Proyecto Lingüístico Francisco Marroquín

Founded in 1969, Francisco Marroquin is the oldest language school in Antigua. It is located less than one block from La Merced church and is run as a non-profit. It teaches Spanish, Kaqchikel Maya, Kiche, Mam, Q’eqchi and other Mayan languages by special arrangement. Program length is flexible although they recommend a minimum of four weeks for intermediate-level students. A 30 minute Foreign Service Institute type oral or written exam can be requested to evaluate Spanish competency. Classes can be taken in the lovely garden under ruined arches or in individual mini-classrooms. Facilities include WiFi, an Internet café and a library, and costs for field trips vary according to activity. Students are encouraged to stay with a host family to further their practice.
