The Spanish Institute is located in an Ex-Capuchin Convent from the 17th Century that is almost 400 years old and is only 4 blocks from the Zocalo (Main Plaza) in the Historic Center of Puebla. The facade of the Institute was restored to its original look following the INAH (Instituto National de Antropología e Historia) guidelines of Mexico. The inside was remodeled with optimal classroom sizes and soundproof walls to obtain the best Spanish Language Learning experience. From the upper terrace, you will have a view of the Popocatepetl Volcano and many Church steeples.
The Language School is located in Puebla, which is the most important Colonial City in Mexico. Due to its history and architectural styles ranging from Renaissance to Mexican Baroque, the city was named by the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It is a great city to learn and study Spanish in Mexico due to the fact that you are living the Culture as you walk through the city. The city is famous for Cinco de Mayo, Mole Poblano, Chiles enNogada, Architectural styles, Talavera, etc. combined with modern Industry. The city of Puebla, when compared in size, is one of the safest cities in the world.
If you are serious about learning Spanish, this is the recommended program! The desing of full immersion (classes, conversations, trips, host family) in a safe and rich-in-culture cuty like Puebla was super helpful for me. I believe that one learns more when feeling happy and I got that here with SIP.
It was an excellent experience participating in the SIP program. The teacher was magnificent. After 3 weeks my Spanish in much better. The mayor benefit of attending this program was that my Spanish improved tremendously.
I signed up to improve my Spanish and the morning classes were perfect for that. The small class size allowed me to ask every question I had and the teacher made the class very interactive. I now understand a lot more Spanish. I liked the optional excursions.
The program at the Spanish Institute of Puebla was very organized and comprehensive. I really enjoyed having an individual conversation guide in the afternoons. My teacher was a great teacher. Started with no Spanish and can now have conversations after only 6 weeks – so it works!
