''I came to the Spanish School in April 2012 at the start of my travels in Latin America. It gave me the perfect start to learning Spanish. The friendliness of the staff and the warm atmosphere made studying there a joy. As a total beginner, the language was made to feel as less daunting as possible and I thorou...ghly enjoyed my time there. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.'' Spanish course. John Townsend, UK
''I was two weeks in Puerto Vallarta the summer of 2012. I travelled there alone and the school organized a host family for me really close to the school and the beach. Perfect! I really liked the way they teached us spanish there. I did everything from learning from a book, playing games, singing songs and making excursion to learn new words. This was great! You could also eat really good and homemade mexican lunches at the school. And they had a cooking course for us.'' Spanish course. Tonje O., Norway
''The style of the Spanish school is excellent. I adore the personal nature and "homey" feel of the hacienda style campus. Everyone in the school felt like someone you could trust! The best thing about the school is the people, Susie at reception, Mayoli in the kitchen and of course my teachers Sergio and Enrique, they were all wonderful.'' Spanish course. A. Grubard, USA
''I very much enjoyed my time at this school. I have made some very good friends and at the same time learned to speak Spanish. I would love to come back and continue my education one day if time allows, hopefully in a less humid time of the year.Coming to this school has encouraged me to look into trying out a different language in another country. I will miss you all and look forward to seeing you again one day.'' Spanish course. G. Penfold, New Zealand
