At El Nahual, we take pride in the fact that all the revenue generated from the Spanish School is used to fund our Manos de Colores educational programmes for the Pacajá community. Additionally, students in our Spanish language school contribute directly to our social projects by supporting these worthwhile programmes through their class fees and by volunteering outside class time. These opportunities allow our student-volunteers to practice their Spanish in real-world situations where they can observe their hard work impacting low-income communities in a positive way. General and specialized Spanish courses are offered for all levels of speakers, from absolute beginner to extremely advanced. Student-volunteers and individuals participating in our volunteer-only programme also have the option of living with a friendly local family in our ¨homestay¨program. This service provides students/volunteers with a private room and three meals per day at the comfortable home of a family living near El Nahual.
