There is no better or more important time then right now to learn Spanish. We believe that there are few places more welcoming, interesting, and energizing than the picturesque town of San Cristobal de las Casas located in Chiapas, Mexico. At SanCris we know that learning a language involves time, dedication, and work, but you will need a guide, a teacher to help show you the way. Language learning is a journey we go on together, and along the way we build a relationship, go through hard stretches, have major breakthroughs, and end with a new language and a new perspective. 

At the SanCris Language School, we offer a personalized learning program with one-on-one or group instruction for students of all levels. As every good school knows, our biggest resources are our teachers who dedicate their time, knowledge and hearts here at the school. Our teachers are well trained, each with years of experience teaching Spanish, and of course all of our teachers are local, native speakers.

We use a variety of different teaching methods and techniques, to help ensure that the lessons stay fun and engaging. We also know that not everybody learns the same. We customise your lessons so you get the most out of every hour. Additionally we use variety of activities to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world. You will not remain within the bubble of the school here as it is important we help prepare you to interact in the world around you.

We are friendly and enthusiastic, and you will feel that energy the second you arrive. We also know that travelling can be intimidating and hard, especially if you don’t speak the language. We want you to know that we will be your home-base during your stay in San  Cristóbal de las Casas. We will help you get here, answer any questions, and tell you all the things you need to know. Most importantly, we can help arrange accommodation so you know you have a place to rest your head.

We are a community and we have students from all over the world. You will get a chance to get to know your fellow students as well as teachers during class breaks and cultural activities that happen a few times a week. Strong bonds and friendships are made here every week. All of us at SanCris are on this journey together and we are with you every step of the way. We will see you soon!

❝If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.❞ ‒Nelson Mandela

"Teachers were great. I have studied a few languages and I know it can be difficult to have a conversation with little vocabulary, but Niko and Ivan made it easy, fun, and comfortable."
