What Our Students Say ...
When I first arrived in Guatemala 3 weeks ago, I could barely say more than "no comprendo" in Spanish. It's amazing how far I've progressed in the little time I've spent at the school. I now have the knowledge and confidence to participate in conversations with Guatemalans!
Equally important as the quantity of learning I achieved is the quality; I found my classes so enjoyable, my teacher understood my learning style as well as my need for a mid-morning coffee. The relaxed atmosphere of the school is something I really appreciated!

The Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua is a great place to learn Spanish. The school is about five minutes away from the plaza.
My room was huge, two beds, television, big bathroom and very clean. The school also has two terraces with great view of the three volcanoes by which Antigua is surrounded. The food and personality of Ana, the hostess of the homestay situated in the school itself, are simply amazing. I found that the homestay is, apart from “extra Spanish lessons”, a great way to learn more about Guatemalan food.
The rest of the staff also are very nice, friendly, helpful, and fun people. I had some great time with them during small parties at the school.
