Welcome to Ixchel Spanish School in Antigua Guatemala

Online Spanish Courses

While immersion Spanish courses are without doubt the fastest and most efficient way to learn Spanish, unfortunately not everyone has the time and resources to travel to Antigua Guatemala and dedicate several weeks to learning Spanish. Professionals who work full time and families with school-age children often find it all but impossible to travel for a substantial amount of time and are thus hampered in their ability to learn Spanish.

But there is a solution: Learn Spanish online via Skype!

With our online Spanish courses you can learn Spanish anywhere, anytime! Flexible schedules allow you to dedicate as much or as little time to your Spanish lessons as you can fit into your busy day.

Our Spanish courses are available online and are taught by the same great teachers that have made our immersion courses famous all around the world. All class materials are available online and you have access to them whenever you have time to study.

Even if you can dedicate only a few hours a week to learning Spanish, you will improve your Spanish step by step because you work with an experienced teacher who takes an active interest in your progress, explains the lessons and practices with you until you are able to apply them confidently in realistic conversations.

We use Skype video calling so you and your teacher can see each other – almost like in a classroom!

Online Spanish Courses for Students of All Levels

Online lesson Online lesson Online Lesson

Online courses are available for all levels, from beginner to advanced. For each level, we have developed extensive study material, which is based on the material we use for our immersion courses in Antigua Guatemala and adapted to online use.

The online Spanish courses contain grammar lessons, vocabulary building, oral and written exercises and lots of conversation practice. This balanced approach makes sure that you will be able to apply the lessons you've learned and use them in realistic everyday situations.

Taking an online Spanish course is ideal for

  • beginners who want to get a feel of the Spanish language before they commit to a more intensive course, like an immersion course in Latin America
  • intermediate students who have studied Spanish before and want to keep progressing but don't have the opportunity to enroll in a Spanish course in their home town
  • advanced students who are already fairly fluent and want to practice and perfect their skills
  • professionals who need to learn Spanish or improve their fluency but can study only intermittently as their workload permits
  • high school or college students who need a little help preparing for their next Spanish exam

We will tailor your online Spanish course precisely to your needs and requirements!

Flexible Schedules

Online lesson Online lesson Online lesson

We realize that you have many obligations in your daily life and do our best to schedule your online Spanish lessons so they don't interfere with them.

We are flexible and adapt to your requirements!

Our online Spanish courses don't have a rigid timetable. You can take as few or as many lessons per week as you like and you can decide as you go. Whether you want to take it easy and have only a couple of lessons a week or want to study intensively every day, we'll set up the schedule that's right for you!

Taking only a few lessons per week is a good choice if you only want to get a feel of the Spanish language before you decide to invest more time and resources in a more intensive course. Advanced students who are already fairly fluent will also find an hour or two a week very useful to keep practicing and perfect their skills.

More intensive schedules are available for students who want to progress rapidly and have the time to dedicate an hour or two a day to their studies.

Most important: You don't need to plan your entire course at the beginning. We are flexible and planning just a few days ahead is fine with us. This way you can adapt your schedule as your workload changes.

Online lessons are available anytime between 7:00 am and 9:00 pm Guatemalan time, seven days a week, year round.

Guatemala is on Central Time (GMT -6:00 hours) year round and does not observe daylight saving time.

What Our Students Say ...

Ron Gunter

Ana Lucia is the best teacher I have ever had. I took 3 Spanish classes at my University and have had another online teacher from another company but nobody is as good as Ana Lucia. She is very patient and very good at explaining things I never understood from other teachers. In fact, because of how much I like the online classes, I am going to spend a week at the school when I go to Guatemala a month from now.

Anyone that is serious about learning Spanish should try their online classes, they are affordable and it is as if the teacher were sitting beside you.

I love Ixchel and my tutors Ana and Mariela. The online courses fit my schedule and I find the staff very accommodating. Plus, my Spanish is improving!

I can’t wait to bring my family to Guatemala this summer to study in person.
