Habla offers courses nearly every week of the year. Classes begin every Monday at 9:30am until 1:30pm. Days begin at 9:30am with a light breakfast snack, coffee, and tea and a community meeting with all teachers and students. Classes then divide up by very specific levels so that we can meet your specific language learning needs. At 11:30am classes break for a lunchtime snack of traditional, homemade Mexican foods. One of our students said "I came to Habla for the language classes adn stayed for the food!" Classes then continue until 1:30pm.
On Tuesday and Thursdays, in the afternoons from 4:00-6:00pm, you will participate in a variety of experiences that tie into the morning classes. These will include: cooking classes, cultural walks, Mexican films in a local art house cinema, and creative workshops with local artists.
The total of class time per week is twenty-four hours which we feel is idea for gettting immersed in the language but also allowing you time to rest. We don't give after hours "homework" because we want you to use your time outside of Habla to relax and enjoy the beautiful city of Merida.
On the schedule please note that weeks that begin with a * indicate a four-day week due to Mexican holidays. These weeks are offered at a discount.
