I will be studying Spanish through an immersion course for the entire month of July. Maximo seems pretty good, and all communication via email has been professional and thorough. Prices are not too bad. Then I came across Antiguena Academy after doing some more research. The prices are better, and ALL hours are one on one. To boot, it has pretty good reviews as well.
I assume one school is better in particular areas compared to the other, and one is not objectively superior to the other. I just need help deciding which one to go with. Below are my objectives if it helps decide which one I should go with:
1. Above all, learn how to speak Spanish. I've taken four years of Spanish and will probably continue to do so in college. Grammar is not of priority, actual communication skills is what I'm after.
2. Good immersion experience - good host family that is helpful, friendly, etc. Soaking up Spanish in and out of the classroom.
3. Time for tours. While my focus and majority of time will be spent learning Spanish, I would still like to go on hikes, maybe a multi day tour done after school on the friday and done during the weekend.
4. Support - Help arriving the airport, transportation to school, amenities, bilingual/english support, etc.
With that all being said, which school should I go with? Should I go with a third Spanish school? Any and all feedback is appreciated.
