We chose Habla Hispana for our week's study in San Miguel in Feb 2014 based on positive TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed! Classes begin the first week of the month but we didn't arrive until the beginning of the 4th week. No problema! Our language skills were quickly assessed and we were placed in classes. I felt a bit over... More

We studied Spanish for a week at Instituto Habla Hispana. It is a fine school, conveniently located near the center of town, with excellent teachers. The staff provides a warm, encouraging environment for the students to form friendships. Extra curricular classes such as cooking and music provide insight into the culture while enhancing language skills. This was a memorable experience.

I've attended Instituto Habla Hispana on three separate occasions. The staff are friendly, well qualified and are attentive to the needs of the students. I have attended several other language schools in various other countries, but Instituto Habla Hispana remains my favorite. The atmosphere is relaxed and it is an inviting place to learn. I highly recommend this language school... More

I attended this school several years ago and it was great place to study Spanish. San Miguel is a beautiful city. The best part of my experience though was the homestay. Marina and her family are incredible: friendly and very patient with new Spanish speakers, and I will add that she is an amazing cook ( she also teaches cooking... More

The instructors are friendly and knowledgeable and truly focus on helping you speak Spanish. You will work with 3-4 different instructors, depending on your level. You will receive a workbook and homework assignments. Everyday (M-F) you will spend time learning verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs and grammar. Always from the perspective of speaking. You will ask your questions in whatever Spanish... More

I attended Instituto Habla Hispana in the fall of 2008. It wasn't expected to be a highlight in my life; just another experience. But now, five years later, the value and impact of the experience is even more clear and more dearly appreciated. I've thought of my teachers so many times since then. It is always with appreciation and fondness.... More

I spent two weeks studying Spanish at Habla Hispana in San Miguel and I cannot recommend it highly enough. All of the teachers were helpful, supportive and informative. The format of the day was great, with rotating sessions of grammar, conversation, comprehension etc. I was very impressed with the free extracurricular activities on offer - a walking tour in Spanish,...

Tomorrow is my last day. I have been to language schools all over latin America and this has been my best fit. Their flexibility and emphasis on conversation over academics worked for me. I love all 4 teachers, each for different reasons, and the way they mix it up keeps it all interesting and a great deal of fun. The... More

They were awesome!!! I wish I could go back this year, maybe next year. They were very good at getting a host family for me to stay with. It was very reasonable. $22.00 per night and that included 3 meals. So so reasonable

The teachers are fabulous and patient here at Habla Hispana. If you want something intense, more than 4 hours a day, check out La Academia which is only a 10 minute walk from Habla Hispana. Both are great for different reasons. Best part of San Miguel for me was the host family. Ask for Maria and Alejandro, they live about... More
