I spent 2 weeks at Boquete in mid March 2014. The school is well organised. The language staff are all very competent and friendly. They want you to learn and are good at encouraging you and giving you confidence. (Thanks Yubal and Leidys). The office staff are great and very supportive and will help you on all your queries. And... More

I spent two of my three weeks in Panama studying Spanish in Boquete. I enrolled for group lessons but got lucky and had the class all to myself. Widad did a great job helping make the complex rules of the subjunctive more understandable. I had been studying on my own for the past 2 years and the time in the... More

My first week at Habla Ya was in Boquete with Araliz and later with Jenny. I booked group lessons but was alone. Both the teachers were patient and knew exactly how a student learns the best. I couldn't speak a word Spanish when I came, after one week I could easily do my groceries and had a simple conversation with... More

For the 3rd year in a row, we took Spanish lessons at Habla Ya. We only take lessons for a total of 6 to 12 hours a week, depending on our schedule, for 2 or 3 weeks while we are in Boquete. Nevertheless, we are always treated as if we are important customers. Each year, we have had terrific teachers... More

First rate language school. Several of my friends stayed with families and were very happy with their friendly host families.

I spent eight weeks with Habla Ya in Boquete from September-November 2013. I chose Habla Ya because of the thorough information and excellent customer service provided through their website and staff as I was making a decision about where to travel and enroll. They offer six levels of classes (A1/2, B1/2, C1/2 - aligned with the DELE exam) and give... More

I spent 3 days at Habla Ya recently, all my holiday plans gave me time for. I wanted to jump-start my infrequently used Spanish and brush up on whatever needed it. Having spoken a lot of Spanish at times in my life, I was not sure what I needed. Walking in late in the day before a holiday, Habla Ya... More

My family and I spent two weeks studying Spanish in Boquette. Our instructers, Paola, Analiz, Yubal and Areliz were wonderful. My 8 year old studied with Irasema and my 10 year old studied with Tamara. They really engaged our sons in the learning process. In addition to the great instruction, one of the highlights of our visit was a day-trip... More

We had an excellent survival Spanish course (4x4 hours) at Habla Ya Boquete owith my husband. Everything was more than great and customized to our needs. We wished for a course including a lot of talking needed in general situations (restaurants, hotels etc.) as that was our most urgent need. Our teacher was great and very skilled and we had... More
