Our course takes place in the city of La Antigua, a thriving former capital popular with both tourist and locals alike. La Antigua is famous for its well preserved Spanish colonial buildings and fascinating ruins and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is situated 1,500 metres (5,000 feet) above sea level in the central highlands of Guatemala. This location makes La Antigua the perfect place for exploring the wider area, with the Pacific coast, Tikal and Lake Atitlan just a few hours away. During your course you will receive high quality instruction from our experienced teacher trainers following rigorous academic standards. On graduation you will receive an internationally recognised tefl certificate and our lifetime employment assistance.
La Antigua has an abundance of restaurants as well as small shops and boutiques selling a wide range of products including souvenirs, ceramics, antiques, textiles and much more. In the city centre and surrounding villages you will find a number of handicraft markets as well as open-air markets selling locally produced items. Other activities include zip lining, weekend treks of active volcanoes, or visits to local coffee plantations.
