I came to Antigua with essentially no spanish skills, and each day my confidence grew. I am leaving with more to learn but a strong foundation to work from. The teachers were patient and understood the diverse learning needs of the students. They are friendly and use real world concepts to help apply language skills. Every interaction with the staff was supportive and helpful. I stayed with a host family and the experience was both humbling and so rewarding. I am sad to leave, and plan to return to in the future without a doubt that I will use Maximo Nivel again!
