The Spanish Institute of Puebla, a highly-regarded Spanish language school in Mexico, is offering individuals the opportunity to become bilingual by learning the Spanish language and its culture.
According to statistics from Pew Research Center, With more than 37 million speakers, Spanish is by far the most spoken non-English language in the U.S. today among people ages 5 and older. It is also one of the fastest-growing, with the number of speakers up 233% since 1980.
As Spanish use has grown, driven primarily by Hispanic immigration and population growth, it has become a part of many aspects of life in the U.S. For example, Spanish is spoken by more non-Hispanics in U.S. homes than any other non-English language and Spanish language television networks frequently beat their English counterparts in television ratings. With such a widespread across The United States, the Spanish Institute of Puebla believes more Americans should take up an interest in learning Spanish.
The highly-regarded institution has provided an intensive Spanish immersion program for more than 35 years for students, professionals (from all fields) and retirees; from over 72 countries. The institution runs a daily program of four hours of instruction in the morning coupled with two hours of individual afternoon conversation practice with a local guide. Classes start every three weeks.
The institution is best for:
- Adult students wanting a full-day immersion experience with a thorough grounding in conversation, comprehension, reading and writing.
- Students that are serious about improving or learning the Spanish language.
- Students preparing for a formal exam like DELE, ACTFL OPI, Praxis Spanish Exam or for a job requiring Spanish.
According to the Director of the school, Antonio Prado: ”Our functional approach to language acquisition emphasizes using Spanish in authentic and diverse circumstances. We have a “communicative” focus, concentrating on verbal interaction in Spanish. Our students learn from the outset to think and express themselves in Spanish as they participate in our exceptional International Award Winning Academic Educational Program and a wide variety of extra curriculum activities.”
The Spanish Institute is located in an Ex-Capuchin Convent from the 17th Century that is almost 400 years old and is only 4 blocks from the Zocalo (Main Plaza) in the Historic Center of Puebla. The city has everything; and when compared in size to other cities around the world, it is one of the safest. ”It is a great city to learn and study Spanish in Mexico because you are living the Culture as you walk through the city”, remarked Antonio Prado.
The Institution has attracted glowing reviews from its past students. ”The institute gave me the necessary skills to improve my understanding of Spanish. The interaction with the teachers, conversation instructors and students were helpful. I can speak Spanish more confidently. My host family was fantastic. My objective was to improve my Spanish to C1 level… the course gave me the necessary skills to do this.” Max Woods. Diplomat, London – United Kingdom.
