Whether you are a full time student, a professional person, or someone that is interested in studying Spanish while on vacation here in Mexico, we have made learning Spanish in Mexico very affordable. The total tuition investment charged by Spanish language schools in Mexico does vary considerably. Considering the quality of the instruction and the type of facilities we offer to our students, IMAC Spanish Language Programs is one of the most competitively priced Spanish language immersion programs worldwide.



The following is a schedule for students who choose to study our most intensive language program currently available.

DAILY ACTIVITIES

9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Students are involved in direct Spanish language instruction with a native instructor. All areas of Spanish language fluency are developed: reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension.

11:00 AM to 11:15 AM
Students go to break.

11:15 AM to 1:00 PM
Intensive Spanish classes with your instructor resume.

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
You will have the opportunity to participate in a language and cultural exchange group, which will allow you to practice your new language skills with native Spanish speaking students in a relaxed, informal setting, therefore adding an additional hour of instruction per day, thus making it 5 hours per day. This class is supervised by an instructor every afternoon, and is free of charge.

In addition to the classroom instruction, you have unlimited access to our Multimedia Lab (email, Internet, interactive Spanish programs) free of charge. You will be encouraged to maximize your learning by attending our Multimedia Lab an additional hour daily, though you may use the Multimedia Lab for as long as you wish during school hours. This is a service which will allow you to reinforce the skill areas of pronunciation, listening, reading, and writing. This brings your number of hours to 30 weekly (25 hours of teacher instruction and a recommended minimum 5 hours of free Multimedia lab time).


AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS

You will be given the opportunity to participate in a variety of cultural activities both here in the historical downtown area as well as around the city of Guadalajara. For more information see:

Activities during your course.

  • 1 pm Lectures and Focused conversation with Mexican students (Language and Cultural exchange group).
  • Plus Social activities.
  • Plus Salsa lessons.
  • Plus Rock band club.
  • Plus Guitar lessons.
  • Current Cultural Events page.

NOTE: Please keep in mind; schools that offer what seems like many class hours per day. A great price may be taking into account all the time when there is a teacher present in an activity which may not always involve language learning. The class hours that we offer, ALL involve formal learning under a structured program with students at your same group level and your official teacher, PLUS the varied activities, where an instructor is also present and our students enjoy at no cost. Want to save money? Check the total prices at your school. Is a daily and structured conversation class free? What about a media lab with the latest and greatest software aids? Does your school provide cultural exchanges and movies free of charge? Some schools do not charge for registration, but in the end, you pay more in higher prices, airport pick up, homestay placement and changing fees, rescheduling fees, etc. Also, is your school accredited and socially responsible?

You are strongly encouraged to maximize your learning by attending our Multimedia Lab an additional hour daily, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. No extra fee.

As an added advantage, you will pay your homestay family directly. Unlike many other institutions, we charge no homestay placement fee or hidden commissions for this service. Please bring the necessary U.S. dollars to exchange for Mexican pesos.

Since our courses are designed to be taken by one week programs, you may attend our Spanish classes from as little as one week, to as long as desired. After completing your initial instruction, it will be possible for you to continue in the program by just paying the proper tuition fee.

Tips to save money!

Rent Your Textbook. Save Money!!

Here are a couple of reasons why renting a book is a great savings idea:

  • If you decide not to pursue your Spanish language classes, you could return it.
  • You do not have to spend extra money when you advance to the next level by purchasing new books. You may rent the next books out with the same deposit when returning the previous book.
  • More importantly, certain schools boast that they do not charge for learning material (books). However, what some of them do is photo copy the book(s) which cheats the author, as well as being copyright infringement. This is illegal and against publisher’s policies. Sign up at IMAC. Get the best instruction and save money.

Now you can save a bundle by simply putting down a deposit of the textbook’s cost, $35.00 USD.

When you return the book- in mint condition- (not written, torn or worn out) you will get back $30.00 USD. This means only a $5.00 USD cost for the use of original materials for as long as your course lasts. If you decide to keep the book, then the deposit will cover the cost of the book.
