Why Choose Spanish as Your New Foreign Language? Why is it Important to Learn Spanish?

Whether you are a full time student, a professional person, or someone that is interested in studying Spanish while on vacation here in Mexico, we have made learning  Spanish in Mexico very affordable. The total tuition investment charged by Spanish language schools in Mexico does vary considerably. Considering the quality of the instruction and the type of facilities we offer to our students, Instituto Mexico Americano de Cultura is one of the most competitively priced Spanish language immersion programs in Mexico. The following is a schedule for students who choose to study our most intensive language program currently available. For a complete list of tuition investment prices, see the bottom of the page.

DAILY ACTIVITIES:

-9:00 AM to 11:00 AM Students are involved in direct Spanish language instruction with a native instructor. All areas of Spanish language fluency are developed.

-11:00 AM to 11:15 AM
Students go to break.

-11:15 AM to 1:00 PM
Intensive Spanish classes with your instructor resume.

-1:00 PM to 2:00 PM In addition to the classroom instruction, you have unlimited access to our Multimedia Lab (email, Internet, interactive Spanish programs), free of charge. Our students are strongly encouraged to maximize their learning by attending our Multimedia Lab an additional hour daily, though you may use the Multimedia Lab for as long as you wish during school hours. This brings your number of hours to 25 weekly (20 hours of teacher instruction and a recommended minimum 5 hours of free lab time).

Students receive the opportunity to be involved independently with our computer assisted language laboratory. This is a service that will allow the Spanish language student to reinforce the skill areas of pronunciation, listening, reading, and writing at the same time. The students´ individual interests and areas of need are addressed as they work on the area that they choose.

We also offer our students the opportunity to participate in a language and cultural exchange group, which will allow the student to practice his or her new language skills with native Spanish speaking students in a relaxed, informal setting. This activity is supervised by an instructor every afternoon, and is free of charge; therefore adding an optional additional hour of instruction per day.

AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS

Students are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of cultural activities both here in the historical downtown area as well as around the city of Guadalajara. For more information see:

NOTE: Please keep in mind; schools that offer what seems like many class hours per day. A great price may be taking into account all the time when there is a teacher present in an activity which may not always involve language learning. The class hours that we offer, ALL involve formal learning under a structured program with students at your same group level and your official teacher, PLUS the varied activities , where an instructor is also present and our students enjoy at no cost. Want to save money? Check the total prices at your school. Is a daily and structured conversation class free? What about a media lab with the latest and greatest software aids? Does you school provide cultural exchanges and movies free of charge? Some schools do not charge for registration, but in the end, you pay more in higher prices, airport pick up, homestay placement fees, etc. More importantly, certain schools boast that they do not charge for learning material (books). However, what some of them do is photo copy the book(s) which is against the author as well as copyright infringement. This is illegal and against publisher’s policies. Sign up at IMAC,  get the best instruction and save.
