I read a number of these reviews before taking my wife and 9 year old daughter to Habla Ya! for 2 weeks this summer, and all the positive stuff was true. It's what folks say it is, and we couldn't have been more pleased. My personal instructor (Profesora), was Leidys, and she's the best. She's got the ability to teach,... More

My daughter and I took private "mini-group" classes at Habla Ya in Boquete for one week. Classes are advertised as 4 hours -- but there is a 20 minute break each day so the time is actually a bit less than 20 hours per week. We enjoyed having two different instructors each day. The first instructor focused more on grammar... More

I did a three-week course at the Habla Ya School in Boquete, for a total of 75 hours. I went in with a strong foundation in "street Spanish", but the instructors at Habla Ya helped me refine my grammar and vocabulary. I also loved the staff at the Boquete campus, as well as the town itself [beautiful with lots to... More

Habla Ya truly lives up to its exceptional reputation. I was very nervous dedicating 2 weeks to a school that could have been a flop, but could not have been happier with my experience. The first few days I was unhappy with the flow and difficulty of my classes, and immediately after saying this I was given a different teacher... More

I spent 6 weeks at Habla Ya Boquete with Leidys as my teacher. She was a great teacher and was always up for changing the lessons focus or setting. Every Friday (and sometimes during the week) we would do an out of classroom activity which was a good change of pace when the energy levels start to drop. The school... More

I studied Spanish for 4 weeks at Habla Ya in Boquete, and had a great experience! Boquete is a beautiful town in the mountains, with lots of hiking and other outdoor activities available. My teacher, Yaira, is an expert at what she does. She is great at making everyone feel comfortable enough to practice speaking - which we did a... More

I spent 7 weeks at Habla Ya Boquete campus and had Tamara as my teacher for 6 weeks. I started Spanish from scratch in group classes. There was a lot to take in, and somedays I felt like I was going nowhere, especially being with some of my classmates who already knew +/- 4 other languages;), but Tamara made it... More

My wife and I just returned from Boquete, Panama where we studied Spanish for 2 weeks at Habla Ya. We've studied Spanish for almost 15 years, starting with lessons in a continuing education class at a local middle school. Eight years ago, we spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica at a language school and thought we'd give it a try... More
