The quality of the lessons was good with a good teacher. Especially very practical with an emphasis on talking and listening!
The classrooms echo quite a bit, so it is sometimes difficult to understand.

The teacher I had and the director IH Oaxaca couldn't have been better; they were helpful, friendly, and very encouraging. The location was great and the little cafe in the courtyard served a very nice cappuccino.

Information about Oaxaca

Why Oaxaca? A cultural colossus fit to rival anywhere in Latin America, Oaxaca is a city in central Mexico. Lovers of culture will be in heaven here as Oaxaca is one of those cities where all the historical periods of a country shines: pre-Hispanic, colonial, independent, modern, and contemporary. It is an architectural gem with natural elegance in every corner, colonial building, museum, pre-Columbian ruins and the many brilliant baroque churches that are to be found at every turn. All of this coupled with its majestic churches and refined plazas have deservedly earned it a Unesco World Heritage badge. And if that's not enough to get you planning your trip already, fluorescent lagoons, lush mountains, culture, crafts, gastronomy, folklore, fiestas and many more great experiences should definitely win you over.
