Accomodating different learning
” Many readers, of course, know that history offers no such easy answers. Most scholars have roughly located “split off” point between American and British English as the mid-18th-Century. Eastern New England, New York City, and the Coastal South all seem to have maintained various degrees of contact with the “Old World,” and hence adopted some later British innovations.But as a whole, American English started going its own course around the time of the Revolutionary War. Everything I’ve read suggests their accent would not have been have been different, however.Staff are a lot of fun, but the first priority is to get you speaking Spanish well.
During the end of the year, March, April and the summer months it is recommended that you enroll at least one month in advance, in order to secure your space in the school.
There are 20 - 30 teachers with an average of 10 years of experience teaching the Spanish language to foreigners. Teachers receive all payments and benefits postulated by Guatemalan labor laws. School's specific Information: The teachers are supplied with work nearly always, and thus are very loyal to the school.
By enrolling in advance, you are likely to get a better teacher. If you are not happy with your assigned teacher, dont hesitate to ask the director for another teacher. You can visit Tikal, Livingstone, Rio Dulce, the Lake Atitln, Cobn and other areas, your teacher being your full day guide and teacher.
You have to pay for both you and your teachers travel costs, which does not result too expensive, since the teachers know good value places.
Mornings are organized in grammar teaching, vocabulary and homework. Lectures: Every month there is a conference by an interesting Guatemalan professional (policeman, lawyer, etc).
Although very structured, the school adapts to the need of students with great flexibility. Lectures are not given with translation; you have to be at the brink of attention.
In my opinion, these two countries went in very different linguistic directions because their went in different directions (both literally and figuratively).
England saw rapid industrialization in the 19th-Century, and with it a change in demographics from rural to urban. Wells notes one prominent difference: many people would have still had “raised” pronunciations of words like “kite” and “mouth” (similar to Irish accents today).
Teachers are very experienced (minimum 10 years) and very motivated.
Teachers are a lot of fun, but the first priority for them is to get you speaking Spanish well.
A high teaching standard is achieved: teachers have an average of 10 years of experience.
