General Program Information
Hijos del Maiz is a project by the community for the community with over six years of experience in language instruction. We are a group of young people struggling for change and our spanish teachers are both agriculturalists and university graduates from the community.
Students will receive 4 hours of one-to-one classes each day with trained teachers. The student may decide each day where to hold the class, in a classroom or in a field under a tree.
In Hijos del Maiz the student learns Spanish and also learns about our lives as campesinos by sharing with us. The student is also invited to share his/her own knowledge whether it is practical, artistic, intellectual or spiritual. There are opportunities for students to work as volunteers on community projects in El Lagartillo or in neighbouring communities.
