About Mexico City

This city truly has it all! With a romantic history that spans pre-hispanic, Spanish colonial, and modern Mexican, world renown museums, a vibrant and youthful design atmosphere, add to that one of the world’s most exciting places to eat combined with the warmth and grace of the Mexican people, well, it does indeed have it all….

Chosen #1 in the New York Times top destinations for 2016 and now ranked up there with Paris, London, Tokyo, and New York as one of the world’s great cities, it is very colorful and radiates energy. The Greater Mexico City population is estimated at 21.2 million people, making it the second-largest metropolitan area of the western hemisphere, behind New York City, and by far the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world. Much safer than back in the 1990’s and considered the safest of the larger Mexican cities, there are many options to getting around, including Uber and a city-wide bicycle rental system.

Oldest Capital City in the Americas

Mexico’s capital is the oldest capital city in the Americas, originally founded on an island of Lake Texcoco by the Aztecs in 1325 as Tenochtitlan, which was almost completely destroyed by the Spanish in 1521. The Spanish brutally subdued the Aztecs, drained the lake, and built their own colonial-style city literally on top of the Aztec ruins. As of 1585 it was officially known as the “Ciudad de México”.

Mexico City served as the political, administrative and financial center of a major part of the Spanish colonial empire for centuries, leaving the 500 year-old city center loaded with historic gems like the Palace of Fine Arts, the National Palace, the Castle in Chapultepec Park, and the Metropolitan Cathedral, the largest in the Americas built directly on top of the Aztec ruins.

The Heart & Hub of Mexico

There is no shortage of excellent museums, including the world renown National Anthropology Museum, and, of course, works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera can be found throughout the city. And undoubtedly, there is no more exciting place to eat!

Our properties in Mexico City are spacious and elegant and located in the best neighborhoods or “colonias” near to the city center, including Polanco, La Roma, and La Condesa. And as stated above, weather is mild all year ‘round due to the elevation with the warmest months being April and May and the coolest December and January.

Mexico City has so much to do, that one month staying there was not long enough. While many people don't think about going to the interior of Mexico since beaches are what is common, Mexico City really has lots to offer. I was surprised by how high the city is located by altitude, so it wasn't as hot as I imagined. I quickly picked up Spanish as fast as I got there.

How can I prepare in advance for my Luxury Language Learning Experience?
The truth is that you don’t have to do anything other than bringing an open mind and a positive attitude, and our experienced language instructors, cultural immersion activities, and time will do the rest!  But if you would like to get a jump on things we suggest the following:

1. Practice your listening skills using one or both of the following methods:
a. If your TV service provider has any programming in the language that you plan to learn, watch and listen to those programs! News programs are best because they identify a theme and stick to it for a while, compared to movies or sitcoms that have more complex themes and dialogue.  But any exposure is good.

b. There are mobile applications that allow you to listen to radio stations from all over the world. One example is an iPhone app called “TuneIn”.  Thus, if you’re learning Italian, for example, you can listen to Radio Rai or another Italian station.  Sometimes it’s news, other times it may be a soccer match, but plug in your headphones and go for a walk and let your mind do the rest! In both cases it’s not a problem if you don’t understand, just pay close attention and your mind will start to decipher repetitive sounds.  Pick out a word and look it up if you can; be interactive.

2. Read up on your destination and become familiar with the sites and customs. The more interest you take in the culture the more natural it will feel to begin learning and practicing the language.

Every individual’s language level is different and we also each learn differently. How can language instructors possibly sort this all out?
Having a personal one-on-one language instructor solves a lot of issues as that’s exactly what they are trained to do, namely, evaluate the student’s level and understand how they learn (and what are their interests).  Our language instructors are each unique but share certain traits such as:

They are handpicked and very experienced in teaching adults. There will be an evaluation, either prior to departure or once on site, to establish the language learning level. They focus heavily on conversation, and cover grammar as is needed to address practical needs and uses throughout the day; the curriculum and activities are designed for practical use. And they will adapt to every individual’s way of learning and interests as they get to know them over time.

What is the recommended length of stay in a destination?
One to three months is ideal to realize significant language improvement, but we will build a Customized Experience for as little as two weeks if necessary. Another option would be to concentrate on one language but spend time in two locations, such as Paris and Bordeaux, Madrid and San Sebastian, Rome and Siena, etc.

Do you book flights?
We do not so flights should be booked through your travel agent, travel website, or directly with the airlines.
expand_more
Do you book train tickets?
We do not book train tickets, though we can advise on trains when that is your choice for in-country travel.  You may also get help through the dedicated concierge once onsite.

How can I pay?
You may pay by credit card or bank/electronic wire transfer.
expand_more
Do I need travel insurance?
Travel insurance is for your protection, in case of unforeseen events causing trip cancellation/interruption, or any medical expenses during your trip. We strongly recommend that you purchase comprehensive travel insurance, which may include coverage options from basic trip cancellation insurance to full coverage with emergency medical assistance. Travel Insurance gives you peace of mind and safeguards your investment in the event of a cancellation prior to or during your trip.  You can find travel insurance plans with any of the following:  Travel Guard, Allianz, and Travelex.

What are the departure dates for your language programs?
Key to the success of the Language & Luxury methodology is one on one language instruction, so the program is a customized experience rather than a group tour.  Thus, the dates are flexible and totally up to you.  You simply select the destination and provide us the arrival and departure dates.
expand_more
Are meals included with your language program?
We do not include meals in the standard package, as enjoying food is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the local culture!  We do provide restaurant guides and a dedicated concierge service for restaurant recommendations and reservations.

And as part of the customization, we will offer other options for dining, such as a private chef, cooking courses and wine tastings; and, of course, our properties are equipped with full kitchens.

Will I be able to fully speak a foreign language?
It can take many months to become truly fluent in a language depending on the individuals ability, motivation and dedication. Our language learning methodology is superior to traditional language learning methods and you will learn faster by using the one on one language instruction and cultural immersion that Language & Luxury™ provides.
