Practice Your Spanish by Taking Excursions in and Around Oaxaca
Be Your Own Guide in Discovering the Best of Oaxaca
When you begin your studies with Oaxaca Spanish Magic, we will give you a comprehensive list of excursions, art and cultural explorations, and museum and site locations and hours of operation. We will provide you with information about the colorful and fascinating local mercados (markets), and make certain you are aware of the opportunities to enjoy current fiestas. If you wish, we will provide you with contacts for art lessons and cooking classes. If you want to visit the workshops of Oaxacan artisans, we will help you make the proper connections, or accompany you to the tallers (workshops and studios). You will be the one to decide when, how and which options fit your interests and time. We will help facilitate the choices you make, as you wish.
Excursions Guided By Oaxaca Spanish Magic
We have developed our own guided excursions and offer them ourselves or through an agency. They are designed to enrich your knowledge of Oaxacan history, art, culture and architecture in ways that will also increase your understanding and abilities in Spanish. The cost of these excursions is not included in the fees for classes. Costs depend on the activities and the type of transportation.
The guides speak Spanish, English, and French. They bring their extensive experience to each tour guest by focusing on her/his specific interests and language skills. Using a combination of the tour participant’s native language and Spanish as appropriate, our guides work to assure that both the content of the excursion and the interests of learning Spanish are honored.
The guides offer two types of tours: a walking tour of the city to become familair with various city sites, the second type is various tours outside the city limits.
Frequently during the week the students and the teachers make field trips and afterwards they will go out to eat a light supper together.
Each week we offer different tours:
Route 1: Monte Albán
Route 2: Mitla, Tule, Teotitlán del Valle, and Tlacolula
Route 3: San Bartolo Coyotepec, Santo Tomás Jalietza, and Ocotlán
Route 4: Hierve el Agua, Mitla, Tule, Teotitlán del Valle, and a Mezcal Factory
