The beautiful city of Merida is located in the northwestern part of the Yucatán Peninsula in southeastern Mexico. It was founded in 1542 by Francisco de Montejo and built on the Maya city of T'ho which had been a center of Mayan culture and activity for centuries. Nowadays Merida – also known as the „White City“ - is one of the most tranquil and safest cities in Mexico.
Our Spanish School is situated northeast of the historic center in the Las Brisas neighborhood. It`s a quiet and safe place, which not only ensure easy and fast access to many parts of the city but also offer a great variety of recreational and commercial sites, including parks, cafes, restaurants, shops and banks.
The school building itself is a typical Merida townhouse which retains much of the charm and intimacy of a family home. Our facilities consist of 4 bright indoor classrooms, all fully equipped and air-conditioned, 1 outdoor class in our tropical courtyard, a cafeteria and a terrace where students can relax during breaks between Spanish classes.
All our courses are designed to help students improve their Spanish focusing on the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. As we believe that communication is the key and the main reason for learning languages, our highly experienced and professional teaching staff concentrates on practical communication using innovative methodologies and technologies as well as meaningful materials related to real-life situations. In addition, we regularly arrange teacher guided excursions to encourage our students to speak and understand Spanish in different environments.
The accommodation is an essential part of a student’s stay with us too. It not only complements the students' learning experience but also affects the students' ability to study and improve the Spanish language. We know that our students have different accommodation preferences and do therefore provide a range of different accommodation options. With a large number of selected host families, a variety of self-catering apartments as well as a good selection of hotels, guest houses and hostels all within walking distance of our schools, we offer a choice of accommodation options for all kind of needs.
