“I loved studying at Intercultura. After studying at language schools in Mexico, Spain, Perú, and Uruguay, Intercultura is the best school I have attended. It’s not only because the instruction is the best, but the administration is top notch. I always recommend Intercultura to friends who want to study Spanish!”

“Many thanks to all my teachers:
Carmen, Isabel, Bayron, Farid, Farid, Nelsy, Nelson, Ilsen, Iris, Maria, also the receptionists, the cleaning staff, dance and cooking teachers, the security guards at night and Santiago.

I can't say anything but thank you. Thank you for this amazing time here in Samara. This adventure could not have been better. Thank you for your flexibility, kindness and, most importantly, all the patience you bring with you.
I learned many new things here, not only a new language, but thanks to your excellent program I was able to get to know a new culture and many wonderful people.
I would really recommend this school to anyone, because this experience is priceless. The three months went by so fast that I will probably come back soon.
I am excited for the next time. I will miss Samara.”
