"Small, but nice" is probably the best description for Montañita! Montañita is a small town on the Pacific coast, with a large and diverse range of leisure and relaxation activities. The town is well known and popular among backpackers and in the international surfing scene. Montañita is a paradise for everyone who loves a relaxed atmosphere and wants to relax on the beautiful sandy beaches.
There is also a lot of action: It is said that surfing is not a sport, but rather a way of life there!
The houses and small shops in Montañita are made of bamboo or other woods which gives the place a very special charm.
Montañita has wonderful weather all year round and lots of sunshine. In the village itself and in the surrounding area you will find plenty of opportunities for sports or cultural activities (surfing, riding and hiking trips, bike tours, swimming, diving, cultural and archaeological visits, etc.).
The bicycle is the most important form of transportation in Montañita. Bicycle rickshaws are also common there, for those who don't want to pedal on their own.
Attention night owls! Montañita is also known for its exciting nightlife parties.
The Spanish courses in Montañita are divided into two main components - grammar and language use. During the first part of the course, the correct use of grammar is explained and practiced. The second part of the lesson serves to train grammar and language usage. Various exercises, role plays and conversation training are part of the classes.
On the first day of school there will be a placement test to determine your language skills. This is used to classify the appropriate language level. There are 6 levels of difficulty (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) according to the CEFR (Common European Framework of References for Languages).
Our teachers in Montañita are qualified and highly motivated. They are friendly and enjoy teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

At the end of the course, a certificate will be issued to confirm your language level.

Some students learn best when they enjoy the full attention of the teacher. If you are one of these people, the one-to-one course is for you. Since your Spanish teacher adapts 100% to your language needs, interests and weaknesses, the individual course guarantees very quick and efficient learning progress.
