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

During the summer of 2016 I enrolled in classes with my girlfriend. Our first impression of the campus was very positive. The staff at reception was very accommodating toward our budget and we loved the options. We took a small group session and were matched with our teacher Ricardo. He went above and beyond to help us gain a comprehensive... More

I had one weeks' worth of one to one classes with Tonis to just get the basics to help me on my travels across central America. He was very good at speaking in Spanish the whole time during the lessons. He spoke clearly and vert slowly. I highly recommend him.

Habla Ya gave me a great Spanish foundation for my Central American travels. The school was great with email communication before my trip and was very helpful during my stay. Ricardo was a great instructor, and the course materials and instruction are very organized. I have since attended other Spanish schools and have not yet seen a program this refined.... More

My daughter and I spent a week in each location, both great but very different experiences. I am a Spanish teacher and felt that the instruction in both places was excellent. We stayed with host families which I believe is an absolute must as it provided a richer and authentic experience. Once piece of advice I would give to families... More
