Overall: I had a great experience at Spanish Ya, having classes in the morning, and then surfing in the afternoons at Maderas, or doing the afternoon activities with Spanish Ya (like horse riding, beach excursions, one day we went to a primary school show, etc). On weekends you have the opportunity to visit near-by attractions such as Omatepe, Granada (I... More

I recently attended 2 weeks at Spanish Ya and it was even more than I expected. I had a great time. The teachers were great and made the learning lots of fun. Included activities were a nice bonus and the home stay was excellent. Before I went here, I planned on attending a different school at another time, but after... More

Tried two others, Spanish Ya by far the best. Great teachers, place to learn. As I live here, I didn't want the intensive full time lessons, and they structure it so I can go at my own speed. It's up to you. The full time students appear happy with the school too.

I recently have taken some beginner spanish classes at Spanish Ya! All of the staff members I have worked with are very professional. I love the style of teaching as well. My teacher started with the alphabet and then on to the present tenses of popular verbs mixed with vocabulary as well. I plan on going back soon.

Great lessons, great teachers. This was the third school I spent time at during a recent trip through Central America and I thought the lessons were the best I had recieved.

I was at the school for two weeks right after the Holy holiday - mid April. It was the perfect time to be in SJDS due to the crowds had left after the holiday. The family was very nice. I liked that one can take moments to themselves throughout the day and then get together for meals. I was lucky... More

Studied at Spanish Ya for 2 weeks and had a great time and improved my command of what spanish I could learn in that amount of time. The instructors were all very professional in there approach to teaching, but always polite and gracious at the same time. I laughed a lot and learned a lot. So what else do you... More
