Et ophold på Escuela de Montaña giver dig mulighed for at få førstehåndskendskab til levevilkårene for Guatemalas fattige landbefolkning, samtidig med at du lærer spansk. Eleverne sover på skolen, men alle måltider indtages hos familier fra landsbyen for foden af bakken.
"I will take home with me the evening discussions and joking with my family, children playing and hugging me, a deep respect for my instructor Alejandro and his expertise and patience, memories of singing and laughter and deep discussions, and a sense of renewal and re-invigoration."
"Yes man, what a week. A lot of study and work - but it was a pleasure. Hope you remember to put in the rest of the nails in the roof, fix the old nail holes and repair the walls around the roof lumber. Thank you for your good friendship."

"The people of Nuevo San José have amazed me. Mainly by the fact that they still remain happy, while living in poverty, and their generosity towards both the "strange" students and fellow members of the community. For the first time, I have really understood the concept of community spirit as it certainly exists here."
"I've enjoyed this week immensely, thanks so much to everyone! You don't just come to the school, you come to the whole community... that is definitely a highlight!!"
