Join an exclusive group of up to 10 participants for six days of intensive Spanish at a magnificent mansion in Mexico City.
This isn't the old boring class in a laid-back Central American town. We've rethought the entire concept to deliver a high-impact coaching experience focused on transformation, boutique accommodations and great food.
Our elite coaches will take a cohort of only 10 participants through a rigorous training that has been customized for each one of them. Seven days later you won't believe your level of verbal self-confidence.
The Fluenz digital program has been deployed at the Navy Special Warfare Command since 2009. Along with our clients at the UN, Google and other global organizations, the Navy relies on our unique approach to languages.
It all begins in our beautifully restored mansions in Mexico City’s best neighborhoods. Run by a premier boutique hotel chain, we take over entire houses to create a perfect environment for the immersions. We’re currently located in a grand art deco mansion a few blocks away from Frida Kahlo’s home.
The six day/seven nights immersion with our elite coaches combines group and intense one-on-one sessions, rigorous hour by hour assessments, recovery time, really good yoga, and great food made with local ingredients and health in mind.
In the evenings we'll host you in some of the city's best restaurants (and impossible reservations), take you on exclusive art tours and bring some of the city's sharpest minds for private talks. You'll experience Mexico City like never before.
Your driver will pick you up at the airport and we'll take it from there. Seven days later, you won't believe the transformation.
Sonia Gil, Fluenz founder
We begin with an extensive assessment to understand your Spanish, your objectives, and the ideal path for you. We then create your very own program.
By zeroing in on the specific grammar and syntax that are blocking your fluency we give you a path to accelerate your verbal expression and retention.
We specialize in the kind of high-impact coaching developed for elite athletes, sustained over several days, and calibrated to achieve your objectives.
If you've never studied Spanish before, our unique map through Spanish for English speakers will get you to fluency in a way no one else can match.

- They're focused and ready to deliver a unique experience in the luxurious halls of our Polanco mansion.
- We're committed to making sure that nothing reminds you of a dull language school setting, and that you won't ever have to sing a song.
Mindfulness for Fluency during our 2017 cohort.
Created for Fluenz by Heidi Kusters, Mindfulness for Fluency clears the mind's clutter and overstimulation to sharpen your focus on Spanish. Sessions combine still and movement meditation throughout the day.
Taking a cue from mindfulness-based Tennis Psychology and practitioners like Tom Brady, we work with you to achieve perfect flow as you absorb Spanish on your way to peak fluency.
The city is amazing in every respect starting with the world's most interesting and innovative cuisine. Beyond amazing food, years of urban renewal have brought pedestrian friendly avenues, bike lanes, much safer neighborhoods full of bookstores, cafes and thriving art scenes.
Coyoacan, the city's traditional refuge for the country's artists, writers, architects and film directors, and now home to the Fluenz Immersions, is thriving like never before amidst its quiet and leafy streets.
Yet it's impossible to forget what has always made Mexico the capital of Spanish-speaking Latin America: the Archeological Museum, Rivera's and Siqueiro's murals, Frida Kahlo's house, the university and the city's central park, its amazing markets and most importantly, 20 million Mexicans who have made the place a vibrant meeting place of contrasts, languages and cultures for 692 years.
Mexico City should be on every 'bucket list'. And if you've ever visited, you know there are a million layers still waiting to be discovered.
Founded by Sonia Gil, Fluenz offers the most comprehensive language-learning programs designed for English-Speakers anywhere. The company's work is based on the proprietary linguistic models that reverse-engineer Spanish and other languages from the point of view of English.
The single most important factor to reach verbal fluency in Spanish is an understanding of the structures that sustain the language--its bones. Because so many of these elements are not intuitively recognizable to English-speakers, (i.e. feminine-masculine endings, complex conjugations, etc.) we are laser-focused on helping clients bridge this divide. We believe this lack of comparative approach is the single most important obstacle for English speakers trying to reach verbal fluency in Spanish.
The Fluenz approach breaks down Spanish into discrete elements that are best understood when explained in English - rather than the traditional approach based on generic practice after explanations of Spanish in Spanish. Once clearly understood, the elements that make up Spanish are best mastered through intense sessions of targeted practice.
Our high-impact sessions are tightly focused on getting clients to master the specific elements our assessment has shown can generate a breakthrough in their specific verbal fluency. We've eliminated random vocabulary and general conversation from learning in order to focus every single coaching hour into the specific and quantifiable linguistic tools that produce results.
After spending millions of dollars over a decade recreating an essentially human tutoring experience on an interactive platform, Fluenz Immersion brings this knowledge to one-on-one language instruction. Taking into account the learning experiences of over 160,000 clients and millions of hours of learning, we've created a personalized, high-impact training program to create breakthroughs for the Spanish of only 12 clients at a time.
