Learn Spanish With an Immersion Course in Cuernavaca Mexico

written by: Larry M. Lynch • edited by: Elizabeth Stannard Gromisch • updated: 7/14/2014

There are many ways to learn Spanish both at home and abroad. With Mexico both nearby and economical, the opportunity to learn Spanish via total immersion is an affordable reality for many. In addition to Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Morelos offers a variety of Spanish language learning options.

    The City of Cuernavaca

    Orizaba cathedral If you want to learn Spanish in a Mexican immersion environment, then Cuernavaca, the “City of Eternal Spring”, is the place for you.

    A virtual hub of foreign language learning schools, Cuernavaca offers an extensive choice of schools both to teach English and to study Spanish. In fact, during the summer months, the city is crowded by tourists and foreigners to an extent unequalled through most of Mexico.

    Both a blessing and a curse at once, this is where the city’s principal problems lie. Studying Spanish during the summer here can be a cultural immersion overload and unpleasantly overcrowded.

    Much of the year in Cuernavaca, however, can be a rewarding Spanish language immersion experience. With such a variety of locations, features, and prices from which to choose, you can almost certainly find one that best suits your particular Spanish language learning needs.

    Note: The international country PHONE code for Mexico is "52".
