Young Thais are drawn by the big city lifestyle
Take a break from those painstaking language classes: the only way you're going to roll your Rs to perfection is if you make learning fun.
Escape to Fiesta Americana in Puerto Vallarta, and you will ace an immersion course where teacher's pets are encouraged to coast.
Unlike the stark classrooms that you've left behind, you'll enrol in a bright Superior Room for a five-night stay ($388). Whether you've brought along a plus one or a child - kids ages 12 and younger stay and eat for free - you can now conjugate in style.
Drop your book bags on the marble floor, and then practice saying "muy bonita" when you see the view of the Pacific Ocean from your secluded balcony. Leave the door open and let the sea breeze follow you inside as you enjoy a siesta on your soft, king-sized bed.
The only school uniform you'll need is your teeny bikini as you dive into the outdoor swimming pool or bask in the warm sun on the resort's beach. Listen to the sound of rustling palms as you sprawl out under a thatched hut at sunset, and continue to stretch your legs-only this time, in your bathtub-before dinner.
If you didn't already use your 25% discount on food and drinks at the swim-up Bikini Bar, make the most of this multiple choice dining test and answer "all of the above". Sip on a fruit-topped drink in the Lobby Bar, and then eat a traditional Mexican dinner at La Hacienda.
Impress other suntanned pupils with your bilingual abilities when you balance duel half-off discounts on treatments at the resort's spa alongside tours and activities provided by Vallarta Adventures: zipline over the lush Sierra Madre Mountains or snorkel in the clear Banderas Bay, and then recuperate with a calming full-body massage.
It's one Escape that can't be lost in translation. Class dismissed.
