Study Spanish in Guatemala
Travel to Guatemala is not only gorgeous but cheap. It is one of the cheapest, or I should say, best-valued places on the planet to study full Spanish immersion. If you don’t believe me, do a Google search yourself. For the price of a pair of Lucky jeans. You can get the following:
- private Spanish lessons 4 hours a day, 5 days a week
- Host family accommodations for 7 days
- 3 meals a day for 6 days a week.
I have seen prices in other countries (Nicaragua, Ecuador) for $175- $250 for basically the same program, but you can do this in Guatemala for $85- $120 a week. Not all locations are created equal though.
Spanish in Antigua will run you $150-$180 a week *This is where I studied on December 2009- highly recommended school and city.
Spanish in San Pedro on Lake Atitlan will cost $80-$115
Spanish in Xela comes in about $150-$180
