If you’re looking for the ‘undiscovered’ Mexico, then learn Spanish in Oaxaca! With ancient Zapoteca sites, beautiful colonial buildings, and great nightlife, Oaxaca offers the perfect blend of both ancient and modern Mexico. Oaxaca’s zócalo, or main square, is a firm favourite with our students – it’s the ideal place to relax and try the local drink mezcal, made from cactus. Whilst you’re there, don’t miss the magnificent displays of food and craftsmanship at Oaxaca’s Saturday market. You’ll find over 700 stalls offering exotic fruit, colourful pottery, hand woven rugs and hot food and drink. Celebration is taken very seriously in the city, and with festivals throughout the year, it’s more than likely that you’ll see some music and dancing during your Spanish course in Oaxaca! Easter, Christmas and the Day of the Dead (November) are all key festivals in Oaxaca, whilst the Guelaguetza Festival, held in Oaxaca’s amphitheatre in July attracts visitors from Mexico and beyond!
