Habla is a unique and creative language school in Mexico.
We are also an internationally recognized education center inspiring teachers to build enriching experiences for their students.
Our goal is for you to learn in a dynamic, meaningful way and to have a cross-cultural journey guided by an amazingly diverse group of people. We are not simply teachers; we are also artists, authors, musicians and playwrights who have come together to create a language and cultural center unlike any other.
Founded in 2008, the concept for Habla began percolating shortly after Marimar and Kurt met at Brown University, Marimar a graduate student and Kurt the director of the Education Department’s Artslit program. Upon making the decision to live full time in Marimar’s hometown of Merida it became clear that this is where Habla would be born, a language school focused on their shared passion for creative learning and a center where teachers, education leaders and artists could gather to exchange ideas and best teaching practices.
Today the continuing success of Habla is driven by the incredible team Marimar and Kurt have brought together and supported by an international advisory board of leaders in the fields of education, language development and the arts. Most importantly, it is fueled by the diverse students from many countries and all ages that gather to learn in Habla’s classrooms every day.
We invite you to join us in beautiful Merida, Yucatan the 2017 Cultural Capital of the Americas.
Be a part of Habla and live…..laugh….learn.
