They deserve the best School, enroll them where their skills and leadership is developed and are not harassed!

Guatemalensis Spanish School is the right school and program for them!

   Guatemalensis Spanish School has long experience teaching Spanish Language as a foreign language to groups of high school, college, university, outdoor, ministerial from church students. Also has administrative experience to manage all the hosting service and all the Activities and Excursions for these kind of groups. Despite the fact that students come in groups, each one receives personal attention in teaching, hosting, communication, safety and security, etc., In our program and methodology students can also conduct researches, to do service learning, develop their leadership and broaden their vision. We strongly recommend that underage students come accompanied by adults such as parents, teachers, professors, etc. If this is not possible, we strongly recommend that the students follow and obey our instructions and recommendations, specially those related to her/his behavior and personal safety.

     This was my first trip out the USA and I couldn't have asked for a better or more complete experience! Getting to Xela was easy and not nerve racking by any means because of the clarity and complete directions and involvement of the school and directors. Though it wouldn't have been impossible it was a great relief for both me and my mom to know how I would be getting from Guatemala City to Xela beforhand. I think it makes coming here an option for young students as well! My homestay family are great. they are willing to offer anything they can and they correct my spanish, and that's what I'm here for. Taking the students to different places makes the experience whole. As far as the classes, I learned the conditional and got a great review of most of the other tenses as well as much practice. Other that I really enjoyed the very relaxed atmosphere and personalities of the Directors! and Teachers. Wonderful..I might have to return!  Lizzie Steinert, U.S.A.

     I would tell people I see that this school is very good. I would recommend this to other people. I have learned more here then I have back in the U.S. That is what I would say to other people. Thank you for teaching me Spanish. This trip here has been fun. I hope to see you again.  Kyle Sparacio (18, U.S.A)

     Two years ago I took a group of my high school Spanish students to this school for a two-week interim program, and it was one of the best educational experiences I've ever had as a teacher. Nora and Rolando became good friends of ours. They are incredibly caring and devoted to their work. I have nothing but positive memories from the experience. We had no trouble at all as far as safety issues with our students. They all stayed in host families (one student per family), as did I, and this helped enhance the experience. We also enjoyed cultural events at the school in the evenings and beautiful hikes to see the nearby volcanoes. I can't wait to go back with another group of students. B. Schletty, U.S.A.
