The after class activities are also a great way...

He helped me translate lyrics and it was fun as well as informative. The atmosphere is easygoing and homely in the hostal. There's a nice shared lunch every friday with a family feel. The...

We spent two weeks learning Spanish at Miguel de Cervantes and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The teachers were amazing, they taught us a lot in the little time frame we had. The school also arranged a lovely home stay family for us to stay with. Would definitely recommend.

Mi novio y yo hemos visitado Nicaragua, El Salvador, y Panama para tomar clases de espanol, y esta escuela en Xela es el mejor de todos. Los maestros tienen un profundo conocimiento de la gramatica, las reglas, y el lenguaje 'de la calle'. Antes de decidir en Miguel de Cervantes, leimos de muchos diferentes escuelas en Xela, y la mayoria...

I came to Guatemala to study Spanish. I started in Antigua and after two weeks I decided I wanted to be more fully immersed in Spanish. Quetzaltengo is fantastic for this. Though there is still tons of extranjeros, it is possible to speak only Spanish if you really work at it. Once in Xela, I started my classes at a...
