I highly recommend La Calle Spanish School! The classes are great for getting really comfortable with conversing in Spanish. I personally appreciated that there wasn’t a strict “set curriculum”. I felt that it was a fun and interesting combination of conversing in a natural way, like you would with friends, while learning a new language. I found it to be more interesting than learning rote out of a textbook. I was there for four weeks and each week was different. I was continually learning new concepts while also reviewing things that I needed to work on.
All of the teachers and staff are friendly, supportive and all around great people! The building is lovely, the food at the café is delicious and the pool is very inviting! They also offer small group or private classes at very reasonable rates if there is something specific that you want to cover. There are also various social and cultural activities available. Cooking classes, walking tours of the city, etc. Raul is local tour guide who is super knowledgeable and when you take a tour with him it is like having a lesson and excursion in one!
I really hope that I get the opportunity to return again soon!

I traveled solo to Merida for the specific purpose of going to La Calle Spanish school so as to immerse myself in Spanish. Previously, a concierge at the Westin in Cancun, Eliana, took time to help me locate a good Spanish school in a safe city in Mexico, and it seemed that La Calle would serve my needs. Thanks to Eliana, I followed up on her research and decided that was the place for me.

I had never been to Merida. The photos on-line looked lovely, and there were numerous recommendations for going there. The school La Calle offered exactly the same- nice photos, many of the English speaking hotels recommended it, my Cancun concierge had found only good things about it... so I went.

It was the most wonderful experience! I had been afraid I would be overwhelmed and that it would be way over my head, however, the entire staff made me feel so welcomed and were so patient with me, and I actually hope to go back again next year.

I went to Merida knowing SOME Spanish words and verbs and I could understand simple written and spoken sentences, however I was not able to put a sentence together (I’d had about 20 weeks of Community Ed classes.) By the end of the 1st week at La Calle I could actually speak a little! I was so encouraged!! And I wish I could have stayed another week which would have kept the ball rolling, but I did not have that time available to me.

There were so many positive things that made my solo trip to Merida enjoyable, but I would begin by thanking the entire staff at La Calle, especially my teacher Sandra, for making me feel comfortable, welcomed and who patiently encouraged me to learn. The owners Rachel and Augustine run a great, fun program which incorporated fun quizes/games which stimulate words and conversation. Each 4 hour class went by like 2, and before I knew it, it was time to go. But to top that off, La Calle has an in-house restaurant called Punto de Reunion which provided lunch (and dinners) to any one who wanted to stay. For 85 pesos you were provided a large, delicious, beautiful meal. Chefs Rosa and Amanda are outstanding. After lunch you could also SWIM IN THE POOL which is a good size, has grass around it, and lounge chairs! La Calle was just the best. I met so many nice people from a wide variety of countries, and it was enjoyable getting to know them and do things after class with them.

Merida itself is just a lovely city with lovely people. The city is VERY clean, tranquil, safe, and I walked the Paseo de Montejo many times (Saturday night is very popular for strolling.) The Centro district was also great place for people watching and shopping, and you can find English speaking taxi drivers who are happy to provide private tours to Mayan ruins and cenotes about an hour or so away. My particular driver took me to the pueblo Becal to see the process of, and buy, a finely made beach hat made of softened palm leaves. My taxi driver Wilbert was the best!!

Having recounted some of my wonderful trip now makes me want to go back sooner than later! I was there the first week of April when the daytime temps were 99 degrees F, but there was ALWAYS a nice breeze if you are not inside. The constant breeze made for gorgeous nightly strolls. I want to try going there in Jan/Feb next, but if you are not afraid of some breezy heat, the 1st week of April was not crowded.

Plus there are many ex-pats who have relocated to Merida, or whom have a 2nd residence there. So you still have a variety of places to go and jump into an English speaking crowd. My lovely hotel, the Westin, was near to Hennessey’s Pub so I was able to keep up with Spartan basketball too.

Hope this all helps in some way for those thinking of going to Merida or La Calle. I normally travel to resort destinations in MX, and Merida was a little jewel I found and hope you will enjoy it too. My best to the success of La Calle y buena suerte Rachel, Augustino,Sandra, Rosa y Amanda tambien. Adios!

I spent one week here in December 2018. Everyone teaching there is amazing! The whole school is welcoming and has a relaxed atmosphere. It's a speak spanish only environment which I found great and really helped me to learn quickly! The group classes were fantastic, never boring and learnt so much. And as a solo traveller made great friends. I also took one-to-one sessions which were tailored to my specific medical language needs and really worth doing. Overall if you are looking for a place in Merida to learn Spanish, with wonderful people, an encouraging atmosphere and delicious food... this is the place for you.

I spent a week at La calle learning Spanish and loved it! The teachers and staff are very friendly and the teaching is phenomenal. Our group classes were conversation-based and our teacher always came up with motivating topics. My Spanish improved a lot in just 5 days. Thank you, La calle!

Min kæreste og jeg var en uge på sprogskole i La Calle i Marts 2018. Det var en super god oplevelse. Lærerne og hele staben er engagerede, seriøse og skaber et rart miljø. Skolens placering i byen er rigtig god og faciliteterne er framragende (især poolen). Skolen sørger for at arrangere aktiviteter udover de timer, man tilmelder sig, hvilket giver sammenhold og ekstra mulighed for at lære spansk. Hvis vi havde vidst på forhånd, hvor god en oplevelse La Calle var, ville vi helt sikkert være blevet et par uger mere.

Og Mérida er en fantastisk (og varm) by at lære spansk i! Helt klart anbefalelsesværdig.

! Woche Unterricht in "la calle" und einfach losreden!
Sehr engagierte Lehrer, die einen immer positiv unterstützen (gracias, Miguel!), durchweg überzeugendes interaktives Konzept:
jeden Vormittag 4 Stunden Konversation, und das, obwohl ich mit sehr geringen Kenntnissen angereist bin. Es hat von Anfang an Spaß gemacht, ich habe mich sehr willkommen gefühlt. Nach 1 Woche bin ich weitergereist nach Ciudad de Mexico und konnte mich verständigen und war damit sofort in Kontakt mit so freundlichen Menschen - bei einem Konzert, auf den Märkten, in Restaurants, im Bus ....
Auch die angebotenen Freizeitaktivitäten kann ich sehr empfehlen: die Stadtführung mit Raoul und die Tagestour an Orte, die ich sonst vielleicht nicht gefunden hätte: Baden in 2 Cenotes, Mototaxi fahren, Mittagessen bei einer Mayafamilie - wer wollte, durfte seine Tortillas selber backen. Und den ganzen tag Spanisch sprechen.
Nächstes Jahr komme ich wieder, aber dann für 2 Wochen!
P.S.
Ja, ich spreche Englisch. Aber in Mexico hab ich so getan als könnte ich´s nicht. Dann blieb ja nichts anderes übrig als Spanisch ...

Was ich besonders an der Schule mag, sind dort die Menschen und das Lehrkonzept, denn sie schaffen es innerhalb kurzer Zeit, dass die Schüler die Sprache ohne Hemmungen sprechen. Und das ist sensationell!! Ich war mittlerweile schon das zweite Mal dort in der Schule und konnte mein Spanisch verbessern. Die Lehrer sind einfach nur großartig! Ich liebe den kostenlosen Kaffee zum Frühstück (alternativ Tee oder Wasser), das super leckere Essen von der Köchin am Mittag (auch für Vegetarier ist jeden Tag etwas im Angebot) und den Pool in der Schule zum Abkühlen am Nachmittag, den man bis 17 Uhr abends nutzen kann. Super klasse sind die angebotenen wöchentlichen Nachmittagsveranstaltungen (Stadtführung, Kinofilm mit Untertitel, Koch-Kurs, Salsa-Kurs, Tour mit Ruinen, Cenotes und Hacienda, alles dabei).
Ich freue mich schon auf mein drittes Mal, an dem ich in der Schule weiter meine Sprachkenntnisse ausbauen kann.

Rachel, Paola, Amanda, Marisol, Pila, Augustin, Elliot & Miguel!!
Danke, Gracias y merciiii!

HASTA LA PROXIMA!!
Anja :-)

Teachers knew exactly what you needed to focus on to improve your conversational Spanish. Covered only the essential grammar needed at the moment to move you along. Very individualized instruction. Speaking and comprehension emphasized.

J'ai fait une semaine de cours en groupe accompagnée de quelques cours particuliers pour retrouver et améliorer mon niveau d'espagnol. J'ai passé une excellente semaine à participer aux cours ! L'équipe est à la fois accueillante, dynamique, très à l'écoute des besoins des élèves et sympatique. Les cours en groupe sont vivants et les activités proposées permettent de lier connaissance, toujours en espagnol, avec d'autres élèves. J'ai pu participé au cours de cuisine mexicaine que je conseille vivement. La maison qui héberge l'école est également très agréable: colorée, aérée, avec piscine et cafétéria.
Un grand merci à toute l'équipe !
