The school is located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, two blocks away from the beach houses, in a district dotted with small boutiques, bars and traditional restaurants. The main part of the school includes a reception, a study room and some offices. The colonial-style building features a magnificent vault, as well as a terrace and a French restaurant on the ground floor. The school has 10 fully-equipped classrooms, with air conditioning and a splendid view on the lush tropical garden. Students can also relax and have a drink with their classmates in the garden bar.

Hat alle meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Mexiko ist ein wunderschönes Reiseland mit unfassbar vielen Ausflugszielen, Strand- und Badeorten, ganz viel Tanz und Musik, Kultur, fantastisches Essen und sehr sehr gastfreundliche Menschen vor Ort. Ich hatte eine supertolle Gastfamilie, wo ich mich nach binne kurzer Zeit total zu Hause gefühlt habe. Die Schule war ebenfalls erstklasig. Lehrer und Nachmittagsgestaltung einfach toll. Erstklassige Lehrer, 1A Lehrmaterial, super Nachmittagsprogramm. Klassenkolegen aus aller Welt, jeden Alters, zusammen einfach toll. Ich habe mich nach 2 Tagen wirklich als Teil der Familie gesehen. Ganz tolle Familie. Und dann wollte ich nach 8 Wochen gar nicht mehr nach Hause. Meine mexikanische Gastmutter ist eine ganz tolle Frau, die wunderbar kochen kann, mit der man ganz toll walken gehen, quatschen, Kaffee trinken und vor allem Mexiko ein bisschen mehr und intensiver genießen kann. Man hat sich die ganze Zeit sehr liebevoll und führsorglich um mich gekümmert. Ganz ganz tolle Familie. Ich habe am Kochunterricht teilgenommen, und einen Ausflug nach Chichen Itza gemacht.Restliche Ausflüge habe ich mit Klassenkollegen privat unternommen. Super Erfahrung, weiter so!!!

Ich liebe Mexiko, Playa Del Carmen ist zwar sehr turistisch aber perfekt wenn man das erste Mal in Mexiko ist. Die Freizeitangebote waren lustig, mehr oder weniger jede Woche dasselbe aber die Leute haben sich Mühe gegeben und waren immer sehr lieb! Die Ausflugsangebote waren mir persönlich zu teuer!

« Ja! Könnte aber noch besser sein. Durch die Hohe Anzahl von Schweizern und Deutschen wird privat dann oft Deutsch gesprochen. Der Privatunterricht hat sehr geholfen und der Kontakt zu den Einheimischen und meiner Lehrerin, welche mittlerweile eine gute Freundin ist :) »

Playa Del Carmen: wesentich attraktiver als Cancún und bietet super Möglichkeiten seine Freizeit abwechslungsreich und flexibel zu gestaltenMexico: Wer zum ersten Mal in Mexico ist, wird anfangs einen kleinen Kulturschock bekommen, sich aber nach ein paar Tagen super wohl und auch sicher fühlen! Leider waren teilweise zu wenig Schüler in der Schule um ordentliche, niveaugleiche Klassen zu bilden, was den Lernprozess ein wenig aufgehalten hat. Tipp: Kauft in Deutschland das Lehrbuch, denn dort ist es sehr teuer. Ich habe leider mein Buch für eine Woche gekauft und danach Kopien von nächsten Buch bekommen, was ich nicht ganz nachvollziehen konnte. In allen Bereichen, die beste Lösung! Der ständige Kontakt mit der Sprache macht sich nach ein paar Wochen deutlich bemerkbar. Man unterhält sich mit anderen Schülern leider zu viel auf Englisch, was die Gastfamilie dann wieder kompensiert.

Detta var min första resa till latinamerika så innan avfärd var jag såklart lite nervös. Helt i onödan! Människorna i Mexico är bland de snällaste, varmaste och hjälpsamma människor jag någonsin träffat. Kände mig aldrig osäker. Men som överallt ska sunt förnuft råda. Skolan jag valde, International House Playa del carmen var helt fantastisk. Bra lärare, härlig miljö +++++++++ ! Vill verkligen rekommendera. Jag reste själv men var inte själv en enda minut (om jag inte valde det), skolan ordnar dagligen aktiviteter och du lär känna studenter lika mycket som du träffar lokala människor! Allt är bra! Och jag är inte den som ger ut betyg lättvindigt. Vill tillbaka! :)

IH, Playa del Carmen
Duration: 8 weeks

Why learn Spanish in Playa Del Carmen? Well, simply because it is a most pleasant town, which means that you learn Spanish without even realising it. The International House school is located right in the town centre and a three-minute flip flop walk from the beach. The teachers are very welcoming and competent. In addition, the school offers many activities in order to discover Mexican culture. The place is simply heavenly with its white sand beaches that lead to turquoise waters. And for culture enthusiasts, there are many Maya sites nearby.

Host family
Living like a local is undoubtedly a beneficial experience for students. This way, you will be completely immersed in the Spanish language. You will have your own room and the host family will daily provide breakfast and dinner.

Shared apartments
You will have your own room and share the common areas with your flatmates. The apartments are located at a comfortable distance from the school by foot.

Residence
The student residence is located in the centre of Playa del Carmen. It’s on a quiet street, only 5 minutes from the school by foot and just 3 blocks from the beach. Each room has a flat-screen TV, fridge and air conditioning. Students stay in en suite double rooms (for single use or shared if travelling with a friend) and can choose from half-board, breakfast only or self-catering, in which case they may use the shared kitchen.
