My Spanish Experience!
At relatively short notice I had decided to learn Spanish during my vacation. As no other country in Central and South America offers this extraordinary variety of culture and climate zones on smallest area I opted for Guatemala. Thanks to internet it was very simple finding a Spanish school in Antigua Guatemala and I decided for "Sevilla” Antigua Guatemala". I could select the hours per day and booked, via internet, classes for 6 weeks, from 8 o'clock to 12 o'clock. I did very much appreciate the school and still do. I chose to work with three different teachers, and found them all to be deeply engaged in giving you the best chances to progress in your spanish skills. Talking with the teachers I learned a lot about the historical and cultural background of Guatemala. And by the way, I progressed very much in my Spanish skills. The school offers many leisure-time facilities and helps you in getting to know Antigua and the surrounding countryside. Furthermore the school has its own internet access and, very important, a well filled coffee pot!! Further advantages of Sevilla Antigua are the accommodations. Via Sevilla you can also book the accommodation when you book your classes, is it in a Guatemalan family, where only Spanish is spoken, in the student accommodation, or in the hotel. The only risk with this journey consists of being caught by the charm of Guatemala and its inhabitants, which happened to me. For about a year I live in Antigua with my wife, an Antigueña, to whom I became acquainted during my vacations. Thus take care! If you have further questions, write me to the following address!

I’ve always wanted to learn and speak proper Spanish and when I was recommend by a friend to study at Sevilla I didn’t hesitate to travel to Antigua and begin my Language Immersion Experience. I studied Spanish for 8 months at Sevilla and my Spanish Skills improved within the first week and furthermore I have built lifetime friendships with the staff. They are some of the most loving and kind-hearted people I’ve ever met and they make your learning experience so much easier. Also if you have any questions about the School, Antigua or of Guatemala, they try their best to assist you in finding this information out, which I have appreciated. I would gladly recommend Sevilla to anyone interested in learning and speaking proper Spanish.

The activities at Sevilla were so much fun and a great way to meet other students I’ve made so many friends here and can’t wait to comeback.
I am happy to say that Sevilla exceeded my expectations and would defiantly recommend this school to anyone looking for quality teachers and value for money.
I arrived at Sevilla having taken three weeks of Spanish Class beforehand, and therefore with a very basic level of speech and comprehension. After 9 weeks of classes here, four hours daily, I had achieved a sufficient level of Spanish to find paid employment in the Guatemalan national office of a well known international NGO. The teachers here are a friendly, integrated group who immediately made me feel at ease and gave me every opportunity to practice my Spanish. They have time, patience and energy and every teacher I chose to work with allowed me to study at my own pace and in my own style. I am more than happy to recommend Sevilla to anyone looking for a Spanish school, for whatever purpose, and hope that you will not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about my experience there.
