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

Conversation is Spanish goes on all day long in our Spanish language immersion program.  At the big midday meal, there is native-Spanish speaker at every table

Family Mexico Vacation with Spanish Study
on the Ocean in Veracruz, Mexico

Family Togetherness Everyone Will Remember Forever

The world has changed so much over the past 50 years. Today there is so much more to be aware of and so much more to know about.

Success in tomorrow's world will require far better understanding of the commonalities and differences among the world's peoples.

A Mexico vacation will give your kids the headstart of international multicultural experience, and because of it they'll be able to more deeply and fully understand future learning and events.

Veracruz is one of the world's safest cities. It's a place where Mexicans vacation. Here you don't have to worry about who's walking near you or who's driving the taxi. You can relax, have fun and let your family share in the very friendly happiness of Veracruz's wonderful people.

Veracruz and Mexico Family Notes

Two and a Half Feet Long and All Alligator [Mexico]
What a thrill--Cocodrilo is what they're called down here, and while on a nature tour by motorboat of a large lagoon's mangrove region a family saw one.

Down here there's always something new and different for the family to see and remember forever.

Snorkeling Is Great [Veracruz]
The water is wonderfully warm, and visibility is great. Kids love all the flora and fauna of the Coral Reefs.

Sandboarding the Dunes [Mexico]
It couldn't cost less. It's close by. It's crazy enough that kids love it. Dune-boarding is easy to do and has its thrilling moments.

Take the Family Rafting [Mexico]
An hour or so by car, and of course longer by bus, you'll get to Jalcomulco. And there you can shoot the rapids. Kids have to be ten years old. The rapids are safe, and our friends who own the rafting company are especially safety conscious.

Mexico Family Vacation with a Little Spanish for Everyone

  • Language Study
    • Spanish for Everyone is designed around need levels. For parents, be it survival Spanish or Immersion, it's as much as you want up to a full force. With the kids the intensity and content is cut down to what's appropriate, useful, and fun. Included content, as it should be, is determined in advance in close consultation with the parents.
    • Veracruz is a vacation city, but the vacationers are from the interior of Mexico. Your family will be in a vacation city but will be surrounded by Mexicans, not by Americans. Your family will be playing and learning with traditional Mexican culture everywhere around you.
  • Vacation in the city
    • All the standard family vacation places and services are here, and so is Mexico's old, traditional culture. You'll have to pick and choose bcause there's just too much to be able to do it all. You'll have pure vacation fun--the beach, the ocean rides and the banana, hot dogs, the aquarium, pro baseball and soccer, double decker open buses and rickety but safe city buses, markets full of open air shops, street vendors selling from their tricycles.
    • Culture is everywhere and you can mix in all you and your family want--buy some fruit and vegetables in the old-fashioned, still flourishing central market, visit Mexican schools at your children's grade levels, attend the Folklorico dancing and maybe take a few dance lessons, visit a guitar maker, have dinner with a local family, tour Mexico's naval academy, and the list goes on and on.
  • Vacation around the area
    • Out and back in three or four hours is often a long enough excursion for a family with young ones. The surrounding area is full of exciting and memorable short outings. Your family can go alone, or we'll help you arrange for a native-speaker to go along with you.
  • Overnight and Weekend Trips
    • Being somewhere is usually wonderful for kids; it's the getting there that's tough on them. You may want to give the family an overnight or a weekend away for something special to see and experience and remember forever. "And remember when I was walking up the steps to the pyramid and the nice guard came over and said that it wasn't..." They'll tell you and their friends, and they'll write about the magic at school. We'll help you plan to minimize the toughness of the road time and maximize the wonderful time.
  • 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
    • To make your family's vacation even more fun, you can pick and choose from all our programs. Maybe learning to make salsa, or going 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.

For Family Travel There are a Few Things You'll Want to Know are in Place

  • If a child gets sick, that's not the right time to begin wondering about health care. We have a list of doctors, dentists, and even hospitals at the ready.
  • Kids will want to eat everything (well maybe not the few funny looking things), and so we have guidelines on safe eating places and a list of super places for a family meal.
  • A family stays together in our family suite.
  • We take care of all the mother-henning we can so you can relax and have fun with your kids.
