Myriam¡Vive México! is a Spanish learning program that is dedicated to spreading the knowledge and appreciation of Mexican culture and the Spanish language into English-speaking populations.  We strive to provide our students with a fun, stimulating learning environment, while maintaining a uniquely small class size for one-on-one interaction.  We have created multiple curricula for all levels of Spanish, from introductory classes for every day conversation to advanced grammar classes, with the intention of developing your skills in listening comprehension, speaking, reading and vocabulary.  Our goal is to help you become not only bilingual, but also bicultural through the incorporation of activities, events and tours that immerse you in the Mexican culture.  All of these are displayed throughout the site, so feel free to browse and enjoy!



¡Vive México! was founded in 2002 as one of the first Tucson language schools with the goal to offer a unique Spanish program and an interesting extracurricular/cultural program. ¡Vive México! is a small and friendly language school with an easy and relaxed atmosphere. Classes take place in a home style environment to enjoy the warmth and hospitality of the Mexican culture . ¡Vive México! has carefully selected each member of its teaching staff, all having experience in teaching Spanish as a Second Language, as well as cultural knowledge and experience. Qualified and committed teachers are a vital condition for a successful learning environment.

¡Vive México! has programs for all levels of study, from the beginner to the advanced student. You may study individually, or you can be placed in a group with up to six other students of your same skill level. Students may register in one or several groups. All levels of instruction begin every six weeks throughout the year. The decision as to the level for which you qualify will be determined in a personal interview upon registration .

¡Vive México! is located on the northwest area of Tucson, in Oro Valley. Classes and most activities are held in a private home.
