About the school

ICA’s Spanish school was founded in 1976 to provide personalized, one-to-one Spanish lessons to students of all ages and levels. Our teachers are professionals with extensive knowledge of grammar and experience with teaching methods, techniques, and activities to help you put what you learn in the classroom to use in the real world. In addition, all of our teachers have received the ‘Diploma for Teachers Specialized to Teach Spanish as a Second Language,’ given and evaluated by San Carlos University, the Ministry of Education, and the Tourist Institute of Guatemala.

The stay has been extreme valuable. I can definitly feel that I have learned a lot of Spanish in just one month. It has been a good experience, but I missed some privacy at the host family.

Fantastic school with good teacher

I had a great experience in Guatemala. I did not expect that I would fall in so quickly, but it helped that there were other students there. There were also several people from Denmark, which I did not expect. The teachers were super talented, and could quickly adapt to your level. The dance teacher Nestor is also super talented and the school director is really sweet and understanding. Everything was beyond expectations. The school is clearly recommendable.
