University Preperation

This is a program for students who want to go to the university and need a specific level. You can choose from these levels:

  • Beginning
  • Básico
  • Intermedio
  • Avanzado
  • Superior
  • Diploma of Translation 
  • Literature
  • Formulation
  • Pronunciation

I thoroughly enjoyed my four weeks of intense one-on-one instruction in Spanish at an advanced level at the Minerva Spanish School in Quetzaltenango. I left satisfied and was grateful for my teacher'swillingness to allow me to personalize and individualize my instruction. The purpose of my education at Minerva Spanish School was to fulfill certain specific goals, personal needs, individual objectives and priorities, namely preparation for the 6 BCLAD examinations in California.

Successful completion of these exams leads to a bilingual teacher certification in the State of California. My teacher was very willing to accommodate my individual needs; she provided me with careful instruction in Latin-American History, 20th Century and Contemporary Hispanic Literature, studies in Latin-American Culture and Society.

I returned to the United States December 9th and took my
exams for the BCLAD Bilingual Certification on the 11th in
San Francisco, CA. I believe I passed most of these exams, if not all of them, thanks to and because of my thorough preparation for them at Minerva Spanish School in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.
