    I've forgotten the one I attended. I did a Net search and came up with many choices.
    Use a 'g' for Antigua.

    The best one I did was in San Cris, in MX. The teachers were very serious about you learning.

    You should expect a lot of posts about this subject.
    You can also do a search on this site.
    Lots of info available...

    I'm located in Antigua , let me know if there is anything else besides Spanish Schools (I don't know anything about that, except that there are millions here in town) that you need to know or even if you just want to have a beer or a ride here in the area .

    I found the Pimsleur: Learn Spanish MP3s to be a good complement to learning the classroom. Try to stick those on your ipod.

    Good tip.
    If you are visual type of person, Rosetta Stone has great reviews.

    When you do the school, just make sure you make efforts to use what you've learned...right away.

    Are you still in town (Antigua)? If so, I can definitely recommend a few private teachers. I also have Rosetta if you want to get a copy.

    I personally did not like Rosetta Stone, but I probably didn't give it enough time. I even tried it well into knowing passable Spanish. I did not like having to sit in front of a computer while traveling. I also think it assumes you know grammar rules before you start. I would love to hear a first hand rave review about RS, but I can't give you one.
