I spent two weeks in Boquete trying to advance my B1 level to B2. Both Leidys and Eduardo were excellent. Leidys was friendly, funny and worked hard to help me with my listening skills. The school worked hard to rearrange my classes and my teachers gave me great advice on where to eat like a local. Overall a very positive... More

I spent three weeks in Boquete and two weeks in Bocas del Toro taking classes at Habla Ya. I had five different instructors in a mix of group and private classes, and I really appreciated the different styles of each one. (They also spoke with each other about my progress so that there was an easy transition between schools and... More

I spent several weeks studying at Habla Ya in Boquete, Panamá. I have taken classes in Spanish before, both in a small group setting and private classes. I am happy to say that my teacher in Boquete, Eduardo, was excellent. I had him for group lessons and, for a brief time, in 1-on-1 lessons. In group lessons, he taught a... More

I recently spent four weeks escaping a cold Canadian winter attending Habla Ya Spanish schools in Boquete and Bocas del Toro in Panama. As a retired educator and school administrator I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. Even though many of the students were younger than me I did not feel out of place. The instructors were professional... More

We spent 5 weeks with Habla Ya in their 3 locations in Panama and attended a so called Minigroup, which means that it was only us two and the teacher. 1 week in Panama City, 2 weeks in Boquete and 2 weeks in Bocas del Toro. The help and information we received before we got to Panama was very good,... More

I had a teacher named Edwardo Espinosa who definitely helped me learn Spanish is more fun and interesting ways. We would play card games in only Spanish. Also, we played... More

It's clear that they really know grammar and proper teaching techniques. They patiently and thoroughly answered every one of my many questions. They are gifted teachers who impart knowledge in a way that the student... More
