Good Points
Overall I had an excellent expressive at San Pedro. My teacher was Humberto. He is very Experienced and it shows. He is very methodical in his teaching; he is able to break up learning Spanish into sizable units and clearly and concisely teach and create lesson plans to tackle each one. He was also extremely kind and gave me advice for all of the following: tourist attractions, food (it was incredible), things to do in San Pedro, ect.

I had a marvelous time and would recommend San Pedro Spanish school to a friend.
Bad Points
Only point I have here is that it is best to learn some vocabulary before starting Spanish school to make your time much more valuable here. Spanish school is a great place to learn grammar, sentence structure, and concepts - but probably not the best place to pick up your first few words if you are just starting.

I would definitely recommend this school. Living with a hostfamily makes it even better: you see the Guatemalan life and hear Spanish all the time. I could not speak a word of Spanish before I got there and now I can understand wayyyy more and I'm able to have (simple) conversations. Thank you San Pedro Spanish School!

Good Points
The teacher I had was excellent! Very organized, warm, supportive, and prompt. I would say the whole school was very organized...a relief after attending another school in Antigua which did not do well. I also volunteered with Niños del Lago, the school that is supported by the language school. We communicated regularly beforehand to plan my activities and again, very organized and supportive. I couldn't have asked for a more fulfilling and fun experience. Kudos and many thanks to Ramon and Carol and the teachers I worked with at both the language school and Niños del Lago,
Bad Points
I booked a tour with the tour group associated with the school to see the different lake communities. it was hurried and not very informative.

Be aware that travel by shuttle from Guatemala City to San Pedro might not be direct. I had to go to Antigua, wait a few hours, and take another shuttle to San Pedro. I arrived much later ( in the evening) than when I had expected to arrive (in the afternoon).

Good Points
The program at San Pedro Spanish Language school is excellent. The environment/ambiance of the school is very comfortable/relaxing. I sat at a thatch covered table overlooking the lake for my 4 hour morning classes. I had individual study with an excellent teacher, Terecita, who customized the lesson plan for me. Since I already had some knowledge of Spanish before I arrived, our classes were primarily conversation and vocabulary building with some focus on grammar (primarily past tense). Terecita was able to answer all of my questions and she brought some additional teaching materials to emphasize specific grammar topics.

I also enjoyed the afternoon Conversation Club meetings ( group discussion facilitated by an instructor) and the evening programs which included films, local speakers, football game, and salsa lessons. I studied at San Pedro for 2 weeks. I could easily have stayed another week or two. I improved from sort of knowing some Spanish to being able to have a conversation with someone who doesn't speak English.

The home stay with Lety and Luis Mendez was wonderful. The accommodation and the warmth of their hospitality were excellent. I learned about new foods and I was pleased when they corrected my Spanish - a continuation of my learning experience at the school.

San Pedro is a lovely town in which to spend time in Guatemala. I also enjoyed visiting other nearby towns on Lake Atitlan.
