    Our Spanish immersion programs excel from others because we offer more than general Spanish formation. Our school understands that professionals, like you, require learning Spanish for a particular professional field. For this reason we have developed specialty courses geared towards building professional vocabulary platforms for technical sentence structuring for students who need to engage in specific conversations with their clients, personnel, or community. You may view a detailed description of all these programs at the following link: http://www.spanish-school.com.mx/spanish-specific-purposes.php
  4. Structured:
    Our Spanish programs are 100% in Spanish and geared towards helping you actually speak the language. We use the direct conversational approach which has been fully proven as the best method for students to learn how to comprehend and speak any language. Our immersion experience combines solid course structures with innovative teaching techniques to provide you with the best learning experience possible. Regardless of your current level or the duration of your program we guaranty positive results at the end of your course.
  5. Transcendent:
    For more than 40 years our institution has dedicated itself to teaching Spanish to foreign students. Our institution has withstood the test of time and continues leading the field of language instruction not only in the city of Guadalajara but in the entire state of Jalisco. Our school has distinguished itself from others thanks to its highly qualified and professional personnel. All our professors are not only native Spanish speakers but they also count with a university degree for their particular professional fields, unlike most other institutions that have under-qualified Spanish speakers with no academic or professional formation imparting their lessons.
  6. Accredited:
    Attending an institution that has national accreditations is of importance because the accrediting organization validates the school’s legitimacy. You will find that our school is not only accredited by national academic organizations but by international ones as well. We are accredited by the Mexican Department of Education, the Instituto Cervantes of Spain, ACTFL, CASLT, AATSP, ALTO, among others. We are the only school in Jalisco certified as a DELE examination center. The DELE exam is the international Spanish level standardized exam which is valid in 120 countries around the world. Our organization is also accredited as a socially responsible organization for promoting cultural understanding through the elimination of language barriers among people from all over the world.
  7. Native:
    Our institution is 100% native; this means that you will be immersed in an entirely Spanish speaking environment. Not only are our classes presented entirely in Spanish but our administrative personnel will also encourage you to use the language when addressing your inquiries although English is also spoken just in case you need to go over your questions in a language you already master. Our school also counts with an ESL student body numbering 2000 plus! This means that you will have a great number of people to talk to, socialize with, and of course practice your Spanish. The unique tradition of Guadalajara will offer you an experience of Mexico without parallel. After all, Guadalajara is considered the cradle of Mexican tradition and birthplace of Tequila and Mariachi music.
  8. Direct:
    IMAC Spanish Language Programs is all about learning Spanish, for this reason we use the direct communicative approach to teach our students. Our objective is to provide you with the necessary resources to connect your thoughts with the actual words that are coming out of your mouth. An armored grammatical structure provides our students with the solid foundations required for quick sentence structuring and vocabulary reference. The immersion experience is geared towards teaching you the language by living in a Spanish speaking environment; the immersion experience is hands down the best way to learn any language.
  9. Innovative:
    Everybody knows for a fact that the world does not sit still. Our institution is no exception; we keep up to date with the latest Spanish learning technologies. As a testament to this technological innovative requirement stands our Spanish multimedia lab. Our lab counts with state of the art equipment and vanguard interactive Spanish learning software. All the learning resources provided for you in our lab will exponentially increase your ability read, write, and speak Spanish! The human innovative factor is also covered by our school since our professors are constantly updated on the latest teaching techniques through regularly scheduled seminars and workshops.
  10. Nonstop:
    Who says you can not study Spanish whenever you want? Not us! We encourage it! Unlike most other schools that have set initiation dates for their programs as well predetermined course durations, our school does not. We have a new course beginning every week. This means that you may choose to begin our group lessons virtually every Monday of the year for any of the 16 different levels of Spanish that we offer and the private program any day of the week Monday through Friday. Not only can you begin whenever you want, but you can also study for as long as you want. 1 week, 1 month, 4 months, at IMAC Spanish Language Programs you decide.
  11. Gainful:
    Why learn Spanish? The reasons are simple; professional, social, or academic gain. If you are a professional looking to better communicate with your Spanish speaking clients or expand your business into a Spanish speaking market; an immersion program with our school is the best way to accomplish your set goals. If you are simply looking to better communicate with the Spanish speaking community in your town or retiring in a Spanish speaking country; this immersion experience will provide you with the language skills you require to socialize with all your neighbors. If you are a student who wishes to obtain academic credits for their Spanish courses abroad; we can provide you with as detailed course transcript and academic credits.
