Student Testimonials

The staff at Livit work hard to create an atmosphere to encourage and cement Spanish language communication and retention all while cultivating a familiar energy - not difficult since the large school building doubles as their home! I have attended five Spanish schools in Mexico and Guatemala and LIVIT Immersion Center is definitely on the top most of the spectrum with innovative techniques like preparing meals together, offering cultural excursions with local college student ambassadors, and inclusive field trips to outstanding sites like the archaeological wonder of Cantona. Take advantage of living in the beautiful city of Puebla and staying with the gracious host families Livit will arrange for you. Be sure to give the school/house dog Beluga a scratch for me!

Of six language schools I've attended in Mexico over my lifetime, Livit was the best.  The family I stayed with was terrific, the lessons were excellent and the excursions were very interesting.  I've learned a lot and plan to come back next year.  I highly recommend this school.

Livit Immersion Center provided everything they promised and more.  The classes were very helpful; the afternoon excursions were very informative.  I learned a lot about Mexican history and culture.

It was a wonderful experience for a beginner as we were (wife and I).  Useful learning of Spanish at our rate of learning with attentive instructors made our time beneficial.  Puebla is a great city and the school is well run and exceeded our expectations.

It was great to experience another culture and live Spanish first hand.  I would like to come back to further my learning.

It was an extensive two weeks in which I learned a lot and laughed a lot.  Knowledgeable and caring instructors.  Puebla is a great city in which to study Spanish --not too many tourists.

I recommend Livit Immersion Center for anyone who is looking to learn Spanish in a supportive and stimulating environment.  This is the kind of school that makes you feel less like a tourist and more like a guest in a beautiful
area of Mexico.

I was embarrassed to speak and talk with people before I started with Livit.  Livit made a program for me and worked with me to lose my fear of talking and understanding people.  I currently use Spanish at work and enjoy
practicing Spanish with my husband and Latin American friends.

Going into the program, I didn't know what to expect with regards to the accommodations, location of the school , and modern necessities, (high speed Internet connections). I was extremely please to learn, that I had the ability to stay plugged in to certain needs, and still benefit from truly sinking into the culture of Mexico. The week went very fast which is always a great indication of a great experience. I have made recommendations to co-workers who have a need  or interest in learning Spanish that they spend a week or more with Livit.

The whole week was better than my experience in Guanajuato, and better than my expectations.  I feel very lucky to have found this school, to have stayed with the family I stayed with and to have met the people I met.  Scott and Maru not only taught me, but made the experience fun, and I truly hope I can return.

Personal attention is what Livit is all about.  A very clean organized centrally located facility facilitates learning.

I loved the program and brushed up on and learned a enough Spanish during my short program to pass a proficiency exam and land a new job. Thanks Livit.

This is the 7th time I have attended schools like this in 4 countries and have never received a better value or had a better experience!  It's an all day fun-filled experience.  You really learn and have fun doing it

The most beneficial language learning experience I have been involved with in the four summers that I have studied Spanish.  The conversations focused on real language skills, not just grammar

I very much enjoyed my time at Livit Immersion Center. My Spanish has improved dramatically.  I am confidant that I can now understand the guys I work with and have them understand me. The staff at Livit was very attentive and effective to my specific needs.  The city of Puebla has much fascinating history to compliment the study of the Spanish language.

Greg Hill USA December 7, 2015

The instruction was both professional and tailored to my personal needs.  A ´working lunch´ (either at a restaurant or cooked at the school ) plus 2 hours with a guide to show you the city or just sit in a café or park and practice Spanish, gave me 3.5 -4 hours per day of practical conversation practice that is so important for learning a language and building confidence.  I am already planning on returning to Livit in the future to continue my learning and to visit my new ´old friends´ I have met here.

I had a great time in Puebla, learning Spanish.  I felt like I learned real Spanish, not like they teach in my university in Hanover.  I have come to Livit now two years in a row for 3 weeks each and can now speak confidently among Spanish speakers.  I've strongly recommended this program to all of my coworkers, friends and family.

I have learned in many institutes in Spain and Latin America.  Livit Immersion Center was the only one where I found what I needed: to learn Spanish.  In just four weeks, I've learned more with Livit than many years combined.  The small groups and the personal learning mixed with all the practice finally helped me to reach my goals with Spanish.  I recommend this to everyone who really wants to learn.  Don't waste your time and money with other products or schools!

I had the time of my life!  What a great way to learn Spanish and mexican culture.  The owners, Scott & Maru were so helpful.  I also loved my family, so caring and fun.

The school is very well organized, the guest family was very generous, and the are many varied activities. Between meals with the family, classes, and afternoon activities I was speaking more than 10 hours a day.  It was the best thing that ever happened to my Spanish.

John Fox USA December 7, 2015

Livit is a complete immersion into Spanish.  More valuable to the experience than the excellent classes are the lunches together, the one-on-one guided conversations, city tours, excursions, and many other opportunities to use the language naturally, making Livit a very unique and great school.  This is my fourth "immersion" experience, but the others were just, "wading" relative to Livit.  The school is spacious comfortable, clean, and the staff is fantastic!  If one has just one place to choose for a Spanish Immersion experience, I don't know why one would choose any other place.

This is my second time staying at the Livit Immersion Center.  The teachers are dedicated, the classes are conducted at the student's pace and the atmosphere is relaxing.  The homestays, lunches, and excursions are integrated into and efficient, fun, full-time learning experience.

I cannot imagine a better way to spend two months.  The teachers were excellent.  The city is beautiful and I really felt that I was part of my host family.  I have learned so much and my Spanish has improved tremendously.  I strongly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn or improve their Spanish.

If you are serious about Spanish, then the Livit Immersion Center is for you!  My wife and daughter attended the school also, we were all in separate classes.  We all agreed that this was the best school.  My wife has been to four different immersion schools.  My daughter majored in Spanish in the university and uses it everyday for her job and has studied at six language schools in 3 different countries. The instruction and facilities were excellent. We especially appreciated the small class sizes. We will return.
