I had lessons for 2 weeks and would have loved to prolong but my time was limited. All was great: teacher and quality of the lesson (mine and the ones from the other students), atmosphere at school, set up in the school (lessons were outside), stay at the family and flexibility of the school to adjust (was not needed for...

I had the pleasure of being a student and guest of a host family with Spanish Ya for two months in the summer of 2012. The Spanish Ya staff and my host family made that summer wonderful for me. The instructors were flexible to my time constraints and learning goals (I was working part-time for a medical clinic during that... More

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.

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
