About Academia Colonial Spanish School

Academia Colonial is a first class Spanish school in Antigua Guatemala. Our school is located only four blocks from Antigua’s central park in a safe neighborhood. Our study environment is very fun, comfortable, and conducive for learning Spanish. We have comfortable tables and chairs, plenty of fresh air, a view of the mountains and Volcán de agua, delicious snacks, and free coffee, water and tea. You will find our Spanish teachers extremely knowledgeable. Many of them have more than 10 years of experience and all of them are certified Spanish instructors. A custom learning plan is tailored to fit each student’s educational learning goals and expectations.

Before I opened Academia Colonial, I came to Antigua Guatemala to learn Spanish and was disappointed. When I studied here the schools suffered from a gross lack of organization and process and no clear study plan. The amenities were non-existent, and the services they did provide were inadequate and poorly executed. Eventually the powdered coffee with no milk or creamer, the sugar filled with ants, the dirty drinking glasses, the absence of soap or towels in the bathroom, the stale bread as snacks, and the fact that there were more mosquitoes than I could kill drove me crazy. I was amazed that the schools were in business. Surely Antigua Guatemala, the famous Spanish learning destination, deserved a better Spanish school.

After my experiences as a student, I decided to stay in Guatemala and open Academia Colonial to provide Spanish students with a school that not only met but exceeded western standards and expectations. We understand that you have or will pay for a plane ticket, living arrangements, Spanish classes, and recreational activities. In addition, you will spend many hours with an instructor at the Spanish school of your choice. Since you are putting forth the time and bearing the expense, we try to provide a learning experience that is not only effective, fun, and comfortable, but also a great value for students of all ages.

Antigua was then ordered abandoned and the capital moved to present day Guatemala City, which was deemed safer from earthquakes. Antigua, however, was never completely abandoned.
