Information about Guatemala

Guatemala, famous for its indigenous Maya influence, is filled with great cities, volcanoes, beaches and mountains. The rich Guatemalan culture and the warmth of its people will surely make your language travel experience an unforgettable one. See the ruins of El Mirador and Tikal, the old churches in Antigua or go climbing. Party at a large national holiday or a small area festival, which are often rooted in Guatemalan religious traditions and take delight in the traditional dances during those great fiestas. Drink a 'boj' or eat the popular fiesta dish 'Sak ik'.

Q&A - Questions and answers about Guatemala

  • What I would recommend is a combination of group and private, for example, 20 group lessons per week, combined with 5 or 10 private lessons per week (1 or 2 private lessons per day). That way, you can pay extra attention to the areas you struggle with and have space to ask questions that may not have had room for during the group course. If you only want to book private lessons, I recommend a maximum of 10-15 private lessons per week, as our brains often cannot absorb more.
