The Instituto Cultural Oaxaca – Spanish Language School in Oaxaca


Since 1984, the Instituto Cultural Oaxaca has developed integral programs to enable you to learn Spanish in Oaxaca in an enjoyable and interesting way.

Located on the grounds of a beautiful 19th century estate, our Spanish language school has proudly welcomed students from all over the world. Our school offers you personal and friendly service and the opportunity to learn Spanish in the stunning, colonial city of Oaxaca – a place where historic and present-day Mexico meet.

In addition to Spanish language classes, students have the opportunity to participate in cultural workshops and activities, in the Intercambio program with members of the community and in optional excursions to nearby places of interest. Students can enjoy their stay in the home of a Oaxacan family, in a posada with a private room and a shared kitchen, in a comfortable apartment, or in a hotel.

Spanish Language Programs

These special programs are designed for groups of university students, professionals, or business personnel who are interested in covering specific needs pertaining to the language or culture of Oaxaca and Mexico. Students have the opportunity to take formal language classes appropriate to their level, apply what is learned in group conversations, further develop comprehension and speaking abilities in cultural workshops, and synthesize the language and culture through experiences with an intercambio with members of the community.

The Instituto offers a Spanish Immersion course which includes a solid grammatical base and focus on communicative abilities, presented within a cultural context which allows the student to develop the four language skills: oral expression, written expression, auditory comprehension and reading comprehension. The Spanish Immersion course is taught in small groups, exclusively in Spanish, by native speakers with university degrees and years of teaching experience.
