Activities & Excursions
Learning Spanish doesn't finish with your daily classes. There are many options for after class activities, excursions, and volunteer work. These can all teach you more about the culture and allow you to practice your Spanish.
Trying on indigenous clothing at
Santiago de Atitlan.
Many students choose to do volunteer work. This provides a “win - win” situation… an organization gets your valuable assistance, while you get to practice your Spanish, learn more about Guatemalan culture, and perhaps learn a new skill.
Even if your Spanish is not yet developed to the stage of you feeling comfortable 'putting it to work', there are some organizations that operate in English and these too would be glad of some assistance.
The scope of options for volunteer work is wide and varied.
