Course descriptions and registration
You are first interviewed so that we learn more about your language background and learning goals. If you like our conversational teaching method, then you are assigned to a group of students with the same level as you and with a similar learning style.
There are 5 instructional courses that focus on sentence structure and phrases used in the local area in Baja. There are conversational courses in between levels to put into practice what you learn at each stage. Class frequency is twice a week and each class is 1 hour long. Within our Virtual Classroom you will access your homework and review what you learn each week in the classroom.
The entire program and course materials have been developed and designed by local language professionals. Learning tools inside the Virtual Classroom include audio exercises, downloadable worksheets, video lessons, Verb Cheat Sheets, etc.
The average number of students per class is typically between 5 and 8. We try to keep the groups size small to preserve the quality of your learning experience. Course tuition is $2,800 MXN pesos per student a month. We take cash, bank card payments or PayPal.
The best way to find out which level to join is to schedule a free-30 minute interview, but you can scroll down to view a brief description of each course content.
You can also start your own semi-private class (two or three students) and design your own class schedule. Read more about semi-private lessons here.
