"CENAC provided a top notch language learning experience in a beautiful part of the world!"

Aaron Stites

My experience with CENAC was top notch. As a volunteer and then eventual staff member with my former organization located in Esteli, Nicaragua, CENAC played a vital role in my experience and the experience of our volunteers. CENAC Spanish teachers were always prepared, courteous, and tailored their instruction to what students needed and wanted out of the time spent learning a second language. Further, teachers were very knowledgeable about not only the local culture but about Latin America and the world in general. I always felt comfortable with my teachers and they pushed me to get better with each lesson.

Another incredible aspect of CENAC were the home stays and cultural experiences offered outside of language instruction. Maria placed our volunteers with wonderful host families who provided an insight into Nicaraguan culture and food. Further, the home stays were very comfortable and always safe. CENAC also provided trips to cultural sites as well as opportunities to visit the amazing outdoors of Nicaragua.
Last, Maria and I have maintained contact and she continues to help me as I use my Spanish back in the United States. I not only consider her a mentor but a friend as well. CENAC has and will always have my highest recommendation!
