Unfortunately, I did not have good experience with this school when it comes to taking online classes. My classes got often canceled. They do not give any head-ups or follow-ups unless you ask them why the lesson didn't take place. Sometimes, they say there was...More

I took classes at the Spanish school for a week, and it was a very nice experience. They have air conditioning in most rooms and classes are small, so only have a few other students with you at a time.

Hi All - I'm hoping to book a 1 month trip (March 2016) to study Spanish in Managua. My preference is group classes versus one-on-one. Does anyone know if Viva offers group courses (or if there are other schools in Managua that do)? Thanks in advance for your comments. April
