Do I have to begin my course on Monday or can I start on any day of the week?
Unlike other Spanish school in Antigua, we are very flexible with our schedules and allow our students to begin their courses whenever it's convenient for them. You can begin on any day of the week, even on Saturday or Sunday.
Can I have classes on Saturday and/or Sunday?
Yes, if you are in a hurry or have only a short time in Antigua, we can arrange for you to have classes on Saturday and/or Sunday. We recommend, however, that you take off at least one day per week. You can't study all the time!
How can I pay for my course? Do you accept credit cards?
You can pay with US dollars, travelers checks or Guatemalan Quetzals. We also accept all major credit cards, but due to the high bank fees in Guatemala credit card payments carry an 8 percent surcharge.
Can I change my teacher if we don't get along?
Certainly! We want you to be happy and enjoy your classes. While our teachers are well-trained and very competent, we recognize of course that there are personality conflicts occasionally. Requests to change teachers are quite rare at our school, but if you want to change, we can usually give you another teacher from one day to the next.
Do I need to bring textbooks and a dictionary?
We provide all the class materials you need, so bringing textbooks is not necessary. A dictionary is something no Spanish student can do without; we can lend you one for the duration of your classes if need be, but we recommend you get your own dictionary and bring it. You can also buy one in Antigua, but while Spanish-English dictionaries are readily available, other languages are hard to find here.
Can I change my schedule if I find it's too much for me or not enough?
Yes, absolutely! If you feel that another schedule would work better for you, you can change the following week; or even the following day, if need be.
