     In the two weeks that I studied at Guatemalensis  language school I made profound progress in my ability to speak and understand Spanish. The teachers were experienced, knowledgeable, and intuitive, and their teaching approaches were tailored especially for the individual's varied learning style. Living with the wonderful host family offered another important element to the learning process, they were warm, hospitable, and experienced with students' varied abilities. Both the school and the host family offered a nurturing and accepting environment in which to learn many useful linguistic tools.Chris Vargas U.S.A.
