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

I enjoyed my month in San Juan del Sur, studying Spanish in the mornings with Claudia and surfing in the afternoons at Maderas and Playa Hermosa. Claudia is an excellent instructor. She's knowledgeable, patient, interested in seeing her students progress, and just plain fun to hang out with. I highly recommend Spanish Ya!

Spanish Ya is by far the best learning experience in SJdS on several levels. The teachers are patient and helpful, whether you are a beginner or already speak Spanish and just... More
