I just finished a week at Nicargua Mia and I enjoyed myself tremendously. I had Martha as my teacher and I stayed by Doña Mercedes. From start to end it was a great experience as I was picked up at the airport by a taxi and we chatted along the way. We first stopped a the school where I met Carla and Martha and then went to my home stay. The homestay had different meals every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and it was great. I had my own room and was complete with a fan. The homestay was completely in Spanish, which is what I wanted to push myself to the next level.
I came into the experience expecting to improve my Spanish as I have taken classes before and could hold a conversation, with someone but needed to reduce the errors I make while speaking, which is different from doing book exercises. My Spanish has definitively improved. The classes were 99% done in Spanish, which is what I had asked for. Towards the last few days I had written homework which was fun. The afternoon activities were also great. We went to Laguna de Apoyo, Los mercados de Masaya, did a bicycle tour around Granada and Posintepe, and went to the Mirador a Catarina. It was great, I met cool people at the school and in all had a lot of fun.
I would do this again in a heartbeat, and would totally recommend the experience to anyone.
