    Very unprofessional
    I was in Frida Spanish School in July of 2016. It can’t be called school, it’s just a business. You pay money but don’t get anything for it. The school doesn’t have a sign. It’s an ordinary apartment with only one bathroom and without a cafeteria or a meeting place. In the lecture-rooms there aren’t any computers or CD-players for classes. The street noise is annoying. The school offers 20 classes a week, but it actually includes breaks that can last up to 30 minutes every day, so you lose about 2 hours a week. The teachers can be late for class if they need to solve problems in the office. The website of the school describes different options for leisure and cultural programs. It’s a lie! I was there for 3 weeks and they offered me only one trip to the Pyramids for a very high price. If you want to book a transfer service, you’ll waste your money. I was given wrong information and waited for 2 hours for the driver. Then I found out that it was an ordinary taxi that costs much less than I had paid. There are very few groups in the school. In one group there are students of very different Spanish levels. My teacher was awful. She didn’t correct students’ errors in oral speech and couldn’t explain the words’ meanings in Spanish, only with English translation! She used to sit in class and didn’t give us any creative tasks. There weren’t any textbooks in class and the given materials were full of errors! You’d better choose another school!

    Excellent teachers, extracurriculars do not exist.
    I picked this school for myself and two friends because we are all at different levels of Spanish. The extracurricular programs that we were supposed to do together never materialized. It is an excellent school with excellent teachers but you will sit in a classroom four hours a day. You will have to do your own Mexico City tours and weekend excursions. You will need to figure that into your budget.

    Don't throw away your money!
    I paid for 4 weeks of Advanced classes with this school - after a week and a half I was incredibly disappointed with the lack of curriculum and organization. After sending emails and trying to talk directly with the director, I was essentially ignored and told I wouldn't get a refund. Not once did they address any of my issues in regards to the quality of the education at the school - just flat out made the conversation about the money. When I told them I was going to write my comments on social media about my experience, the tone changed and the all of a sudden they wanted to offer me private classes. I was so appalled by the way they treated me, I never wanted to step foot back in there. It is obvious that this school is simply a business, looking to make money in any way possible. There is little to no concern in regards to the quality of the classes as well as the overall satisfaction of their students. If you're looking for a reputable Spanish language program - check out CEPE (El Centro de Enseñanza para Extranjeros) at UNAM. Don't throw away your money on Frida Language School.

    Real Life experience
    I am always shocked when I see comments like George.G. I lived in several countries and I think that the key factor is to be open minded and have a real want of living and understanding the culture. Mexico is a developing country and I think that when you check out the Frida Spanish School website you can easily think that you won't be in a 5 star language school as they are also very competitive on price compare to other schools in Mexico City. I studed at Frida when I first arrived in Mexico and then lived there for 4 years actually working for one of the major language courses overseas organisation. On my opinion Frida is a wonderful schools for open minded people and not for people looking for the same lifestyle as in their own country when they are overseas. I met people from oround the world in that school, I went to bars, pubs, azteca stadium for a couple of soccer games, teachers began my friends and went to their family, they touch me about their culture. What is the most important thing in this kind of courses/experience? The type of books you are going to use or the lifetime experience? I prefer the lifetime experience. Btw you will never learn a language better than interacting with local people which I think you never did when you were in Mexico. So please George G open your mind or stay in the US. Great day to everyone. Life is too short, don't waste it, go travelling. Cheers

    If you can possibly find another school for a short-term Spanish class, you should investigate it rather than this one. OR you should take PRIVATE LESSONS at Frida School, which I found to be far superior to the confused and disorganized class sessions.The only thing that went fairly well at this school during my two weeks of attendance was the pickup at the airport, by a cab driver that had spent many years in the U.S. and spoke English like an American. The school was not able to find a family for me to stay with (they gave up looking even before I arrived), so I ended up at the nearby Hotel Roosevelt.The physical facilities at Frida School are practically nonexistent. There is no common area for students to gather, and there was no welcoming feeling for the new students. The social activities were nonexistent (so plan on being on your own to explore the city). Be sure to bring your own textbook from home so you can study outside of class; the teachers did not use the assigned textbook but rather scoffed at it.The beginning-intermediate class was a shambles, the teacher being not much more than a "pal" to the most vociferous students in her class.Again, if you HAVE to study in Mexico City, look elsewhere OR take the private lessons.
