Studying at San Pedro Spanish School was one of the best decision I have taken in my whole trip across Central America. My girlfriend and I decided to take spanish classes in the beginning of our trip to perfect our spanish skills. Ramón, the owner of the school, arranged everything in a few minutes and the next day, we were starting our first class and moving in with our host family. The format is one teacher per student and the content of the lesson is tailormade according to one’s level of spanish. Therefore, in only a week, I felt like I have learned more than ever! All the staff at the school is lovely (special thanks to Ani, our lovely teacher, and Mario who took care of the organizing and coordinating all the activities). At the same time, we were staying in the Garcia-Gonzalez family. Directly from day one, we felt like home! Maida and Mauricio took good care of us with delicious food, a very clean room and a private bathroom. One day, Maida took us out and organized a tour in San Juan to show us the nicest places. On another day, she gave us a cooking class (we cooked tamales; one of the traditional dish in Guatemala). We could not have asked for more! Everything was litteraly perfect and we highly recommend this school. I also need to mention that it is really cheap compared to the other packages offered by other schools around. The school is also highly flexible (you can decide when you want to start and end the experience). Thank you for everything!

Muchas gracias por el tiempo grandioso. Fue una gran experiencia. Sí tu quieres aprender español y aprender más sobre la cultura guatemalteca, te puedo recomendar ir a San Pedro. Me encantó mucho. Estaba muy feliz con mi maestra Saydy. Ella es una maestra con mucha experiencia, flexibilidad, un sentido de humor y sabe como hacer que las lecciones sean variadas y aleccionadores. También mi experiencia con Rosario y su familia amable (mi familia anfitriona) fue hermosa - con conversaciones interesantes, aprender español con jugar con los niños y comidas muy deliciosas. Aprendí mucho y estoy muy agradecida de haber conocido a personas tan maravillosas. Gracias, San Pedro Spanish School!

Cette école de langue est fantastique! Mon mari et moi étions seuls avec une professeure pendant 3 semaines de cours. Nous avons vraiment évolué en espagnol et gagné beaucoup d’assurance. Merci à Veronica et Evelyn ainsi qu’à Ramon et Eligio pour leur aide. En plus des cours, tous les jours il y a des activités planifiées par l’école de San Pedro. De plus, le lieu pour étudier est vraiment motivant et agréable. Merci à vous tous!

We had a fantastic week at San Pedro Spanish School with our wonderful teacher, Saydy! She adapted the lessons to suit to our level, taking note of the gaps we had in knowledge (beyond what we mentioned we were interested in learning). Beyond that we had lots of fun in the lessons and a lot of opportunities to speak about a wide range of topics. Thanks also to Mario who helped was very flexible when we wanted to change the timing of our lessons and the days we were staying in our homestay. And finally the location of the school itself is such a bonus as (weather permitting) you can have your lessons in outdoor cabins overlooking the lake!

Great spanish school, lessons in the beautiful garden, right by the lake. The extra activities during the week were great, especially the salsa class. A huge thank you to both my teachers - Fabiola and Raul. They were a great team and worked together to make the most of my study time. They both made things easy to understand and I left with a huge leap forward in my spanish learning. Thank you!

Nous avons passé deux semaines inoubliables. Arrivés avec un niveau d'espagnol proche du néant, la progression en deux semaines est, pour nous, inespérée. Clemente notre professeur a été extrêmement pédagogue et patient. Le tout dans un cadre décontracté au bord du lac Atitlan. Nous avons vraiment adoré l'alternance entre théorie, exercices et dialogues. Rien de plus passionnant que d'apprendre l'espagnol au travers d'échanges sur la vie et la culture au Guatemala. J'ai appris grâce à lui plus en 2 semaines qu'en 5 ans d'espagnol au collège/lycée. Una vez más muchas gracias Clemente fue une placer aprender con tigo 🙏 Par ailleurs l'école propose de nombreuses activités optionnelles et souvent gratuites les après midi (randos, visites, danse, clubs de conversation, etc), et ils sont extrêmement arrangeant et souples, une équipe en or. Nous sommes restés les 2 semaines dans une famille d'accueil formidable d'une grande hospitalité et générosité, la famille de Mauricio et Maida. Chambre confortable et spécialités locales et différentes tous les jours, matin midi et soir. Je le conseille mille fois à ceux qui souhaitent pratiquer encore plus la langue et découvrir le “vrai” Guatemala et San Pedro. Nous garderons un souvenir ému de notre passage dans cette si belle famille. Aurélie et Antoine (Aurelia y Antonio) de 🇨🇵
