Learn Spanish in Guatemala
With Classes Overlooking Lake Atitlan
The Cooperativa Spanish School in San Pedro La Laguna Guatemala is proud of the depth of teaching experience and commitment to excellence all of our teachers posess. We offer one-on-one Spanish language instruction five days a week. You can choose to attend class for as few as 3 hours to as many as 6 hours daily. The Monday through Friday classes are held both in the mornings starting at 8 a.m. and in the afternoons starting at 2 p.m. We have no minimum or maximum number of weeks you are required to attend, the choice is yours. Generally speaking it is suggested that 3-weeks of immersion teaching will give you a great start at a working knowledge of the Spanish language.
Courses range from one week to one month or longer. Instruction ranges from 3 to 6 hours each day, 5 days a week. In addition to learning Spanish from the most experienced teachers in San Pedro, students have the opportunity to live in the home of a local family. Many students discover the richness of living within the culture, speaking Spanish in an immersion setting, and practicing their skills with members of their new family as the most satisfying way of developing their Spanish.
When you start your lessons you will be given an evaluation of your current knowledge of Spanish. Then you and your teacher will design a lesson plan based on your needs and your goals. This is the time for you to clearly express what you really want out of your time at the school. We are here to work with you to achieve your goals. We provide the learning materials. You only need to bring a notebook, Spanish-your language dictionary, and pens. You are welcome to bring any Spanish textbook you may be currently working with and our instructors will be glad to incorporate it into your curriculum. Our students come from many different countries with a variety of interests and experiences. We have had students as young as 7 years old and as seasoned as 70+ years of age. We are glad to accept entire families into our school. We can adjust our programs to include art and games for the younger students. Whether you come alone, with your family, or in a group you will quickly have new friends among the staff and other students.
