Our method

 
At La Casita, we follow an immersive method.
 
What is Language immersion? Language immersion is a method used to teach students a second language where the language being taught is primarily used during teaching. 
This means that for the majority of the class, students are spending time learning, hearing, and speaking in a language other than their native tongue. It's learning a language in the most natural way.
 
Immersion helps your brain function like that of a native speaker. Studies show that immersion can help language learners develop the brain patterns of a native speaker. In fact, just observing and imitating a native Spanish speaker's pronunciation will help you learn Spanish faster. 
 
 
We are a young, certified, and highly qualified team of native Spanish teachers. See you in Mérida!

Student's reviews

La Casita is the PERFECT place to go to learn Spanish. I took the 4 week course. When I started, I could only understand the very basics. After 4 weeks, I can now understand so much more, and can have long conversations with locals. Getting around is so much easier now, and I’m so glad I chose this place to start my Spanish learning. The teachers and other staff were outstanding. Learning a new language isn’t easy, so it was very helpful to have teachers who are positive and encouraging. Being immersed in the culture and forced to speak daily was an added benefit. I stayed in the guesthouse, which is just a few blocks from the school. After a day of practicing Spanish, I had the afternoons to relax at the pool at the house, chill in a hammock, or go to an event that La Casita was hosting. There was always something to do on the weekends, from cenotes, to the beach, to the many things happening in the parks of Mérida. There is always music and dancing. I felt very much at home. I really can’t recommend La Casita enough. I hope to come back soon! Nos vemos!

Such a good vibe from Jose (the owner of the school) and the school itself looked really pretty.Now I trust my instinct more because of the experiences I had with them!
Teachers are really patient with you and always know what exercises can improve your Spanish skill. More importantly, very funny and interesting! I only knew very little Spanish before but after studying here for 6 weeks, slowly but I can express my feelings and understand what's been said. I can talk with locals and make friends easily . 120% recommended to visit here and learn Spanish first if you are planning to travel around Mexico or all around Latin america because first you'll make many friends at school and they can give you great advises of what to do and second you'll make more friends with locals while traveling if you can speak their language.
Thank you so much for the great time :))))))!!!

I loved my time at La Casita! so many great memories. José is an amazing host and Lizette is an amazing teacher. The accomodation was super comfortable. Besides learning Spanish i also learned how to make some mexican dishes like ceviche and guacamole. We also did many excursions. For sure i will return for a second course.
