Vive el español

Vive El Español is our immersive Spanish learning experience based in Oaxaca, Mexico, which offers a unique ‘Build-Your-Own’ program of Spanish lessons, accommodation, artisan workshops and cultural activities. Choose a program of 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks.

Your typical day could look like this:

11 AM -12 PM

Take free transport to the Spanish House hub to the city center. So you can back home to eat.

5 PM - 7 PM

Meet in the city center to start your free walking tour.

All participants receive 15 hours a week (3 hours a day, Monday-Friday) of Spanish tutoring in small groups of maximum 12 people. The program divides participants into four groups: Beginners (A1) Basic (A2-B1) Intermediate (B1-B2) and Advanced (C1-C2), according to The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In every class, you will learn and practice listening, speaking, reading and writing. Spanish House will provide all learning materials. The best part of the program is that the content learnt in class will be put to practical use when you take part in our variety of workshops, tours and cultural experiences. 

Classes take place from 8-11am or 12-3pm depending on your language level and the length of course you choose. Decide between 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks of classes. After signing up to your immersive program we will send you a short language level test to help us place you in the class that best fits your needs.


All Spanish classes take place at the Escuela Libre De Arte y Diseño (Calle Fresnito 129, 68130 Oaxaca de Juárez) which is a 15 minute drive from the city center. We offer a free transport service from a pick-up point in the center (El Llano park) every day so that you can travel to classes with ease.


Vive El Español provides connections between participants and local accommodation hosts. You will stay with a local host and have the opportunity to share part of their day-to-day life: eating, going out, talking and learning about local culture. Participants get their own bedroom and private space, as well as one meal a day provided by the host.  All accommodation is in a safe location with local transport links. Participants are also welcome to organize their own private accommodation if they prefer.
