Immersion Spanish Courses in Antigua Guatemala

Spanish for Law Enforcement Personnel

In areas where many people from Latin America live, police officers and other law enforcement professionals often have to deal with victims, criminals and witnesses that speak no or very little English. Communicating with them can be very difficult and time-consuming if you don't speak Spanish and there is much potential for misunderstandings and lost opportunities.

Spanish for Law Enforcement Personnel was designed to teach you the necessary language skills to communicate with Spanish speakers in a wide variety of situations you encounter in the course of your duty.

Ixchel was the first Spanish school in Antigua Guatemala that developed a special course for volunteers. We have expanded and perfected Spanish for Law Enforcement Personnel for several years and received much praise from participants who feel that this course goes a long way towards preparing them for their volunteer work assignments in Latin America.

Key to the success of this course is that you will not simply memorize lists of words and phrases. That's a necessary part of it, of course, but we don't stop there! Exercises, practice conversations and roll play with your teacher will help you to practice your skills in realistic situations and boost your confidence in your ability to communicate effectively with native Spanish speakers.

Speaking Spanish is a valueable asset that will help you to get ahead in these difficult economic times. Sign up for your Spanish course today!

What Our Students Say about Spanish for Law Enforcement Personnel ...

Coen van Berkel

The Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua is a great place to learn Spanish. The school is about five minutes away from the plaza.

I followed a 3 week course with the “maestro” called Hellen. A very nice and good teacher that welcomed me in the Spanish language. Every morning at 8 a.m. my classes with Hellen started just in front of my room!

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.

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.
