Do you want to learn Spanish? There’s no better place to do it than right here in Oaxaca!
Check out our guide to the city’s best Spanish schools and find the one that’s right for you.
Amigos del Sol
Amigos del Sol is a small Spanish language school in the suburb of San Felipe here in Oaxaca, Mexico. We’ve been teaching Spanish since 1998, and our professional teachers are all native speakers and university trained. They have many years of experience teaching Spanish at all levels, and they have been at the school for more than 18 years.
Here at Amigos del Sol, our classes are small, with students all at the same Spanish level. This gives each student more opportunities to speak and learn. We have a number of courses available.
Our programs focus on conversation related to topics that students wish to learn or improve. There is also grammar practice when needed. Travellers with no Spanish can focus on daily life situations or on anything they wish. Students who have already studied Spanish can send us information about their Spanish Level and in what areas they would like to improve.
You are welcome to start any day (Monday through Sunday). We’ll be very happy to follow our program or to focus on your specific needs. The main idea of having a flexible schedule is to allow you to choose the number of hours per day, days per week, and the total number of weeks. This way, you can enjoy Oaxaca and learn Spanish too.
SPANISH FOR EVERYONE: this program is for students at all Spanish levels. We focus on your needs to help you achieve your goals.
SPANISH FOR TOTAL IMMERSION: students learn Spanish at the school and stay with a Mexican family to learn about the culture and to practice as much as possible.
SPANISH FOR TOTAL IMMERSION + ONLINE LESSONS: students take online lessons prior to their visit, stay with a Mexican family, learn Spanish at the school, and then continue learning online afterwards.
SPANISH FOR UNIVERSITIES AND GROUPS: we offer tailor-made courses for all of you.
ONLINE LESSONS: available all year round.
We also offer extra activities such as intercambios (language exchanges), tours, and cooking classes.
We are involved in the local community and offer English lessons through our special program for adult learners and children.

Becari Conzatti is a medium size, dynamic Spanish language school geared towards the highest quality academic teaching and active learning services. More than 40% of our students join through personal recommendations of former clients.
We host students of every age, from 4-year-old kids to seniors as well as groups from universities in the USA and Europe. The average age of our students is around 35 years and the nationality mix is roughly 70% Americans, 15% Europeans, 5% Asian and 10% others.
We offer programs of 3, 4 or 6 hours of Spanish lessons, or alternatively 4 hours tuition plus a 2 hour workshop, every day from Monday to Friday. Most of our students prefer the 9am to 1pm program and then organise their afternoon activities as the week advances. This can be done through Becari or individually. Intermediate and advanced students can engage in historical, cultural, political and artistic activities plus a range of other topics.
We also offer a Volunteer Program which consists of 4 hours of volunteering and 3 or 4 hours of Spanish lessons. You can decide if you want to have your classes privately or in a group. You will also get a 10% discount on the regular tuition prices. The Volunteer Program enrolment fee goes directly to the organisation as a donation from you. Your classes will be in the afternoon from 3pm until either 6pm or 7pm, depending on your program . Your volunteer work will be from 9am – 1pm every day except Saturdays.
Our Salsa Dance Program consists of two hours of Spanish lessons and two hours of professional salsa dance through Salsa Retreat.
A homestay with a carefully selected Mexican family will cost $140USD per week including breakfast. Your host family will pick you up at the Oaxaca International Airport upon arrival. If you prefer to stay in a hotel or apartment we can recommend two hotels which are located only a 5-10 minute walk from Becari. There is also a nice bed and breakfast just across the street from our school which costs $18USD per night.
Included in the standard tuition price is a series of ‘Cultural Wednesday’ lectures with local personalities. These lectures are 1 – 2 hours long and include speakers such as women from local indigenous communities who will discuss their way of living, yoga teachers, painters, alebrije makers. We also screen Mexican movies on Friday afternoons.

Becari M. Bravo
Learn Spanish and live the Culture with us.
We are very happy to introduce you to Becari M. Bravo. We are located a few blocks north of the zócalo (main square) in a three hundred-year-old building. We have been teaching Spanish as a Second Language for more than 20 years and specialize in offering many different options for any person interested in learning our beautiful Spanish language. We are a medium-size school with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that prides itself on careful and sustained attention to each student regardless of his or her level of proficiency. Our staff of qualified teachers have ample experience in the field of Spanish as a second language.
At Becari M. Bravo we offer different programs according to the student’s individual needs, making it possible to advance more rapidly in one’s knowledge and practice of Spanish. We emphasize oral communication and grammar lessons tailored to the student’s level of Spanish.
We welcome every new situation we encounter in the wide range of students who come to our school.
Our regular program consists of three-hour classes in small groups, five days a week, divided into two sessions with a different teacher for each session. The intensive program includes four-hour classes, divided evenly between two different teachers. The super intensive program of six hours daily is also divided between two or three teachers.
Special Programs and packages:
1.- One on one lessons
2.-Spanish for volunteers
3.- Health professionals (social workers)
4.- Medical Spanish
5.- Spanish for children
6.- Zapotec lessons
7.- Keeping mi español (2 to 4 hours of lessons per week, special package for retired students)
8.- Extend your Spanish via Skype
Becari M. Bravo is flexible in its scheduling, and a student can enter for as little as one day or for a lengthy, indefinite period of study.
Our Mexican teachers are all certified experts in teaching the essential skills of writing, reading, speaking and listening to our beautiful language.
Becari M. Bravo is convinced that our students can really master Spanish if they understand the cultural and historical aspects of Latin America and Mexico. We, therefore, provide additional opportunities to extend their learning by living with a Mexican host family and/or learning about Pre-Hispanic culture, Latin America/Mexico history, literature and politics. This could be through extra activities like special workshops that include classes in salsa dancing, Mexican cooking, weaving lessons and ceramics as well as art lectures and films.
We want to offer our students an unforgettable stay in Oaxaca!

The Spanish Immersion School is committed to teaching you Spanish and sharing with you the wonderful diversity of Oaxaca. We do this by holding classes in important cultural settings around the city and by hosting students on amazing excursions to points of interest all around the valley.

This gives you an opportunity to work comfortably in the areas of Spanish language where you have most interest. It also enables our teachers to focus on your individual aims and interests, helping you improve your Spanish in a way that’s relevant to you.
Our students can decide how many hours of instruction they want per week, and when the course begins and ends.
