We’re a small, friendly and intimate language school based in the idyllic location of Chiapa de Corzo, the oldest town in the rural state of Chiapas in Mexico. According to Lonely Planet Mexico 2009 Edition, our town is “An overlooked jewel……a small attractive colonial town with an easy going, provincial air.”

We also use these classes to provide TEFL training and hands-on authentic teaching experience for those wishing to begin a career teaching abroad.
