If you need to learn Spanish this is the place. This a place where accommodation, private lessons, and any other activity is available but won't break the bank. It's very cheap but more over it's comfortable and yes, it's beautiful too. I've been here for over three weeks now and will be staying many more. My sole objective being to learn Spanish well.
This will take a lot of time and a lot of effort I know, but it is the first step to pursuing a life abroad here in Latin America. What better way to begin than by learning Latin American Spanish in Latin America herself? I feel blessed to have this opportunity, but I also know that a lot of hard work and dedication went into getting myself here.
The school is quaint as there are beds for only eight students. My room is small and basic, but fits me and all my belongings with space to spare. There is a communal kitchen, dining area, lounge, serval classrooms and two sunny courtyards. The school is located two blocks from the Central Park and the heart of the lively downtown, it's two blocks from a major market with the freshest fruit and vegetables you could by. A nearby bus stop provides access to all other locales within the city and townships nearby. Volcano peaks tower in every direction and the air is cool at such heights (7,000ft, 2,100m).
There is so much to here, in the city and vinicinity. Volcanoes to climb, lakes to plunge, hots springs to soak, festivals to attend, food to eat, and mucho mucho mas. You'll just have to take my word for it or come and check it out for yourself.
