"I was not expecting to study Spanish or go to Guatemala this summer, but when my sister needed a travel partner I couldn't resist. I was blown away, both by the school and the country. First of all the immersion melded the bits of Spanish that I already knew into something usable. Then, through the one on one instruction, I learned a lot. My ability to read, understand, and speak improved tremendously in only one month - my first formal study. The excursions were fantastic for learning about the culture and history of Guatemala and for exploring the gorgeous scenery with the directors, who are certified guides and can take you up volcanoes safely. They also made sure we were safe and comfortable in our travels and our stay with a very kind Guatemalan family. I would highly recommend this program for its organization and personal care". Emily Wellham, June 2016

     Although I still have a lot of work to do to improve my spanish skills, I fell I have made tremendous progress due to the high quality of the instruction at Guatemalensis. I have spent years trying to learn on my own without formal instruction, but have been unsuccessful. I have a strong base on which to build now. I will be back. Chris Coutts. U.S.A.

      My time spent in Xela studying at Guatemalensis Spanish School was worthwhile. My ability to speak and to understand Spanish improved considerably. The directors and teachers helped with anything I needed. It is a great place to learn more Spanish and more about the people and culture of Guatemala. Clair Wolters.

       If you are looking for a great Spanish School. This is it. Great place great people!!! the experience of a lifetime!! Dan Norman. U.S.A.

       Ich war 4 Wochen in der Schule von Nora und Rolando. Die Schule bietet neben „Ein Lehrer – ein Schüler“ auch in der Freizeit Aktivitäten an. Alle Lehrer haben mehrjährige Erfahrung, sind pünktlich und sehr freundlich. Es wird individuell auf die einzelnen Schüler eingegangen. Ich war jetzt das 2te mal dort und ich kann es jedem nur empfehlen der Spanisch verbessern oder frisch lernen will. Nebenbei ist Xela eine wunderbare Stadt mit freundlichen Menschen, gutem Nachtleben und schlönen Kaffeehäusern.

       I was 4 weeks in the school of Nora and Rolando. Besides „one on one“ – classes organizes the school activities such as hiking, salsa classes, video watching. All teachers have yearlong experience, are on time and really friendly. I was there the second time and every time it is a wonderful experience. I can fully recomend the school to everybody who likes to improve spanish or is a completely beginner. Besides that Xela is a wonderful city with nice people, good nightlife and lovely cafés.  Alexander Wiesinger, Austria, February 2017
