Spanish school in paradise
If you want to learn to speak the local language while you are staying by the beautiful beach here in Oaxaca then this is the most established and well organised option.

Up a hill at the back of Mazunte (away from the beach) this has a stunning view of the bay which you can gaze across while trying to grasp the next word you are going to say to your tutor.

Anniversary party at Instituto Iguana

I was lucky to arrive just before their 2nd Anniversary party which happened to coincide both with the 2nd February celebrations of Candlemas - which in Mexico is typically recognised by giving away tamales, and with the imminent arrival of a circus festival in town.

It was a spectacular evening of acrobatics, clowns and music!

Anyway, this isn't the main point of the place of course, but it is representative of how they get involved in the community on a regular basis. Their space was also used for various workshops and classes during the circus fest.

They also arrange many other activities for students from whale watching boat trips to cooking classes. As a non-profit organisation, social engagement is very important to the centre as a whole.

My teacher was Edu and she was very helpful with my faltering grasp of Spanish verbos and sentence construction.

I took the "super-intensive" one on one class which was more expensive for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. You can also go for group classes which are cheaper, working on a sliding scale depending on your level of intensity.
