If you want to learn Spanish while visiting Lake Atitlan, you should definitely go to the language school: Jabel Tinamit. Jabel Tinamit was a great place for me and my husband to learn Spanish. When we arrived, my husband had never studied Spanish before and what I remembered was from high school. My husband and I were interested in taking lessons together and the instuctors at Jabel Tinamit accommodated our varied needs. Even though we were at different starting points, we each walked away with new knowledge after every lesson. We attended classes almost daily for six months, learning grammar and vocabulary through fun and engaging conversation. There was a lot of talking time!!! We completed and reviewed homework each day. My husband and I can now speak Spanish with confidence. I will miss the Jabel Tinamit community: their smiles and friendly greetings each day as we enter, the blackboard of weekly events and the free coffee and water! We will continue our Spanish lessons even after we return to the United States through the on-line lessons that Jabel Tinamit offers. Thank you for everything!
