Similar to my last conversation I had, one of my questions was wrong, but quickly corrected by the person I was speaking to. The person I was talking to Alberto was from Guatemala, and explained to me how their education system worked. The question was at first misinterpreted and he told me about his own experience in education in Guatemala, which isn't what I asked, but glad he did say. I meant to originally include a more personal question for the person, as I have done in the past, but it slipped my mind with this one. I found out that the education system is Guatemala is similar to our one. Small children attend something similar to kindergarden and at five begin to enter the basic cycle of education, such as a graded system. Following that, the children's academic life becomes more diversified, as they have more options to expand their education. Children between the ages of 14-17 are trained for a more specific. 17 year olds often then go to college to further their education, graduating when they're 23 or 25, similar to in the States.
In college, the general structure is that there are 52 courses that are often taken within the five years that someone attends, till they obtain their degree. Much like the credit system that we have our here. I found this interesting, because it seems that there's a similar structure of education that doesn't just exist in the US. My last question for my partner was misunderstood, but I essentially wanted to know what were popular universities, as how in the states we have extremely prestigious ones. I wanted to know if there was anything similar to the Ivy Leagues that we have here, or the Big Ten. I asked my question again, but my partner still did not understand it. I took it upon myself to look up the best university in Guatemala, and found that it was the Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala, which was a very small school, with only 421 students attending. I found that very interesting, as it's even smaller than some liberal art schools (and even SLA.) Overall, this person was especially helpful with conversation, and I learned a lot about their educational system in relation to our own.
