Overview

Global Family Travels' pillars are to Learn, Serve and Immerse, and our partner Na'atik's online Spanish classes are a great way to immerse yourself and learn a language and culture from the comfort of your home, and still serve the Mexican community to support education for the local students too! The classes are available via Google Meet, so you will get face-to-face contact with incredible Na’atik Spanish teachers in Mexico. 

Tailored to your level and interests, the one-on-one or small group classes (maximum 3 people) are personalized to meet your language goals. These classes can help prepare for job opportunities, test out of university or high school classes, or simply have fun learning a new language during this 'new normal'. Classes are usually a blend of grammar and conversation with Mexican culture and history mixed in. However, advanced students can focus on conversation-only for fluency building.

Every booking helps fund Na'atik's English language program which provides valuable education for local students. Learn Spanish while giving back to the local community in Mexico!

Na'atik offers one or two-hour-long classes: daily, weekly, or on a schedule that suits your availability.

ABOUT NA'ATIK

Na’atik Language and Culture Institute was founded by Catherine Gray (now dual citizen US/Mexico) and her Mexican-Maya husband Pedro Esquivel Puc in 2010.

After working in the non-profit sector in Seattle, Catherine traveled to Felipe Carrillo Puerto in 1996 to volunteer for a local charity. It was then that she fell in love with local-born Pedro and took her first step into teaching English at the town’s Casa de la Cultura. Catherine returned to Seattle to get TESL certified and then she and Pedro worked in South Korea and traveled around Asia before returning to Mexico. They got married on the beautiful beach of Tulum and today, Catherine, Pedro and their two amazing bilingual children, Piero and Madeline, are an active part of the community.

Through Na'atik's affordable, encouraging English language classes (Cursos de Inglés), we aim to teach students in the local Maya community the skills to visualize and achieve their dreams. Our English classes are helping students access well-paid jobs, study for careers like medicine, engineering, and education and to travel the world. Donations to Na’atik Projects, our US 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, help us keep English classes affordable and provide scholarships to bright, deserving students in our community.
