Costs are very reasonable and allow you to vastly improve your Spanish without breaking your budget.
The basic approach to the study of Spanish at Cemanahuac is a balanced one, with emphasis on speaking and listening, reading and writing. At Cemanahuac, class-time emphasis is placed on the communicative skills, and stress is placed on speaking and listening, with the grammar embedded in the exercises used to develop these skills. Therefore, clinics and workshops on reading and composition are held each week, so these skills are not neglected. "Out of the classroom exercises" are included, with teachers asked to plan at least one trip to a nearby spot at least once a week...the post office, the grocery store, a restaurant, etc....for the purpose of vocabulary building and learning situation-appropriate behavior and language. The Cemanahuac staff believes this approach clearly fulfills our slogan, "Study Spanish where it's spoken."
Cemanahuac does not seek to be the largest language education program in Mexico, but it does attempt to be the best! It is with this philosophy in mind that the language program embraces the five goal areas that are identified in Standards for Foreign Language Education...Preparing for the 21st Century. This document, written by a blue-ribbon task force of language education professionals and endorsed by all language education associations, identifies the "Five C's" of Foreign Language Education. Cemanahuac teachers and staff members wholeheartedly support the these goals and consider them essential for our language study program.
Language and cultural studies are at the core of our curriculum, enabling the student to begin to reach toward a greater language competency.
Language is NOT best learned in a cultural vacuum!!! In addition to the four/five hours a day of Spanish, Cemanahuac offers a host of special programs of interest to educators and others, including:
