Oaxaca Spanish Language Schools Oaxaca Mexico, Cultural Immersion
Oaxaca's language schools teach amid a bounty of cultural excellence that could be Mexico's best kept cultural secret. Located in the middle of South Central Mexico between two mountain ranges, Oaxaca is home to many indigenous people who are multi lingual, speaking Spanish and still using 17 or so indigenous languages in the mountains and valleys. They do not, however, use English and this makes studying language at one of Oaxaca's language schools a perfect environment for those wanting to study language in total immersion.
Oaxaca Spanish Language Schools in Oaxaca Mexico include Cultural Immersion. Lessons include cooking, dancing and weekend hiking, biking, visits to artisans, art museums, and tours of pre-Hispanic ruins.
Language schools in Oaxaca number at least eight, both large and small, teaching Spanish in the city. Many private instructors teach the finer subtleties to those honing their language skills. ($10-11. USD Per Hour) This article will discuss the established schools and list a few of the private teachers along with a side bar of events to plan for while visiting Oaxaca City.

Instituto de Communicacion y Cultura: Known as the ICC, the institute was founded in 1986 and is located within a fine old building on a pedestrian only street. The ICC is a well respected school and offers 3- hour programs with many electives and helps with home stays with a local family that would include meals.
The ICC also offer some unique opportunities that would have a student working with the local people in some interesting volunteer slots helping local groups who aid families and children. This immersion also gives the language student a chance to practice conversation while doing some good for those less fortunate.

Grammar in the morning, conversation at noon, weaving, cooking, or Salsa dancing in the afternoon, and intercambio, a cultural interchange, in the late afternoon might leave your head spinning but the total immersion moves you quickly into the culture and rhythm of Oaxacan Spanish.
Four hundred sixty USD a month including the electives and help finding housing with a local family that will include family meals makes this one of the most complete program in Oaxaca.
They also include lectures by visiting scholars, films, and field trips for various weekend events.
