Living it is learning it! Completely immersing yourself in the Spanish culture is the best way to improve your Spanish skills, and do it fast: by staying in a host family and living together with the locals you will be able to learn faster and continuously improve your Spanish. You will also practice what you have learned during your classes just through the experiences you will have outside of classes while travelling in and around Puerto Vallarta. Each of these opportunities will allow you to assimilate the language in a deeper and more long lasting way than if you just took Spanish classes back home.
