Have Fun Learning Spanish at Casco Antiguo Spanish School!
Jul 2021
It was so fun to study Spanish with super friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and excellent teaching staff at Casco Antiguo Spanish School. We loved the interactive classes to study language skills; uniquely designed lessons to meet our needs, combined with opportunities to practice through conversations, activities, and games. Being in the city was a wonderful asset, as there were so many opportunities to use our growing Spanish skills, and the local Panamanians were so supportive! We were encouraged to use our Spanish, even if they spoke English! It was a very positive experience for both me and my teenage daughter. One of the best parts of school were the extra curricular activities offered such as Salsa dancing, volleyball games, bike tours through the city, and happy hour gatherings. I hope to return soon for more Spanish with great people in a great location!

Enjoyable learning experience
Jul 2021
I wanted an immersive Spanish language experience and that is exactly what I got at the Casco Antiguo Spanish School. I ended my week of lessons wanting to continue studying and learning with them. From my initial outreach, David was responsive and friendly - all questions were answered and the process of the placement test and registration explained. While I had some Spanish language experience there were some gaps in my knowledge and proficiency. The lessons with Ero were fantastic - paced to address my areas of need while adding new content. As a teacher, I appreciated the blend of listening, speaking, reading and writing activities to engage me and for well rounded development. The extra curricular activities were a wonderful bonus - to be able to hang out and also practice the language, in a supportive setting. All the staff were warm and kind and it was nice to meet fellow students. I highly recommend the Casco Antiguo Spanish School for increasing my confidence and skills and being a great introduction to my experiences in Panama. Thanks everyone! From Nilaja

Casco Antiguo Spanish School provides you with a great opportunity to study and learn the Spanish language in a relaxed, fun environment. All of the teachers were always friendly and willing to help answer questions or just have a conversation between class times. David does a great job of making sure you have a great experience, not only with the Spanish school, but also during your stay in Panama. The instruction was thorough and demanded effort in order for learning to really occur! Overall a great experience.

Great place to improve your Spanish
Jun 2021
I recently had one week off of work and wanted to travel somewhere to practice my Spanish. I found Casco Antiguo Spanish School on Google and thought it seemed like a fun place to spend a week. From the first time I reached out for information, David was super responsive to all my questions and concerns. While in Panama, I ended up staying with a lovely local lady, Ana Gloria, who was super sweet and kind and willing to have long conversations with me fully in Spanish. I had two classes each day in the school, one with Ero and one with Hector. They both have very different teaching styles but having a class with each of them gave me a nice balance of conversation practice and grammar instruction. I particularly enjoyed being able to get out of the classroom to explore parts of Casco Viejo with my teachers -- that kind of experience isn't an opportunity you get with every Spanish school! Casco is a super cool area -- I rented a bike a couple times during my week to explore more after class. If you like to bike, it's a really cool area to do so -- I never felt unsafe in traffic and even though I occasionally got lost on the side streets I never lacked friendly locals to ask for help. Since I did travel in the midst of COVID, I wanted to address the situation with the virus in Panama. Although I hope with a higher vaccination rate some precautions will eventually no longer be necessary, I felt like health precautions and social distancing were much more thoroughly addressed and enforced there than back in the US. Overall, I had a great experience at the school and loved my time in Panama! If I have the chance, I'll go back to spend more time practicing Spanish and exploring the country -- one week is definitely not enough!

Excellent place to learn Spanish
Mar 2020
I took Spanish classes here for 5 days in the small intensive group format. It was super easy to organise, and was able to pay a deposit via PayPal before I arrived to Panama. The team were really friendly, and made it super easy - with prompt and detailed replies to my questions. The lessons are taught all in Spanish, which is fantastic for building up your ability to hear the language (if like me, you haven't already!). The lessons also come with a very useful workbook, that I'll continue to work through now I'm back home. And the lessons are broken up with interactive exercises to keep the 4 hour period engaging. I also really enjoyed the bike ride tour with the lovely David, as well as the salsa lesson. The school is also offering an awesome online option during the current COVID-19 lockdown - give it a go, whether or not you're in Panama City!

We did the salsa class offered - and it was amazing. Wonderful instructors. We didn’t do any language courses but we felt like we got salsa and language class together. Perfection!

Killer instruction and personable staff
Nov 2019
I spent a couple weeks here studying Spanish, in which I had absolutely no background (my placement test was laughable). Even after the first day I felt like I had a solid foundation, and the confidence required to attempt to speak a new language to natives is very important.

My instructors were incredibly friendly and made classes interesting, but I always felt like I was improving, not just getting through classes like I did in some language classes in school. After only a week I was better in Spanish than I'd been after an entire semester of another language! Everyone is encouraging and helpful, and the instruction is seriously top notch. It's easy to follow but you really learn the foundations of the language well, and the small groups at the same levels allow for very individualized progression.

Afterward I was able to backpack through areas of Central America in chicken buses and collectivos with no wifi and no English speakers, so I'm very grateful for my time at Casco Antiguo! David treats his staff very well, and in turn everyone will treat you well.

Best place to learn Spanish!

We planned on taking Spanish lessons here for one week, but ended up staying three weeks because we liked the school, teachers and lessons so much. The quality of the lessons is very good and the after-class activities are a lot of fun. Make sure you don't miss the bike tour with Kiki!

Highly recommend this Spanish Language School!
Jun 2019
I studied at Casco Antiguo Spanish School for 7 weeks and absolutely loved it! I had a variety of wonderful teachers, and the administrative staff is also amazing and very engaged with the students. The classes were fun and interesting, covering a wide variety of topics. The teachers and staff regularly requested my feedback and made an effort to tailor the classes to my language level and to my personal interests. My Spanish language abilities improved significantly! I also volunteered at a non-profit organization and stayed with a host family, both coordinated by the Spanish School. I absolutely loved the host family and have stayed in touch with them. My volunteer experience was also very enjoyable. I’ve studied at a number of Spanish language schools in a few different countries, and Casco Antiguo is my favorite!
