Learn Spanish in Playa del Carmen
The Playa del Carmen Spanish language school is at it’s busiest from mid December through to Easter (with European language students looking to escape the winter blues) and again in the July/August summer season. We recommend that students books as early as possible for these periods!
Remember that the Mexico coast can suffer from hurricanes, generally speaking the riskest period is from August through to October, but the season runs from June/November. Most of the time nothing at all will happen, but if one does occur – a lot of rain can fall.

The Playa del Carmen Spanish language school is at it’s busiest from mid December through to Easter (especially with European language students looking to escape the winter blues and combine their Spanish language studies with plenty of sunshine and a golden beach) and again in the July/August summer season. We recommend that students books as early as possible for these periods, last minute bookings are possible, but not guaranteed!

The Spanish language school has an internet room which is used regularly for Spanish classes. A typical Internet activity will involve searching Spanish websites for information and students work together (not with one computer each) so that they constantly have to talk in Spanish, about the materials they find, as well as the task itself.
When the internet room is not being used for teaching, it is made available for student use. It is possible to reserve a computer for 30 minutes a day but, if no one else wants it, students can in fact use it for as long as they wish. In addition there are several internet cafés near the school, which offer internet access for as little as 2 US$ per hour. So it is always easy to stay in touch with everyone at home.
All students are encouraged to make the most of their time in Playa del Carmen by participating in guided excursions and activities offered by the Spanish Language School. These social activities enable students to get to know Playa del Carmen, the people and the surroundings.
