Cambio Language School

Many language students travel to Guatemala to learn Spanish because it is nearby to North America, it is cheap and the accent is easy to understand. Because of this Guatemala has many language schools. But, no other school boasts the Cervantes curriculum and no other language school is a social enterprise that benefits Niños de Guatemala.

When you study at Cambio you will learn effectively and efficiently and you’ll know that your tuition benefits the local community!

Learn Spanish from professional teachers using world class curriculum in a beautiful setting.

Leave the classroom for the school of life and take your lessons into the community.

Language lessons, conversation practice, even games will take you only so far. That’s why Cambio teachers take you to task on the streets. For each week you study there you can choose from a menu of unique experiences, lead by your teacher, where you can test your skills in real life settings.

You could:

  • Visit a chicken bus chop shop
  • Go shopping in Antigua market
  • Learn to carve and paint wooden souvenirs
  • Learn kite making
  • Create your own worry dolls
  • Learn ceramics and paint your own piece
  • Tour a nano coffee and chocolate finca

There are too many options to list here. There are enough activities to fill a months long stay without repeating!

Cambio Language School benefits the Niños de Guatemala charter school system.

When you work at learning Spanish at Cambio Language School you’ll take a couple half day trips to one of the three Niños de Guatemala campuses nearby. Two primary and one secondary campus serves over 500 children who would not complete their educations otherwise. The not-for-profit charter school system employs dozens of dedicated teachers and administrators and professional counselors and social workers see to the social and emotional needs of students and their families.

As a student spend a couple mornings volunteering at one of these schools and grow your Spanish and your heart by sharing meals, lessons, stories and games with the children there.
