Spanish Center Merida in Merida The Spanish Center Merida is an independent, owner managed Spanish Language School located in the beautiful and safe city of Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. We are a team of professional and caring people dedicated to providing a first class experience for every student.
Our Spanish School is strategically situated north east of the historic center in the Itzimna neighborhood, one of the most beautiful colonial neighborhoods of the city. It`s a quiet and safe place, close to downtown and within walking distance to the city`s most important avenues (Paseo de Montejo and Circuito Colonias), which not only ensure easy and fast access to all parts of the city but also offer a great variety of recreational and commercial sites, including parks, cafes, restaurants, shops and banks.
The school building itself is a typical Meridian town house which retains much of the charm and intimacy of a family home. Our facilities consist of 5 bright and spacious indoor classrooms, all fully equipped and air conditioned, 1 outdoor class in our tropical courtyard, a cafeteria with computer corner, a swimming pool and a terrace where students can relax during breaks between Spanish classes.

Our Spanish Courses are available year-round at six levels that range from absolute beginner to advanced. The small number of students per class (max. group size = 5) ensures effective teaching with the flexibility to meet the students' individual needs. During the first session all students do a written and spoken placement test to determine the appropriate level and class. Throughout their Spanish Course our teachers continuously monitor the students' progress and are always available to offer academic support and advice.
Certificates and Diplomas
On completion of their course students receive a certificate that confirms attendance and level attained.
As we believe that communication is the key and the main reason for learning languages, our highly experienced and professional teaching staff concentrates on practical communication using innovative methodologies and technologies as well as meaningful materials related to real life situations.
All our courses are designed to help students improve their Spanish focusing on the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. In addition we regulary arrange teacher guided excursions to encourage our students to speak and understand Spanish in different environments.
Social and Cultural Activities
We regulary organise a variety of optional social and cultural activities in the afternoons/evenings, or at the weekend. These activities are guided by a member of our Spanish teaching staff and not only give our students the opportunity to practice their newly acquired Spanish language skills but also to enjoy themselves, make friends and find out more about Mérida, the Yucatán and the Mexican way of life.
The accommodation is an essential part of a student’s stay with us. It not only complements the students' learning experience but also affects the students' ability to study and improve the Spanish language. We know that our students have different accommodation preferences and do therefore provide a range of different accommodation options. With a large number of selected host families, a variety of self-catering apartments as well as a good selection of hotels, guest houses and hostels all within walking distance of our schools, we offer a choice of accommodation options for all kind of needs.
