NRCSA Center: Instituto de Lenguas - San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico  


About the NRCSA Center

Our School Instituto de Lenguas has been teaching Spanish to students from all over the world since 1993. They pride themselves on a friendly and relaxed study atmosphere, and do their best to make each student's time with them as fun as it is rewarding.
The school aims to make every student's stay as successful and pleasant as possible. That includes conducting high quality language classes, providing accommodation with Mexican host families where students feel comfortable, and giving any assistance needed regarding travel, leisure, and other personal needs of the student.
All teachers are native Spanish speakers, specially trained in teaching Spanish as a second language and are of Mexican descent.

San Cristobal de las Casas with a population of 100,000, lies in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, high in the mountains surrounded by pine forests. With its cobblestone streets and its red-tile roofs, San Cristóbal is a mix of 16th century Spanish influences and a vivid, colorful indigenous culture. Beautiful churches, cathedrals and buildings abound, along with the largest indigenous market in northern America where the indigenous people from surrounding villages come daily to sell their fruits, vegetables and crafts.

The city boasts a variety of vegetarian restaurants and European style cafés, as well as small eateries that serve the local foods. Day visits to indigenous villages are popular and at night music is played and enjoyed in several different restaurants and bars.

The climate in San Cristobal is particular to its region. During the rainy season (May to October), the climate is mild with usual sunny days, but rainy afternoons. During the dry season (October to May), beautiful, sunny and warm days are common, with the nights being clear and chilly.
