Centro Linguistico MAYA, an educational institution certified and approved by the Guatemalan Government, was founded in 1979. We began with three instructors. Today we have nearly 70 very qualified teachers. CLM was created to provide work for the people in our community. This kind of work represents a very important source of income in our country.

The school presently operates two, well-equipped buildings, which fulfills our students needs.

The central building of CLM is located in downtown Antigua, two and a half blocks away from the central park and one and one half blocks from the bus station.

Since we are located downtown, our students have access to places like the central market, the post office, a variety of restaurants, churches, hotels, local craft shops and cultural monuments.


Our program operates on a ONE-ON-ONE basis, every student has his own teacher. The individual instruction of CLM makes you feel confident that you are receiving the attention necessary to learn Spanish. Well-qualified teachers work with our students according to their needs, with special consideration given to personal interests. The program includes grammar, conversation and exercises.

Our teachers are very experienced in this field All of them have completed studies to teach Spanish. Generally, our teachers possess a minimum of five years teaching experience, and many are completing other professional studies at the University. Many of our teachers started with the school when it was first founded.

When the student arrives, we evaluate their level of Spanish. Based on this evaluation, the instructor plans an individualized teaching program. At the student's request, the teacher makes periodic evaluations to determine progress in the language. We provide our students with books and materials suitable for individual levels of instruction.

Should an occasion arise when a student feels that a teacher is not fulfilling their needs, they can request a change of teacher that we will immediately honor. The Director is in daily contact with each student, and on Thursdays the director spends time with each student to determine any special needs.

CLM also has excursions twice a week which feature different places in and around Antigua, such as museums, colonial houses, and ruins of special interest.

The most important idea of these excursions is to practice Spanish and to learn about the architecture, culture, religion and customs of Guatemala, and to get to know other students.

CLM can also arrange for weekend excursions with experienced travel agents, which is the best way to travel in Guatemala.
