GROUP classes are comprised of a maximum of 4 students per teacher. The advantages with group classes are the special group dynamics: group discussions and exercises, learning by listening to the questions of the other students, being able to talk about the classes and compare what you have understood. PRIVATE classes are taught one-on-one (one student per teacher). Private classes, of course, allow you to focus exclusively on your particular needs and interests, and you advance exactly at your own pace.
We offer you a wide variety of programs at Casa de Lenguas, all with very high standards and including the study materials. Apart from the Regular Spanish Programs, we have MEDICINA, ACTIVA, Spanish & Salsa and Spanish & Horseback Riding. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need advice on which program would suit you best or how many hours per day would be appropriate for you. You can start classes in any program any Monday, all through out the year.
Next year we are offering for the second time this special-interest program:
3 week Summer Workshop 2007
This program is for people interested in learning about International Development issues, historical backgrounds and political situations through seeing for themselves and getting some hands-on experience. While it is particularly suited for somebody who wants to work with International Development Cooperation or within the International Relations field there are no previous academic studies required, anybody with interest in and commitment to social development may participate. All levels of Spanish are accepted. You should be prepared for a high tempo schedule and while during most of the program you will be staying with middle-class Guatemalan families, some parts of the travel part entail roughing it a bit - basic sleeping arrangements etc - in order to get off the beaten track and discover some more rustic parts of the country.
GUATEMALA DEVELOPING consists of 3 main parts:
The Spanish classes are given at Casa de Lenguas in Antigua Guatemala. The school is a beautiful remodeled colonial home with a lush court yard. Classes are held indoors and outdoors. The host families providing room & board live close to the school, no more than a 15 minute walk away. The project visits are scheduled both during the Spanish Program and the travel portion. The volunteering placements are in and around Antigua.
GUATEMALA DEVELOPING is a 3 week group program, scheduled between June 10th and June 30th 2007. If there is an independent group of at least 5 people it can also start any Sunday throughout the year. The program can be extended with extra weeks of classes and/or volunteering.<:p>
You can make your reservation by filling out the on-line Registration Form and paying a deposit of $100. Full payment is due no later than 6 weeks prior to program start: April 29th 2007. If applying after this date, the program has to be paid in full at the time of reservation.
CdL reserves the right to cancel the program if the group minimum of 5 participants is not reached, in which case the program cost will be fully refunded. Participants are responsible for their own suitable travel insurance.
