   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.
