THE CLASSES

There will be a one to one student - teacher ratio which will facilitate the maximum attention possible for the student and s/he will be total immersed in Spanish.  The classes will develop with a plan made by the teacher while considering the individual student’s strengths and weaknesses.  The grammatical content will be imparted with examples and exercises.  Flexibility is a characteristic of the class in accordance with the needs and capacity of the student. 

THE FAMILY

The family is another element that will help the student learn Spanish.  As well as providing lodging and meals, the family will be an environment to practice Spanish while talking with the children and the parents.  They are simple but very hospitable.  The student will know the way of life, and how a rural popti’ family from Guatemala thinks and acts.
