Family Spanish Program
Guadalajara Language Center (GLC) offers this unique program to families with children, allowing both parents and children a rich Spanish-immersion experience in Mexico. Children take Spanish classes specifically designed for the needs of young learners, with an emphasis on oral communication and everyday vocabulary in lessons that are fun and engaging.
In addition, parents can elect to have their children attend a local elementary school for extra Spanish practice. Parents take four hours of Spanish a day, focusing on everyday conversation while acquiring the grammatical skills they need to communicate effectively.
GLC’s location is a safe, comfortable setting for learning Spanish as a family. Tlaquepaque is a lively, colorful city with a small-town feel. Families are free to choose the accommodation option that best suits their needs, including apartment and house rentals and homestays with local Mexican families. The school can arrange accommodations for families with four or more persons staying together.
Within a five-minute walk from the school, the pedestrian walkway along Calle de la Independencia (Independence Street), with its art galleries and street musicians, is a perfect place to spend time as a family, as is Jardín Hidalgo, the square at the heart of Tlaquepaque which frequently showcases mariachi performances.
For those interested in feeling the pulse of the second-largest city in Mexico, the historic center of Guadalajara is only a 20-minute bus trip away. Studying Spanish at GLC through the Family Spanish Program is an opportunity for everyone in the family to share an adventure and experience the culture where the language is spoken.
"Everything about the program was wonderful. The staff was very flexible to the needs of the students and took the time to make sure we understood the concepts. The school is located in a quaint neighborhood only minutes away from the heart of downtown Guadalajara. I would definitely return to take classes again and would definitely recommend the school to anyone from beginners to advanced levels of Spanish"
