Learn Spanish in Oaxaca - Instituto Cultural Oaxaca


The Instituto Cultural Oaxaca gives you the option of living with a local Oaxacan family during your Spanish learning.

Staying with an Oaxacan family will be an everlasting experience, and your immersion to learn Spanish Oaxaca will be holistic. 

The families will provide you with comfortable and clean private rooms (or shared for people traveling together). Living with a family enables you to interact on a daily basis and helps develop your comprehension and speaking abilities. Our families are carefully screened and their homes inspected by Institute staff to ensure peace of mind while taking advantage of learning about Oaxacan culture.
