Center for Languages of Pátzcuaro

The Center for Languages of Pátzcuaro (CELEP) is a non-profit organization whose earnings fund projects of the Center for Social and Ecological Studies (CESE). Since 1983, CESE has been promoting rural projects in education and environmental conservation in the Lake Pátzcuaro area. 

Dedicated to fostering cross-cultural understanding of the Purhépecha people, culture and homelands with sustainable tourism—that is, tourism that protects local people, communities and environment—CELEP is available to help you make the most of your visit.

Learning Spanish

At the Center for Language of Pátzcuaro (CELEP), we believe that learning Spanish should be an enjoyable process, and that studying a language in a cultural setting has a synergistic effect with language learning.

Classroom work at CELEP is liberally mixed with fun and the interesting cultural activities and that are abundant in the Pátzcuaro area. One day you may move from the classroom to the top of a pyramid, or learn to make tortillas, or visit the workshop of a woodcarver, or enjoy an insider's view of a village fiesta.

The cultural experiences are designed to build on the classroom work, giving the student an opportunity to use newly-acquired language skills by living them.
