What Is Included?

We provide all class materials including notebooks and pens. The only thing you need to bring is a dictionary. You can buy a Spanish-English dictionary in Antigua, if you don't want to burden your luggage with it, but other languages are hard to find here.

At the end of your course we can provide a certificate of attendance upon request. The certificate details the dates of your course, number of hours studied, and the level you've reached.

Free coffee, tea and purified water are available during your lessons. Free wi-fi is available throughout the school building round the clock.

Tuition does not include accommodation, transportation, activities, or weekend tours.

Students who stay for 4+ weeks and take at least 20 hours per week receive a discount of US$30.00 on their weekly tuition.

Groups of 5+ students who take at least 20 hours per week receive a discount of US$30.00 per person on their weekly tuition.

Students with a schedule of 20 or 25 hours per week who take their classes in the afternoon receive a US$30.00 discount on their weekly tuition.

Course Dates

The school is open year round and you can begin your Spanish course whenever it is convenient for you. You do not have to begin on a Monday.

Classes can begin on any day of the week. For instance, if you begin on Wednesday, your class week is Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Monday and Tuesday of the following week. Alternatively, you can also take lessons on the weekend and have classes from Wednesday through Sunday. We can set up your lessons however it works best for you.

School Holidays

Ixchel Spanish School is open year round. We are only closed on a handful of major holidays:

  • New Year's Day (1 January)
  • Good Friday (19 April 2019)
  • Independence Day (15 September)
  • All Saints' Day (1 November)
  • Christmas Day (25 December)

Classes missed because of a holiday can be made up by taking extra hours on other days. If that is not practical, we will prorate your tuition.

How Does It Work?

The driver who is picking you up at the airport will be waiting for you at the exit of the arrival area, holding a sign with your name. He will be easy to spot. He will take you directly to the school or your homestay.

We will keep an eye on your flight and if it is delayed, the driver will wait for you.

If your transfer is from Antigua to the airport, you will be picked up at the school or your homestay and taken directly to the entrance of the departure area.

Availability

Airport transfer is available anytime, day or night, including weekends and national holidays.

Free Transfer for Children

Children under the age of 12 years can ride along for free together with their parents or guardian.

Terms of Payment

No advance payment or deposit is required to secure your reservation. Paying when you arrive in Antigua is fine.

However, if you prefer to prepay, we can also accept payments by bank transfer.

We accept US dollars and Guatemalan Quetzals – whatever works best for you. We also accept all major credit/debit cards, but due to the high bank fees for card processing in Guatemala, we have to charge an 8 percent surcharge for credit/debit card payments.
