Why should you choose a Spanish School in Antigua, Guatemala?

Why should you study in Cooperacion Spanish School?
By choosing to study at the Cooperacion Spanish School you can rest assured that every teacher is dedicated to providing the optimal learning experience. After all, being both the teachers and owners, we each take full responsibility for your satisfaction while you study Spanish with us. But what is the biggest advantage to choosing a cooperative rather than a school with one owner? We can charge you a reasonable price for tuition and still pay our teachers a better wage than our competitors, ensuring that we attract only the most qualified instructors.

 

Escuela "Cooperación" is Different! We Have a System

The Escuela "Cooperación" is different from most other schools in Antigua because we have a well-developed system of teaching which includes structured materials created by our own experienced teaching staff. These materials are designed to supplement our focus on the oral practice of Spanish and allow you to continue your grammar studies outside the classroom. And, unlike the few other schools which have their own materials, we we don't charge extra for this. Our prices are among the best in town and include:
* A complete textbook of grammar
* A collection of homework to supplement the learning process
* Activities in the afternoon
* Coffee, tea and purified drinking water in the school
* Excellent teachers with years of experience

Why is a System Important?

Learning a language is not easy and sometimes not fun, but the fact is you must master the basics of grammar to communicate well in Spanish. Having a well-developed teaching system in place helps ensure that you will have a strong base of knowledge to help you progress with your Spanish speaking abilities. It also helps maintain consistency and avoid gaps in learning if you switch teachers, for example. Finally,whether you choose "Cooperación" or not, ask yourself the following question: if you end up with an inexperienced teacher will there be a systemin place to make sure that you still learn what you need in the order you need, or will you be at the mercy of that teacher’s personal experience?
As educators, we have an average ten years of experience or more in teaching Spanish to students from all over the world. We each have university degrees specializing in teaching Spanish grammar. We use this knowledge and experience to tailor our program to meet your particular level (beginning, advanced, and everything in between!) using an intensive one-on-one, total immersion approach. As part of our program, we can also arrange a home stay with a Guatemalan family for all or part of your time in Antigua. Not only does this provide a wonderful opportunity to practice what you learn in class, but you will also enjoy the unforgettable experience of seeing family life in Guatemala, first-hand.
