I really enjoyed my three weeks of Spanish classes with Maria Romero. She was patient and steady in her teaching and able to manage students at various levels. The immersion approach of the school was effective and stimulating for me - I was pleased with the complexity of the conversations I was able to have with patient native Spanish speakers after my 3 weeks. I liked the small class size (3) and the focus on conversation. It would have been useful for me to have more drill and practice exercises (both verbs and vocabulary) both in class and for homework.
Coming from Germany i found Paolas intermediate class at TAAN very enjoyable. I chose the school based on the methodology since i found it different from other schools and it allowed me to learn and discover Playa del Carmen. Class felt like a family and i made friends with Aussies, Norwegians, Brazilians, Americans, Canadians among other students. I enjoyed the fact of class being outside of a classroom just as the real world is.
Excellent methodology I studied Spanish 3 weeks in the 20 hour per week course and enjoyed the activities.
I fully recommend this courses and school. Stayed 2 weeks after Mexico City. Teachers were very dedicated, ages and nationalities very mixed which was positive for me. Classes are different in a sense that these are not sitting in a class for hours. I fully recommend and to be honest I learned a lot in my 2 weeks compared to other programs I have done in the past.
