Top Guatemala


In Guatemala, Spanish is the most widely spoken language. Guatemalans speak a relatively clear form of Spanish, which makes this country a good place take language classes. Antigua has a particularly large number of Spanish schools; Quetzaltenango is another good option if you're looking for a place to learn. Due to Guatemala's Mayan ancestry, indigenous languages are still predominant in more rural sections of the country. There are estimated to be around 2 million K’iche’ speakers, primarily located in the highland regions. Mam is another commonly used language, mainly in western Guatemala. If you're interested in learning indigenous languages, the larger language centers usually offer classes.
