La Unión Spanish School was created in 1996 by a few experienced Spanish teachers who taught Spanish to Peace Corps Volunteers. They decided to open a Spanish School to share the Spanish language and Guatemalan culture with tourists. “MI CASA ES TU CASA” is the vision that La Union has had now for 18 years.
Juan Carlos Martínez, the founder and director of the school, is also the President of the Chamber of Tourism of La Antigua Guatemala.
La Unión is a Spanish school located in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala. It has accumulated many years of experience in teaching Spanish to students from all over the world. The one-on-one classes with certified teachers benefit students whose specific needs and goals are always taken into account. In Centro Lingüístico La Unión, flexibility is our strength.
We can accommodate the beginning student who has no experience speaking Spanish, as well as the more advanced speaker who seeks cultural immersion and mastery of the Spanish language. Not only do students learn advanced grammar but they also develop conversational skills that enable them to speak fluently within a short period of time.
Yet, La Unión is more than just a school. Throughout the years, it has built a strong expertise in implementing encompassing programs including language classes, volunteer work, cultural activities, trips, and lodging in Guatemalan families. Whether you are an individual, a group, a university, or an organization, La Unión can plan for you the best experience abroad. Keep on reading to learn more.
