Course Information

Learn the Spanish Language on the Shores of Lake Atitlan.

Atitlan is truly amongst the most beautiful and impressive lakes in the world. San Pedro La Laguna, a small town on its shores in the Guatemalan Highlands, is a popular destination for many travelers in Central America. This is an experience that cannot be replaced by any other.

At Orbita, our program provides a professional curriculum that is adjustable to your level of knowledge in an enjoyable yet challenging atmosphere. We excel in all of the four language learning aspects: writing, reading, speaking and comprehension.



What sets Orbita Spanish School apart from the rest of the language schools?

Orbita Spanish School has created its own program based on fourteen years of experience in teaching Spanish. We have tailored our program over the years based on student input and from the progress that we monitor from each one of them. Our 1st Edition was printed in 2007 and now, years later, we have completely updated it and have recently rolled out the 3rd Edition (2015).


The exercise book of this San Pedro Spanish School incorporates Psychology, Philosophy, advice and motivational exercises.

We don’t simply hand out photocopies of worksheets, rather we give our students complete books created for their own use. The exercise books are designed according to our students. They not only include exercises for comprehension and learning, but also topics on Mayan culture, philosophical phrases, advice about the enviroment etc.

We encourage our students to take a comprehension test after completing each level, so that they can see their progress, and so that we can continue to improve on any exposed weaknesses.

We provide mostly organic products for student snacks, we support our local community, and encourage volunteerism. We believe that our school provides the best value, and that you will be very happy with the teachers and the environment that we have created here.
