I truly enjoyed my experience at the Ixchel Spanish School. It was a great way for me to brush up on my Spanish skills after spending 4 years without classes. The one-on-one teaching style that Ixchel offers is a highlight of the program. The pace and content of the class is designed around you.
I liked the cultural activities the school organized. It gave me a chance to learn more about the country and its people. I went on a tour of a Macadamia farm, coffee farm, various trips to pueblos and salsa classes. The town of Antigua is also beautiful. There is a mix of modern and traditional restaurants, people, and stores. I would definitely like to return to Ixchel in the future.
Over the course of four weeks and eighty hours of one-on-one Spanish tutoring at Ixchel, my conversational skills have grown more than I could have imagined. The school has really developed an efficient and fun study environment and a curriculum that easily conforms to any level of language proficiency.
The professors and the secretary are wonderful and helpful, and the school is located in a perfect part of town. If I had the time, I would extend my course with Ixchel for several more months. I cannot advocate enough the power of language immersion on a daily basis, and Ixchel is the perfect place to begin.
