GLI has 4 air-conditioned classrooms, a unique atmosphere to study Spanish. Classes have a limited number of pupils (Max. 8) and pleasant classrooms, where students can work in a relaxed setting. All our teachers are highly experienced in teaching Spanish as a second language and our materials are designed to cover your learning needs. The school offers a monthly social and leisure calendar to invite students to practice their Spanish skills while visiting popular points of interest in and around the cities. We work in small groups and provide personalized attention to each student. Classes are divided into a 3-hour session focused on grammar and vocabulary, and 2 hours focused on conversational practice. Thanks to the small size of our classes, all students get to actively participate in classes and can make fast progress. We also include some hands-on classes, where we go out and practice in real-life situations. Study Spanish with us, join our activities, and keep practicing Spanish as you discover the most beautiful beach city in México, Puerto Vallarta. Learn Spanish in the morning and enjoy the beach in the afternoon, then take part in our extracurricular activities and practice Spanish while surfing, dancing, sky diving, enjoying the best cuisine in the world or simply, exploring the area. Or, learn Spanish in the morning and explore the museums, art galleries, music and cinema festivals, great restaurants of one of the most interesting colonial cities of México, Morelia. Classes start every Monday for those who have some previous knowledge of Spanish, or on specific dates once every month, check our calendar for starting dates.
Our school is located in heavenly Puerto Vallarta, on the Mexican Pacific coast. We are proud to be a member of the Education Ministry of Jalisco State and the only certified Spanish immersion school in Puerto Vallarta. Our teachers all have a bachelor in arts in teaching Spanish as a second language, are all native Mexican and together gather more than 30 years of experience. By offering comprehensive Spanish classes for students of all levels enhanced with an introduction to Mexican culture and traditions, the school offers a true Spanish immersion experience. Our programs include standard and intensive programs for adults, executive program, teacher training, private classes, children and teenagers programs, and preparation to the DELE Exam (Diploma de Español Como Lengua Extranjera -Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language, from Instituto Cervantes). We strongly believe that full immersion is the key to success, and we really enjoy spending time with our students outside of business hours: thanks to this genuine family-atmosphere, most students become good friends! Extracurricular activities such as cooking classes specializing in teaching traditional Mexican dishes, slang Spanish classes, tours of the city and numerous social events, offer our students more than just language classes, they offer the true Spanish experience. With a 60% rate of returning students, we feel very blessed to be able and witness how they progress and get more confident in their ability to express themselves in Spanish, not only day after day, but year after year as well! The building is located in an old hacienda with an inside fountain in the patio, just 2 blocks from the beach and a couple steps away from Vallarta's famous "Malecón" (boardwalk). It provides 7 fully air-conditioned classrooms, free wifi, state of the art learning material showers and a fully equipped kitchen. Passionate about the Mexican culture, we try to involve our students in real Mexican life, providing with a carefully selected Mexican host family. Contact us for more information!
