Welcome to “La Bacadilla ”Language School
The first of its kind in Belize, the new Central American nation in the heart of the Caribbean Basin! “La Bacadilla” Language School started operating in the summer of 2013 specializing in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language. It is our hope to engage in the instruction of English in the near future.
The school operates from #43 Churchill Street in Benque Viejo del Carmen Town, the most Hispanic community in Belize, along the adjacency zone with Petén, in Guatemala. The program is delivered by competent teachers trained in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language. The program, geared at enabling the learner to interact in the language in a comprehensible manner, is in the process of seeking accreditation through the “Instituto Cervantes” in Spain. It immerses persons in an environment conducive to learning Spanish. This entails staying at the guest house in town or with host families, and engaging in activities that enables them to communicate comprehensively in the language.
Welcome on board to what will be a thrill and an adventure in learning one of the most popular languages of our time!
