Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua Guatemala:
Hundreds of students attend Spanish courses at Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua Guatemala every year. Here's what they say about us:
My experience at Ixchel Spanish School could not have been better. Because I already speak a good deal of Spanish, I had some concern about the outcome of classes.
After an hours of conversation, my teacher knew exactly what I needed. She was professional, fun to be with and an excellent teach. The flowers and humming birds provide a lovely surrounding in which to study.
I would highly recommend Ixchel to students at all levels of Spanish. I also enjoyed immensely the family in our homestay.
I truly enjoyed my experience at the Ixchel Spanish School. It was a great way for me to brush up on my Spanish skills after spending 4 years without classes. The one-on-one teaching style that Ixchel offers is a highlight of the program. The pace and content of the class is designed around you.
My teacher was amazing as well. We could talk about anything, and she always made learning Spanish fun — whether it was with games or jokes we would tell each other.
My homestay experience was nice. I had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and still integrate myself into a Guatemalan family. All of the meals were delicious, and the entire family was welcoming.
I liked the cultural activities the school organized. It gave me a chance to learn more about the country and its people. I went on a tour of a Macadamia farm, coffee farm, various trips to pueblos and salsa classes. The town of Antigua is also beautiful. There is a mix of modern and traditional restaurants, people, and stores. I would definitely like to return to Ixchel in the future.
I have been studying at Ixchel Spanish School for five weeks. It is a professional and well managed school. The staff is friendly and you can rely on them. I really appreciate my lessons and I have learned a lot. Activities organized for the afternoon were very interesting too.
The atmosphere in the school is very friendly, I met a lot of other students that were studying at this school like me. My weeks at Ixchel were definitely positive, I'd suggest to study here if you want to learn Spanish, know Antigua and meet new friends.
When my boyfriend and I first came to Antigua, we were overwhelmed by the number of Spanish schools here! How could we possibly select a school from so many choices!?
We decided to attend Ixchel Spanish School for the following reasons:
- They pay their teachers a fair wage.
- The teachers are fabulous and have lots of experience.
- The grounds are beautiful and not too noisy.
- Everything is so flexible here — from afternoon activities to hours/days of lessons.
My teacher, Silvia, was amazing! She was patient and kind and we laughed a lot together! I feel like I learned a lot of important grammar points, and I was impressed by how well organized (yet flexible) my lessons were. She had a set lesson plan for me, but would alter it if there was something in particular that I wanted to know. No doubt, it was a great experience.
I liked learning Spanish at Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua very much! A big thank you to my teachers Silvia and Carmen, to Aliz for all her help, and to Rosita for the good coffee.
I will definitely return to Ixchel in the future to continue my lessons and learn more Spanish.
This is my third time to visit Ixchel Spanish School. I started out as an absolute beginner and did not understand anything. Now I am able to converse with people in Spanish, I can express myself very well in Spanish and also understand Spanish when it is spoken. My teacher Angelica is the best. I would highly recommend Ixchel to anyone.
Ixchel is a great school for a beginning student, and those with a background. The teachers are very friendly, patient, and well trained for all levels. I learned a lot in my 6 weeks here and wish I could continue.
Along with excellent one on one instruction, Ixchel provides wonderful homestays for individuals looking for a little extra practice, as well as nearly daily tours of the surrounding area.
I have enjoyed my experience immensely and highly recommend Ixchel for anyone looking for a good school in Antigua.
I have had a great experience at the school. The grounds are quiet, relaxing and it's good to be outside.
My teacher Carmen was very patient and great at explaining things. The pace of classes was also very good, lots of information but good! And a good mix of exercises and conversation.
Thank you! I am just starting but think I have learned a lot.
I also took some Spanish classes in Japan but I'm learning more here with Ixchel Spanish School because the structure of the course is very well organised and it is fun to study with the kind teachers intensively — not only the language, but also they teach us a lot of things about Guatemala.
I'm very thankful to my teachers Silvia, Mariela, Ana, Carmen, Elsa and all the staff of the school!
It is very telling of the quality of instruction when so many of the students return for their second or third time to Ixchel. Not only that, but they return with friends and family — this kind of loyalty speaks volumes of the program they have developed at Ixchel.
I absolutely enjoyed my time at Ixchel! The teachers and staff are just so welcoming, and it really does feel like a second home in Antigua!
I learned so much in these 3 weeks and I had a great time with Ana Lucia, she's amazing!
The best part of the day was the break though, it's so nice to talk with everybody, hang out in the cafeteria and make new friends!
Great people, great school!
Ixchel was very welcoming and the perfect way to settle into Antigua. Although two weeks is too short, it has been a great introduction to Spanish.
I would recommend Ixchel to anyone wanting to learn Spanish, explore Antigua and learn about Guatemalan culture.
I can't wait to come back!
I had the best experience a girl could ask for, especially for the first time I've been out of the country alone. Everyone at the school, students and teachers alike, are so helpful with anything you need.
I loved my teacher Silvia, she and I got along great. She was very patient with me. My homestay family was perfect. They too were very accommodating with whatever you need.
I want to come back in the summer and do it all once again.
Having Spanish classes here at the Ixchel school is a great experience and absolutely recommendable. Not only the enjoyable atmosphere and the highly educated teachers, also the organized frame program makes the stay more than valuable.
Affordable trips to all the well worth seeing places of Guatemala allow the combination of practicing the Spanish language and having a great cultural experience in the heart of the Mayan world.
Summarized, visiting the Ixchel school does not only mean to receive very efficient individual Spanish classes, it also means to visit Antigua and get to know many beautiful insights into Guatemala. For me, this was the reason to do my studies there a second time.
I have very much enjoyed the classes at the school. Not being able to speak any Spanish I was nervous, but Gloria immediately made me feel comfortable. All the lessons have been lots of fun and she has been very patient with me. I have learnt lots in just 5 days!
The homestay has been great! The family were very welcoming and we were very comfortable. It was great being able to practice what we had learnt that day with the family and other students.
The whole experience has been fantastic and I am sad to leave.
I have had a great time learning Spanish here and I have learnt a lot in a very short space of time. It's just a shame I only have one week to study. I wish I had more time.
My teacher has been fantastic in helping me learn and has been very patient throughout. I would recommend Ixchel to potential student.
My week with Ixchel has been a whirlwind! I arrived unsure of what to expect. However, I am leaving with so much.
The teachers and students are warm and friendly. Every morning I sit outside with a view of the volcanoes and speak with my teacher. In the afternoons, I explore different places around Antigua. For example, on Tuesday the school organized a trip to the ruins of Iximche. With my reacher, I saw the Mayan ruins and even was witness to a Mayan ceremony with fire, candles, and chanting. After the ceremony, I shared avocados and tortillas with my teacher. The week ended with a big barbecue for all the students.
I've met so many interesting people! Next time, I will stay longer!
I enjoyed my time learning Spanish in Antigua very much and would like to stay longer. Ixchel is a very good school. I like the building and the activities. Thanks to my teacher Mariela I learned a lot of Spanish.
My room in the guesthouse was nice too.
I had a very good experience at Ixchel Spanish School. My teacher Isabel was excellent!
I only attended for 2 weeks, but I learned enough to have simple conversations in Spanish and to ask common questions and to understand the answers.
The program was flexible but well organized. I appreciated the focus on grammar and vocabulary.
My experience at Ixchel has been wonderful. My teacher Carmen spoke clearly and made learning very easy. Whether you are a beginner or you just want to practise your Spanish, Ixchel will make it possible for you.
The family that I stayed with was incredible. Typical extended family who made me feel at home. The food was exquisite! The house was clean and, most important, was filled with love!
I highly recommend Ixchel Spanish School and the homestay program!
I liked the Ixchel school very much and especially my teacher Isabel. She is very friendly and we had a lot of fun together. In four weeks I learned more Spanish than I had expected. Ixchel is a great school and I recommend it to everyone.
The homestay was great too — very comfortable and clean, and the people were very friendly.
In short, I had a great time and learned a lot!
Ixchel is great! They are flexible and offer many activities. The teachers are nice and experienced, and the location is perfect as well!
If you want to stay with a family, their contacts are fabulous. My family was incredibly friendly and the food was delicious!
I had a fantastic time!
My teacher Helen was amazing and the course co-ordinator Aliz was always ready to greet you with a smile and a cheerful comment.
I would definitely recommend this school to anyone considering studying Spanish in Antigua.
I liked my experience in Ixchel. My teacher Maria was great! The lessons fitted my needs and my level and improved my Spanish as much as possible in one week.
The school's secretary gave me a very good service, always cared for me being satisfied and happy. I will, for sure, recommend Ixchel to my friends! Thank you!
I have really enjoyed the time I have spent here studying and getting to know the town of Antigua and the people here. I'm really happy and pleased with the teaching. Ana is definitely the best Spanish teacher I have ever had! I have learned surprisingly much Spanish in just two weeks and I'm definitely planing to come back for another week or two.
I wished to become fluent in Spanish because I am teaching courses about health care in Argentina and other Latin America countries. I wish to speak directly to my students and not use translators. I worked with a good tutor in the US, but my learning was too slow. I wanted a more intensive learning experience.
After much Internet research, I focused on schools in Guatemala. My Google search produced a long list of schools with Ixchel Spanish School at the top. I also have a friend who is an archaeologist in Peru. She learned her Spanish at Ixchel and gives it a strong recommendation.
I enrolled with Ixchel through the website. I received an immediate response and several more personal, informative messages from Ray. I was very impressed.
I liked every feature of Ixchel:
- the setting in a beautiful old residence with trees, plants, birds, a fountain, and interesting architecture
- the learning cubicles, a little bit secluded, and perfect for a maestra and her student
- the quality of my teachers (Yoli and Isabel). They are intelligent, friendly, and helpful. We laugh together and became friends.
- the other wonderful people at Ixchel, especially Aliz, Rosita, and Sergio. It was easy to become good friends with them also. They work very hard and perform their jobs very well.
- the teaching materials — my notebook and the teachers guide books (I bought copies for myself). They are well written, cover the topics very well, and are easy to understand.
- the additional activities available to students — cultural, natural, geographical, recreational. There is good diverse selection. They are very inexpensive and a good addition to the Spanish classes.
- the living arrangements. I lived with a family (Lourdes, Hugo and their two daughters) and it was perfect. They are very friendly, intelligent, and patient with poor Spanish. It's possible to live your own life, come and go as you please. The food for all three meals is wonderful and tasty (I am a vegetarian). There were 7 other students in the house. This can be comforting to some people, and a way to share experiences.
- there is WIFI in the house and a good TV set if you need that
- the other students are a diverse mix of different nationalities and ages
- the overall effect among the teachers, school administrators, host family, and students is of a large extended family with which you can spend as much or as little time as you want
The location in Antigua is very special. Because of its world heritage site status, it is largely protected in its old colonial appearance. The recent earthquakes have left it with some ruins that can be quite interesting.
The people throughout the city (and Guatemala and other developing countries) are exceptional — patient, friendly, and generous. I never saw a single expression of anger.
I have been here a month and feel very satisfied with my progress in learning Spanish. A couple nights ago, I overheard a football match on a TV as I walked by a tienda. The owner beckoned me to join him and a friend (a local football player) to watch the game with them. I spent half an hour watching and talking in Spanish with them. I was surprised I could do it.
I still have much to learn to achieve my Spanish fluency goals. I can think of no better place to continue my studies. I will return for a second month at Ixchel in March 2011.
I truly enjoyed my classes at Ixchel Spanish School. The people here were so nice and helpful. In less than 2 weeks I was able to hold conversations with people, which surprised me very much. My teacher was amazing and I look forward to continuing my education via Skype. I highly recommend this school.
This course was excellent. I was well received and received excellent instruction from both my teachers, Carmen and Ana Lucia. I want to specially commend Carmen for her competence and professionalism (I spent most of the time with Carmen — 4 hours daily).
I have already recommended this school to some of my colleagues in Belize and will definitely return again another time in the future.
My husband and I found Ixchel after we were in Antigua for a few days. To tell the truth, we didn't do much research and decided to visit a few schools in order to make our decision. Our very first impression of Ixchel was positive! We entered into a lovely courtyard and were greeted by Alicia. Wow! Extremely positive, able to speak English and a wonderful sense of humor. So... we booked not knowing who our teacher would be.
We could not have asked for a better maestra. Angelica has proven to be absolutely wonderful and the best fit for us. She is not only incredible intelligent and professional but extremely patient and has conducted our classes with a refreshing sense of humor. After 3 weeks, we are able to understand almost everything and although we are reluctant to speak, we do very well and are able to make ourselves understood.
Thank you, Angelica and Ixchel — we will be back!
My comments regarding my teacher Helen are completely positive. Helen is patient, friendly and genuinely interested in helping students learn and understand Spanish. I was very happy to have her as my main teacher. She went the extra mile to make sure that even though I was having some difficulty in grasping some of the principles she was teaching, she always made sure that I was comfortable with the concepts before moving on.
I would recommend Helen to anyone asking about finding a Spanish instructor here in Guatemala. Helen exemplifies the kind of person who should be in any position where patience and an ability to teach the Spanish language is warranted. Helen made my experience at the Ixchel School a very memorable one.
I really enjoyed studying at Ixchel. The school itself is absolutely beautiful with gardens, a spacious courtyard and little bamboo huts for studying. There is also a roof terrace where you can soak in the sun if you wish.
The school arranges many activities such as hikes to the local volcanoes or salsa classes. My favorite was a tortilla making lesson. Then, of course we got to eat them afterwards.
My tutor was super, she figured out quickly what I needed to work on and could always think of a quick synonym. I would recommend the school to anyone.
As the sun broke through the side of Antigua each morning, the days in Antigua and at Ixchel Spanish School only became more fascinating with each day that passed. The staff were friendly, helpful and in times great fun.
Everyday at Ixchel was a blessing and I cannot wait to return to this beautiful school.
Ixchel Spanish School was a great place to study. It was very flexible and helpful with finding volunteer opportunities around Antigua. The teachers are very knowledgeable and can work to your level of Spanish. I had a great time!
My host family was incredible! They really took the time to get to know the student and help them out. The meals were plenty and fantastic (and they even taught me how to cook chiles rellenos!). Ixchel is a great place to learn about the culture and meet students from all around the world.
I came to Antigua Guatemala not knowing one word of Spanish and left 7 weeks later not only with a solid competency in conversation and grammar, but also with many friendships and incredible experiences. Ixchel's professional staff, combined with its intensive one-on-one tailored curriculum and dedicated teachers provide a fantastic environment to learn Spanish.
Student activities and cultural events organized by the school enrich the experience and the city of Antigua itself is in no short order of festivals, bars and delicious local restaurants. I would highly recommend this school to all ages and insist that a family home-stay that allows for full immersion into culture and customs is ideal for gaining perspective of life in Guatemala.
My experience here in Antigua has been fantastic! I am so sad that I can't stay longer. It is my first time studying Spanish and Gloria has been a great teacher. I've learned so much already in such a short time, and plan to come back as soon as possible, most likely next December again.
My host family are also so nice and have been very kind. I've loved the activities as well, my only wish is that I could stay longer. Muchas Gracias!
It is with pleasure and full confidence I recommend studying Spanish at the Ixchel school in Antigua Guatemala. My 19 years old son and I completed a week of half day study with private tutors who tailored classes to fit our specific needs. In both cases the tutors were wonderful and helped us achieve our goals.
In addition to our classes, we attended a luncheon hosted by the school that allowed us to eat a traditional Guatemalan meal and to meet students from Finland, Sweden, Italy and Australia.
We look forward to returning to Ixchel in the future.
What a great trip! Carmen was fantastic — we mostly chatted, which is really what I need. The family homestay was great, no problems. The school is lovely and everyone very friendly. No complaints from me, except that I don't want to go home!
The school was excellent! My teacher was very professional and I learned a lot! There were interesting free-time activities on offer.
Ixchel is a very good school for learning to speak, especially because the teachers give you many opportunities to practice with them about everyday things.
Ixchel Spanish School is a fantastic way to learn or improve your Spanish. When I started I knew no Spanish and after only two weeks I was able to understand and contribute to basic conversation.
The family home-stay is a brilliant way to experience the Guatemalan lifestyle. The teachers are great and make learning fun. I hope to return someday.
I had an amazing experience at Ixchel School and in Antigua. I met many people from all over the world and visited many places in Guatemala. I really enjoyed my Spanish classes. Working one on one with a teacher provides a relaxed atmosphere for learning. Not only did I learn grammar, but also about Guatemala's history and culture. I lived with a family who welcomed me into their home. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone.
Antigua is a lovely, clean city, with countless comfortable cafes, bars and restaurants to meet new friends. The school is located in the town center and just a few minutes on foot from your host family. Thanks to the individual lessons I could improve my Spanish very well. The school activities are very interesting and a good opportunity to meet other students and locals, as well as to use your Spanish. The last four weeks were great, instructive and an unforgettable experience!
When I arrived at Ixchel three weeks ago I spoke no Spanish. Living with a local family and taking four hours of classes each day I have learnt a lot, and had many opportunities to practice speaking in Spanish outside of school as well as in it. My teacher and the family have been very supportive in helping me learn, and I am now able to communicate effectively with them.
I am having an amazing experience in Antigua. Living with a family is one of the best ways to get an inside look into the culture of Guatemala and practice Spanish. My teacher is incredibly understanding, patient and funny. I always have a great time during my lessons. Attending the Ixchel Spanish School was a great investment in furthering my knowledge of language and culture.
The Spanish school Ixchel, which I have attended for several weeks, is a very professional school. The teachers are, in my experience, very qualified and punctual.
The school has a lot of different, interesting activities every week, mainly in the afternoons. The school has a youthful environment, but welcomes students of all ages. I find it a very social school.
Ixchel is situated very central in Antigua and has a very attractive courtyard which adds to the pleasure of staying here. I hope to come back another time!
Learning Spanish by sitting outside with the sun shining and just talking with my instructor is the perfect way to learn vocabulary and grammar. I have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and getting to know the staff at Ixchel. They have welcomed me with open arms.
Antigua is a beautiful, friendly and exciting city and Ixchel School works hard to give its students the best experience possible. Immediately I felt welcome and comfortable and over my four weeks stay enjoyed taking part in the school's interesting and varied activities, cooking, salsa classes, films, visiting local churches and also further to climb a volcano!
The staff is friendly and the relaxed, informal student-teacher relationship is brilliant for practising Spanish. Many thanks to my teacher, who not only tirelessly corrected my poor pronouns and wrong reflexives, but taught me a lot about Guatemala's history, culture and society.
Five weeks in Antigua at Ixchel Spanish School have gone by very quickly. The school is great and the teachers my wife and I have had have been very professional. We knew almost no Spanish when we started and now feel very comfortable meeting citizens of the city. Ixchel school has provided activities almost every day and they have been great.
I had a wonderful experience here at Ixchel. My teacher is phenomenal and the school is always there to help you. The home-stay is a necessity. Our family was very kind and helpful and instrumental in helping me learn Spanish.
I really enjoyed studying Spanish at the Ixchel Spanish school in Antigua Guatemala. Arriving at the school with only two years of high school Spanish, taken over 15 years ago, I was surprised how quickly you can gain a working knowledge of the language.
My teacher was very nice and patient, but also very goal oriented and dedicated to helping me learn. The facility, just as the staff, is warm and welcoming and the afternoon optional activities were fun and interesting. I especially enjoyed visiting Volcan Pacaya. I only wish that I had more time to study here.
Studying at Ixchel Spanish School was a great experience. In one week I covered as much Spanish as I did in two years in school. My teacher was completely in touch with my needs as a student. She was able to judge my progress and adjust lessons accordingly. The individual attention I received was invaluable.
The environment at the school is very pleasant. I enjoyed learning outside, rather than in the classroom. The activities organized by the school were very interesting. We really enjoyed climbing Pacaya.
Studying at Ixchel Spanish School was all in all such a wonderful experience. Situated in Antigua, the school has endless bars and restaurants close by with a variety of music and rood set in the beautiful colonial town.
The school itself has a comfortable and immensely welcoming atmosphere. The warm and informal approach of my teaching made it easier to improve and pick up confidence with my Spanish! Many thanks to my teacher who not only made me feel so at home but for teaching me so much about the ways of Antigua and on a wider scale Guatemala itself.
Ixchel is a beautiful and excellent school. I learnt more Spanish in a week than I did in a 10 week course back home. My teachers were excellent and attended to my needs as best as possible.
My host family was also fantastic! They were very patient, helpful and cooked great meals. Combining the lessons and homestay was a great opportunity to put into practice what I learnt each day at school with my host family.
After being so impressed after my first 3 weeks I extended my stay to 6 weeks in total. I loved my stay in Antigua and will always want to return.
This has been a great learning experience. The opportunity that I have had to learn one-on-one with a teacher like Jeaneth is like none I have ever experienced.
Living with a Guatemalan family has also been incredible. You can do all the travelling you want but if you don't immerse yourself in the culture you are always missing out. I recommend this type of experience and especially this school to anyone.
We knew zero Spanish when we started school. Thanks to a very patient teacher we were able to understand and communicate in Spanish. We also enjoyed being placed with a family and believe this immersion greatly helped improve our Spanish learning curve. Thanks to the staff for running a great school!

I enjoyed my classes, my teacher, the people and the afternoon activities very much. It was a great experience. I want to come back soon to learn more Spanish and to stay longer. It was great to stay with the guest family. The food and the hospitality were very good. Antigua is a very nice town.
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
I enjoyed this school very much. Teachers, family and staff — all excellent, professional and friendly people. I will be pleased to recommend the school to friends and others.
I really enjoyed the challenge of learning a new language and would recommend this school to fellow travellers. The teaching is personal and at a high level. I just hope I remember my verbs!
I can't believe how much Spanish I've learned this past week! Luis was a great teacher and had very interesting questions for me. It was great learning about Guatemala from him. Perhaps I will return sometime in the future!
I've enjoyed studying here very much and learned a lot of Spanish in just over a week. If we come back to Antigua, we hope to study here again.
I can thoroughly recommend the school both for academic excellence and for its activities and ambiance. I had two teachers while learning Spanish and both were attentive and knowledgeable. The learning structure was methodical and practical and I soon found that I understood many things that were confusing before. I have no regrets about my choice.
Antigua is a nice place to study Spanish. The teacher was nice and patient and I learned a lot. Thank you very much!
I have enjoyed my four weeks of classes at Ixchel. It is a beautiful setting in which to learn Spanish, with a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Many thanks to my teachers, who have helped me to improve my Spanish.
My teacher Cintya at Ixchel was absolutely phenomenal. In just three days she gave me a grand tour of the Spanish language. In just three days I learned more Spanish than in my years of study.
I thoroughly enjoyed the staff, the organization of activities, and the family atmosphere at Ixchel. I will definitely return next year when I know more Spanish so I can talk at a higher level. Cintya is an extraordinary teacher, and I'm so honored to now have her as my first Guatemalan friend!
The school was very efficient and organized. Aside from learning the language, I loved the acceptance and resourcefulness when volunteering in the area. Alvaro drove us to where we wanted to volunteer and even participated with us! A great experience! Thanks a ton!
I studied for four weeks at the Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua and rapidly improved my Spanish so I can converse with local people in town and elsewhere. The teachers at this school are very nice and assist wherever possible to make learning Spanish easier.
For me it was a unique experience with lots of activities and a great studying atmosphere inside a garden pavilion. I recommend this school to anyone and look forward to returning here to further improve my Spanish.
I spent just under four weeks at Ixchel and was very impressed. My teacher was friendly, helpful and very adept at getting across the more intricate aspects of the language.
Every member of staff was always willing to put themselves out on your behalf. The atmosphere was welcoming and a great one for studying and meeting other like-minded people. The weekly activities were varied and enjoyable as were the spontaneous evening fiestas!
My homestay really embellished the whole experience, with tasty and interesting meals. The family were helpful, kind and always willing to chat to help me out with practicing my day's work. I did not meet a right-minded individual who would not highly recommend Ixchel to anyone.
I really enjoyed my time at the Ixchel school. The teachers were good and friendly. My Spanish has really improved and I feel more confident when travelling in in Guatemala. I will certainly recommend the school to my friends back in England.
Thank you very much for four weeks of studying here. My teacher was really great. I had a good laugh with him. My family was also great — good food and a very nice room.
We have studied here for two weeks. The school is really great, the headmaster is very nice and will help in anything you will need. The teachers really become your friends during the lessons. You will see that studying here is a great experience. The school offers very nice places to stay in with local families, which will help you very much with your Spanish.

I spent four wonderful weeks at the Ixchel school! I learned more than I had expected and the ambiance here was very helpful for meeting people and getting adjusted to life in Antigua. I had a great time and wish I could stay longer!
