Wonderful Experience!
Santiago was a fantastic teacher for my kids and me. My children are 7 and 9 and each has a different and strong personality. Santiago figured out quickly how to meet their energy and connect with them to encourage them to speak with their new Spanish vocabulary. Back in California, we are still playing the game "Veo, Veo" that he taught us, and my son is cherishing his balloons that Santiago gave him as he learned the colors. Santiago also spent some time teaching me the verb conjugations of some of the more common verbs and explaining some things about Spanish to me at an adult level. Costa Verde Language School was a wonderful part of our week in Sayulita. It got us excited to pursue learning more Spanish at home!

My son and I attended Spanish school. Both of our instructors were affable, fun, but they also got us to work. I appreciate how this Spanish school is located at a private elementary school, so my tourist $ went to local student scholarships. It was also fun to have kids and teachers around.

Great classes and teacher!
We took a 1-week intensive beginner class at Costa Verde. Augustin was our instructor and he was excellent - super smart, patient, friendly and great at explaining any confusing bits. We had great conversations and both of us finished feeling like we'd gotten to a new place with our Spanish learning. Muchas gracias CV y Augustin!

Easy and fun learning!
Great teachers and convenient hours for classes. A real bargain and they were great about arranging students into the right class levels - even if not many students enrolled for the week.

Excellent Instruction
Our family of 4 visited Sayulita for 9 days over the New Year and selected to have a teacher from the Costa Verde Language School come to our house for private lessons. We hadn't been down to Mexico since 2009 so our Spanish was in need of much practice. Our teacher proved to be an excellent instructor, quickly appraising all our abilities and presenting us with challenges that left us feeling encouraged and less inhibited in conversation. Our children actually looked forward to their lessons and were sad to say goodbye at the end of our stay. Overall, very useful instruction and an opportunity for a rich cultural exchange as well.

Great way to improve your Spanish skills
Costa Verde Language school offers conversational classes 2 times per week. They have both intermediate and beginner levels. I so enjoy this class; it is relevant, interactive, comfortable and fun. I highly recommend this program to anyone that wants to improve their language skills.

Great conversation classes.
I have been taking conversation classes at the language school for a bit over a year now and have been very impressed with the level of teaching and the creativity and energy that my teacher brings to class every week. I would highly recommend these classes to others.

Great experience! Una gran experiencia!
Sometimes it's hard to get time away from the office, and with a full week planned in Sayulita, I was looking for a way to mix business with pleasure. I found information on Sayulita Life about spanish classes- and I had been wanting to focus my spanish language efforts for quite some time, in order to benefit my business. Nancy managed to give me several helpful lessons focusing on areas where I needed improvement- and even though they were few and short, gave me a base to continue learning spanish.

She was super flexible and very pleasant to spend time with. She even managed to work in a few lessons for my kids and the other 3 children travelling with us. On the last night in Sayulita, I bet the kids that they couldn't write down 100 spanish words- and they managed to come up with 150!

I would highly reccommend Costa Verde language school to anyone that wants to learn spanish in a relaxed atmosphere.

Great way to enhance one's Spanish while vacationing.
This is a very small, informal program that is actually an adjunct program in an elementary school. The teachers were friendly and informative. Since the classes were small it was possible to tailor Spanish language instruction to the needs and interests of the students. If you are looking for an intense formal instruction this is not the place. Classes met for two hours in the morning. Then you were free to enjoy the beautiful Sayulita setting for the rest of the day. If you are looking to increase your knowledge of Spanish without pressure, in a beautiful beach setting this may fit the bill for you.
