VLC, which is a branch of Vancouver English Centre in Vancouver, Canada, is certified by the Secretaria de Educaciςn Pωblica (SEP).  Formal certificates and transcripts are issued from SEP for each student completing at least one level of VLC's Spanish Program.

Our teachers, among the best qualified in Mexico, constantly reinforce our "Spanish Only" policy.  Our small classes offer individual attention to our students.   The sophisticated curriculum is supplemented by special textbooks that we have developed ourselves.

The comfortable environment helps people learn Spanish in a fun and entertaining way.  We use the most modern equipment for language teaching, as well as a wide variety of activities such as role-plays, videos, games, interviews and conversation.  Classroom instruction focuses on the practical, natural use of language.

Spanish Language Program:  Students may choose to study either Grammar or Conversation for 10 hours per week or they may study both language components together in the Intensive Spanish Program (20 hours per week).  Our Spanish curriculum is carefully laid out to ensure a natural progression with constant opportunities for conversation. 

English Language Programs:  This program is designed to develop your language skills so they can be applied in a practical way to real situations.  Videotapes, role plays, class interaction and group participation are everyday methods of teaching in our classrooms.

TEFL Certificate Program: Many of our students are also interested in becoming English as a Foreign Language teachers.  We offer an intensive 4-week TEFL Certificate Program, which fully prepares the students to teach adults of all English levels. 

Other Programs:  VLC also offers Business Spanish, private tutoring, English, and  Japanese programs.  VLC is affiliated with Vancouver International College of Guadalajara, which is an all-English kindergarten and primary school in Guadalajara.

Facilities: The school is centrally located in a nice district only a short walk from Guadalajara's historic downtown, shops, restaurants and other services.

Accommodation:  VLC boasts some of the best homestays in Guadalajara.  Families are carefully screened for suitability, and they display the famous warm Mexican hospitality.  We also have a few apartments available for students who prefer a more independent lifestyle.

Activity Coordinators:  We have an extensive after-school leisure activity program, that offers exposure to Mexican culture, including weekend trips to nearby villages.  These extra-curricular activities offer the students an opportunity to practice their new language skills in a natural setting.
