My sister and I just attended Casa Nica for five days. Our instructor, Marlon, is an exceptional person and teacher. Funny, fun, entertaining, very intelligent, kind, sensitive, thoughtful, and full of stories about his own life and life in Nicaragua in general. Because my sister tends to be late but needs her breakfast, on four of the five days we... More

Spanish teachers in Central America are paid the equivalent of about $2 per hour, however Spanish schools that offer Skype classes online often charge $15 or more per hour. Translation: the school owners are the ones that keep most the money. Over the years I have looked long and hard for a capable Spanish tutor via Skype that charges a... More

I tagged along on a trip to Nicaragua with my cousin and her two co-workers who planned this trip, so I did not know what to expect. I ended up loving Granada (with the exception of the heat), my home stay mom (Martha), my teacher Vanessa, and the other three teachers Marlon, Raquel, and Paola. What I loved about Vanessa... More

My son and I attended classes here our first three days to brush up our Spanish and we found the teachers first rate. Also a great way to spend some quality time with educated locals to have compelling discussions (in Spanish) about Nicaraguan history, culture, politics, etc. AND get to meet interesting people from other countries there to learn as...

I studied at Casa Nica for one week in January 2014, and it was the perfect start of my stay in Nicaragu. My teacher, Marlon, was able to determine my level of Spanish really quick, and in addition he made if fun even learning the past tenses that I struggled a lot with. He could always make me laugh and... More

I was in Granada during the Christmas week. First of all, Nicaragua is considered one of the safest countries in Central America, not to mention it is much cheaper and less touristy than Costa Rica, where I saw lots of U.S. fast food restaurants everywhere. Granada is not "contaminated" by the American capitalism, and I hope it will not be... More

I had one week of classes in December 2013 in which I had two different teachers. Both of them were great teachers and also fun people to hang out with. The activities in the afternoon are a great way to get to know Granada and its surroundings. My homestay was with the owner of the school Vanesa and her family.... More

The school itself is small and informal. we took the 20 hour week, We had 4 hours per day with... More

This is a small school about 3 blocks from the plaza. I wanted only a few hours of conversation since I have a basic knowledge of Spanish. Carla, the owner, was mi profesora. Not only did she have an intensive knowledge of the nuances of the language but also she was a stimulating conversationalist. Don't expect fancy classrooms and an... More
