Our approach to teaching Spanish:

  1. We begin by making sure students know the fundamental mechanics of Spanish and a that they have a basic vocabulary.
  2. Then, building on a solid foundation, we carefully develop a student's language skills for as long his or her studies continue.
  3. No language exists in a cultural void. Most of our students take room and board with a Guatemalan family and after class go with teachers on various activities and tours around the lake.
