Guatemala Survival Spanish Program
To enhance the experience of overseas interns and volunteers abroad in Guatemala, the International Volunteer Travel in collaboration with our partner Guatemala Spanish language school, offers a special two week program for beginners, called the Guatemala Survival Spanish Program or the Spanish for Travelers program.
The Guatemala Survival Spanish program is designed for volunteers and interns who do not have enough time to learn the language in a comprehensive form, but who need the language for effective participation in our Guatemala volunteer and internship abroad programs.
Note: The Guatemala Survival Spanish Program is not offered alone; participants must take at least one week of internship, volunteer placement or the Adventure Holidays program. Those who to take survival Spanish without volunteering need to sign up under the Guatemala Spanish Study Abroad program.
The Guatemala Survival Spanish Program classes are taught in a way that provides interns abroad and overseas volunteers in Guatemala with a richer experience and understanding of the cultural and traditions of Guatemala, and also, enables them to develop their language skills for everyday travel situations. Learning covers useful Spanish language for conversation at restaurant, bank, tourist office, supermarket, post office, airport, etc.
Cultural Events for Spanish Students
To enhance the learning experience, this Guatemala Survival Spanish Program offers free time and weekend trips and cultural activities for students. Activities include soccer games, traditional dinners, potlucks, salsa classes, visits to hot springs, and hikes to volcanoes, on the weekends. Visits to indigenous villages, churches, markets, cultural conferences, films and discussions also incorporated.
