I started in the intermediate class with about seven students total. I was unhappy with the teacher who went off on tangents and had an arrogant attitude. I spoke to the director who was very understanding and I was able to switch to individual lessons. My instructor, Marta, for the individual lessons was excellent and I learned a lot. I... More

Did a terrific 3-week program for beginners at this lovely school. The director Angelica is so professional and accommodating and my teacher was terrific. I had from 1-3 other students in my class and it was an excellent beginning in Spanish. The other students were from all over and everyone was very friendly and interesting. I did a home stay...

I've been reluctant to review this special place. Been here 3 times and the teachers are so good. The residence was for me awesome. Personal space is large which is what matters to me as there are a zillion great restaurants nearby. Yes the oven didn't work and they no longer supply the water. But the fridge is huge! The... More

My husband and I both have very demanding jobs and we managed to both take sabbaticals at the same time so we can learn to speak Spanish fluently, each to support our work and become more relevant in our local community. We searched many, many, places and schools, and picked the Instituto Habla Hispana and I am so glad we... More

My husband and I had a great experience at the school! We really enjoyed Socorro for our main teacher, made it really fun! We would go back again and probably also stay at the school. The living quarters looked lovely.

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
