My week in Boquete was a wonderful experience. So much to love about this town. I studied Spanish for a week with Habla Ya while I was there. The system of study is set up well and I like the approach of balancing grammar with conversation in the class. My teacher was Arelis and I would highly recommend her. She... More

I attended the beautiful new school Habla Ya Panama City and was very welcoming and cozy from teachers and staff. Even the fantastic hostel accommodation in Panama House a few meters from the school was really amazing. I speak Spanish for more than ten years and I wanted to try my first experience in the classroom to get my basic... More

I attended Habla Ya for three weeks in January and February. I went with my husband who wanted to further his more advanced Spanish. I was in a beginner class with five others, two women and three men. Four of us were 60ish and the other two in their thirties. I was the only American. It made for interesting conversation... More

First, let me start out by saying that the entire staff is amazing. They are highly geared towards meeting each and every student's needs, while remaining affordable. The Spanish classes are fun, not traditional, and allow you to be yourself. The location is perfect. There are coffee shops, souvenir shops, and restaurants all within the plaza or very, very close... More

I'm a native English speaker from the U.S., and my Spanish was at a low intermediate level when I started at Habla Ya. I really enjoyed my time at the location in Boquete, and I learned a lot. I am now quite conversational (of course I still make tons of mistakes!), and I am able to speak Spanish with my... More

It is great taking Spanish classes at Habla Ya. My instructor Leidys is fun and has great conversations with me during class. I would suggest Habla Ya for your Spanish learning experience.

Spent three hard-working weeks here in January & February 2015. I started at the bottom and learned a ton of stuff. I likened the first two weeks to a tour of a kitchen: here's the stove,and the sink, these are the pots, frying pans, knives, onions, flour, butter etc etc; all basic structural stuff that you'll use effectively once you...

I recently attended A2 level classes at Habla Ya's Boquete campus, and I was very impressed with my teacher, Leidys. She has a warm personality, good sense of humour, speaks clearly, and has lots of patience. One day I was not feeling well and was struggling to keep up with the conversational material (unlike me, the other student in the... More

Habla Ya is an excellent school for gringos who wish to learn Spanish so that they can communicate with more ease and confidence. Their workbooks are easy to use and I really enjoyed my individual classes with Yubal. I feel much more confident speaking Spanish now, which is particularly important since I'll be moving to Cuenca, Ecuador this year. I... More
