I took classes for a week and did the home-stay. Everybody is really nice, both at the school and my home-stay family. BUT nobody could speak any English at all. Since I didn't know any Spanish beforehand it was really frustrating. I couldn't ask any questions and the focus was mainly on grammar. My teacher didn't really understand that I needed really basic stuff. Not even the owner could speak English. It might be great if you already know some Spanish, but it didn't really work for me.

Really recommend casa nica to anyone wanting to improve their Spanish. We did a week of lessons, two of us sharing one teacher, and really learnt a lot. Our teacher - Bosco - was so friendly, patient and helpful. We also did a homestay, organised through the school, with a lovely family just a few doors down from casa nica, very close to the centre of Granada.

I participated in this school and homestay for one week. It was one of the best experiences in Nicaragua. I stayed with Vanessa and her family and they accommodated my vegetarian diet. I did 4 hours of private lessons and 4 hours of an activity per day. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable with Spanish lessons and Nicaraguan culture and history. It was my first week traveling alone and it provided me with the structure and confidence I needed to travel Nicaragua for a month. I highly recommend this homestay and Spanish school.

We stayed at the casa Nica language school for 2 weeks including homestay. We really liked our teacher, she was very professional, friendly and we had fun together ( we did 2-on-1 lessons). The homestay was great, perfect food and when I was sick they took really good care of me. The cultural activities we did with the school in the afternoon were a lot of fun, the teachers that went with us knew a lot. We can definitely recommend this language school, everything is possible, they are very flexible.

I had a one week homestay at Casa Nica.
It went very well. My instructor was Marlon who was very good. He was patient and corrected me when I needed it.... which was fantastic.
I would definitely recommend this Spanish School.
The activities were a great experience too.
Regarding the homestay, like other posts, it was not very clean. The family was lovely, but they really need to step up and clean the room that they are offering to visitors.
