  • We took private lessons for about a month with Aida. We've had 3 different instructors over the years, and all have been excellent. Regardless of your level of Spanish (ours is advanced), I doubt you'...  more »
  • I took the one month, semi-immersion (4 hrs/day, 5 days/week) and found the experience wonderful. Teacher with the patience of a saint! I had zero Spanish language experience prior to this. I live in ...  more »
  • We have a lovely conversation with the director during our recent visit and also with an intermediate level student, and we feel this is the right place for us to start our immersion studies. Not only...  more »

  • This school was a great experience. I chose to take a full day’s worth of classes which meant that beyond book-based, classroom learning, conversation and grammar I had several classes in Spanish about Mexican history and culture. The teachers were smart, interesting and,in many cases, rather funny. I met a lot of different people in my classes and enjoyed the company of other students during the optional weekly cooking classes (in Spanish of course) and field trips to local cities and sites. As with any type of coursework, what you get out of it is commensurate with your effort. For me, over four weeks, I re-established the basics of intermediate Spanish (after 20 years) and then went beyond in my understanding due to the focus on grammar and the extensive conversation. I also met some really interesting people. Would do it again if I’m ever presented with the opportunity.
  • The school has very good teachers and beautiful grounds and is centrally located. However, San Miguel itself is loaded with many smug retirees who like being big fish in a little pond, and many come to this school. I did not enjoy my classes for this reason. Never again to SM. See the real Mexico, not this sanitized version thick with tourists.
  • My wife and I attended classes at La Academia for a month, followed by private lessons for two weeks. It was a life saver for us, as we had little working knowledge of Spanish. The instruction was first class. Highly recommended.
  • If you want to get a college language credit and stay in a beautiful place, do go to this school. I enrolled but did not attend this school because I heard from other local Spanish teachers that this school is very focused on book learning, and I wanted to practice speaking. Even when I wrote emails in Spanish, I was responded to in English, and it was the same in person. There didn't seem to be any encouragement for me to practice speaking. The city of San Miguel is beautiful and so is the school, but they are mostly American students and there are a lot of American tourists in the city. Also, know that if you choose to pay for a host family, you may end up with what is more like a hotel. The families host as a full time job, it seems. When I arrived at the family I was meant to stay with, there were 4 other students, all speaking English and being served lunch by a family member. Just my limited experience.
  • The instructors are very good (well trained, humorous, varied activities), the course material is of high quality and the setting is"historic-very pleasant". The optional activities (cooking, dancing, history - all taught in Spanish) were fun and well worth it. The overall organization of the school and programs is excellent. The homestays were good and many students found nice B&B or hotel accommodation. The location of the school and homestays is terrific and the city itself is a great pleasure to stay in.
