I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months through Habla Ya. I did have some basic knowledge of Spanish at the time. My teacher, Leidys, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to... More

I have taken over 180 hours of Spanish classes in Habla Ya, an example of the proof being in the pudding. I wouldn’t return if I wasn’t pleased! But it goes deeper than that, ultimately it is the quality of the Profesora that determines the quality of the experience. I took part of Level A2 and levels B1 and B2... More

I stayed in Boquete during 2 weeks in march, and I had a lovely stay. The area and its nature is amazing. If you love trecking this is the right spot. The people are very friendly and as a singel woman traveller I always felt very safe and welcome. During this time I took 2 weeks of private Spanish lessons... More

Studying Spanish in Boquete was fabulous. My teacher, Yubal, is an absolute delight! I had actual taken several weeks of classes with him online via Skype and was SO excited when I was assigned to his class when I went Boquete and could meet him in person. I love that he uses a lot of different teaching tools so that... More

I've spent the last three weeks in Boquete, studying Spanish at the Habla Ya School. The climate is extremely temperate with a constant temperature of 70ºF and occasional showers in the afternoon. The school itself is wonderful and a perfect place to immerse oneself in Hispanic culture and language. My teacher, Leidys, was extremely kind and accommodating. She adapted the... More

My family and I studied Spanish this summer at Habla Ya for 7 weeks and had a wonderful experience. Boquete is a beautiful place with cool weather in the summer months, great restaurants and a ton of different activities for the whole family to do when we were not in class. I had Leidys as my teacher and she was... More

Habla Ya was a fantastic experience. I stayed 5 weeks and my teacher was Leidys. She is the best teacher I've ever had! She is extremely fun, kind, and her patience is endless. :) She definitely has a talent for teaching. The entire class was in Spanish, but I still understood everything that was going on in class (despite having... More

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
