Learning Spanish abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico is one of many language immersion programs offered by AmeriSpan. Diversity is the word that best describes Mexico's people and geography. Over 50 different indigenous groups, each with its own language, comprise 28% of Mexico's 83 million inhabitants. Divided by the Tropic of Cancer into the temperate North and the tropical South, the country boasts snow-capped volcanoes, jungle clad beaches, deserts, archeological ruins, modern cities, upscale resorts, and isolated villages.
Learn Spanish Language in Mexico:
The state of Oaxaca is one of the most important archaeological zones in Mesoamerica. The city boasts an abundance of colonial architecture and a strong indigenous presence. The ambiance is both relaxed and energetic. Oaxaca has one of the most active central plazas in Mexico; there is rarely a dull moment. The blend of cultures sets a tone that is both remote and cosmopolitan.
Oaxaca Spanish School Facilities:
Our school is just 5 minutes walking from the Zocalo in the historic district of Oaxaca. The colonial-style building has 18 classrooms, a conference room, a large patio and a library with 3 computers, where participants can check their email. There is capacity for 90 students/day.
