I spent two weeks with Habla Hispana in the Fall of 2017 and stayed with a family. I absolutely loved the experience and did not want to leave!
1. The schedule of Mon-Fri from 9-1 with a couple of activities a week was perfect for me. It allowed for concentrated in class learning with time to enjoy San Miguel de Allende. Homework was not onerous.
2. I was in the intermediate class with Enrique as the class teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed his personality and teaching style. Not only did I re-learn, and learn, Spanish, I laughed a lot throughout the two weeks.
3. The other students at the school were terrific. Smart, interesting and a pleasure to be around.
4. I stayed with Marina and Ernesto. They are pros at having students stay with them. Their house is clean, nice and comfortable. Marina is a terrific cook. They are both warm, welcoming and engaging. It was the perfect place for me to stay.

I would not hesitate to recommend Habla Hispana to others and I anticipate going back one day myself.

Classes fro 9 am to 1 pm are just enough. Instructors at all levels are wonderful. Can't recommend highly enough

My husband and I enrolled in a month-long program at the beginner level. By the time we left, I was comfortable having basic conversations in almost any situation. The teachers are excellent, and the conversational approach is very helpful. This might be a difficult experience if a person has had no exposure to Spanish whatsoever because it is an immersion approach. But you will learn to speak, which is what I wanted to accomplish. Take advantage of the opportunity to reside with a Mexican family, as well as the additional cultural programs provided (i.e., tours, cooking, listening to Spanish music to improve your understanding).

Everything up until I started school was a little messy, and no communication from the school at all, unless I followed up. The registration process is confusing - the website clearly states that registration is on a first come, first served basis but the student is expected to send a $100 deposit without confirmation of availability from the school.
However, once I started at the school everything was fantastic. Emphasis is truly placed on learning through conversation and I felt my Spanish improved ten-fold during my two weeks at the school. I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson with my teacher Enrique and three fellow students. Lessons were really interesting, we spoke a lot, we laughed a lot and we learned a lot.
The school arranges extra curricular activities which were also a really good way to learn vocabulary and socialise with other students. In Spanish of course!
I also did the homestay and absolutely loved every minute of living with my homestay family. They welcomed me like one of their own, were very caring and also very helpful and mindful of helping us to practice our Spanish. For me this part of being a student at the school was just as important and brilliant an experience as the lessons themselves.
Everything was so good that I can only suggest that the school improves management of the registration process and also of the assessment of the students - there was a student in our class that clearly struggled with the level - she left after a few days, which was better for her and better for the rest of us, as we were able to progress more quickly.
But I would wholeheartedly recommend studying at Habla Hispana, it was a brilliant experience!

I could have gone here for longer than 2 weeks. The instructors are very knowledgeable, are very kind and have incredible patience. Grammar is of course important but then you have many hours to practice your speaking Spanish skills, in a safe environment and you get all the help you want.
