What students liked about Plateros Spanish School, Guanajuato
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!
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.

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.
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.
Other comments: The instructors are very flexible and accommodating. If one finds one to be in the wrong level of instruction, it is easy enough to be moved to another level.
The quality of the teachers is excellent. And each selected one theme and taught for one week. I could repeat every day. It was really good to improve my Spanish.
