What our students said about Guadalajara

5.0

Rating: 5/5

I found the people in Guadalajara to be kind and very friendly. It was very easy to make Mexican friends in bars and restaurants. Also, the city is moderately urban and calm, so I think you can concentrate on both fun and studying. It only takes about 5 hours by bus to get to the beach, so it is even possible to go to Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, or Punta Mita with friends on the weekends. I love the very beautiful Guadalajara.

The city has many museums and great food options. It is affordable. It was not a very safe city for a solo female traveler. I did not feel safe in the first neighborhood I stayed in so I had to move. I experienced a lot of cat calling in the first neighborhood. After I moved, I felt more safe but still could not go out alone at night.

I gave 3 points to nightlife because I didn't go out at night. It was safer than I expected and the people in town were friendly. The climate was pleasant and comfortable. The people in the city are basically very kind and friendly.

The people are friendly and the food is delicious. The drink called "Horchata" is also delicious. Even if you don't know each other, you become friends right away and share sweets with them. There are many friendly people.

The professor was excellent and the school administrator was very helpful. I liked the optional conversation meet up in the afternoon as it gave me a chance to converse with native Spanish speakers.

I really enjoyed the classes. We used a great book and I felt like I received individual attention. Every day I left the class feeling like I had learned something new and useful to me. Especially great was that we focused on a variety of language competencies including reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
Very well done program.

The teachers were incredible! They were amazing at answering questions, teaching the material in an approachable way, and also keeping things fun. I also loved the interaction with the English students (conversation class, the weekly walking field trips).

The location and my teacher were OK.
As the school is principally an English school, the number of Spanish students is small and not really interested in school excursions (therefore there were none).

The professors are really amazing!
I didn't like the leadership and the fact that they seem to earn a LOT more than the professors! Seems fishy. Mark seemed bossy and didn't treat me and the people working for him well when there was a small problem.

Great Teachers. The student book allows you to do alternate between grammatical exercises, readings and vocabulary exercises so there is a lot of interaction between the students and the teachers.
Great staff. Great Guest House. However, the desks in the classrooms are really small and it is really difficult to write and take notes on such small desks.
