Oaxaca Spanish Magic did the trick for me, quickly catapulting my Spanish to the next level. The teachers really seem to care, not only about helping students learn, but also about making sure they have a memorable stay in Oaxaca. My wonderful teachers, Lili and Jessica, used many creative methods to get us to speak and apply the lessons we learned to real life. Of course, like at any other school, you have to put in the work to learn a new language -- and it's hard work! But the school does all it can to help. Aside from classes and private lessons, for example, Oaxaca Spanish Magic also arranges complimentary conversational exchanges with native Spanish speakers learning English. Between the classes and conversational sessions, I couldn't believe how comfortable I felt speaking after only a few weeks. The director, Flor, and her brother, Miguel, also went way above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and to improve our Spanish. Flor opened up her home and heart, holding movie nights and other gatherings (complete with mezcal!), helping us with visas and taking us on unforgettable excursions. For Dia de los Muertos, for example, Flor and Miguel invited us students to visit their family's graves with them. And both also freely dispensed valuable advice to help make our stay more comfortable. All in all, I can't recommend this school strongly enough. What a warm and friendly place to learn Spanish!
