Welcome to Spanish in the City

There are many reasons to learn a new language. Getting to know new people, having new experiences, improving your professional profile or even connecting with the incredible aspects of other cultures. Spanish in the City is a Spanish school in Mexico City that takes all these reasons into account, and offers Spanish classes tailored to the needs of our students. We are a team of young Mexican linguists interested in the teaching of the Spanish language. We are excited to show you that language through our culture. Our Spanish classes take place in downtown cafes, interesting museums, enjoyable parks as well as important libraries in Mexico City. At Spanish in the City, we know that grammar is important but it’s even more important to learn Spanish through interaction and immersion in real places with real people. Imagine learning Spanish, not through a boring, traditional classroom style, but by exploring one of the largest cities in the world: Mexico City!

About Us

Learning Spanish can be a fun adventure with the right type of teaching. Our Spanish teachers know all the grammatical skills so that you can achieve mastery of the language. In Spanish in the City, you decide how you want to learn. Our Spanish classes can focus on mastering grammar, but they can also cover basic aspects of interaction in an immersive environment. Both ways of learning are equally valid and we can guarantee that in each class you are going to enjoy learning Spanish with fellow students from all over the world or in private classes designed for more rapid learning. At the same time, you will be able to learn Spanish in the most iconic places in Mexico City: the Historic Center, Chapultepec Park and the stunning neighborhoods, representative of the culture of the city such as Roma, Polanco, Condesa and Coyoacan.

Our group Spanish lessons are from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 1 pm. At the beginning of each week, we start groups of new students in the heart of Condesa, a neighborhood famous for its gastronomy, security, beauty and peacefulness. Many visitors decide to stay in this district for just these reasons. The other days of the week we give Spanish classes in different places around Mexico City, with variable schedules, published every Monday. All of our teachers have extensive experience teaching Spanish and our courses include all resource materials and entrance fees to historical sites.

Methodology

In our Spanish School, we use a teaching method focused on interacting with life in Mexico City. Each day we go to a new, attractive and safe place around the city. At the start of the week, your teacher will give you the itinerary of the places we will be visiting.

Logistics

We want to take full advantage of the time spent in our classes, and for that reason we divide each lesson into two parts. The first part focuses on teaching Spanish grammar in cafes and in comfortable locations. The second part is about practicing what you’ve learned in more interactive spaces such as parks, museums or historical sites. In this way, the student has the opportunity to learn, practice and enjoy learning both Spanish and the culture of Mexico City.

Times

Our classes start at 9 am and finish at 1 pm. Every Monday we admit new students, and for them the meeting time will be at 8:30 am in Condesa. At this time we will welcome you to our school, introduce you to your teacher and discuss the itinerary for the week.

Places

The spaces we visit during the lessons include local coffee shops, restaurants, bookshop cafes, cafe chains (Starbucks, Cielito Querido,Tierra Garat), parks, museums, libraries and other historical sites. We encourage our students to support local businesses by eating or drinking there.

Didactic Materials

All the didactic materials we offer are written by us and are free of charge for our students. The materials consist of handouts, worksheets and audiovisuals.

Groups

Because our priority is to maintain personalized teaching, each group consists of between 2 and 5 people. In this way the teacher can take care of the individual needs of each student.

Activities

In Spanish in the City we are convinced that learning Spanish is better when it’s fun! That’s why we organize fun activities on some days of the week as a change of pace and to practice what we’ve learned. Our activities encourage students from different levels to interact with each other in a fun and welcoming setting.

We offer the following group class activities:

Quiz

Demonstrate your competitive spirit and answer questions in Spanish. Which team will win?

Rally

Who doesn’t like competitions? In this timed race it doesn’t matter what level your Spanish is, it’s all about using all the Spanish you’ve learned that week.

Mexican Games

Mexico City has a great depth of culture which you can also get to know through traditional games. Practice your Spanish with “Lottery”, “Spinning Top” and “Snakes and Ladders” among others.

Gastronomy

Mexican food is internationally famous. Sometimes we like to visit a local restaurant so our students can try some of the best Mexican dishes in the city. Eating out is optional and is not included in the cost of the class.

Museum Visits

Mexico City is one of the cities with the most museums in the world. Our Spanish lessons do include the entry fee to some iconic museums.

Historic Sites

Sometimes we find history in plain sight. One of the most exciting parts of our classes can be visiting interesting historical sites.

FAQs

How do I reserve a place in a course in Spanish in the City?

You can send us a message through the email in our contact section and we will respond with more information about our Spanish lessons. It’s important for us to personalize your group experience to the maximum, so we will send you a short test for us to determine your level of Spanish proficiency. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this test or if you’ve never taken any Spanish classes before, it isn’t a problem. You can tell us what type of course you want to take and for how long. At the same time, we will send you the secure payment information through PayPal to confirm your place.

What do I have to do on the first day?

Once you have reserved your Spanish classes, we will send you details of the meeting point for all students. Every Monday we meet at 8:30 am in Condesa in Mexico City. If it’s your first time with us, we will need a few minutes to determine what level of class best suits you. We supply you with all the relevant material for your learning. You only need to bring your enthusiasm to learn Spanish!

Where will my classes be?

Our Spanish classes are designed for you to learn as quickly as possible. As a result, it’s important to us that our students get involved in real life situations, in cafes, museums, parks, libraries and tourist attractions. Each week, our students take their Spanish lessons in different places, getting to know Mexico City at the same time as learning Spanish.

What experience do our teachers have?

All of our Spanish teachers have a specialization in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. In addition, they have considerable experience in giving Spanish classes. All are native to Mexico City and know it in depth. We like to be professional because our principal aim is to improve your level of Spanish, but in addition, it’s important to us that you enjoy the experience of walking around some of the most iconic places in Mexico City.

How big can the groups be?

In Spanish and the City, we believe deeply that personalized learning offers incredible results. For this reason, we are committed to maintaining small groups, in which the Spanish teacher can pay more attention to the needs of each of their students. The groups operate with a minimum of two students and with a maximum of five. A small group allows us to concentrate on the design of our Spanish lessons, and this improves the quality of learning.

What is the difference between a group class and a private class?

A group Spanish lesson is planned so that everyone can learn. We seek to interact with different teachers and students of all nationalities, following a learning path which benefits all. Our group classes aim to be dynamic and held in public spaces. On the other hand, in a private class, the student decides the place and time of the class in combination with the availability of the Spanish teacher. The content of the lessons is completely personalized and guarantees a faster pace of learning.

Where is a good place to stay in Mexico City?

Many of our students stay in Condesa, Roma or Polanco, which are the safest neighborhoods in Mexico City. Although our classes can be held in different places, such as Coyoacan or the Historic Center of Mexico City (or even some more exotic places if requested by a particular group), our teachers know every detail of the city and can give individual recommendations specific to the places you want to visit.
