I enjoyed 10 weeks of Spanish lessons in early 2014 at Latin American Spanish School. They are very professional, reasonably priced and fun. My teacher was Mariel. She has over 10 years of experience teaching Spanish and knows how to make class fun as she is laid back and quick with a smile or laugh. Her English is very good... More

The week was tailored to my specific needs & being 1-1 was at exactly the right pace. The tutors are lovely & not only teach you Spanish, but about Nicaraguan life & culture. It was definitely the best language experience I've had. Big thanks to Lucia & the gang.

This school is great, very helpful with flexible learning hours to suit your holiday or travel plans. Our teacher's name was Mariel, very nice and helped us with numerous things out of school.

Our family of four (kids ages 8 & 10) took lessons with LASS this month and the experience overall was positive. We found that the teachers were approachable and willing to work with us and our varying needs and preferences. While we all made progress, I was a bit disappointed by the amount of time that was spent by the... More

My boyfriend and I did a foreign exchange program through our University in Texas. We had no idea what to expect and were so happy and suprised by what we found. We took a total of 45 hours of Spanish over a 2 1/2 week span, and made life friends with our profesoras! They are so welcoming and invite you... More

my husband and I were fortunate to take lessons at this school for 2 weeks. We stopped by on a Monday with short notice and they were able to set us up with private lessons immediately. The staff is very professional and welcoming. Lessons were well planned. I was concerned that 4 hours per day would be too much- but... More

I only went for 5 days, only classes, 4 h each day so it was intense but I learned so much. I already knew the basics, which made it easier for me to handle so many new things in such a short time i think.. My teacher Vanessa was so kind and sweet and we really got along. This experience... More

The Latin American Spanish School was recommended to me by a friend who currently works for a non-profit in Nicaragua, and who was a student at the school a few years back.

I lucked upon this school the first time around, just walking by. But the second time I came in because another school I tried in another town was no comparison. So I came back to SJDS, LASS, and to an amazing teacher, Mariel. The school setting is a proper classroom where it is easy to concentrate and you're surrounded by... More
