My son was at this school for two weeks with his wonderful teacher Wendy. From the beginning he felt welcomed and was able to cover a lot of vocabulary and culture. They went on excursions, played games and surprised me by how much he really loved this school. We are going back this summer! I highly recommend Don Pedro de Alvarado school and in particular his teacher Wendy.

Excellent experience at this school with my teachers Carolina and Evelyn. I studied for a week and really feel as though I had an opportunity to brush up on my Spanish in a warm and supportive environment. I chose to study for 6 hours daily with four hours in the morning with Carolina and 2 hours in the afternoon with E. Honestly even though I’ve studied Spanish in school and college previously I probably would have been better off just doing 4 hours daily. After that my brain really struggled to practice and retain much more information. Further most afternoons the school offers optional enrichment activities which are accompanied by the teachers and other students and still provide an opportunity to keep practicing your Spanish while socializing with the other participants. This was a godsend for me as I was traveling slowly. I also chose to eat lunch daily at the school which was cheap, plentiful and delicious. They also offered complimentary coffee service during the break and ...

I was studying in Don Pedro de Alvarado for a week but it was sufficient to improve my Spanish to a really good level and to spend time with the other students and teachers through the activities in the afternoon. The school is located in the centre of Antigua with a very beautiful garden where the classes and the activities take place. My host family was amazing. They took care of me all the time, giving me recommendations and talking only in Spanish. The teachers are really nice, well educated and ready to help you. You can adjust your class according to your needs. But the most amazing is that the school help to feed the children from the village of San Felipe de Jesus which I consider it very important since 49% of the children below 5 years old are malnourished in Guatemala. The school gives you the opportunity to spend time with the children by eating together and by helping them with their homework. The children are amazing and it was a pleasure to spend my afternoon with t...

Customize Your Trip 
You may begin your course of study on any day of the week, including weekends. 
Studying on Sunday incurs a small extra charge. Your Family Homestay can also begin on any day of the week, and if you wish to stay on after your language course is finished, days can be added. Prices are pro-rated for extra days of both study and homestay, so you will pay only for the extra days that you attend classes and stay with your host family. We are flexible and happy to accommodate your needs and desires.

Living with a family. 
Experience a New Culture
The best way to learn about a new culture is to live with a local family. You will have the opportunity to speak the language, eat local cuisine, and develop close relationships with real Guatemalan families. All of our experienced host families offer warm hospitality and integration to each and every student guest. The minimum stay with a host family is seven consecutive nights, and prices are very reasonable. We offer three distinct standards of homestay, from rustic to typical Colonial living.

One student, two teachers.
One student, two teachers. 
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.

Targeted Learning
Our teachers specialize in targeting the specific needs of each and every student. Because your coursework is delivered on a one teacher to one student ratio, your teacher can focus on your particular situation and will design your coursework around your unique goals. This approach provides each student with a very efficient program of study aimed at improving Spanish grammar, usage, and conversational skills. Each teacher develops a bespoke plan, dependent upon the needs of the individual student and the amount of time given over to a serious study of the language. The resulting instruction is intensive, and progress can be realized very quickly when both parties are committed to the process. We recommend six hours of study per day for optimal achievement.

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.
