We here at LC/NA direct your attention—make that atención—to a wonderful, LGBT-friendly Spanish-language program in Cuernavaca, Mexico. As the website reads, CETLALIC is
the most progressive Spanish language immersion school in Mexico, is located in the City of Eternal Spring, Cuernavaca. CETLALIC offers small Spanish classes and homestays with Mexican families in a community-minded environment. We provide a place for cultural exchange with a focus on mutual understanding and social justice issues in Mexico.
Each year, the school offers two special programs for those interested in learning about the situation of LGBT life in Mexico through the study of language and cultural exchange. Although one can attend any of the regular classes at the school, the LGBT programs provide a particular focus on LGBT issues. In addition to intensive language instruction, the classes include guest speakers, lectures, roundtable discussions, field trips, museum visits, videos, and encounters with local community groups, all aimed at increasing understanding of the cultural context of gay and lesbian identity in Mexico.
See here for more information, including schedule.
All of the school’s language teachers and host homes are LGBT-friendly.
The school has been strongly recommended by several members of LC/NA!
