Discover Mexico

Our “Discover Mexico” course combines an intensive Spanish course in the morning with an additional hour of study on three afternoons.

The afternoon classes are designed to give you an insight into the immensely rich Mexican culture and class activities are designed primarily to help develop your communicative skills.

Topics covered include:

  • Travelling in Mexico: If you’re planning to travel in Mexico, these sessions will provide plenty of ideas for your trip. You’ll discover that Mexico is an incredibly diverse country which has an enormous amount to offer.
  • Mexico today: Explore how Mexicans see themselves in a world that is constantly changing. Mexican society is reflected in their everyday way of living. Ask the experts: the Mexicans who can truly answer all your questions.
  • Mexico from the past: In Mexico, history is present in everyday life. Perhaps nothing better illustrates this than Mexico’s languages: the country is both the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world and also home to the largest number of Native American language speakers on the continent.
