The school is located in the center of Playa del Carmen, 5 minutes walking from the beach and in 5 minutes you can reach anything you need (Walmart, Collectivos station, ADO Bus, 5th Avenue, etc). The classrooms are made into cosy Bungalows, everything is open and you can enjoy the environment (natural environment, sometimes you can spot animals walking around) The classrooms are composed of only a few stundents and this gives you the chance to interact a lot and to have small discussion about different topics. The professors always try to involve you when talking about something. I would personally provide books where you can write on, or, in alternative, more photocopies rather than a book where you have to complete the excercices separately (on a blank paper). The school proposes you free activities (Yoga classes, cooking classes, grammar classes) and excursions (at a fair price) in which only students partecipate to (ex: private cenotes). Normally one excursion is offered during the week and two during the weekend.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Yes, however you have to push yourself to talk to people that don't have your same nationality. In regards to the lessons, I feel I learnt a lot about grammar which was the most important part for me. »

Es war eine super Erfahrung. Eine Woche ist natürlich sehr kurz, aber ich glaube, ich konnte sehr profitieren. Schade konnte man die Bücher nicht behalten...

Host family
Sharing daily life with a family is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the Mexican culture and to practise your Spanish daily outside of class. The host families selected by our partner school generally live around 15-30 minutes from the school. You will stay in a single room with half-board. Sharing the life of local people is the best way to put the skills you learn in class into action.

Shared apartments
Located a 2-minute walk from the school, these apartments are the perfect option to fully enjoy your language stay! Stay in one of the two single bedrooms with a shared bathroom (twin bedrooms available for students traveling together), relax in the living or dining room with your flatmates or cook your meals in the kitchen. Bed linen is included (but not towels). Each apartment offers free Wi-Fi and a weekly cleaning service of common areas. Shops and restaurants are only 5 minutes away!

Residence
In Playa del Carmen, it is also possible to stay in a residence about 5 minutes’ walk from the school. You can choose either a single or double room. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped, with a desk for studying, a private bathroom and air conditioning. A Mexican breakfast will be served to you in the cafeteria each morning and you can take advantage of the terrace for BBQ’s with other students.

Scuba diving, horse riding, kite surfing, parachuting or playing volleyball, you can fill your afternoons with numerous water sports and outdoor activities. Though Playa del Carmen is especially known for its heavenly beaches, you will be equally charmed by the cultural and archaeological richness of its hinterland. Visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Xel-ha or those of Coba in the heart of the jungle. Go shopping or spend an evening in Cancún, Valladolid or Merida. An exciting program awaits you!
