Established in 1998 and run by Gregorio and his wife Candelaria, Spanish School Jabel Tinamit is built on the couple’s dream of becoming teachers. Our school’s name, "Jabel Tinamit", is a Kaqchikel (Mayan dialect) term that translates to “beautiful town” in English. We are the sole language school in Panajachel owned and operated by Mayans. Jabel Tinamit is authorized and registered by the Ministry of Education and the Tourist Commission of Guatemala.
Our programs are One-to-One Classes, Friends Learning Together, Homestay, and Online Spanish Lessons. These are conducted in a school with an internet café, library, and other facilities. We also have a booth for online lessons and a room for cooking lessons. Our language school recognizes the importance of experienced teachers and reliable host families to provide students the best possible learning experience in Guatemala.
