“I would like to say definitely that Lagos Language School is the most reliable and professional language school in the city.  I learned Spanish faster than I had expected!  Here you will experience real Mexico.”

   -Louis Moreno,  Ft. Worth, Tx.


“This is a great opportunity to express my gratitude to Lagos Language School.  I moved to a better position in my job after having studied for only three months.  The staff was a great support and the costs are very affordable!  You must know this experience!!"

    -L. Lewis Roses,  St. Louis, Mo.


"After a three week beginning Spanish course (3 hours a day),  we have learned a lot in a short period of time!  Dr. Spurgeon was very helpful and patient.  He is very knowledgeable and provided much insight on local terminology.  After only 3 weeks we have completed the first semester of college Spanish.  We highly recommend Lagos Language School and Dr. Spurgeon as our Spanish instructor." 

   -Lorenzo and Joleen C., Kansas  City, Mo.


"I'm Chinese and arrived in Mexico from China last April, and started my Spanish course right away,because I didn't speak any words of spanish , maybe just  " hola".  But in five months, I finished 3 full years of College Level Spanish with my teacher Dr. Charles. And now, I speak fluent Spanish in my work here in a Mexican company.  My friends told me that I am smart, but I think actually I had an excellent teacher!"

   -Eden Lin, Lagos de Moreno, Mexico




March 2009 - Prior to attending the Lagos Language School my Spanish was at best mediocre.  After just two weeks (20 hrs per week) of classes I have noticed a vast improvement.  I plan on attending more classes at the Lagos Language School     -Michael C.,  Aguascalientes, MX.  Ret. U.S. Govt.


May-June 2010

The site of the class was very comfortable, in a pleasant garden area.  I found both professors to be exceptional!  They were very professional and seemed interested in the subject matter, wherever the path happened to go.                     -Diane E.  Washington, D.C.

NEW Super Intense Conversational Spanish Course !!!

One of the results of our staff meeting today is a new 2 week Spanish course, more intensive than a normal 2 week course.  One of the benefits of this design is more practicum and more hours in learning situations with less housing costs and less time "away from home" for busy individuals.


Basically this is the design: 

   a. Each day has a specific theme. For example Monday's theme would be  

      "Cordialidad". This would entail meeting people, leaving the presence of

      a person or place, and presentations.

   b. Tuesdays theme would be public transportation.  Wednesday's would be

      eating out. Thursday would be "the home".  Friday would be the Park.

   c. The proposed daily schedule would be 9am to 12 noon theory (classroom

       setting) with a 15 to 20 minute break.  The afternoon session would be

       from 4pm to 7pm.  This practicum would be outside the classroom, 

       taking place in various settings around the city.

   d. Instead of 4 hours of daily instruction,  it would be 6 hours, or 30 hours a

       week instead of 20 hours.  The student will be free from 12 noon until

       4pm.  Monday through Friday.

   e. Sundays would be completely free.  On Saturdays, planned activities

       would be available for those students who wish to participate.

   f. The cost of this 2 week course would be the same as the 3 week Spanish

      course of 60 contact hours but the 60 hours completed in only 2 weeks.

      The cost per instructional hour remains the same.  The savings is in

       housing, meals, and time.  In addition, there is considerably more


   g. NOTE: This same daily schedule can be applied to longer periods of

       time, thus completing more instruction in less time. For example, the six

       week course can be completed in only 4 weeks; and the 4 week

       course in only two and a half weeks!  This is a great opportunity

       for those with a limited time frame!

Official Mexican Holidays will be observed in all cases.
They are:
                      January 1          New Years Day
                      February 5         Day of the Constitution
                      April 18 varies:     Good Friday
                      May 1                Labor Day
                      September 16     Independence Day
                      November 20       Revolution of 1910

Learn Professional Spanish where it is spoken, in Old Mexico;
and it is best learned where it is best taught!
