Comparison to others programs:
With a great need worldwide to speak Spanish and a growing Hispanic population in the US, there is a growing demand for individuals that can speak Spanish. Many individuals are falling for language learning gimmicks of the "Learn Spanish in a week" variety.
Students that attend these schools often find themselves learning little or nothing because it takes most individuals about three (3) days to become comfortable and adjust to the new environment… you can´t start learning until you are comfortable; and then by the 5th or 6th day, of their stay, they start thinking about going back home. Total about one or two days of productive learning.
Other schools that have month long programs accept students every Monday. This practice has a negative effect on the students attending these schools. Every Monday is new student introduction day; teachers have to change their classes to accommodate the new students. Most of the time, much of the vocabulary, structures and grammar that the students have seen will have to be repeated. Total about three days of instruction per week.
Also be careful of programs that have one price for the classes and then start adding host family, registration fee, books, excursions, materials, meals, computer use, cost of receiving and sending mails, WiFi, etc. Although the initial price might be enticing in the long run you will pay much more. And many only offer 15 or 20 hours of instruction per week. Our program is basically "All Inclusive" except for your round trip air fare.
The Spanish Institute of Puebla offers 30 hours a week of instruction; more than any other well know Spanish Language School.
