Why SCLS?  |  Our Founders

Your search for a Spanish Language school in Mexico will have revealed that there are hundreds of options available to you in dozens of locations. You may ask yourself, what makes the San Cristobal Language School and the schools of the Teach Me Mexico network different from all the others? We believe that the answer can be found in the three simple principles upon which all the TMM Spanish schools were founded, "Teach, Share and Give."


Teach the Spanish Language. The San Cristobal Language School takes pride in its highly qualified team of Spanish language teachers and its state-of-the-art teaching materials. All of its teachers are university trained and most have over a decade of teaching experience. The San Cristóbal Language School has created its own language materials by combining the latest linguistic theories with years of practical teaching experience. These materials are designed to ensure that each of the school’s Spanish language packages is taught in a highly professional manner and that students enjoy a productive and rewarding leaning experience.


 Share the Mexican Culture. The cultural richness of Mexico needs no introduction. It's cuisine can be found in almost every city around the world. The sounds of Mexican music instantly conjure images of guitars strummed by mariachis and people dancing salsa deep into the night. The legendary Mayans and Aztecs as well as other indigenous groups have inspired countless writers, movie directors and artists worldwide. Here at the San Cristobal Language Schools we try to share as much of this cultural richness as we can by offering a variety of workshops, tours and activities in addition to your language classes. We also introduce our students to contemporary Mexican culture by having regular outings to cultural events taking place around the city and state. The San Cristóbal Language School also offers its space to local indigenous artisans to give workshops to our Spanish students in which all the profits are given to the artisan.


Give back to the community. Here at the San Cristobal Language School we all realize that it is a privilege to be able to teach and live in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas. With that in mind, we try our best to give back to the city that has given us so much. San Cristobal de las Casas is known for its large amount of charities and NGO's, and as a result SCLS offers extensive volunteering opportunities to our students. We believe that those who give freely receive much more in return.
