Becari Conzatti Spanish School in Oaxaca offers Spanish for Children for ages as young as 6-12 years.
We are committed to teaching Spanish to children through high-quality Spanish language immersion programs that help them learn in a fun, musical, and interactive way.
The teachers incorporate games and physical activities that promote both enjoyment and learning. With emphasis on cultural immersion, we ensure that each child is challenged at their own learning level. This is done by utilizing interesting and diverse themes, such as animals, ecology, and ocean life. Picture and word cards are frequently used to teach vocabulary and structure.
Instructors are experienced, inspirational, and native Spanish speakers. In our program, teachers will guide kids in their classes based on their starting level and their ability to stay focused on the new material. Classes are interactive and will prepare children for conversational Spanish.
This program is also very popular with parents who want to learn or improve their Spanish and want their kids to do so as well. Parents and kids can live together with native Mexican families in the homestay accommodations.

The Zapotec language(s) are a group of closely related indigenous Mesoamerican languages spoken by the Zapotec people from Mexico's southwestern-central highlands region. Present-day numbers of native speakers are estimated at over half a million, with the majority inhabiting the state of Oaxaca. The Zapotec we teach at Becari is from the Valley of Oaxaca.
Zapotec languages are tonal, as are Otomanguean languages generally. They differ in the number of contrasting tones they have. Zapotec languages vary considerably. Some characteristics of Zapotec grammar common to the language family (though not necessarily present in all members) are:
an extensive third person pronoun system based on noun classes such as divinity, babies, animals, objects (inanimate), etc.; a distinction in the first person plural ("we") as to inclusive (including the hearer(s)) and exclusive (not including the hearer(s)); a frequent under-specificity of singular/plural distinctions.
The cost is the same as for Regular Spanish lessons.
