Mayan Language Program
MAYAN LANGUAGE PROGRAM
PLFM has created this program to have as its main focus the conservation and dissemination of Mayan languages. It’s multi-lingual, multi-ethnic, and pluri-cultural in nature.
Seeing the need from many organizations, volunteers working in communities and those who have a personal interest in learning the Mayan languages, our school has created specific programs to teach the different languages. We have specialized native speaking teachers of each of the Mayan languages.
Remember that if you want to study “Kaqchikel”, “K’iche'”, “Mam”, “Q’eqchi”, “Tzutujil” or any other Mayan language, please contact us in advance so that we can bring in the teacher from the community from which the teacher belongs
General Spanish Program
GENERAL SPANISH PROGRAM
Proyecto Lingüístico Francisco Marroquín offers a one-on-one total immersion program which is focused on conversation, comprehension, and writing. The manner of instruction is flexible depending on the demands of each student or university. The school uses teaching-learning methodologies, techniques, and various materials appropriate to the student.
While developing their skills and abilities, our students will be able to converse with native speakers of the Spanish language, which will help them in their personal development in any profession. The instruction is personalized to assist the student in all their needs. When the course begins each student has an informal oral diagnostic evaluation performed by the teacher, which will serve to place the student at the appropriate level. This also determines if the student learns in a visual or auditory manner.
At the end of each week the teacher prepares a written evaluation of the student that is used by the school to prepare a plan for subsequent weeks and to help in the development of the student’s learning. PLFM can develop a specific plan for each student or a syllabus for each university level, which will guarantee total immersion in the learning of the Spanish language while the student enjoys every aspect of the program.
