We're pleased that the US State Department bulletins continue to show that the Roca Blanca Spanish Language School is located in the safest and most secure area in Mexico, well and easily patrolled, virtually free from the drug and other violence issues that are plaguing Mexico's border towns and some large cities. Click on the "About Safety" tab above or to the right for more detailed information.
We are an intensive missionary language school and Spanish curriculum that emphasizes excellence and immersion into a Hispanic culture. Both are necessary if you're going to communicate like you really hope to, and be effective over the long term! The school is open to adults of any age and any Spanish speaking level, and often to older children of adult students.
Cacalotepec, the fishing village where Roca Blanca is located, is approximately one-half hour from Puerto Escondido, the best surfing beach in Mexico. Of course our students can also enjoy the beach just 100 yards from the base, along with the tropical climate year round. In our state of Oaxaca, which has the largest number of unreached people groups in the Western Hemisphere (16 major language groups, and 155 dialects), there are needy coastal towns and rustic mountain villages, providing ample opportunity for ministry experience and other-culture interaction.
Thorough formal classroom training combined with nonformal and informal experiential learning allow you to gain valuable cultural insights and ministry experience while you study. Located on the campus of a Bible school, music school, high school, vocational school, and medical clinic, mostly staffed by Mexican nationals, there are many opportunities to daily engage others on a multi-cultural level. At Roca Blanca Spanish Language School your academic studies become practical to you from the start as you become a part of the community of seasoned missionaries, national students from various indigenous groups, and multi-ethnic staff on the Roca Blanca mission base, all who love Jesus, His Word, and His ways.
