International House Riviera Maya Playa del Carmen

Study Spanish at International House Riviera Maya, a warm, vibrant school where you can mix Spanish lessons with your holidays on the stunning coast of Mexico.

The school is housed in two adjoining buildings: a colonial style building and a three-storey building overlooking a garden. It is just a ten-minute walk from swimming beaches, where students can relax and enjoy their free time after class. If students want to participate in more activities outside of class, the school has a program of activities ranging from conversation exchanges with Mexican students to celebrating Mexican festivals, arts and crafts activities or even cocktail nights.

Playa del Carmen is a bustling small town, with many restaurants, cafés, bars, and nightclubs, where students can enjoy delicious Mexican cuisine and the local nightlife.

The school has its own purpose-built facilities, meaning that the classrooms are designed to be comfortable, well lit and have ample space, as well as air conditioning which is necessary for warm days when you would rather be at the beach. Although, the classes will keep all students engaged in class and advancing in their Spanish language learning, with well-trained teachers and interesting courses and activities.

All teachers undergo teacher training and are selected based on their demonstrated ability in the classroom. Additionally, teachers receive ongoing support through training and seminars to maintain a high standard of Spanish language education.
