Language studies
There are many Spanish language schools in Mexico, mostly centred around the major cities such as Mexico City, Oaxaca, Cuernavaca and Guadalajara. As there is no accreditation scheme for private language schools at present, the standard and quality of teaching varies and students wanting to learn Spanish in Mexico should seek advice from their local education consultant or agent.

Intensive Spanish Course

Our intensive group Spanish courses consist of 4 hours tuition per day, from Monday to Friday. Classes normally take place from 09.30 to 13.30, with a 20-minute break taken halfway through the morning.

The course includes a programme of cultural and social activities that take place in the afternoons and evenings. Intensive Courses are offered at all levels from complete beginners to very advanced.

The average number of students per group is 3 to 4, with a maximum of just 8.

You can enrol for as many weeks as you like.

"I had an unforgettable summer in Playa del Carmen with IH Riviera Maya," says Vanessa Riva. "It's a perfect location, with wonderful staff. I had the opportunity to learn and improve my Spanish and I met interesting people from all over the world." Vanessa also took our diving course.

Tests and Certificates
On the first day of the course, if you have any prior knowledge of Spanish you have both an oral and a written entry test so that your level can be ascertained and you can be placed in the most appropriate group. The test normally takes around 40-60 minutes (depending on your level).

At the end of your course, you will be given a certificate, which indicates the number of hours you have studied with us and the level of ability you have reached.
