In 2011, I took it upon myself to learn Spanish to help further my career. This resulted in me undertaking a two week course in Boquete with Habla Ya as a taster to see if I could learn the language. The two weeks went well and immediately on my return I secured a 3 month period of unpaid leave from my current employer.
During June, July and August 2012. I undertook 12 weeks of 1 on 1 tuition. Initially this was at 6hrs per day, which was good when going through the early levels however this left little time for homework and other activities, as the area around Boquete has amazing scenery and plenty of activities to keep you busy. For the later part I dropped down to 4hrs in part to help me with preparing for my DELE B1, which I am expecting the results very shortly.
During my stay, I had two main teachers. These were Jenni and Ismenia. Both teachers were excellent and although they both taught in different ways they were both able to bring the material alive. I can not praise them enough for their effort as I work in a very different environment and found that I fitted straight into the learning environment.
I really enjoyed my time in Boquete and am impressed by how much I picked up over the summer.
Thank you for the patience and the great time.
