Past Program Participant Feedback & Comments
Antigua, Guatemala

Richard T., US Dept. of Energy
I chose AmeriSpan because of the large number of possible locations and variety of study options

Stephen S., Retired
Rated overall program excellent

Lisa A., Professor
This is my second time using AmeriSpan to study abroad. My experience the last time was so positive! The best part of this program was the last week of volunteering when I was able to really utilize my teaching skills at the school.

Elizabeth T., Server
My teachers were the best part of the trip. They were smart, creative, dynamic, energetic and just genuinely good and caring people to be around. Also, the optional afternoon activities that my school offered were excellent, and it was just nice to have these organized activities as an option, already planned and ultimately incredibly informational when attended.

Danielle B., Attorney
A fantastic program which enabled me to learn more salsa steps in a week than I have in almost 10 years at home!

Tracy C.,
We had a great experience, learned some Guatemala Sign [Language], and were able to really give a hand to a great program which was short handed. We are staying in touch with the teacher and coordinator and hope to continue supporting their efforts.

Nancy C., Retired
The Antigua staff were superb. There are 85 language programs in Antigua. Amerispan did a good job helping me find a good one.

Bayle E.,
I appreciate that AmeriSpan organizes the language and homestay package. There were other students at the school who had just shown up in Antigua and were staying in hotels, hostels, etc. I could tell how much more I was getting out of my trip.

I just loved Antigua itself. It is such a do-able city for myself alone or with friends. I loved the color of people's clothes and the houses. I thought Amerispan did a good job in comments about the intricacies of living in a homestay and being sensitive to their life and customs.

I appreciated that for my first time in Guatemala everything was taken care of; being picked up from the airport, my accomidations, my first two trips. It made it more possible for me to relax and just enjoy the experience. The best part were th teachers and the people of Antigua and Guatemala. I can not think of a worst part at the moment.I had a great experience and have actually returned for another 3 weeks.

Dorothy M., Government Executive
"The experience was truly amazing. I only stayed a week and was suprised that other students were there for a month or more! Truly you need that long to ""immerse"" yourself in the language and I would love to do it again for a longer period of time. The best parts were the homestay, other students from around the world, and the instructors. No bad parts!"

Patricia C., Pharmacist

Jessica W., Teacher
I loved my homestay!!

Susan L., Hospice bereavement
The teaching staff was wonderful. I really liked the Activa program as it gave me several hours of conversation everyday one on one while seeing history, art, and other points of interest. My Activa teacher, Tony Hernandez, waws very informed and we had a number of excellent conversations that encompassed not only what we were seeing, but also a lot about the culture of Guatemala, the politics, education, the family structure, and more. I learned a lot of Spanish while I was in this porgram and came back able to speak much better than when I went. Also being immersed in another culture was such an eye opener and I came back and am still much changed from my experience in a very good way. Everyone I met at the school and in the community was very genuinely gracious and very forviving of my poor attempt to speak Spanish and for this I was grateful every day I was there. Because of this program I am now sponsoring a child in rural Guatemala and one in Honduras, so will have a very good reason to return in the next couple of yeras, to again study at a school and see my new children. I probably would never have considered becoming a sponsor if I had not been in Guatemala for the length of time that I was and as more than a tourist.Everyone that I talked to at the AmeriSpan office was very helpful and answered my questions in detail- and I called mroe than once with questions too!

Valerie L., Retired
Both the teaching and being in Antigua during Semana Santa were wonderful.

Carolyn T., Retired
I loved the school and my teachers and the wonderful approach they have to teaching. They were always pleasant and very helpful. They really listened to what I needed to work on and geared their program for my individual needs. They had a variety of materials and 'games' and ideas, all of which were helpful. I have recommended your program to people far and wide. I am hoping to do another program next year.

I feel that the AmeriSpan staff was wonderful and went out of their way to help us. The best part was the charm of the Guatemalan people and of Antigua itself.

Richard G., education
I will highly recommend this program to my students and the faculty at my community college. The one-on-one instruction was excellent since the instructor follows the student's pace and addresses the student's individual needs. The student and instructor soon develop a rapport that extends passed mere professionalism and develops into a true friendship.

I am back, delighted with my trip to Antigua. I spent an excellent 6 weeks stay and enjoyed every minute of it. The school is definitely first class. I was delighted with my host family and intend to return to Antigua at a later date.

Paula M., Music Teacher
I can't wait to go back to Antigua, and I can't wait to try other AmeriSpan programs. I think you guys provided a wonderful service at a great price, and I don't think I'd have done half as well in Latin America without you. I discovered the AmeriSpan difference when I began to ask other students about their teachers and to visit their homes. Consistently, the arrangements made through AmeriSpan were far better than what the schools had arranged for students.

Joseph S., Retired

Christine R., Minister
I had studied other languages in school. Years and years of French and German. But I never did more than read with a dictionary, and therefor never really learned. But a couple of weeks in Antigua, living and learning Spanish, turned an introductory course into real knowledge. I would recommend AmeriSpan without hesitation to anyone.

Bertram E. S., President of Company
I really enjoyed my two weeks in Antigua and wish to congratulate you on your choice of employees. I found them to be unfailingly cheerful, friendly and helpful. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and AmeriSpan was very important to me in making it so.

Joellen S., Student
I had the best 3 months of my life. I now receive letters from all over the world and have a different outlook on my life. There was absolutely nothing about the Latin culture I did not like. In fact, I want to move abroad and live in Central or South America.

Ingrid W., Homemaker
AmeriSpan is an excellent organization. We have recommended it to friends. We enjoyed the trip very much.

Aaron M., Student
I write this letter in thanks for the support that AmeriSpan provided me in Antigua, Guatemala, facilitating this incredible experience. The Spanish school in Antigua was excellent. Your representative in Antigua was extremely kind and helpful. He made the transition to Guatemalan life easy and fun. Thank you once again. My time in Central America has changed my life.
