Who are we?
Centro Mexicano was established in 1990 by Josefina Hernández, an experienced language teacher.
Her main objective was to create a language school that would serve as a multicultural and multilingual center for the community.
In addition to Spanish, Centro Mexicano offers English, French and Italian classes.
The flexible language programs and innovative activities, including the weekly Spanish and English conversation clubs, the children's programs, and the holiday celebrations, reflect the school's commitment to further the understanding of Mexican culture, and to bring together children and adults from different cultures.

SPANISH PROGRAM OF CENTRO MEXICANO
The activities and the instructional methodologies are carefully designed to help you express yourself at your comfortable level. The course covers every-day language needs and real-life situations. You do not learn about the language, you learn the language.
The Small Group Immersion Program is the most popular program because of its dynamics and its accessibility. The main objective of the Small Group Immersion Program is to develop verbal communication and critical listening skills.
The Private Immersion Program is the most flexible program. It features daily one-on-one instruction. Most students choose to study Monday through Friday, however the Private Immersion Program also allows students to design their own schedule; including weekends. Students also may choose to study the days that best meet their schedule. Weekend and daily Private Immersion Program courses are offered throughout the year.
Our program for Teens gives youth the opportunity to learn Spanish and to discover a new culture and its customs, while making friends and having fun with other young people.
Children learn Spanish through manual activities, songs and games in a friendly Mexican home environment, with a more structured course for older children.During these Spanish classes we will be speaking mostly Spanish and we will be playing games, doing manual activities, singing, dancing, cooking and baking.
Do you want to see the best of San Miguel de Allende, while having a true cultural experience and also developing your knowledge and that of your children? Our Spanish for Families program is designed so everyone in the family has a fantastic time on holiday! As every family is different, this program is custom designed. A sample program might have the whole family going on outings in the morning. In the afternoon, Mom and Dad could have Spanish classes at their level while the children have their own teacher and a specially designed Kids class. This class is bright, interesting and colorful and children study from a range of fun materials including videos, music and children’s books in Spanish. This class is adapted to the age range of your children but is suitable for children 6 through to 17, though probably not in the same class! If you have children under 6, they can be cared for during the afternoons by a professional nanny.
A special range of kid-friendly excursions can also be planned for the weekends, based on more traditional tourism options, but catering to the age and level of your children.
Volunteering in San Miguel, giving back to the community is one of the principles upon which the Centro Mexicano was founded.
At Centro Mexicano we strongly believe that language and culture go hand in hand, therefore our programs include both of these important aspects of learning.
Centro Mexicano seeks to provide all language speakers with a personalized learning experience, combining students language foundations with exposure to other rich cultures. Our education introduces students to a different cultural environment through activities and interactions that foster communicative and cognitive skill development. Our goal is to provide a motivating environment through challenging and responsive activities.

Why Consider Mexico?
Mexico is the United States' closest neighbor to the south, and at no other time in the long history of that relationship have the benefits of living and investing in Mexico been more apparent…and casier to enjoy. Not just for Americans, but for Canadians, Europeans…anyone looking for great weather, low prices, rich culture, and potential profits.
Think of it…moonlit fiestas, strolling mariachis, languid white-sand beaches, ancient colonial towns set in the rugged Sierras, even more ancient Mayan pyramids rising from the misty Yucatan jungle…
