Spanish Language Classes in Oaxaca Can Be Fun!
The grammar that we teach is normally focused and applied in
conversation because we know that students want to be able to talk and
understand what they hear. It is far easier to understand grammar if
there is a context in which you learn it. The teachers at Oaxaca
Spanish Magic are professionals. They are friendly and patient and have
9 to 15 years of experience. They understand the needs of students and
use a variety of methods and techniques to help students learn Spanish.
There are games, films, posters and music all of which help students
discover the magic of learning Spanish in a quick and fun way.
The classes cover grammar, conversation, exercises and homework. The
topics covered include Spanish and Mexican culture, costumes, and both
Mexican and Oaxacan traditions. The teachers enjoy teaching and seeing
their students learn to write and speak Spanish. The director,
the teachers and the employees together make a team and offer quality
learning in a professional atmosphere that is also friendly and fun.
They offer many things that make the school different and work well.

Oaxaca Spanish Magic offers private and group classes, Monday through
Friday. Saturdays are normally reserved for private classes. No class
has more than 5 or 6 students. Classes begin every Monday at 9 am. We
recommend that you arrive at 8:30 am Monday morning and take a brief
written and oral exam that will permit us to evaluate your skills. This
allows us to place you in the right level class. If you want to begin
the class on a different day of the week, that is also possible. You
only need to take the exam.
Generally the classes are four hours a day, but if you want to take
less you can attend for three hours a day. In addition to
classes in Spanish, we offer classes or workshops in literature, the
history of Mexico and conversation exchange opportunities.

verbs, and sentence structures so you can comfortably communicate as

more complex sentence structures, but want to learn more. The
conversation becomes more challenging because you will being expressing
your ideas and talking more quickly. Reading out loud becomes important
in order to perfect pronunciation.

materials to consult, and DVDs in Spanish.

to complete. They will also have a notebook for drawing and painting
what they learn. They will also learn to make Oaxacan handcrafts.
Our teachers have a great deal of patience and take a good deal of
interest in what the children learn. When the chidren return home, they
always want to come back to school. If a child is younger than
six, and the parent are studying at Oaxaca Spanish Magic, we have a
nanny who can watch the children while the parents are in class.
conversation exchange is when you practice speaking Spanish with a
native Spanish speaker who at the same time wants to learn English. You
take turns practicing Spanish and English. In addition to practicing
your Spanish, you also can make a new friend, become familiar with a
wider vocabulary and colloquial expressions and learn more about the
culture and customs of Oaxaca. It is an opportunity that
you should not pass up. We can help you set this up. There is no charge for conversation exchanges .
