Restaurants and supermarkets are all right around the corner.
We accommodate you in the hostel and use various teaching stations around the building. Read here how we work with you to teach you Spanish!

The school and Avelina have been a pleasure. I hope to return someday and speak fluent Spanish. This has been a great experience for me. I have learned more than I expected too. I hope to return and continue my Spanish language education. Maribel and Avelina have been so helpful.
