Spanish Learning Classes in Cozumel
Vacationing in a foreign land is always exciting and can be a bit scary if English is not the first language of the country you are visiting and you don't know their language!! You could ask some one for a bathroom and get handed a banana instead! The ultimate barrier to remove when trying to learn and understand a different culture is language. Once you can communicate with some one in their homeland and in their language, the final curtain is raised and an entirely different and expanded cultural experience awaits.

When visiting Mexico, most tourist destinations now have a large bi-lingual Spanish/English population and one shouldn't expect to encounter many language barrier problems. However, being willing and able to some extent to communicate in Spanish is very helpful and also alot offun!

If you think you might be interested in learning Spanish before coming to Cozumel, why not visit your local book store and pick up an entry level "Learn the Basics" type of reference book? We also invite you to visit our online comprehensive guide to Basic Spanish Phrases - Cozumel Insider's Spanish Guide. With the bookstore reference text and the Basic Phrases link above as overviews of Spanish language fundementals, you might decide you want to take your learning further while here in Cozumel on vacation.
Learning Basic Spanish in Cozumel
If you are interested in a cursory review of basic Spanish and how to pronounce various words/phrases, there is really no need to pay for a "course or class" to do this! Interestingly enough, because this is a tourist destination, there are many bi-lingual locals who would love to trade time with you and learn too!! They get to practice their English and ask questions while you do the same about Spanish! What a great way to meet new island friends too!! This is the most practical, economical and enjoyable way to see if Spanish is fun for you!

As a day visitor to Cozumel or and extended stay guest....

...just bring your reference book and a printout of the Basic Spanish Phrases guide along with you on your Cozumel vacation. Then visit your hotel lobby, a bar, a restaurant, your dive shop, etc. and ask around to see if there is some one who is interested in sharing this sort of experience with you. Chances are there is some one and the most it might cost you is a couple of tacos or something similar. This gives you the flexibility to spend as little or as much time learning Spanish as you like on your vacation here in Cozumel!

Now.....If you find learning Spanish exciting and challenging and you've tackled the basics and want to move up a notch, then you need a different level of Spanish speaking person to really teach you the fundementals over an extended stay. You need some one trained and skilled not only in speaking Spanish properly but in teaching as well. You will need a Spanish speaking, degreed educator with courses and learning materials designed for those wanting to develop their present knowledge for private, educational or professional reasons.

(05/24/2015) - Our first visit to Mexico and we loved it! IslaMar was perfect for us laid back and very quiet people. Far enough away from all the tourist traps but close enough when we needed that part of it. The staff we met were Nidia, Andrea and Juan – all very helpful and friendly. We used bicycles to get to and from the beach a lot (30 minute rides) and to go to the grocery store and to tour the area! We visited four (4) local restaurants – El Super Hit; Chilango’s, El Mission for lunch and San Carlos for fish – all were very good and helpful with our broken Spanish. Love Cozumel and hope to come back soon! Loved the, the pool, etc.! We used Cozumel Rent-a-Bike – great bikes and door-to-door service! Great service from Martin as well as he arranged a rental car for us very last minute from Bonefish – Awesome Service! G. & F. Bungay ~ Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Stay (03/27/2014) - We truly enjoyed winter at our second home, IslaMar! Each of you at IslaMar provided a wonderful atmosphere given the tragedy of loss of a beloved staff member. None of you has had an opportunity to mourn his loss, as you all have been knee-deep taking care of all of us. We were hesitant to mention Miguel, but we wished to honor him as an intricate part of the IslaMar family for many enjoyable years. Sherri, Mauricio and Zuri, thank you for taking care of us! Pam & Art B. ~ Portland, OR

Stay (02/22/2013) - We have had a great time! We are set to leave and thankful to have met the many people here. We try to stay away from the resorts so we can learn about the community and the people who make the area. IslaMar does that for us! We didn’t get to spend much time by the pool and enjoying the beautiful grounds since our days were spent on the water or under the water, but again, thank you for a clean, safe place to come home to every night. Ed & Kari F. ~ Kent, WA

(02/21/2015) - What a great place to spend Valentine’s Day 2015! And with their CARNAVAL starting in town tonight, couldn’t have picked a better location to get a slice of local life and culture! That’s why we were so happy at IslaMar. We really loved the attention and sweetness of Nidia, Andrea and Daniela who couldn’t’ have been more helpful and concerned about our comfort. The grounds and pool are so well maintained by Juan too! We thank Sherri and Mauricio for providing this piece of paradise in paradise. We understand why guests return like the swallows to Cozumel and to your IslaMar Villas. Thank you! B. & F. Elbeze ~ Fairfax, VA USA

Sherri, I did receive both email confirmations. Thank you again for your great customer support and service in getting these activities scheduled for me. I will recommend your site to all of my friends who visit the island. Thanks again!! A. Washburn ~ Not Given
