Antigua Schools

People all over the world come to Antigua to learn Spanish, and many travelers decide to take classes just to pass the time between one hike and the next. The city boasts more than 70 Spanish schools for travelers to choose from. Nevertheless, it is important to do your homework before choosing one.


Thoroughly research the schools' websites and ask as many details as possible. A good question to ask is how well prepared the teachers are. Almost all are native speakers of Spanish, but some lack adequate experience or training. Ask if there is a registration fee and if books and other materials are included in the price. Some schools will give you a discount if you take more than a few classes or if you and your friends book together in advance.


If possible, try to visit as many schools as possible before making any decision. Make sure to ask locals and other visitors about their recommendations. A number of schools provide additional services, like guided tours and dancing lessons. All things considered, even if it was not part of your original trip plan, taking Spanish classes in Antigua can be a great addition to your overall Guatemala experience.
