My Spanish lessons were wonderful. My teacher was great and I would highly recommned her to others. She was patient yet pushed me when I needed it. I'm very thankful to have been taking lessons at Ixchel. The teachers, school and staff were truly amazing.
It has been wonderful living here and taking classes here has made my experience fantastic. I’m very happy that I chose Ixchel. I wish I could stay longer!

Our experience here at Ixchel school was great. Our teachers were very patient and the one-on-one teaching was very helpful. Everyone was wonderful. Our meals made by Ana were always delicious.
We will definitely be returning at some point in the future and will recommend the school to anyone interested in learning Spanish. Thank you for everything!
