Why Study Spanish Abroad?
Why Spanish Course Abroad?

During your waking hours abroad, all your senses are activated for rapid and optimum learning.

A Spanish course abroad gives you the tools to learn and the opportunity to put it into practice right away.

You will absorb and learn in a short time what could take years in a study program at home where Spanish environment is, at best, recreated but remains artificial.

Learning Spanish abroad is real and interactive. Every day offers new opportunities to participate in the culture of your temporary home away from home.

Communication as a goal

In Guatemala your learning does not stop when you leave the classroom, on the contrary, that's when it really starts. You are all of a sudden plunged into the Spanish world and have to manage situation by situation your communication goals and needs.
Understanding and delivering messages appropriately is the essence of the exciting adventure awaiting you in Guatemala. Mastering the maximum amount of real life situations to achieve communication is the goal.

The student's perspective
Spanish study abroad is more demanding because you have to communicate in Spanish, while finding new culturally adequate strategies to seek out interactions.

Some students find it difficult to accept not being prepared and totally in control of the whole learning process. Most professionals are used to being at the top in their field and starting at the bottom demands a lot of patience.

Learning management in a Spanish course abroad organizes motivating activities in order to provide the feeling of success at each proficiency level of the learning process.

The Instructor's perspective
One of the teachers primary function is to encourage discovery, as well as the development of a sense of adventure, a willingness to submerge in the environment and communicate. The role of the instructor is also to support students in their determination to seek out learning on their own.
