About Antigua Antigua, known as the “old city of Guatemala,” is a beautiful city. Streets lined with cobblestones and an abundance of authentic colonial buildings, it has been given the rare World Heritage title by UNESCO to preserve its charm and unique atmosphere. The relaxed environment of Antigua offers court cafes with flourishing gardens and fountains, very affordable high class international cuisine or delicious local food as well as lively nightlife at the many bars, salsa clubs and discos. Surrounded by majestic volcanoes and green-clad mountains that border the highlands of Guatemala, Antigua is also an excellent base to travel from if you want to see more of the country. It is one of the most popular cities to study Spanish in all of Latin America.
Activities and Excursions Typically there are sporting activities, excursions to a nearby village, visits to a cultural center or museum, and a culture class at the school. If there is a local festival or celebration happening, we include that in the activity program, give detailed explanations about them, and make sure you get to experience them in the traditional way. Furthermore, once a week everyone goes out on a "Pub Night" to relax and get to know each other. We also offer Salsa classes every Tuesday in our new dance studio.
Our Opinion With its welcoming atmosphere and beautiful surroundings, Antigua is the ideal place to study. Guatemala is really a great country to come and learn Spanish. The accent spoken tends to be slower and clearer than many other Latin American countries or even Spain, which makes it easier for you to pronounce and understand.
