     "Even though I was going to Xela for several months to study spanish, I decided only to sign up of two weeks at Guatemalensis.   It was a school that I had come across on the internet.  I liked the school and ended up staying at Guatemalensis for three months.  I had a very full schedule but they were willing to work with me and were extremely flexible which enabled me to work on my master's in the morning and still be able to take spanish classes in the afternoon. "     To, madala.  Heather Vezina, U.S.A.

     Guatemalensis is a great place to study Spanish! The staff are wonderful -very helpful and accomodating. The trips that are arranged by the school are informative and fun as well. The Spanish spoken in Guatemala is easy to understand and that makes it easier for the students who are studying here. I was very impressed by the knowledge of both the language and the culture that the teachers have. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a high quality school in a safe location.
