other comments I can’t wait to go back! This is an experience I will always remember!

The location was ideal to get to know the city of Guanajuato and to be a part of its daily life. The instructors were great at sparking conversation and asking questions to keep us talking. They spoke slowly and clearly without seeming to try to make it easier for us. They were interested and interesting. The whole experience was wonderful.
Disliked
No orientation or introduction to the city. Instructors let many errors (grammar & punctuation) slide without correction. I know they wanted us to keep talking and not disturb our chain of thought too much, but we got sloppy and missed opportunities for learning. Classroom management was a bit weak at times:I was in several classes with only one other student, which was fantastic, but my fellow student dominated the time in some conversation classes I got thoroughly bored & frustrated … until I added private classes instead.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Take chances with the language and speak to people in shops and on the street. That’s where you really shed inhibitions. And 24-hour immersion really makes a difference.

Quality of teaching / language progress: The 35Plus was described as a 7-hour combination of small group and 1on1 classes, but that was not actually the case. It was an excellent program, well worth the price, but I would recommend that one sign up for 5-6 classes and clearly request/include a private class or two to concentrate on applied grammar instruction each day … if one is serious about learning (and not on vacation with classes thrown in).
Other comments The director and instructors were all very interested in helping us thrive and in learning about our environments even as they taught us about history, culture, legends, and literature of Mexico. I am Very glad I was at Plateros.

The level of instruction was absolutely superb. I enjoyed and I mean enjoyed, three hours of grammar review and two hours of history, Mexican politics, Mexican psychology and much more. Most of the instructors that I knew were very cultured, well educated people on a level that you would find anywhere else in the world.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss As anywhere in Mexico, you literally need to watch your step. That means that you could easily trip over things, fall off ledges, and incur minor injuries. Europeans and North Americans would likely not find hand railings where one would expect but all you have to do is pay attention. Do not wander around on auto pilot and besides, you might miss interesting linguistic and cultural phenomena.

The school is not always the most organized. One morning when I showed up my first two classes had been rescheduled. This is no fault of the teachers but rather a fault of the organization. There are also no afternoon activities or excursions offered by the school.

Facilities were meager. Water bottle was empty one or two days. Lack of soap in bathroom a couple days. No extras like scheduled events, maps, notebooks.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss In the winter, bring a heating pad. Try to get a good street map from the kiosk vendor at Jardin Union or perhaps a news stand. Good walking shoes a must. Check out the Cervantes/Quixote museum for music programmes. Don't miss the Alóndiga. Valenciana and a tour of a mine is worth the taxi fare.

Quality of teaching / language progress: I was lucky that I happened to be the only student, so I was able to study for a month in private lessons at a very reasonable price.
