Spanish course Guadalajara, Mexico
Discover Guadalajara - a city of fiestas, fascinating history and friendly locals! After your Spanish lessons, marvel at colonial remnants like the stunning Cathedral, or the ancient pyramids of Guachimontones, just west of the city. Also close by are the town of Tequila, where the famous drink was born, and Cocula, home of Mariachi music. A Spanish course in Guadalajara will place you at the heart of Mexican culture!
Central to the local way of life is football, and the Estadio Jalisco is always packed with passionate fans on matchdays. Equally entertaining is the nightlife in this most eclectic of university cities, offering everything from laid-back piano bars to bustling clubs. Despite being Mexico’s second city, Guadalajara has a relaxed atmosphere, and there are countless parks and plazas where you can simply watch the world go by. This is a wonderfully varied city and a fantastic place for a Spanish language course!
