:: FREETIME ACTIVITIES IN GUADALAJARA MEXICO
In order to enhance your Spanish learning experience, the following extracurricular activities are provided as an optional part of your learning. You may choose the activities that are of most interest to you. The following extracurricular activities are currently offered:
Exciting activities during the summer months are the walking and bus tours. They are open to the public so that students can visit with other vacationers. The tour visits many places and sites of interest around the city. Since Guadalajara sports a wealth of beautiful architecture and historical buildings, these tours are very worthwhile. Most of the sites visited are located in the downtown area, as is our school. There are also tours to other parts of the city and some little known, but very important sites. The tour guide informs participants about the significance and cultural points of each site. The best thing about these tours is that they are completely FREE. They are conducted on various days of the week, during both the morning and afternoon.
Would you be interested in learning the craft of ceramics during your stay in Guadalajara? This is just another one of the extracurricular activities that may be of interest to you. Our school of Spanish in Guadalajara works with a local ceramic school that can teach you and give you pointers on how to create your own works of art. The lessons are provided FREE of charge, students only need to buy all the necessary materials. Classes are held in the afternoons and you may attend as long as you wish during the class hours. Do not let this opportunity to learn the art of ceramics pass you by.
In addition to the wide variety of cultural events that take place here in the historical downtown area, which are always free of charge, our school organizes field trips to certain areas of special interest. Flexibility is a key feature in this program. Years of experience have taught us that not all students enjoy the same activities outside the classroom. There is a small additional charge for these excursions to cover the cost of transportation and the tour guide; our school does not receive any part of this fee. Excursions are organized in and out of the city, enabling students to compare the enthusiasm and bustle of modern Mexico with the most provincial countryside. Students are responsible for their own meals during the excursions.
Free guitar lessons are offered at our school. These lessons are conducted in our facilities in the evenings, on Saturdays. Students must either bring their own guitar or rent one in the city. Lessons consist of many of the most traditional Mexican ballads and songs.
Salsa is a street version of Mambo. Salsa reflects the joy and abandon of the tropical days.
