Homestay-Total Immersion Program

Family Homestay

One of our keys of success, is an integral part of the total immersion experience, where the students can have a unique view of living in a middle class home, native from Antigua, where also they will have the experience share the Guatemalan culture, traditions, celebrations, meals and much more.

Family Environment

The treatment is personalized, students will have direct relationship with the family, share meals, in some cases can share other family activities, and all depends on the attitude of the students. The opportunity to talk in each meal is available all the time.  Family location is excellent, most of the houses are two to four blocks from the school, this means a walk of 10-15 minutes.

The food is healthy, fresh ingredients and well purified, food portions are very good, to be satisfied. The food menus are varied, and can be designed for students who have problems such as lactose intolerance, gluten, also vegetarian students with all its exceptions, families are experienced in all types of food.  Please note that it is very important that the student informs the family and the school address, if there is a special situation, to be in total control.

The Families

Learning Spanish is easiest and funny if you have options to practice, therefore the total immersion that the homestay provide give the opportunity to speak, listen and learn all the time, for that reason since 1983, we have refined our options to only the best available. Based on student reviews, we only offer the friendliest families, the best locations, and the best overall experience. For considerations for our students comfort and budgets, we have carefully chosen and developed relationships with homestay families in Antigua.

Guatemalan culture

Guatemalan culture and Guatemalan customs are strongly influenced by the history of Guatemala. Guatemalan people are largely mestizo, a mixture of Spanish and Maya blood, while many villagers are direct Maya descendents. Guatemalan cuisine, for example, varies depending on the region. However, many traditional Guatemalan foods are based on Maya cuisine, predominantly featuring ingredients like corn, chilies and beans. Their principal crop of the Maya was corn maize which continues to be very important today.
