The school is in the Las Brisas neighbourhood, just north of the city centre, surrounded by eateries, schools, convenience stores and local shops. With the powerful history of the Mayans and the Colonial Spaniards seen throughout Merida, students have much to keep themselves busy in a city steeped in history and beautiful architecture. Attractions such as the Catedral de Mérida, the Plaza Grande and the Mayan World Museum of Merida are among some of the city's most visited locations. Day trips to Mayan sites such as Dzibilchaltún Mayan Ruins, Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Kabah are available locally and are a must-see for anyone travelling to the area.

Course selection: Course selection at the Spanish Center includes something for students of all levels, with General Spanish courses, taught in groups, available over several intensities and schedules, all year round. Private programmes are also available, in addition to Business and DELE Exam Preparation programmes.

School facilities: The school's facilities are excellent, offering students all they need to reach their language goals in a comfortable and friendly environment. These facilities include a cafeteria, a library, movie room, auditorium, garden and a student support desk for any questions or queries that may arise.

Additional information: Merida is hailed as one of the safest cities in the Americas and has also been voted the Cultural Capital of Las Americas on several occasions.

Student opinions about Spanish Center , Merida
Liked
I was at the language school for 10 weeks with the 4h per day package and am 100% satisfied with the result!
I arrived with virtually zero Spanish knowledge and within the 10 weeks we went through all the important grammar rules of the language. In combination with self-study & follow-up after class, a lot of Netflix in Spanish and conversations with Spanish native speakers in my free time, I went from virtually zero to a level where I can now hold simple conversations in Spanish for several hours. Of course, there are still some problems with conversations with several people (with a lot of slang) and with very specific topics, but with the basis of 10 weeks of Spanish course, I now feel comfortable with expanding my Spanish in everyday life and through independent vocabulary learning and active listening/speaking. Another thing that deserves special mention is that Merida as a city is ideally suited for learning Spanish in Latin America because, despite the relatively cheap cost of living, it offers security like in European countries. For example, I had a private Airbnb house with a large garden close to the school for €420 per month, including AC, water, electricity, internet, gas, etc. I was able to live in a house in Merida.
Disliked
Facilities and rooms are not luxurious and there are no fancy extras such as a private pool or the like. Everything is functional and does not go beyond the basic necessities. For the price, it is very fair and lacks nothing for learning Spanish.
