I studied at Tecun Uman during June/July of 2012. I loved my time there and my home stay. Everyone was so friendly and I felt my instructor really cared for my individual spanish studies. I could not say more nice things about Coni and her hospitality at my home stay. The home stay was very close walk to the school! I would recommend everyone to join in the planned activities or suggestions from the school. They are very fun and you will be able to socialize with others who are studying as well. Everyone is there to help make your experience a good one!

My name is Lauren Ashcraft, and I attended classes at Tecun Uman for about four months for two hours each day. My husband and I moved here to Guatemala, and I wanted to make sure I had a good understanding of the language. My teacher, Matilde, helped me tremendously, not only with the language, but with the culture as well. She was well versed on all the material and had answers for all of my questions. The one to one teacher to student ratio enabled me to learn at my own pace, and my teacher and the school were very lenient and understanding when I needed to reschedule a class. During my time there, everyone I encountered was extremely polite and helpful, and I developed a deep friendship with my teacher. I feel completely satisfied with the material that was presented, the manner in which it was taught, the staff, and the price of their services. I am very happy with the progress I've made, and I recommend this school to everyone!

I studied 3 weeks at Tecun Uman. My teacher was great, constantly indulging me and allowing me to learn the things I wanted to. The location is also fantastic, just minutes from the main square. I would be remiss if I didn't mention my host family, who added immencely to my experience here. A must is to participate in the week-end excursions, they are unforgettable memories.

Aller à Ticun Uman , c'est aller à la rencontre d'un directeur dévoué et de ses professeurs qui possèdent beaucoup de connaissances et une grande expérience pour l'enseignement español . L'accueil est chaleureux , la première fois que je suis allée à Tecun Uman j'ai été agréablement surprise d' être dans un décor face à un volcan entourée de plantes et de fleurs .

La famille d'accueil où je vais est devenue une deuxième famille avec une hôtesse super dévouée. Marcher dans cette ville coloniale c'est aller à la rencontre de personnes aimables , la vie est calme comme si le temps s'était arrêté , derrière beaucoup de portes vous pouvez découvrir de magnifiques jardins Le parc central est un lieu pour faire de belles rencontres avec le peuple . Mon plus grand désir pour le futur est d'y retourner toujours et toujours car j'adore tout à Antigua .

It is an amazing place to learn Spanish.” I remember the first day I arrived Guatemala, I can only speak "hola" and "te amour". After 3 months of learning, my Spanish has gotten better and better, I can engage and understand easy conversation with others and fuse to the local culture. My instructor Lilian, she’s the best teacher ever. Lilian is not only my spiritual mentor but also my Mama in Guatemala. She treats me like her son and we share our life experience with each other. I have learned from her not only Spanish but also the truth of life. I had a great time with her and made some really good friends in Antigua. I love Guate!!!

這裡是全瓜地馬拉,最棒的學習西語環境!!!

"Everything about my experience at Tecun Uman was amazing! From the moment they picked me up from the airport I felt safe, incredibly welcomed and literally fell in love with the country immediately!

My teacher was the best. Juan Luis perfectly challenged me during my classes so I was never bored or intimidated. It takes a lot of knowledge and experience to teach in this way. I was blown away with the amount I learned in a month's time. Plus, we had so much fun!

The weekend trips were so professional and a great way to continue improving my Spanish while learning about the culture. Guatemala is absolutely gorgeous!

I can't say enough about my homestay with Salva and Mary. They made me feel like family the second I walked in the door. I slept and ate so well, and knew I was being looked after!

I was a little worried about going to Guatemala on my own, only to learn that it's one of the warmest places I've ever been. Much of my love for the culture is due the experiences I had from going through Tecun Uman for classes, a homestay, travel and volunteering. If you are hesitant about traveling alone, don't worry a second longer, TU will take care of everything and you'll have an experience you'll never forget!"

"I have been studying Spanish off and on at Tecun Uman over the past ten years. I am very impressed with the high quality of the teachers and the courteous service that is provided by the director. The teaching staff at Tecun Uman is dedicated, experienced and understanding of the students' needs.

I have had pleasant experiences with the home stay families recommended by Tecun Uman. The family members and their staff have bee welcoming, helpful and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending Tecun Uman Spanish School to any student at any level."

Durant quatre semaines, du 7 janvier au 1er février 2013, j'ai suivi un cours d'espagnol à l'école Tecun Uman. L'expérience a été complètement satisfaisante.

Du point de vue de l'instruction espagnole, j'ai été surpris du haut calibre de mon professseur. De plus son habileté à interagir avec moi m'a permis d'apprendre tout en ayant du plaisir.

J'ai bien apprécié les activités d'après-midi, organisées par l'école.

Finalement, j'ai aussi aimé l'opportunité de vivre avec une famille locale, durant toute cette période. Merci pour une expérience extraordinaire.

‘Tecun Uman is overall a wonderful experience. I judge a school on really good experienced Spanish instructors, a safe, comfortable environment, activities for cultural enhancement, and a caring Director. Tecun Uman has all these qualities.

I recommend Tecun Uman for students who are serious about learning Spanish and want immersion in the Spanish language and the Guatemalan culture.’

L’an dernier j’ai eu la chance d’étudier quelques semaines à l’école Tecun Uman. La direction et le personnel de l’école se sont avérés chaleureux et disponibles.

Edgar, mon professeur, est un excellent pédagogue d’expérience. C’est un homme qui sait structurer et expliquer les apprentissages de base de la langue espagnole. Aussi, j’ai apprécié sa disponibilité pour répondre à mes interrogations concernant l’histoire, les coutumes et la culture du peuple guatémaltèque. Je vous recommande Tecun Uman.

Vous y vivrez une expérience linguistique et culturelle plus qu’enrichissante. La pension d’Annette de Pérez est excellente tant au niveau de la qualité de la nourriture, de la propreté que de l’hospitalité. De plus, Antigua est une charmante petite ville où il fait bon séjourner.

After checking out a few other schools online, I chose Tecun Uman because Mario Castellanos, the school director, had helped my friend and his family arrange a family stay in Antigua during their summer vacation in 2014. Mario is a great guy. He takes a lot of care with the language program and keeps the focus on you, the student-learner.

As an advanced student, I studied briefly at the school. But I can't say enough about how helpful my teacher, Cathy, was in building on my knowledge and skill base. Her guidance prepared me well for my extended stay in Guatemala.

The family I stayed with was very close to the school, just an easy ten minute walk every morning. They are very experienced with hosting students, so I was well cared for. They also gave me plenty of opportunity during meals to add to my language practice. There's a real community atmosphere around the school, and Tecun Uman is an all-around, excellent value.
