The Spanish Immersion Course

at Pop Wuj consists of intensive one-to-one Spanish language immersion for five hours daily. Spanish Lessons are held either in the morning or the afternoon. Students at all skill levels are welcomed, as the teachers are trained language instructors who are able to accommodate  
all student types and needs. Students will have the opportunity to learn Spanish by focusing on grammar, speaking and comprehension, or vocabulary (both general and specialized) as they see fit, while simultaneously engaging in a cultural dialogue with a caring teacher who, after a few days of extensive contact, will surely also become a friend!

The teachers at Pop Wuj - Spanish School Guatemala come from a variety of professional and cultural backgrounds, and have a wide range of ages and interests. They are all open to discuss any cultural or political interests the student may have, and thus the Pop Wuj Spanish Immersion Course is a very open and engaging environment for both student and teacher alike. In addition, the classroom setting in the Spanish Immersion Course is flexible; students may feel more comfortable working in a café or a park, or they may choose to practice conversational skills with their teachers while taking a field trip to any of the numerous sites of interest around Xela. If a student wishes to participate in any of the schools volunteer based projects , they will likely be accompanied by their teacher, so that the language practice can continue while you help around the community.

Since the Spanish classes occupy only a half day, students will find themselves with sufficient time left over to enjoy the many cafés, sites, and activities Xela has to offer. Or, the student may wish to participate regularly in one or several of Pop Wuj’s volunteer projects to help the communities while practicing and speaking Spanish.
