Rating: 5/5


I❤️GTO. Such a beautiful city& in an amazing setting surrounded by mountains and high desert. Always stuff to do! Everything was accessible due to the size of the city. I always felt safe, went where I wanted to and when.


Rating: 4/5


Guanajuato is DRY!!! Pay far more attention to hydration, both internal and external, while you'r'e there, than you might be used to. The city is gorgeous. One of the most beautiful cities I have had the pleasure to visit.


Rating: 5/5


Very safe. It is good city if you want to concentrate on your studies.

Not clear test per level. They do not provide books or exercise book. You just catch up with the other students when you arrive.

Lessons concentrate too much on grammar and reading/writing and no enough on speaking fluency and pronunciation. Teachers speak too fast using vocabulary and tenses that were never taught, and if students do not understand, they simply say it in English, rather that repeating it slower or writing it on the board. Very frustrating.

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.
I can’t wait to go back! This is an experience I will always remember!

Friendliness of the staff. Flexibility of changing class for aptitude. Small number of students in each class.
School name signboard is needed at entrance. When I was looking for the location at arrival on Sunday, I wasn’t able to find it. Some neighbours didn’t even know.

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.
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.
