Learn Spanish in one of the biggest and most dazzling cities in the world! Mexico City is located in the center of the country and “la DF” (from “Distrito Federal”), as the capital is commonly referred to by Mexicans, has a lot to offer. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city situated in an old lake basin that is surrounded by volcanic mountains. The original Aztec city was established in 1325 as „Tenochtitlan“, and became the center of the growing Aztec empire.
After centuries of pre-Columbian civilization, Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortes first arrived in the area in 1519. He did not succeed in conquering the city until August 1521, after a 79-day siege that destroyed most of the old Aztec city. In 1525, the rebuilt city served as the capital of the viceroyalty of New Spain and the political and cultural center of Mexico. This colonial period culminated with the construction of the baroque Metropolitan Cathedral and the Basilica of Guadalupe.
The various cultures that inhabited the city over the centuries left an interesting architectural legacy, comprised of many different styles. The city has a touch of modernism, which can be seen through its huge skyscrapers, such as the Torre Mayor and Torre Latinoamericana. In addition, it boasts a historical center and water gardens in the suburb of Xochimilco, which belong to the UNESCO world heritage.
The main attractions in Mexico City are the Palace of Bellas Artes, a beautiful white, marble palace located in the center of the city; the Plaza de Las Tres Culturas, which shows three very important facets of Mexican architecture: pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern; the Castillo de Chapultepec, an old castle and former residence for the Mexican presidents; as well as the Mexico City Cathedral and Villa of Guadalupe, which showcase the city's colonial heritage.
Not far from downtown, you can find the pyramids of the sun and the moon in Teotihuacan (45 minute drive from downtown). The pyramid in Cuicuilco, located in the southern part of the city, features a peculiar circular structure, half hidden by the lava that came down from the Xitle volcano more than three thousand years ago. All of the beautiful city's unique history can be experienced at the Museum of Anthropology.
Mexico City’s nightlife is filled with lively bars, discos, and mariachis! The Colonia Condesa and Insurgentes districts feature a wide variety of nightlife activities.
Need to shop? The many options to do so downtown and on Mazarik Street will not disappoint you. For music and theater lovers, Centro Cultural Telmex showcases famous Broadway plays, while Auditorio Nacional offers the best concerts in the city.
Our language school in Mexico attaches great importance to first-class teaching and an efficient teaching method. All courses cover both grammar (approx. 30%) and conversation training (approx. 70%). Both aspects are important if you want to master a foreign language well. The grammar forms the cornerstone of every language and the correct use and fluent speaking is practiced through targeted exercises and role plays. In addition, the students are given tasks to train reading, writing and listening skills.
