Had a great experience taking private classes here. I had learned quite a lot in the past just from traveling to different spanish-speaking countries, but had never taken a class before. As a result, I didn't fit the standard progression - in some ways I was too advanced for beginner and too beginner for advanced. They did a fantastic job... More

The teachers and the management are great! It's really good that you can choose how often you want to go, depending on what you're doing in Managua. Really nice people!

The Viva Spanish School was simply wonderful overall. It was my first time in Nicaragua and everyone there is eager and willing to make you feel right at home. They also had very limited time to prepare for the specialized curriculum that I, and a few friends, had requested of them. However, not only were they able to pull it... More

Vivia Spanish school has been really helpful to find time to help me out even with my work schedule. The tutors are able to take a question about a verb or grammar topic and... More

I am an emergency medicine physician in training and traveled to Nicaragua for the first time to resurrect what little once existed of my Spanish and to observe the public hospitals in Managua. My trip was two and a half weeks. This place is an excellent starting point for anyone with a remote interest in visiting Nicaragua for any reason.... More

Traveled to Nicaragua Feb 2014 and greatly enjoyed my semi-intensive spanish program while working at local hospitals through a relationship with my home US institution in Managua. I had previous spanish experience in college (university), but after years without regular use, certainly had become rusty. As US practicing professionals, spanish skills are a great asset and the Viva Spanish school... More
