Can’t Travel? – Don’t Let That Stop Your Spanish Learning

Just because you can’t get to Guatemala doesn’t mean you can’t study with local Spanish teachers at the Mountain School or in Xela. We make it easy for you to learn Spanish with native instructors. The Mountain School and PLQ offer online classes via Skype at affordable rates.

Ruth is a very competent, patient, and fun teacher. We have conversations about all sorts of things and she is great with gentle prompts and correction. The reading together and the homework exercises are terrific practice for me.

Studying on-line with Maria José has brought me straight back to Guatemala. My Spanish has improved! I am also waking up to the daily realities of what is happening in the communities surrounding La Escuela de la Montaña. I am enjoying my lessons, as well as how my studies are an act of solidarity with a place and people that I love.
