Immerse Yourself!


Guanajuato is a great place to study Spanish. Unlike many other popular tourist towns in Mexico, Spanish remains the dominant language spoken to foreigners. Being immersed in the language, culture, and everyday life of Mexico will expand your vocabulary and provide ample opportunities to practice.

—And practice is how it happens.

Guanajuato is known for its Spanish immersion programs. Schools and tutors are abundant and affordable, with many schools enrolling students weekly. The curriculums are designed to make it easy for tourists, retirees, executives…really anyone looking to learn Spanish. Language classes are not only a great way to learn Spanish, but they can be a fun way to explore Mexico, make friends, and experience the Guanajuato community.

If you have a semester or need class credit, the University of Guanajuato offers a semester-long program for foreigners. Courses include history, conversation, grammer, and salsa dancing. Instructions all in Spanish – of course. 

Option 3

Private Tutoring

Supplement your studies with private tutoring. This option is great for those who want privacy, one-on-one attention, exam preparation, or focus on a specific area of expertise (eg law, medicine). The Spanish Experience Center of Guanajuato can help you organize a private tutor.

Option 4


The University of Guanajuato (UG) prepares Mexican students to teach Spanish as a second language. During the University’s school year, these aspiring instructors practice teaching at the University’s language lab, CAADI. CAADI is a great way to practice Spanish. It is open to the public (for a nominal fee) and housed at the UG School of Idiomas.

Bonus! It is also super convenient to Casa Observatorio. Enter through the UG School of Idiomas by the alley to the house.

Option 5


Find a friend! Guanajuato is full of native Spanish speakers eager to practice their English. Meet for a coffee or tequila at one of the many cafes and enjoy the conversation! Who knows, you might make a life-long friend or two. The Spanish Experience Center of Guanajuato can help you organize an intercambio.
