Online Spanish Courses for Students of All Levels

Why Study at Ixchel Spanish School?

When we founded the school in 1999, we didn't want to be just another Spanish school in a town where there were dozens of Spanish schools already. We wanted to be the best!

We have developed and perfected our own class materials based on a wide range of textbooks and our teachers receive continuous training, allowing them to further improve their knowledge of the Spanish language and use the latest teaching techniques.

Now our Spanish courses are also available via Skype!

The online courses are based on the class materials we use for our immersion courses here in Antigua Guatemala and taught by the same teachers, assuring the same high quality.

We offer flexible schedules so you can take your Spanish lessons when your workload permits.

The lessons are given via Skype video chat, which you probably have on your computer already. That's all you need! All class materials are online and you do not have to buy textbooks.

Try our online lessons for yourself! Take a free trial lesson and see if our online courses are right for you before you commit. Risk-free!

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.

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.
