Glen Margaret, NS, Canada.
This program is excellent for persons who are serious about learning Spanish. I love that I can speak and understand Spanish now.
County Clare, Ireland.
I believe the goal of speaking Spanish fluently is being achieved through the Institute. Partly because of grammar training, but mostly through the conversation class in which I can apply what is learned in class and be encouraged and corrected by the conversation instructors.
San Diego, CA, USA.
One of the best Spanish teachers so far. One of the things I liked the most were the "conversation" classes outside of the classroom.
Sooke, BC, Canada.
The program fit in well with my schedule. My professor was attentive, responded well to my questions and other expressed needs.
Intensive, interesting and sometimes a challenge to have more words to learn in the evening. A good possibility to train your adaptability.
Elena P. Weyermann
I gained confidence in speaking, after two months I am able to communicate in Spanish.
I came to the program speaking zero Spanish. Four weeks later, I can have conversations with taxi drivers (who speak almost as fast as they drive) and anyone I meet in the street. I was watching a telenovela the other night and I could understand the storyline. This Institute is fantastic and I couldn't rate it more highly.
This was my third time at the Institute and the quality of the program has been consistently outstanding. I had a great improvement in grammar, listening and conversation.

After one month in Mexico, I feel like I have a better grasp on Spanish itself and a deeper understanding of Mexico.

This course transformed my Spanish to a new level… Thank you very much all the staff for making it a very productive two weeks.
The duration of my classes was short, 2 weeks, but the tutor really impressed me. I had a great teacher and amazing person, really intelligent and always willing to give more.
Smokey Lake, AB, Canada.
In my first 4 weeks of the program I learned to speak Spanish to be able to communicate with my host family. When I came here I couldn't speak any Spanish. The atmosphere in my class was wonderful and in the afternoons I learned a lot about Mexico.
I thought the program would be good, but it really exceeded my expectations. I'd highly recommend the Spanish Institute to anyone. I really improved my Spanish.

Llangados Carmarthenshire, Wales.
Despite the books that suggest you can "learn Spanish in 7 days", language learning is a gradual process. However, the focus on conversing and the excellent support provided by the school has meant that I genuinely feel more confident speaking the language in 2 weeks.
Dr. Karen Stevenson
Lancaster, United Kingdom.
I only attended the morning classes which have been extremely good. My teacher has been very good at dividing the classes in reading, conversation, topics related to Mexico, and life in general. I really enjoyed it as well as I learned a lot.
Very personal. It was great that we could have 5 days of class and also practice in the weekends. I learned a lot. Now I just have to practice.

I've learned a lot and had some great experiences. The program provides an excellent mix of learning and sight-seeing. I'd definitely consider returning and would recommend it to anyone.
The idea of living in Mexico for four weeks was a little intimidating before I arrived. The structure of the Institute made everything a breeze. I concentrated on Spanish and learned a ton. I know I am not a fast learner of languages, and now I can easily communicate in Spanish.

I have had a wonderful experience with the Institute. The instructors are very friendly and helpful. The course and excursions extremely well organized. I would definitely recommend SIP in the future.
