The Most Progressive Spanish,
English, and Cultural Education in Mexico
"It is always better to be in Community"
The instruction is customized to the learners' needs and interest, and rooted in the Paulo Freire methodology, what is applied to the teaching of Spanish as a second language. Students contribute their insights and ask the questions necessary for critical analysis. We offer small, intensive classes at all levels, year-round, in a friendly and relaxed community atmosphere, as well as several Special Programs every year focused on a particular issue or area of interest, which often include travel in the region.
Many different kinds of people who work with Spanish speakers would be attracted to CILAC Freire:
— teachers, people working in health professions, social workers, clergy, people working with immigrants, lawyers.
— activists in many fields: LGBTQ rights and culture, women’s rights, environment, human rights, indigenous rights, housing, education.
In Cuernavaca, a small, vibrant city with relatively few tourists, you will have constant opportunities to practice your Spanish in daily interactions and experience the daily life of Mexico — at the market, at the zocalo or town center, at political meetings, and at cafes and bookstores. It is easy to visit nearby towns with historic sites and festivals.
University social justice programs
Students from many countries and universities have received academic credit from their universities for their work at CILAC Freire,and teachers have earned continuing education credits from their school districts. Documentation describing our methodology, texts, schedule and teaching staff can be sent to your university or school district at your request.
