    We’re a Vancouver-based organization. Our founder has a good track record of amazing Spanish immersion programs in Oaxaca. Over the last 10 years, she has seen people being transformed by these language/culture programs. 

    If that’s your preference, we can do so. However, the accommodations offered with host families offer you the opportunity for human and cultural interaction.

    They may speak a little English. However, we encourage them to not speak English with you, so you can practice as much as possible.

    We accommodate one student per host family as this increases your opportunity to speak Spanish. If you are traveling with your spouse, we will place you in the same family.

    Our families are screened for: criminal and/or questionable social activity, general ¨likeability¨and friendliness, availability of the family during your time with them, and proximity to downtown Oaxaca.

    Yes. Host families will try to adapt as much as possible to your specific food requirements.

    We highly recommend you to use filtered/bottled water as tap water may be contaminated

    Your safety is our priority. Oaxaca is one of the safest states in Mexico. Oaxaca is hand-picked because of our familiarity and close ties with the city. We make sure you have the most comfortable and safe experience possible.

    On average, there are 5-6 hours each day of planned activities such as lessons, workshops and cultural engagement activities. You will always have the free time to explore the city on your own or rest if you prefer.
