As you’ve probably seen in prior notices, we (Eric and Linda Langner) closed our Language Immersion School several years ago. We’re retired and living in Paradise, living in our wonderful, traditional home in Veracruz, Mexico.

(The school name continues in Veracruz, but we are not associated with it.)

We have kept our school’s website online so that those looking at Linda’s books can see what our immersion school was like.

Linda has published 14 books. (And I, Eric, am as proud as can be of her.)

You can see Linda’s books here inside our site or on Linda’s Amazon Author Page or on LindaLangnerBooks.

Her books, in both Kindle and paperback formats, are available to everyone on

Business Spanish Immersion provides students with the Business Spanish needed in today's work world.

Day and overnight trips will take you to a variety of economic situations each with its own business setting and community.

Business in a Small Town

But it can't be all work. We hope you'll enjoy weekend trips to archaeological sites, maybe, Teotihuacán or Palenque, or stay with a family in a small town or village. For the rest of your life you'll remember the warmth and friendship of a traditional, old-fashioned Mexican family--two days and you'll miss them forever.

Veracruz and Mexico business notes

To Study Pronunciation before You Come Down [Mexico]
In order to start speaking, conversing, in Spanish nothing works nearly so well as good immersion. For learning rules, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading and writing, Spanish immersion, standard classroom study, and some packaged programs all make major contribution.

If you’re a very beginner and have a little time before you come to Mexico for business Spanish, you can get some useful vocabulary and pronunciation from CDs. A businessman was just with us who was using Rosetta Stone. The Spanish vocabulary he’d learned before coming down served him well just as soon as we got him talking.

We don’t support one Spanish CD over any other, but the Rosetta Stone had a dynamic modulation graph (perhaps others do too) that this businessman thought was very helpful with pronunciation.

A Spot on the Ocean [Veracruz]
As high-rise buildings keep springing up in our neighborhood, we're thinking about landing a little more space--landing some space out on the ocean.

We'll likely buy another ocean-going fishing launch and anchor it in the water at the end of our street. You just can't tell when "parking spaces" out on the water will jump in value. Home or here, little business opportunities are too nice to miss.

Spanish Immersion for the business community

  • The Focus
    • Taking you from non-speaker to speaker is the program’s central and overriding focus. We measure our success in terms of the growth of your conversation level.
This school is the perfect mix of encouragement and expectation.  
       John Harper, President, Mangaging Decisions, Inc., Battle Creek, MI.

  • Environment
    • We provide a wake-up to fall-asleep learning environment. Spanish is alive and available to you during all these hours. We've tripled the amount of effective learning time each day, and as one would guess, the results are terrific.
    • Also, we've chosen the fully manageable environment of having room and board within the school building itself instead of using the common but marginally manageable home-stay. Although home-stays sound like fun, we choose not to use them because they almost never come even close to offering the number of effective learning hours we’ve achieved with room and board within the school.
    • With our live-in staff, day staff, and Out and About Labs, our in-school room and board setting gives you lots and lots of participation in Mexico’s wonderful culture.
Your method of combining semi-private instruction with daily excursions (accompanied with my own teacher {charlante}) into the daily routine, markets, and various strata of the society of Veracruz worked magic.    Bill Clune, Ret. Petroleum Engineer, New Zealand

  • Curriculum
    • We've developed a system where you start talking immediately and learn grammar as you need it. (The old-fashioned, task-oriented, traditional curriculum design fits well in the traditional classroom, but it’s too slow and too rigid for effective immersion).
    • Our approach allows much more of the structure of Spanish to be available to you from your first day. In just a couple more days, you’ll be able to put a lot of the language to work.
    • We're extremely flexible, and thus you can zero in on the areas of Spanish you most need.
    • By limiting class size to two students, we give you far more “talking space,” and this leads to rapid progress in your spoken language.
    • You’ll have the overall picture of Spanish. This picture will allow you to successfully continue expanding your knowledge after you leave school.
What started out as a simple trip to a language school turned into one of our best vacations ever! Eric and Linda, we’ll be back!    Tina Guiterrez and Larry Brown, Owners, European Bridal, Cincinnati, Ohio

  • Classwork
    • In relaxed, informal, but highly focused style, class addresses grammar, structure and vocabulary, and integrates it into conversation. Instruction itself occurs primarily in a conversational delivery. In addition to our standard material, we review government forms, some tax considerations, business documents, and a variety of accounting practices. Classroom instruction is in small-group, and it is supportive of the Out-and-About-Labs.
You have a great thing going there at your school. We met a lot of really, nice people, learned a lot, and we hated to leave!    Karen Boyd, Creative Director/Co-Owner, Talk, Paper, Scissors, Inc., Manchester, NH

  • Out-and-About Labs
    • Visiting traditional colonias and tiny shops with roll-down steel doors, museums and schools with happy students, the beach, the malecon, and especially, the people themselves, always brings the joy and excitement of sharing in the life of Mexico. Charlantes share your joy and excitement and lead you to talk, in Spanish, about what you see and what you’re doing.
    • There’s always so much to say, so much to discuss, that what always happens, will happen again--you’ll talk with those around you. And since they talk in Spanish
  • Contacts
    • As the words begin to flow and communication becomes more and more successful, it’s time to talk with local business owners and business managers. You’ll broaden your functional business vocabulary. You may wish to observe several businesses. The program’s focus allows and encourages individualization.
  • College Credit and CEUs
    • College credit is available through Pima Community College in Tucson (
    • CEUs and college credits through other schools are also available.
  • Remember our Mix and Match
    • You can pick and choose from all our programs. Maybe you'd like to learn to make salsa, or go scuba diving (buceo in Spanish) or snorkeling. A day rafting or birding would be great. There's more to do than time permits.
    • A glance through the other program pages will show you the many choices you have.
    • To get a closer look at the providers of the eco-tourism and adventure with whom we're associated please take a look at It's a group of locally-owned, small businesses sharing the beauty and wonder of their communities and the excitment of their adventure activities.

The key to our success, and yours

  • We are careful to be ever-mindful of the enormous difference between taking Spanish classes and learning to talk in Spanish. From our own experience we know that taking many college level courses still leaves one barely able to talk at more than a survival level.
  • The major barrier to speaking in class is that traditional school focuses on a student’s mistakes.
  • People learn to speak based not upon their mistakes but instead upon their successes. Our Business Spanish Immersion program is designed around success-based language development for the businessperson.
  • Success-based is what works, and it’s also what’s fun.
