After 15 years of dedication to teaching Spanish to incoming students, the Institute of Modern Spanish opened its doors in 2010 to local Merida residents who wish to learn English. Our project–the Institute of Modern English—now serves around 100 students during the school year. Due to our magnificent location in the most up-and-coming area of Merida (high-tech hospitals and several universities are close as well as new residential areas), the Institute of Modern English attracts young families as well as families who are new to the area. The program is structured similar to the Institute of Modern Spanish classes in that conversation and grammar are covered in the classes.
IME KIDS! (Institute of Modern English KIDS!) attracts kindergarten through high school students. This afternoon program provides conversation to advanced groups, general English, and homework help for bilingual school students. IME KIDS! also has a Saturday morning program. Most positions are available on an exchange basis—teaching in exchange for Spanish classes and/or housing and meals—, and some are available hourly wage. Positions require availability from September through December or January through June with preference given to those who are available for 10 months (September through June). Spanish is not required; but desire to learn Spanish is a must!
