STUDY - Nebaj Language School (NLS)

The Nebaj Language School, the first and only language school in Nebaj, was created to provide quality language instruction and to increase economic opportunities for local teachers and homestay familiesThe Nebaj Language School wishes to create the best learning experience possible, therefore teachers remain flexible to the student’s needs and desires.  Furthermore, time is dedicated to discussing the distinct culture and customs of Nebaj and the Ixil region thereby taking advantage of the unique learning environment.

While studying Spanish at Nebaj Language School, students will encounter a number of distinct advantages:

* Classes are offered in small group settings as well as in one-on-one, personalized instruction for those in pursuit of intensive tutoring and studying.

Teaching Style
We understand that everyone has a different learning style, so our teachers use a variety of techniques to make learning easy and fun. We know that not everyone wants to sit in a classroom, therefore we aim to provide plenty of opportunities to reinforce vocabulary and grammar through games and through activities in and around Nebaj.

Our goal is to make our lessons as well-rounded as possible, providing exercises that will incorporate writing, reading, and pronunciation so as to offer a custom tailored learning experience. Furthermore, as a result of our unique location, lessons will also focus on learning about the rich customs, culture and politics of the Ixil region.
