Le plus beau pays que je n’ai jamais visité. La ville de Guanajuato est juste paradisiaque. Beaucoup de choses à visiter ainsi que les villes aux alentours qui valent aussi le détour. Beaucoup de restaurants, de monuments, de petites places et de petites ruelles... Un endroit propice pour apprendre l’espagnol. Une ville très sûre. École très bien placée. À 10 minutes an pied du centre ville. Professeurs très patients et très pédagogues. Une école très typique de l’architecture de la ville (très colorée). Les salles de classes sont assez bien équipées. Les élèves venaient principalement du Japon, mais aussi de Suisse et de Hongrie. L’école n’est pas qu’un lieu où étudier la langue espagnole mais aussi pour créer des amitiés inoubliables avec les autres étudiants et les professeurs. Tres bonne ambiance en cours. On parle beaucoup ce qui aide an être bien plus an l’aise. Beaucoup d’exercices à l’écrit sur la grammaire, le vocabulaire, la conjugaison...Tableaux avec feutres. L’effectif réduit permet de progresser très rapidement. Famille très sympathique. Parle beaucoup donc permet aussi de beaucoup progresser en espagnol. La nourriture est très bonne. La salle de bain est parfaite bien qu’un petit petite. La famille est très patiente et nous laisse toute liberté sur les horaires de rentrée et de sortie de la maison. Propose le premier jour : une visite simple de la ville. Tous les vendredis un café social est proposé à tous les étudiants. Le principe est de parler dans un bar avec les professeurs et les étudiants pour faire connaissance et pour beaucoup ces moments étaient les meilleurs passés durant notre séjour. Propose la visite du musée iconographique du Quijote, des cours de danse et de cuisine.

« Oui beaucoup de progrès dans la langue espagnole. Puis fluide et suis repartie avec beaucoup plus débile vocabulaire et ait amélioré mes conjugaisons espagnoles grave aux professeurs et aux amis que j’ai rencontré à Guanajuato »

Top tips
« Certains monuments de la cille sont à visiter. Ex : Teatro Juárez, les nombreuses cathédrales et églises. Les petites places et callejones. La nourriture est à essayer aussi (tacos, enchiladas mineras...). Le musée des momies et les nombreux jardins. »

J'ai grandement apprécié mon séjours à Guanajuato. Belle ville ancestral, historique ou la tradition fait encore partie des valeurs du peuple et du pays. Pour l'école et les professeurs je donne 5, étoiles. D'ailleurs, j'ai bien l'intension d'y retourner pour ma deuxième expérience. C'est une excellente école, avec des professeurs dévoués et de service. Si l'on est pris dans une situation difficile, ils sont là. J'ai pu profiter de leurs disponibilité et cela m'a été très utile. Je n'ai aucun problème à vous référer, d'ailleurs, je vais fort probablement y retourner l'hivers prochain. A bientôt. Clermont Martel

Don Quijote, Guanajuato
Duration: 6 months

My girlfriend and I we wanted to go on a trip to do something interesting and useful. As we love the Spanish language and adventure, we went to Mexico for six months. My girlfriend was almost a beginner and, as for me, I had good basis acquired at the university. We followed the first three months of classes together each in a different class. As I am interested in everything related to social and education matters, I followed the internship program for the following three months as a volunteer in a school for disadvantaged children. This experience gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in the life of the country with a level of professional and human implication that I could never have imagined. My girlfriend kept on studying Spanish and after six months she can now speak quite well… and cook too, thanks to the Mexican cooking option offered by the school. Six unforgettable months!
