Spanish Courses at Ixchel Spanish School

No doubt, Spanish is one of the most important languages in the world, and its importance is bound to increase even further. Globalization of the economy, international travel and the growing Hispanic population in many areas make speaking Spanish a necessity. Learning to speak Spanish – or improving your fluency – will give both your professional and your social life a boost.

While there is no shortage of Spanish schools, both in Latin American and in other countries, the quality of the school you choose can make your Spanish course a smashing success or a waste of time.

There are Spanish schools and there are Spanish schools!

To make rapid progress and become comfortable communicating with native Spanish speakers, you need a top-quality school with a proven track record and well trained and motivated teachers.

Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua Guatemala has been in business continuously since 1999 and we are recommended by thousands of satisfied students as well as all major travel guides. The quality of our Spanish courses is second to none and since the lessons are one on one, we can adapt them precisely to your needs, interests and learning style.

Besides our general Spanish courses for students of all levels we also offer special courses for professionals, travelers, volunteers and children. And if you can't travel to Guatemala to take part in an immersion course or want to continue working on your Spanish after you return home, you can also take our Spanish courses online via Skype!

Immersion Spanish Courses

An immersion Spanish course is by far the fastest and most effective way to learn Spanish. Taking several hours of Spanish lessons a day and being surrounded by Spanish speakers round the clock, you will literally soak up the language.

Our Spanish courses are designed to make you speak, speak, speak! Of course you will also acquire a solid knowledge of the Spanish grammar and a good working vocabulary, but we don't stop there. We will make sure you'll be able to apply what you've learned in class and communicate effectively with native Spanish speakers.

To make your trip to Guatemala even more memorable, we provide not only Spanish lessons and family homestays – the traditional parts of an immersion course – but also a full range of services to help you make the best of your stay in Guatemala.

We arrange extracurricular activities every day and tours to other great destinations in Guatemala every weekend. We can provide childcare if you travel with young children and of course we have wifi in the school that you can use free of charge whenever we are open.

Make the best of your valuable vacation time! Study at Ixchel in the unique and charming colonial city of Antigua Guatemala!

We Do Not Believe in One-Size-Fits-All

Choose the Spanish Course that Meets Your Needs!

Here at Ixchel Spanish School we don't believe in One-Size-Fits-All.

We understand that a nurse taking a patient's medical history needs different skills than a flight attendant giving safety instructions or a businessman negotiating a contract.

Where other Spanish schools fail, Ixchel excels: We teach you the kind of Spanish you really need!

Over the course of many years, we have developed and perfected special courses for professionals, travelers, volunteers, children of all age groups, and even for Spanish teachers who want to perfect their knowledge of the Spanish grammar and improve their fluency.

Last but not least we also offer Spanish courses for students who want to prepare for the DELE exam.

Well-trained and Experienced Teachers

Ixchel's teachers are all native Spanish speakers and have received extensive training. Most of the teachers have more than five years of experience teaching Spanish as a second language to foreign students, some have been with Ixchel since the school was founded in 1999.

Teaching Spanish isn't just a job for our teachers. They take an active interest in your progress and do whatever they can to help you reach the goals you have set for yourself.
