I took a Spanish class here and loved the instruction. Professional, good facilities, and I learned a lot quickly. This is probably the best place to study Spanish in Managua. However, if your not stuck in Managua for work or something, it doesn't make sense...More

I took classes at the Spanish school for a week, and it was a very nice experience. They have air conditioning in most rooms and classes are small, so only have a few other students with you at a time.
