I had a fantastic time in Boquete learning Spanish with Eduardo Espinosa and Leidys Pittì. Leidys was so lovely and loved her teaching style. Eduardo was so funny and he had us joking in Spanish in no time! I was there for 3 months and they did an awesome job of making me feel very welcome and were also very... More

I took three weeks of Spanish classes in Habla Ya - Bocas del Toro. It was an amazing experience. I took group and private lessons with two outstanding teachers (Bladimir and Sergio). The group lessons were in the school with two or three students from all over the world. The private lessons were in the school or on a terrace... More

Took an intermediate Spanish class with Tonis, and loved it! He was so helpful and patient and was great at explaining everything I didn't understand. He always had lots of fun games to help us learn new words and grammar. Wish I could have taken his class for longer, because I definitely learned a lot in a short time -... More

I spent 2 months at the Bocas del Toro campus and 2 months at the Boquete campus. The instructors were great! They were helpful, nice, and patient. The schools were in great locations. There were many fun things to do and adventures to be had. If you want to have more adventure time I would not recommend doing group and... More

From the teachers to the lessons to the after school activities, my experience at Habla Ya was amazing. I had my morning classes with Tonis and he was an outstanding teacher. He planned a lot of interactive activities and was patient and has a great sense of humor. There were 3-4 of us in the class at a time so... More

I've heard about Habla Ya Spanish Schools through the Internet. It had some good reviews so I decided to give it a try. I went to the Habla Ya School in Bocas del Toro and I took some private classes for two weeks. I had two different teachers and both were really friendly and professional. I could see that they...

I've been studying Spanish at our local community college, and think I learned more in a week at Habla Ya than in the typical semester. Their placement test and interview makes sure you are enrolled at your correct level, and for a week, you are speaking Spanish exclusively for four hours each day. The week I attended, I happened to... More

I just finished Graduate School, enroute to my first year of teaching 1st grade. I work at an elementary school in the inner city of Los Angeles, which is home to a large population of latino families. I could barely eek a few sentences of Spanish and I understood even less. I wanted to be as effective an educator as... More
