OPI Spanish Test Preparation
CX offers the OPI Spanish Test Preparation Oral Proficiency interview in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, and online with skype. The OPI is a structured assessment to establish the student’s speaking level of functional ability.
This test is also used to measure the strengths and weaknesses of the student’s speaking oral proficiency. Created by the Foreign Service Institute of the US government more than 40 years ago, the original OPI was modified by the American Council of Teachers of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
Currently, the OPI is an oral test that bilingual and Spanish teachers must take in order to establish their level and obtain their teaching credentials. It is also used by school districts to assess oral proficiency in Spanish before the candidate is hired.
Gracias, Henry! Fue un gran día. Tengo buena noticia. Pasé mi examen (OPI). Soy profesora de español profesional ahora! Nicole Poore, Claiborne High School, TN. 2/5/15
Judith’s classes were on point. She is an experienced, knowledgeable teacher who gave me all the tools I needed to pass the OPI. She was also really fun.
I looked forward to talking to her each week, which made improving my language skills so much easier.

My name is Sam, and I studied at Casa Xelaju for three weeks in August of 2015. I was enrolled in the Oral Proficiency Interview class. I had taken the OPI many times before and started to feel extremely discouraged that I could not reach my goal of the Advanced-Low score.
I researched some of my options online, and luckily I found Casa Xelaju in Guatemala. I decided to take three weeks of classes there to improve my Spanish and gain more confidence speaking the language. I worked with their amazing professors and staff to create a curriculum toward passing this test.
During my time there, I lived with an awesome host family, went to classes and cultural activities during the week, and participated in other cultural activities on the weekends. By the time my test day arrived, I felt confident and prepared to do my best.
I am thrilled to say that I finally achieved the Advanced-Low score on the OPI thanks to my experiences, professors, and staff at Casa Xelaju. Now I’m working as a Spanish teacher! email@example.com
