What Students are saying...
“Travel Abroad Immersion-Our three teenagers stayed with Rosalinda and her family during a service and language study trip to Guatemala. Rosalinda and her family were welcoming and gave our children the opportunity to experience life in a traditional Guatemalan household. The home that Rosalinda shares with her family is very tranquil, safe, and well run. Our teenagers were well fed and felt right at home from the beginning of their stay. This is a unique experience for anyone who would like to see how differently and not so differently people from other cultures live.” —Lisa - WA
“I had been studying with Speak Spanish Live for over a year when I took the incredible opportunity to travel to Antigua, Guatemala to live and study with my instructor and her family. Rosalinda and her family instantly welcomed and treated me as part of their family. My accommodations were great, and I had the opportunity to be totally immersed in the language and vibrant culture of Guatemala. Guatemala is a fascinating country with a rich history, amazing sights and their hospitality is second to none. Rosalinda’s lessons were fun and creative, while at the same time, I learned so much. Speak Spanish Live also arranged for me to volunteer with the local organization, Common Hope. My volunteer experience was amazing and I made lots of new friends and I had the opportunity to interact with the local people. My two weeks in Guatemala flew by and by the end of my trip my Spanish had dramatically improved. Upon returning home I have been able to maintain my abilities and continue to further my studies with Speak Spanish Live. I am already planning my return trip for next year! Thank you Speak Spanish Live for creating and coordinating such a memorable trip. I would encourage anyone no matter what skill level, to take the opportunity to study with Speak Spanish Live and participate in their immersion program.” —Courtney - Enumclaw, WA
