Ixquic Spanish School is a project in the city of Antigua Guatemala dedicated to providing the highest quality education to its students. The name Ixquic is taken from the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Quiche Mayas. Ixquic was the daughter of one of the lords of Xibalba, Kuchumakik, who was part of Maya history.

Most of our teachers helped to develop the good reputation of the famous Spanish Schools in Antigua Guatemala, unfortunately when all the female teachers became older or began to fight for their rights at those schools they were dismissed. At that point, these teachers decided to start a new project with a united vision: Women helping women through education. That is one of our main objectives and a big part of mission.

The teachers of our Spanish School became teachers for random reasons in their lives, such as becoming widows, or they were single mothers, real women who had to maintain their homes and their families.  The good thing is that they realized a career teaching, and they loved to teach and continued their education at universities in order to provide the best quality in education.

My name is Marybel Mijangos, I have been born, raised and actually living in "La Ciudad de Antigua Guatemala". I got my university degree in Business Management on 2007 from the Universidad Galileo. At this moment I’m working as Manager at Spanish School Ixquic, which is a personal-familiar project that whe started working with my mom on 2010. Actually it is the first time that we have to opportunity to work with my mom and we realized that an Spanish School was a good idead, I'm very proud of my town, which a lot of people hate that I call town. But if we compare with (I just know two big cities in the States) we are a town. Which for me is better, because our people for being towners tend to be more humble, happy and simple, that makes them to life always smiling. I'm looking forward to meet people that want or need to learn Spanish. La Antigua Guatemala is one of the famous places to learn spanish with the method One-to-One, and the Spanish you learn here is well recognise in all Spanish countries because we do not have accents. I'm very proud of my town, which a lot of people hate that I call town. But if we compare with (I just know two big cities in the States) we are a town. Which for me is better, because our people for being towners tend to be more humble, happy and simple, that makes them to life always smiling. Come and meet La Antigua Guatemala #lag, you will not regret about it. You will noticed it is a favourite destination for vacation, because you can't find a place without a tourist. I'm not saying it is bad, I'm just talking about the fact that there is a great reason why tourist are all around.
