About Us


Our country it's one of those countries where beauty is exalted. Land of Gods, where your lungs fill with pure oxygen, wet earthy smell, adobe houses that tell you stories and give you inner peace, mariachis that blow your ears away with the noise of pure happiness, dark faces that smile directly to your eyes and pour their heart out, black eyes that hypnotize with sweetness, corn tortillas dancing on the comal, ready to be eaten, to be enjoyed, tacos and salsas that fire up your tongue and clean your sinuses, cafe de talega  that opens up your senses, dark cerveza that quenches your thirst, Catrina and the verb ESTAR that make fun of death. Welcome to Mexico where everything will happen Manaña!.

Hablando Mexicano

Hablando Mexicano is a small school located in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Ivonne Benitez, founder and owner of the school, said, “She named the school Hablando Mexicano because they teach you more than simply grammar, verbs, or vocabulary: We teach you Mexicano. Our objective is to immerse you in the language through little sayings, jokes, slang. It is a personalized school where they teach you what natives use in Mexico, and even better in Baja California Sur. It will show you in a practical way how Spanish speakers use the phrases, verbs, even how to curse and when to use it, etc. We also teach about Mexican culture. Ready to sign up?
