How does it work? .....We have well established language schools in Guatemala City and Coban town and sister schools in Antigua and Eco-Cabana, in the countryside close to Coban town.
The Learning Experience.Our Spanish classes reflect the basic philosophy of our school, which puts an emphasis on the importance of interaction and constant feedback to help you learn a foreign language. Classes are kept small, with a maximum of four students, ensuring that there is ample opportunity for student-teacher interaction and leaving the door open for wider group conversations.Classes utilize a textbook as well but primary emphasis is placed on a dynamic classroom environment that encourages learning by actively engaging you in the learning process.
All schools follow the same tailored Spanish program unique to Oxford Language Center, so that should you wish to learn at more than one of our centers, you can continue where you left off without delay. Our staff at your new destination will already be up to speed with your progress before you even arrive!
To extend the learning environment outside the classroom, all of our students are encouraged (but not required) to stay with a local family where you'll be able to practice Spanish and learn important basic vocabulary.As our schools function as part of the community, we can guarantee you home stays with a local family in a clean, safe, environment.
