NRCSA Center: Spanish Institute - Oaxaca, Mexico  


About the NRCSA Center

The Institute is registered with the federal, state and municipal government, and offers courses to students who wish to study in an environment which will enhance their understanding of the Spanish language. The Institute's language immersion program offers the opportunity to experience Mexican culture and understand it through the acquisition of Spanish. The combination of the intensive Spanish language program and daily afternoon cultural activities enables students to immerse themselves in the language as well as in the rich Mexican culture.

Teachers are native speakers and university educated with years of teaching experience. They are more than prepared to present you with a class that will enhance your speaking, listening and general comprehension skills while introducing you to Mexican culture.


About Oaxaca

Oaxaca is an enchanting colonial town, where you will discover both a modern Mexico and ancient indigenous culture. The indigenous groups who once inhabited the nearby archaeological sites of Monte Albán, Mitla and Yagul continue to influence the language, lifestyle, and art of the area. The heart of the city of Oaxaca is the zócalo, or main square, which is surrounded by a mix of colonial architecture and an indigenous marketplace. The zócalo, just a short walk from the Institute, is host to concerts, parades, and sidewalk cafes that provide a comfortable setting for relaxing after class.

At the Institute, you can study Spanish while enjoying one of Oaxaca´s many charms: the climate. The abundant gardens invite you to study, converse, or relax among the plants and palm trees of the Institute's lush grounds. Absorb the midday sun or hide yourself in the shade of a palm frond as you bask in the year-round comfort of Oaxaca´s beautiful weather. Thanks to Oaxaca´s location in the state's central valley at 5,000 feet above sea level, the city enjoys pleasant weather during all seasons. The Institute's vibrant gardens are the perfect place to take advantage of the ideal climate found in Oaxaca.
