I thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks at Habla Ya. The curriculum was well structured, Omaris is an excellent teacher and the school does a great job of organizing social and cultural events for students. And of course the island beaches are stunningly beautiful

I had a wonderful experience at habla ya in Bocas, and I can recommend it whole heartedly to someone who is taking a leap and traveling to another country to study spanish based on reviews alone. That's what I did! I visited Bocas with the main goal of spending a few weeks in an immersion course, but I didn't want... More

I really enjoyed my experience in Bocas. The teachers are really nice and you can learn a lot in the School. I had 2 weeks class from 8-12 and we practiced especially grammar and Expression. You can meet lots of new friends in school and the weekend-trips they offer are really amazing.

I totally loved my experience with Habla Ya Spanish school in Bocas del Toro. I felt welcomed in all aspects, by the teachers, my fellow students and all of Bocas. Special thanks goes out to Gilberto, who I spent the major part of my studies with. Such a great guy. That, of course, applies to the rest of the staff... More

Habla ya was a good school. I liked the lesson time between 8-12 and my teacher Stephanie were the best spanish teacher I have had. I learned a lot of Spanish, but if I could wish one more thing we had been doing more I should say: TALKING. Because that's one of the most important thing when you need to... More

I found Habla Ya when I was searching for Spanish schools in Central America. I went to both their location in Boquete and then in Bocas del Toro, a week at each. I have to say that I found their location in Boquete to be run/managed much more professionally. But the teacher I had in Bocas del Toro made all... More

I was only able to stay in Bocas del Toro and attend Habla Ya for one week but I enjoyed my stay very much! The host family I was paired with through Habla Ya was WONDERFUL. I was able to form close relationships with them and I still chat with them now. I also really liked my teacher, Stephanie! She... More

I would like to recommend Adriana Santiago as a Spanish instructor in Bocas del Toro. I took private lessons with Adriana for 2 weeks and felt very confident and comfortable with the amount of Spanish we covered. She takes great pride in her job- ensuring daily that you have understood what was covered the day before and reviewing it thoroughly... More

I couldn't speak more highly of my experience with Habla Ya. I took only 1.5 weeks of classes (Intermediate 1) and I definitely wanted MORE! Before choosing Habla Ya (or Panama, really), I explored several Spanish language schools online, and initiated conversations with several. In prior years, I had taken semi-private lessons in short stints in Mexico City and in... More
