Leidys, my final teacher, was great and I loved her enthusiasm. Too bad some of the course materials I received early on (from another instructor) were full of errors and/or lacked punctuation. This is a huge stumbling block for language learners. So thumbs up for Leidys but thumbs down for the poor materials and unprofessional behavior of some other staff... More

Once again I studied Spanish at Habla Ya from 23rd May to 16th June. This is the sixth visit and again my private teacher was Leidys with whom I have always had a very personal and friendly relationship. Because of my advanced level I often had questions which she could answer very professionally. This time we worked with the passive... More

I studied with Habla Ya in Boquete for 4.5 months (private classes, 4 hours a day) and I had a great experience. I worked with Tamara for the majority of the time and I loved her! Her explanations were so clear. If I didn’t understand something, she would always find another way to explain it to me. And she was... More

Three years ago I enrolled in online two hour Spanish classes at Habla Ya. I already understood a bit of Spanish and I wanted to learn more and sharpen my skills, and that is exactly what Habla Ya did for me. My online teacher, Leidys Pitti, has to have been one of the best teachers I've had at any school... More

This is a well-organized professional organization. You will enjoy the experience, the relationships with fellow students of all ages, and the wonderful Boquete lifestyle. Our teacher was personable and effective, and our Spanish was noticeably improved. Fun, relaxed and we learned a lot as well!

It was my second visit of Boquete and the Habla Ya Spanish School. After two weeks in 2014 I attended one week of group classes and after that one more week with private lessons by Leidys. It was an excellent experience. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and wants you to have a great time. My teacher Leidys is a... More

If you want to learn or improve your Spanish Language Skills and you’re interested in doing that in a beautiful mountain town with an eternal spring like climate year round you won’t find a better place than the Habla Ya Spanish School in Boquete, Chiriquí, Panamá. Of course you probably won’t be in school all day, so better to be... More

I studied at Habla Ya in Boquete for 2 weeks. I was very pleased with the quality of instruction. I was initially placed in a small group class with Leidys. However, during the first couple of hours she noticed from my speech that I already knew some of the subjects her class was going to cover. Therefore she suggested I... More
