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 European...

Testimonials

3 months ago
I have been taking lessons over Skype several times a week with Letty Montezuma over the last year. My Spanish has improved dramatically and I feel comfortable in conversation as when I have been recently traveling in Central America. Letty is stellar teacher and a stellar conversationalist. First off, she normally normally works at Don Pedro de Alvarado (school is temporarily closed in COVID times) which in my opinion may be the best Spanish language school in Guatemala. Letty is very professionally competent in teaching with knowledge of grammatical theory and structure. She also knows enough English to help with some words. What makes Letty special is her being a true conversationist. Letty is modern, worldly, very smart and quick in wit and conversation. Our talks are always interesting and our spoken interplay flows easily and richly. Before we know, the hour is up. And there is always more to talk about. She reads the world news more than I ever do and tells me about events an...

Wonderful experience. I truly enjoyed learning with my teacher Osbilda who was very attentive and helped me push myself to the next level. I learned a lot in only 2 weeks last summer, but plan to do more when it is possible. I am considering taking some online courses at this point too.

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.

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.

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.

Spanish lessons online via Skype.
The Spanish school Don Pedro de Alvarado, is now offering personalized Spanish lessons online via Skype.

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.
