This is 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:

    For more than 39 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 have a university degree for their particular professional fields. Obviously, this is unlike most other institutions that have under-qualified Spanish speakers with no academic or professional formation imparting their lessons.


    Attending an institution that has national accreditation is of importance because the accrediting organization validates the school’s legitimacy.

However, English is also spoken just in case you need to go over your questions in a language you already know. Our school also has 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.

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.


    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 is our Spanish multimedia lab. Our lab includes state-of-the-art equipment and vanguard interactive Spanish learning software.

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.


    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.


    Why learn Spanish? The reasons are simple: professional, social, and/ or academic gain.

If you are simply looking to communicate better with the Spanish speaking community in your town or to retire to 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 a detailed course transcript and academic credits.


    ¨The City of Roses¨ or ¨The Pearl of the West¨as the locals call it, was founded by the Spanish in the year 1542 and is now second only to Mexico City in population, production, and commerce. However, it is second to none in charm, beauty, and the warmth of its people. Guadalajara´s innumerable colonial buildings, museums, theaters, churches, and parks all contribute to making the city truly rich in history and culture. Guadalajara is also located within a few hours drive to the world famous Mexican beach resort of Puerto Vallarta. The people of Guadalajara also enjoy one of the most temperate climates in the world; the year round temperature is about 75 degrees. All of this and much more have made Guadalajara the center of culture and comfort in western Mexico.
