Where should I learn espanol in Mexico?!

by jat80

I'm planning going to go to Mexico very shortly, primarily to go to a language school & homestay with a family.

But there's so many schools/ads online - I can't work out where are the good places to go?!

I don't have too much time in Mexico (prob 5 weeks) - and at least 3wks will be spent at the school. I'm interested in Mexican culture (people), but as I am young, I am also very interested in nightlife. I'm not that interested in history as much as the way of life of everyday people (i.e. what it would be like living there now).

Currently, I'm finding that Guadalajara looks like an interesting place, since it's the second biggest city, but safer than Mex City (and also close to the town Tequila!). But many sites/schools seem to be located in other places...

Are there any schools and/or areas/suburbs (close to nightlife, but also safe) in Guadalajara.

Or do you think it would be better to just visit Guadalajara and do the schooling elsewhere??? As I will spend most of my time wherever the school is located). If so - where do you recommend to visit?!

Your help is appreciated! Thanks!

try CEPE, it's in guadalajara. i went there for 2 months about 5 years ago, it was great. they offer home stays and it's in a real nice part of town and there is plenty of nearby nightlife, plus a dunkin donuts real close and i heard there was a gold's or world gym close by too. the teachers were all really cool and younger too, in there 20's and 30's. the instruction is great and there are students from all over the world, many speak no english so you're forced to speak to them in spanish. most students took 2 courses daily, classes started at around 8am and finished at noon, leaving plenty of time for exploration. the cost i found very reasonable, i went through some 3rd party in the states and ended up getting ripped off a bit so do it through cepe if you go. the only drawback was that even though it is the unversity of guadalajara, there are no mexican students at the school. the campuses are spread out throughout the city and cepe is only for foreigners. i can't remember too much, but i think they did offer some non-language classes for free at the other campuses, not sure though. if your more interested in meeting mexicans i talked to a girl who was a classmate at cepe while i was there then she transfered to autonoma and said it was much better in regards to interaction with mexican students. i don't know anything about autonoma other than i hear it is real expensive. hope this helps. (some links to bars and clubs)

a couple of years agoI have been on a language trip to Gd. and have been to the CEPE and Vancouver language school.
Both are good, however, the CEPE has more of a serious class style. I prefered the Vancouver language school, because even after classes the really nice teachers were socializing (go and drink tequila for example but speak spanish )with the students. Age of the students was from beginning 20 up to 45, so very mixed. Both schools are centrally located.Vancouver LS also has a housing service, which I used too.

have fun!!

Travel Tips for Guadalajara

Neck braces...the new "it" accessory

by cybercutie

I swear, one in every ten people here are sporting neck braces. I don´t know if this is because of the fact their driving is so erratic here (I believe I have mentioned the fact that pedestrians are considered roadkill), or the fact that Mexicans have no support in their necks. Either way, I need to get me one of these...I am starting to look unstylish...

Mercado Libertad or San Juan de Dios Market

by Ekahau

If you are in to big markets this is the mother of them all -- it is reported to be the biggest in Latin American. If you can not find it here well you know the rest. This is also know as the San Juan de Dios Market not sure in fact if there are two markets that run in to each other or just one really huge one called by two names. Its has three huge floors and lots of basement around the parking area it is “organized” thematically, as in electronic contraband here chicken neck over there with the food poising food stands on the second floor. I love to eat in this place but well you are at your own risk.

The market opens Monday-Saturday 10-8, but lots of stores close at 6; Sunday close by 3.


Visit Tlaquepaque

by jag17

"Day Trip"

We returned to Rio Caliente this year for five more days of thermal waters, spa treatments, hiking and yoga....and of course; a shopping trip! We visited the very cute town of Tlaquepaque. A very artsy, upscale town with ceramics, weaving, embroidery, blown glass and leather. You may also find some tequila in a shop or two! Also, a very nice church located right in the downtown area. A fun place to spend a few hours.
