Meztli would love to provide Spanish classes for you and even if you are traveling alone we offer small group classes every week of the year. Meztli also offers private lessons that can be adapted to your schedule and specific language needs. Can't decide which to take? Meztli features a semi-private option giving you group classes in the morning and private sessions right after. All of our classes are available for all Spanish levels, including very beginning to very advanced. Students select the number of weeks they'd like to study as well as their start date. Most students select a Monday start date although mid-week starts can also be easily arranged.
Meztli students acquire -- as opposed to study -- Spanish. We know that people learn their native language by observing, hearing, and copying the language of their environment, and not through memorizing grammar rules. This is the normal -- the natural -- process of language acquisition and this is the method we provide for Meztli students. We follow a proven method called the Natural Approach to guide our students to Spanish speaking success in the shortest amount of time possible. Peer GroupClasses: Meztli Spanish School offers small group classes from 9 am to 12 noon, Monday through Friday. Peer Group classes are where you will be placed with a few others of your same Spanish level as determined by the school's written and oral placement tool; it's never more than five students per teacher. Optional afternoon workshops at 5:00 pm continue the learning process with practice and vocabulary acquisition through enjoyable activities such as Mexican cooking class, salsa dancing, handicrafts, games and more. Your tuition rate covers all weekday activities mentioned here plus books and morning Yoga four days a week.
Semi-private Classes: if you require more than three daily hours of formal lessons, an extended schedule class can be arranged. These 'semi-private classes' offer a combination of the Peer Group class with private lessons. The private sessions can cover general Spanish or something particular to your interests or profession*.
Private Classes are available where just you and a teacher work together one-on-one. These may be available weekdays during the afternoon at the school campus. Saturday hours are also available.
*Note: For those wanting medical Spanish; legal Spanish; business Spanish; Spanish for educators, social workers, or yoga instructors (ask about other professions), please select our semi-private or private classes. Please request these specialized topics in advance so we can have the correct instructor reserved for your lessons.
Spanish for Travel Classes are available to those wanting to learn or improve their Spanish before embarking on an adventure in Latin America.
