Our school suggests a 6 hours a day course.
We find that the most successful students, the ones who achieve the most fluency and accuracy in the language, are the students who study for six hours each day. This approach provides the student with a very efficient program designed to teach and improve Spanish grammar, usage, and conversational skills. The student studies with one teacher each morning from 8 a.m. until 12 noon with the primary focus being on grammar and usage. In the afternoon, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m., the student will study with another teacher who will concentrate on improvements in conversational skills. Activities usually take place in the afternoon or the evening. Most of them are free; others cost just a few dollars for transportation and/or entrance fees. For students who are working 6 hours, the teacher will always make alternative arrangements to make up for time lost due to afternoon activities. The time will be make up between for four and six on weekday afternoons
Make your own program.
A successful course of study depends upon how much the students define their desires and goals with the teacher. Each teacher develops a bespoke plan, dependent upon the needs of the individual student and the amount of time to be given over to study. The resulting instruction is intensive, and progress can be realized very quickly when both parties are committed to the process.

Guatemala is a very safe destination:
Guatemala is really a very safe destination. I would urge the liberal use of common sense when in the country. Guatemalan people are very friendly and accommodating, but one must realize that many people are poor in comparison to North Americans and Europeans who travel to Guatemala. It is wise to keep good track of money and passports, and to be aware of one's environment, especially at night. Antigua has its own Tourist Police force in case of any concerns. When climbing to Cerro de la Cruz or going up the volcano it is always wise to ask the tourist police to accompany you. Always carry a photocopy of your passport, but lock the actual document safely away when it is not in use. Try to make sure that someone at "home" knows your itinerary. It is easy to keep in touch with family and friends using the free computers and wi-fi available within the school.
