While in Antigua, all our students will take Spanish lessons individually and/or in small groups for 3 hours per day. This will give you an opportunity to learn some conversational Spanish, so that you might communicate more comfortably with the locals.
The school we've selected from the MANY in Antigua is Academia De Espanol Guatemala. Check out their website, and you'll see that in addition to educational programs, they arrange tourism trips and other cultural activities. And also very important, they have a pool. So be sure to pack your suit!
Here are some photos of Mary and I learning Spanish (different school, but same basic feel...):)
