Centro de Idiomas — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Spanish Language School • (F)
The Centro de Idiomas (Language Center) offers six levels of general Spanish language classes — from beginner to advanced — all conversation-based, along with an extensive selection of Latin American Studies courses in art, writing, literature, history, politics, and economics. Associated with the University of Oaxaca Benito Juárez, the Center is housed off the main campus in a 1960s government-style school building five blocks south of the Zócalo Because of their affiliation with the University, courses taken here are good candidates for transfer towards university credit. Be sure to check with your university beforehand. Extracurricular activities and workshops include intercambio, Oaxacan folk art and cooking, and day trips. Homestays, posadas, and studio apartments are available.
