Kukulcan was founded in 2000 to provide high quality Spanish language immersion programs in a professional, friendly, and safe environment. We are an Educational Community, integrating the school, professors, staff, host families, local professionals and businesses into our academic and cultural activities.
Instructors And Professional Staff
Kukulcan’s instructors are native-speakers of Spanish with extensive experience teaching Spanish as a second language to international students. They’re trained in the latest methodology, and regularly participate in professional workshops to keep their skills up to date. They are professional, friendly, and caring. They make students feel comfortable in the classroom, while inspiring them to do their best work. Classes are conducted entirely in Spanish to guarantee the best immersion experience. Even beginners will be able to use Spanish in practical, real-life situations to communicate with native speakers within a few weeks of intensive language training. More advanced students will see their Spanish fluency improve rapidly, thanks to our communicative approach to teaching.
Our professional support staff is available on site to help you with anything that comes up during your stay. We arrange family stays with host families, organize excursions, and make recommendations for things to see and do in the area.
