Why CILAC Freire?
CILAC Freire adapts Paulo Freire’s methodology to teach Spanish language and Latino Culture year-round in small intensive classes in a friendly progressive atmosphere. Our goal is to promote dialogue and communication between Mexico and people from other countries.
Cuernavaca, one city of contrasts, is a vacation spot for Mexican families, and meeting point for artists and intellectuals such as Paulo Freire, Ivan Ilich, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo since the 1950s. Later, during the 80’s, political refugees of Central and South America arrived aided by the progressive Catholic Bishop Sergio Mendez Arceo, who also came to Cuernavaca for sanctuary.
Cuernavaca, *The City of Eternal Spring*, is located 50 miles south of Mexico City. It is the capital of Morelos State (which is home to around 2,000,000 people).
At CILAC Freire, you can enjoy the beauty of our surroundings in a city built on a series of hilltops and deep ravines, with year-round sunshine and trees that bloom in an abundance of colors, and lovely views of the surrounding mountains.
