Je viens de passer 3 semaines en août 2017 à Don Pedro de Alvarado Spanish school.
C'est mon deuxième séjour, l'an dernier 4 semaines en juillet avec mes professeurs Angela 4 heures par jour et Betty 2 heures par jour.
Cette année j ai étudié 4 heures par jour et on m a confiée de nouveau à Angela.
On a poursuivi mes apprentissages et pratiqué beaucoup la prononciation.
Je suis encore une fois enchantée de mon séjour.
Cette fois-ci mon conjoint m accompagnait et j ai été bien fière de lui faire découvrir ce beau milieu d'apprentissage.
On etait tous les deux bien content de participer un peu de façon volontaire à la mission d'aide aux enfants de cette école.
Il y a beaucoup d activité pour favoriser les échanges entre les étudiants d'espagnol.repas et sorties.
La famille hôte sélectionnée pour nous par l école était très accueillante et on est revenus la tête pleine de souvenirs et désireux de revivre un jour dans la belle ville d'Antigua.
Les week-ends ont été bien occupés ,cest facile même pour les gens seuls de découvrir les beaux sites du Guatemala avec les petits voyagistes et les forfaits peu onéreux..
Un beau mixte vacanceset études en immersion .je suis satisfaite de mes progrès et je recommande sans hésitation cette école pour son approche très professionnelle et personnalisée.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Don Pedro de Alvarado. The school is beautiful and close to everything in Antigua. The teachers and staff were wonderful, patient, and caring. I studied 6 hours a day with Dalia in the morning and Wendy in the afternoon and the time flew by. I highly recommend them both. Not only did they teach me Spanish but they also helped me get acclimated to a totally different culture. My home stay was with Margoth who owns a panaderia. Despite a language barrier, she and her family made me feel at home. The food was wonderful and they were a tremendous help with my Spanish. I highly recommend Don Pedro de Alvarado Spanish School, in fact I hope to return next summer for a longer stay.

I have tried to learn Spanish in a classroom setting but have been too self conscious since I struggle with languages. I decided I needed an immersion class and my friend recommended Don Pedro. I studied at Don Pedro for 5 weeks, 6 hours M-F. I studied with Heidi in the morning and Evelyn in the afternoon.

Even after only 2 days I was already feeling more comfortable. Neither of my teachers ever made me feel self conscious or embarrassed even when I said the most ridiculous things! Since I was starting with almost no Spanish, except for a few random words, Heidi would take me on walks to learn and practice, such as the market, the bank, the office supply store. Obviously, I was able to get errands done while practicing my Spanish! On days when I just was not able to focus or was becoming frustrated, my teaches adjusted to activities such as games that practiced vocabulary, conversation in "Spanslish" or a walk. They always knew what I needed each class.

The food at the school is AMAZING! Each week we had one breakfast, one lunch and one dinner (for free) and on Fridays the option to eat with the children who study there (donation). It was a great way to interact with other teachers and staff as well as other students. Everyone who works at the school is wonderful, welcoming and fun.

I am in love with the garden and miss my mornings drinking coffee while listening to birds, checking on the turtles and practicing Spanish.

I was placed with an amazing family around the corner from the school who took great care of me and practiced Spanish with me during dinner. When I hurt myself my last week, my teachers checked in on me daily and my adopted mother made sure I had everything I needed!
Bad Points
I plan to return to continue my study of Spanish but unfortunately, I think DP may be a little above my price range this time around, which I suppose is only bad for me!

Excellent language school in Antigua

Very good

Review

Good Points
I had a very good experience at Don Pedro de Alvarado language school. On my first day, all of the teachers came over to me and said hello and introduced themselves, making me feel welcome. My teacher, Maria, was a skilled teacher who taught me the necessary language and then went back through what we covered and reviewed and practiced it with me. She had a lot of patience for my beginner language. We went out walking around the town one afternoon and had a coffee together, and that was a fun and worthwhile learning experience. I only studied for one week, and I did not have any negative experience with them.
Bad Points
No complaints. I actually can't comment on the activities since I did no participate.
