Hello and Bienvenidos.
We operate Spanish-language study abroad programs for students and travelers in all parts of El Salvador, with our headquarters in Santa Ana. We offer 1:1 Spanish language immersion classes in Santa Ana, San Salvador, San Miguel, and in El Sunzal and Puerto La Libertad, and other coastal surfing destinations.
We offer Spanish language instruction at all levels, and our basic lesson plan consists of twenty hours of study a week, four hours day. You can begin on any Monday, and will be given a placement exam upon your arrival to determine your level of instruction. Our class size is limited to 8 students, and one-on-one instruction is available.
College credit is generally available through your home institution. We issue grade transcripts and written evaluations and have had students from UC Davis, SUNY Stonybrook, and other universities.
We are a unique program in that we offer students the option
of studying in La Libertad, with the Escuela Sihuatehuacan, in the coffee country of Santa Ana, or through the Escuela Cuzcatlan in the capitol, San Salvador. You can study at one, two, or all three locations which allows you to really get to know the country. You can study a day, a week, or enroll in our full academic semester or summer programs.
Our program is designed around a full-immersion pedagogy which includes intensive Spanish instruction and the chance to put what you learn into practice through a homestay with a Salvadoran family. Students also have the option of a hotel.
We also offer three excursions per week to Mayan ruins, waterfalls, a highland coffee village, volcanoes, and museums. Flexible scheduling options are available, and discounts are available for groups.
Our instructors are experienced language teachers with degrees
from the national universities, and our Director, Nelson Evelio Pacheco Martínez, is bilingual and has fifteen years of teaching experience. He can also help to facilitate your visit, helping with tasks which are
difficult for foreigners, such as renting a house or car, making
travel arrangements, or just getting your food the way you like it.
Please contact us if you would like more information or to enroll.
