Many people travel to Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras to learn Spanish. And Merida has its fair share of language learning options – There are quite a few well know institutes for language learning here, there are also some excellent local schools, and then we also have a preponderance of individuals teaching Spanish.
I have taken a number of Tertulias with Marina. A Tertulia is sort of a special interest discussion group. Marina would prepare info, often including handouts and/or a powerpoint presentation and we would have discussions on a variety of topics; always in Spanish. Whenever an issue of a word, or phrasing came up we would stop and address that as well.
Anyway, Marina is expanding and now is offering a variety
of language and culture learning options.
