  • Summary

    Celas Maya is a dynamic school and is considered one of the best in Central America by the Spanish Instituto Cervantes. This popular school offers customized Spanish language immersion courses at every level of proficiency. Classes take place in a nice colonial courtyard where teachers and students can work in a relaxed yet focused atmosphere. On the first day of studies, teachers spend quiet some time assessing the Spanish and asking what students need, and then elaborating a weekly program. Some staff members live at the school, and often there develops a close-knit community of teachers and students. Director Federico Velásquez is probably the most visionary person to run a Spanish School in Guatemala. Proof of this are all the services he offers to students: - The school has a Lake Atitlán branch in San Pedro La Laguna! - The school has WiFi on its grounds. There is an internet cafe. (Five hours of free internet access each week are included in tuition). - a travel agency - professional online classes. - Celas Maya is accredited by the Ministry of Education (MINEDUC) of Guatemala - it is one of only two schools in Guatemala that are accredited by the Instituto Cervantes (in Spain). This allows the school to teach and administer the standardized DELE exams. (Preparation courses cost US$247 per week for 25 hours). - Celas Maya is the only school in Guatemala with the accreditation to administer SIELE exams. - The school has associations with a number of US universities that send groups to spend a semester at the school! For professionals seeking a standardized and internationally acknowledged degree, this is the best tuition they can find in Quetzaltenango. The school is located in Quetzaltenango (also called Xela), a busy town with a nice colonial center. Xela is a good place for Spanish immersion study because of the favorable relation of locals to strangers. Also, it boasts local Maya culture, adventurous volcano trips, and multiple volunteer opportunities. Founded in 1999 by Federico Velásquez and Leslye Rivera Juárez, both previously teachers.
