Instructors and staff were always very welcoming and friendly. The school was able to tailor a class specific to our learning needs and availability. They helped us organize the rest of our trip as well including the homestays which were amazing, our tour days and a driver. Overall a very good experience that I would do again, and recommend to...

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

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

We came to Managua in January to work for four months, and needed intensive, one-on-one instruction. Viva Spanish provided us with daily lessons for three weeks, two hours per day, with outstanding teachers. The lessons were well geared to our varying skill levels. In addition, although we didn't need it, the school also coordinates comfortable home-stays, and interesting excursions. The... More

I had a great experience studying Spanish at Viva Spanish School. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I always felt very welcome at the school, and enjoyed spending time outside of class there too. My teachers were very helpful and knew what they were doing.
