If you would like to obtain college credits for your studies, please speak directly to your university’s Spanish department head or Study Abroad office about working with CX. You are welcome to download our syllabus for Spanish I, II, III and IV Spanish courses. Our Spanish immersion program with homestay is fully accredited by Guatemalan Ministry of Education. These college courses follow the ACTFL cultural and linguistic proficiency guidelines.
Our class format is one-on-one instruction. The Spanish teachers have been extensively trained to provide the students a more active role in their learning process (student centered instruction). As a result, our students are actively involved in their second language acquisition experience which enables them to learn quickly in class.
After your initial assessment, your teacher will write a lesson plan using the GANAG template providing all the linguistic objectives of the week including what you will be learning each day, evaluations, homework assignments and more. Here is a sample of our lesson plan that you can download.
We offer daily social and cultural activities including field trips and excursions during the weekends. You may download our calendar of activities for 2016.
