Xcanda Spanish Institute   (Oaxaca)
 
We at Xcanda take pride in the fact that we are the only Spanish school in Oaxaca that has implemented successfully a high energy and dynamic way to learn Spanish. We stimulate the learning process by keeping our students active and moving as they progress through the course. With games, competitions and fun, our students absorb the Spanish language faster and acquire a level of fluidity that hasn't been possible with traditional methods. This teaching method combined with the full immersion approach, assures the awakening of the students maximum learning potential.
 
We have a Regular course with 15 hours a week of classes which is good for the vacationer looking to increase his or her Spanish level. Then we have an Intensive course with 25 hours a week which is good for high school and University students who need to learn spanish as part of their schools curriculum. And we also offer our Executive course which consists of 40 hours a week of classes. This, of course, is for the more serious and goal oriented student who is either looking to succeed in the business world by becoming bilingual and bicultural or simply is intent on improving him or herself as a human being by acquiring more diverse communication skills.
 
Which ever the reason, Xcanda is by far the best choice, not only in Oaxaca, but in Mexico.
