I had a great experience with IDEAL. My level of Spanish improved greatly during my time here through the classes, excursions, and interaction with host family. The teachers are very good, and the class sizes are perfect. The city is very accessible and has much to offer.
I received an excellent immersion into aspects of Mexican culture including cuisine, food, and customs. Now I have a better idea of the culture so to better serve Hispanics in my Diocese.

I very much enjoyed my 8 weeks experience with IDEAL. The school provided me with every opportunity to apply myself in learning the language. I like their emphasis on the exclusive use of Spanish in the classroom and at the house with my host family. The excursions were well led and also flexible. The teachers did well in applying themselves to my specific level and situation with regard to the language.
I am confident that I have a strong foundation in Spanish after having studied in IDEAL. I know I have the tools to move forward with my Spanish language learning.

Improved my Spanish skills and I’m empowered and able to really use it to talk to people. I couldn’t have imagined a better preparation for 1 year in Mexico. I got used to talking Spanish and Know more about the culture, the country and the wonderful people. Amazing!
¡Excelente! I really enjoyed my time at IDEAL. I liked the excursions and the cultural and historical learning the most. Carlos and Selene are excellent hosts. The teachers are very professional, accommodating, and adaptable to my learning needs.

My experience in IDEAL Spanish Mexico has been very good one. I have learned a lot and also I have been introduce in a lot of Mexican history and Mexican culture.
Mi experiencia en IDEAL fue excelente. Las excursiones a las piramides, la ciudad de México, y Taxco me dieron muchas oportunidades para aprender sobre la historia de México y para practicar la lengua con personas en la calle. No voy a olvidarme cuando me perdí cuando estuve subiendo hacia la estatua de Cristo. Necesité pedir ayuda 5 veces.
I definitely learned a lot of Spanish this summer. I knew very little Spanish before coming here and I can have a conversation in Spanish. Living with a family was also great, because you get to see what life is really like here.
Obtuve muchos beneficios de estudiar en Ideal, pero lo más importante es que aprendí mucho sobre la cultura y la vida cotidiana de los mexicanos.
I had the great experience as a beginner Spanish student. The teachers are well trained, organized and experienced. The school is both very professional and very relaxed. The material is presented in multiple ways to facilitate learning.
I had the great opportunity to learn Spanish from a native speakers. During my 4 weeks stay, I worked with two great teachers who had their own unique teaching style. It was great to have their different perspectives you learn Spanish with full immersion!!
Mi experiencia fue perfecto. Aprendí mucho. Todavía no he hablado perfecto pero puedo comunicarme.
It was a perfect experience to me!
Yo recomiendo Ideal a todos.
Tuve una buenísima experiencia en Ideal Escuela. Fue comprensiva, profesional y completa. Alicia es una maestra especial, con mucha paciencia y energía. ¡De cinco experiencias en escuelas de español, ésta es mi favorita! Más, Alicia es una guía impresionante.

I have taken Spanish classes in the States, but coming to Ideal for 3 weeks I learned a lot more than I ever did in the States. One-on-one classes with Señora Estela every day fro 5 hours was very beneficial. I liked the classes, but I also really liked going to the markets and cooking. I can’t wait to continue learning Spanish online with Ideal and hopefully returning soon!

I had a great time here in Oaxaca! The city is really pretty and filled with opportunities to do cool things. My host family was absolutely amazing, doing more than just cooking great meals. Rather, I felt like I was part of the family! I saw some incredible archaeological sites, which I understand not everyone is into, but I really enjoyed them (my favorite being Montealban)! Best part about Oaxaca was probably that it was really easy to make friends because I went to a few “intercambios” per week.
Fue un buen tiempo aquí en Ideal y en Oaxaca. Un beneficio grande era que tenía clase particular y que podía decir que quería aprender. Así es a veces muy duro, pero aprendes mucho más rápido y te ayuda mucho porque los maestros pueden corresponder a lo que tú necesitas. Sin embargo me gustarían más charlas y las clases en donde puedes hablar, así sabes más de país y de su cultura.
