Having a place where you can feel at home and immerse yourself in the Spanish language will enable you to get the most out of your out of your time at Spanish Language School Tierras Mayas. For this reason we offer you the opportunity to stay with one of the families which have collaborated with us for many years.
We offer homestays as an experience to help you practice your Spanish as well as make long-lasting friendships. In addition to this, a homestay will allow you to directly experience and appreciate Mexican culture. We strongly recommend that you participate in our homestay program and live with a local family while you study Spanish.
Homestays include accommodation aswell as 3 meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner per day from Monday through Saturday. Homestays are for one week minimum. The host family does not provide meals on Sundays and national holidays. The host families serve mostly typical Mexican dishes, although the are often adapted to the taste of foreign guests.
Vegetarian and vegan meals are available upon request.
At each meal at least one family member, sometimes the entire family is present and happy to chat with you. This way, you will not only practice your Spanish in realistic everyday conversations, but also learn about Mexican customs at the same time. You will have your own private room and the host family will give you a key to the house so you can come and go as you please.
Weekends are your free time and you can choose to spend it with the family or explore the city independently. We select our host families very carefully to make sure you will feel comfortable and will have a pleasant experience whilst in their homes. The families we collaborate with are located within a few blocks from the school, so no lenghty walks or bus rides. Each of the families come recommended by previous students and they will receive you as a new member of the family.
