Learn Spanish the old-fashioned way, in an exclusive mansion in Mexico City. The Fluenz Spanish Immersion course is a six-day, intensive Spanish class, fully engrossing students in a real world, Spanish-speaking environment surrounded by fluent speakers — all while staying in luxury accommodations, of course.

The Fluenz Spanish Immersion class was specially designed for English speakers and hosts only 12 guests at a time — providing personalized instruction with an element of security in a group setting.

Between lessons, enjoy the stay in the beautiful, fully restored, 1920s Spanish Revival estate. The cobalt blue color, ornate accents and charming walkway set the scene for a bygone era in Mexico. Go with the kids and make it a family adventure, or encourage the adult children to give it a try. Learning a new skill, especially a language, can better everyone in the family for future careers and travel opportunities.

During the six-day, seven-night stay, students engage in Spanish conversation with expert coaches in one-on-one sessions. After each lesson, students receive an assessment, back to a new session, a new assessment and so on. After a few hours of the learning cycle, it’s recovery time. Join the other students for a yoga session to stretch out, unwind and get the blood flowing again. Fuel up with freshly prepared meals from locally sourced ingredients and power your mind and body for your next session.

Enjoy local nightlife with fellow guests and expert hosts while exploring the city’s vibrant bar scene, fine dining and entertainment. Practice your Spanish-speaking skills and converse with the locals, order in the native tongue and get first-hand experience with your newfound ability. Head out on exclusive art tours with expert guides and take in Mexico City in a new light.
