I spent 4 weeks with Mr. Cerón and his family when I volunteered abroad and I couldn't have asked for a better program coordinator and host. He is highly active in his community and has a sincere interest in making an impact. Helpful, accommodating, and kind. I highly recommend all programs offered by him and his family.

In addition to offering the private day course, Institute of Modern Spanish is well-equipped to offer courses for all ages and ability levels from beginner to the most advanced.... from one day to several months. I recommend the family homestay option!

The teachers here are both highly skilled and highly patient; they worked with me at my level of Spanish, provided helpful supplemental materials, while the duration of the classes (typically at least three hours, split between grammar and conversational Spanish) was sufficient for real improvement over the course of a day for the duration of the chosen program. The school... More

I spend a little over two months here between January and March taking Spanish lessons at the school while also volunteering as an English teacher (at placements provided by Miguel) and I can easily say that it has been one of the best and most rewarding experiences I’ve had. Miguel was so helpful during the whole process and was always... More

The destination of Merida is an important, large, modern city of Spanish conquest and Mayan antiquity. There's more to see/do in a month, especially if time is invested in learning. I found the IMS to be first rate for Spanish language, hosting, and cultural/historical excursions throughout the Yucatan. Will go back to IMS.
