Casita Institute designs and facilitates meaningful opportunities for educators to improve their Spanish through instruction, immersion, and transformative experiences.

Traveling Teacher Program

The Traveling Teacher Program is designed for educators that want to improve their Spanish in order to better serve the students and families with whom they work. This is achieved through total language immersion, one-on-one language tutoring focusing on vocabulary specific to education, and the opportunity to practice Spanish in authentic educational settings.

Live with a Guatemalan family and share each home cooked meal together. Authentic practice!



After class, volunteer in an educational setting and/or explore the city and its surrounding areas!
