Has there ever been a better time to start your Spanish Immersion than TODAY!!!
When do I pay for my lessons and house?
Regarding payment, you pay here in the school's office on your first day of classes, for everything. You do not have to pay anything in advance! You can pay with dollars, quetzals (at a rate of 7.8 will be used), traveler checks and credit card. I would not recommend credit card however since we have a 9% service charge over the total amount. Traveler checks are always recommendable as they are insured against loss or robbery. We do not accept personal cheques. We are not expensive, neither cheap, we offer our classes for a promedium comercial price that offers quality, specially for students just like you.
Do you have courses for children?
Yes. We are happy to teach children of any age or ability, and have been doing so for many years. Sevilla has a number of teachers whose educational specialisation is in children, and who have experience in teaching children. We would be happy to allocate any of these staff members to your child. These teachers will plan and structure the lessons in a child-friendly way, with games based activities and breaks should your child feel suited to this. They are also able to speak some English if or when necessary.
If a child comes and stays in the same room does he/she need to pay?
Children from 3 years old and up pay the normal price.
What is the average age of your students?
The majority of our students are in their 20s and 30s. However, we usually have a number of people aged 40-75 studying with us. We also have students as young as 6, many high school students and many retired students. All ages are welcome.
Why do you think are the best Spanish School in Antigua and what makes you different from other Spanish schools?
Sevilla is one of only a few schools in Antigua authorized by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education. It is certified by various local universities and has also been independently ranked in the top 4 schools in Antigua.
Sevilla has worked in conjunction with various groups and organizations such as KLM Airlines, US High School and Tour Groups as well as Foreign Diplomats from Embassies. Finally, Sevilla is authorized and recommended by The Tourism Institute of Guatemala (INGUAT) and various Travel Guides such as Lonely Planet and The Rough Guide.
Our teachers here are highly qualified professionals, most of whom have in excess of 10 years teaching experience, something which is not common practice in many other language schools. The director, Carlos, was himself a Spanish teacher for 5 years, and so is able to run his school with a level of understanding of his students and teachers that is superior to many other directors. We create an exceptionally friendly and integrated environment of students and teachers - something that enables us to enjoy an extremely high rate of returnees amongst our students, many of whom have so enjoyed their Guatemalan experience with us that they return for 3/6 months to further their language ability.
We are also located on a peaceful part of 1st avenue which has very little passing traffic. Our school is clean, spacious, and classes take place in two beautiful large open courtyards with garden.
I was hoping to do some volunteer work – possibly with children.
Yes we can accommodate this. We are currently working diffent projects, we will provide all this information once you are here at the school's office. There is no charge to work with our project.
