Muchas gracias por el buen tiempo en Kie Balam. Yo aprendí mucho español en poco tiempo, porque las clases con mi maestra Mariela Robles estuvieron amenas e interesantes! Nunca estuve aburrido. En el tiempo libre hicimos muchas buenas actividades. Yo estoy triste para salir de esta escuela porque ahorita yo estoy muy cerca con todas las buenas personas de la escuela y con mi familia del hospeda

In 2015 I had a unique and unforgettable experience in Guatemala , especially in the city of Quetzaltenango , where I had the pleasure and the opportunity to learn Spanish in Kie Balam . The time when I lived in school will never be forgotten . Learn Spanish in Guatemala in the best school was easy and fun and definitely I will return to repeat the experience. In addition to Spanish, Kie Balam and its wonderful, funnies and "guapas" teachers provided me an immersion in the culture of the country , with some tours and activities in the city . Here in Brazil we have many schools as Kie Balam , which is unique in the world. Actually, my english is bad but my spanish is very good! Thanks for all Kie Balam!

My Spanish language experience prior to coming to Guatemala was largely self-taught from books and being immersed during travel. It enables a rough understanding of the language, but is prone to instilling bad habits. I searched for a school in the hopes of learning some structure yet still having the time in the day to explore and practice new skills on the unsuspecting population of Xela. There are plenty of choices of schools in Guatemala. I poked my nose into several facilities before deciding upon Kie Balam, and am extremely glad that I did. The quality of instruction, relaxed atmosphere, opportunity for external activities and location within the town of Xela combined to make a very worthwhile experience. I highly recommend Kie Balam and can honestly state that I'll return for brush-up lessons. Paul in Vancouver

My experience at kie balam was amazing. I will never forget the open and loving nature of everyone there, and how much I learned in just a couple months. I've kept these memories close to me, since they helped to to grow and know myself in more ways than one.

A few years ago I went to Guatemala for two months and studied Spanish at the Kie Balam. I can't recommend this school enough and would go back again without any hesitation. My host family and all the teachers at the school made me feel very welcome and introduced me to the Guatemalan way of life. Learning Spanish was real fun and I got the chance to use my Spanish after school while talking to the people in Xela (I didn't know a word of it before I got there). The teachers always make sure, you never get bored and I did a lot of different activities with them and the other students. Go there and try it yourself, you won't be disappointed :)

I studied Spanish at Kie Balam in Xela for 4 weeks in February 2015. My experience was great. Both of my teachers were excellent. From the moment I started classes at Kie Balam, I was part of the Kie Balam family which included the other students, the teachers, the administrator, the school care taker, 3 dogs and a cat. Kie Balam is a small school, especially in the winter, which added greatly to my experience. I highly recommend Kie Balam. William Fellows Sacramento, California

I had such an amazing time studying at Kia Balam! The ciriculum is catered to each student's goals and ability, so it is possible to learn extremely quickly if you are motivated! The classroom atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed which made it easy for me to ask even the silliest of questions without hesitation. I was placed with a wonderful host family that made me feel right at home from my very first day. I was provided with a lovely private room, 3 meals a day, and was even included in family gathering, and outings. Because of Kia Balam I was able to leave Guatemala with a much greater understanding of Spanish, and life-long friendships. I can't wait to go back!

I would highly recommend Kie Balam to anyone looking to learn Spanish but also to make really great connections and really learn what Guatemalan culture and life is like. I felt so cared for and left feeling the most confident I ever have with my Spanish. I had an awesome experience! If there's any doubt, pick Kie Balam- the staff is amazing!!

I studied at Kie Balam last summer and had a terrific time! The school is very small and the staff are so personable and attentive to what kind of experience you want to have. My teacher was Mariela and she was wonderful! Compared to other spanish schools I've studied at (one in Antigua) the teachers at Kie Balam go above and beyond what is expected. They took my dancing, out to eat, showed me around the city, took trips to neighboring towns and really made sure I had everything I needed. I left like I learned so much and really made unique and memorable relationships. I will always remember my time there and hope to come back soon!

Kie Balam is a very professional and effective school where the teachers and the owners become your friends. My first visit was fabulous, any anxieties I had were immediately delt with by the superb staff. The home stay worked beautifully, great introduction to local food. I walked everywhere. Kie Balam found me the perfect volunteer job at a local school teaching drawing and English to children. I love the climate, the people, the markets, the languages, the Maya culture. I went back with friends. So much to discover. I'm planning my third visit now!
