Hi! I am planning to do a spanish immersion class for 3 weeks and was set on Appe until going to the forum where La Union was mentioned a couple of times. They both seem to meet my needs. Has anyone had experience with Appe? Good or bad. Also, I'd like to stay with a host family, however, want to be in walking distance of Antigua ... La Union seems to require a bus to get to host family which is not as appealing (ie Appe is suppose to be within walking distance). Also, any thoughts on where I'd be (level wise) with 3 weeks of 30 hour private instruction. I took 4 years of high school spanish 20 years ago, however, know the bare basics at best. Thanks a bunch for your time ... I find tripadvisor to be the best forum for planning.
