About Us



The Devela Language School was created through the collaboration of John and Jennifer Shipp (ex-worldschooling parents and digital nomads) and Patricia Avila León, one of the most sought-after and experienced Spanish language instructors in Guanajuato. John and Jennifer’s daughter, Lydian and her husband, Naing Naing (a Burmese citizen and a language instructor) also helped to develop the Mexico programs as well as Myanmar programs with the goal of benefiting not only our students, but the local community.




Between 10% and 70% of our profits go to fund local, charitable organizations or events in the countries where we offer classes.
