Why San Marcos School?
Experience Is Important
Since 1997, San Marcos Spanish School has been a leader in teaching Spanish as a foreign language organization. Today we are proud that most students come from recommendations of past students of our school.
Our campus is located in a completely new and tranquil piece of land, close to, but descretely away from the main lanes of San Marcos, a popular village with striking views of the volcanoes, many excellent restaurants plus a variety of health and spiritual practitioners.
You can also combine your stay in either of our two other places, with the same quality of education in San Pedro and in Quetzaltenango as there is in San Marcos. We offer a Combined Course.
Courses start every Monday, with the flexibility to also start on other days of the week, once we've made the reservation. Our program is available throughout the year.
Personalized / Customized Courses
In class there is one teacher for every student to design courses specifically for you. The first day you’ll take a ‘level-test’ exam level to be able to start the course that best suits your needs and abilities. The whole time you're with us, your progress will be closely monitored by teachers. Before leaving San Marcos Spanish School, you’ll be awarded a Certificate of Attendance and Grade Sheet with the results of your language and communication skills.
We’re proud of the quality and professionalism of the whole team of people from San Marcos Spanish School. We are aware that our teachers are what make the school what it is: a professional, innovative and dynamic learning-centre. To achieve this, teachers use real-life situations, following an interactive methodology that will make you feel an important part of the class.
‘DELE’ Exam Preparation
San Marcos Spanish School has a team of examiners for the DELE Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language: official qualifications accrediting levels of proficiency in the Spanish language. The positive results obtained by our students in these exams, ensure the quality of the courses.
We also have contact with centres which examine in the name of the Cervantes Institute in Guatemala and perform reviews to obtain their official title.
As a student of San Marcos Spanish School you will have the opportunity to participate in our volunteer program with the Niños del Lago project, situated close to our twin-school in San Pedro, supporting children and youth of our community in the areas of education, health and nutrition. You can also participate in other community projects such as agriculture, construction etc. It can be an important part of your experience in Guatemala, and to have chance to make a positive impact in the community.
Activities and Excursions
You’ll find that participating in the activities and optional excursions are an ideal complement to the Spanish language courses. Organised by the Coordinator of Activities, you can practice what you learn in class.
From Monday to Friday you can participate in:
Transfer To and From the Airport or Other Locations in Guatemala
San Pedro Tours can also arrange travel and transport within Guatemala, (including coming to San Pedro or return to the airport). We have shuttles and private taxis at your service. Please check prices, destinations and itineraries directly with Rudy.
