Good management, just fully train teachers
Jun 2020
I am sure they are great, but the classes didn't work out for me. The management was very helpful. I would recommend they fully train teachers before hiring to ensure the best.

One year of learning Spanish with Habla Ya & Ana
May 2020
I have been taking Spanish learning classes at Habla Ya since April 2019 at their Panama City campus with the goal to give Advanced level(C1) exams in May this year. Now that I am due to give my exams shortly, I wanted to share my experience over the past year… it has been an incredible journey full of fun, laughter and hopefully a happy ending!
I had started with the group classes and after two months shifted to private classes.During the initial months I had Stephany and Jesus as my professors- both young, committed and excellent- and now since the past 10 months am being taught by Ana who is phenomenal!! Infact , it’s not just the professors but also the front office staff (Dwan and Ashley) who always make you feel right at home since day one. Especially Dwan has been so kind and helpful every single time that I needed to change my timings owing to having emergencies in my high pressure full time job. The flexibility and the personal touch of the team members of Habla Ya is incredible. Never over the past one year has arisen any occasion when the team has not come forward with innovative solutions for ensuring that my learning progresses without any hindrance.
No words of praise are enough for my lovely professor Ana who is a powerhouse of knowledge, empathy, motivation and enthusiasm. There have been difficult days when I lost my motivation to continue, when learning seemed impossible… but those were the days she doubled up and bought me back on track with different learning techniques, motivational speeches and a never say die attitude! Infact over the past two months in spite of all the negative consequences of the COVID19, none of the professors have given up on their commitment and sincerity. Each day Ana through her online classes keeps me on course and motivated for my exam. No better moment to tell you Ana and all your wonderful colleagues at Habla Ya , how truly grateful I am to you all and how blessed I feel to have chosen to study at this institute!!

Learning Spanish with Simon Abraham at Habla Ya - Panama City
Feb 2020
I completed two weeks of Spanish immersion in Panama City with Habla Ya. I had not taken formal Spanish lessons before but had picked up a little bit of Spanish through travel and from Spanish-speaking co-workers. By the time I left, I feel I had advanced in my ability to understand and speak Spanish. The instructor, Simón Abraham was exceptional. I had Simón for both group lessons and private tutoring. Simón is extremely patient and explains things (in Spanish) in a way that allows you to understand the concepts he is teaching. Simón uses Habla Ya’s curriculum but also adapts it to the needs of his students. Perhaps the best thing about the Habla Ya method is that they stress speaking the language. Yes, I made mistakes constantly and Simón would gently correct them. However, it helped me get over my reluctance to speak and increased my confidence. I only wish that I had stayed longer than two weeks!

Six Fantastic Weeks at Habla Ya!!
Dec 2019
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Habla Ya. Our Professor, Simon Abraham, was patient, and understood our different learning needs. The course was challenging (4 hours per day + homework), and very rewarding. All the staff at Habla Ya were friendly and helpful. The after class activities with our Professor and other students were not only fun, but gave us real life practice using our newly acquired Spanish skills. Muchas Gracias Simon y Habla Ya!

HablaYa! Con Prof. Simón
Dec 2019 • Family
I'm really pleased with the experience I had at Habla Ya! The classes were very interactive: games, videos, stories etc. Prof.Simon was very helpful, patient, & engaged. Classes were well planned and incorporated different types of learning. We even had class outside of the classroom which I enjoyed. I enjoyed the activities that were available and the other members of the HablaYa! team (honorable mentions to Dwan, Stephany, Gabriel, and Howard who helped along the way) were great as well. Thank you all for the experience!

Learn Spanish fast w/Simon
Jan 2020
I'm really glad I did Habla Ya! The classes were very interactive and I learned a lot of Spanish very quickly. My teacher Simon was very hands-on and helped me increase my fluency at a great pace. He was very attentive and made class fun! Classes were well planned and incorporated different types of learning. We even visited a coffee shop.

Definitely recommend this program
Sep 2019
4 weeks at this language immersion program in Panama City was just not enough! You will be able to meet students from all over the world. The staff is incredible! Everyone is so welcoming and patient. They genuinely want to get to know you and see you improve. Whether its a movie night, salsa class, or dinner there are always activities to practice spanish, form relationships with the staff and fellow students, and fully immerse yourself in the Panamanian culture. I loved my group lessons with Stephany. She is such a helpful, fun, and informative teacher! We are still in contact and she continues to help me improve. I also enjoyed my private lessons with Gabriel. They were both so encouraging and willing to help me grow even outside of the classroom. You won't regret your time at Habla Ya!

Great Interactive Learning Experience at Habla Ya
Jul 2019
My experience at Habla Ya Panama City campus was very enjoyable. The staff was very welcoming, and all of them took an interest in getting to know me. They were also very flexible when it came to my learning needs and used different approaches to help me learn the Spanish language. Both Yarixell and Stephany were very helpful, understanding, and patient when it came to every lesson. Also, I like how the entire staff took the time to correct you during a conversation to help you improve your conversational skills. Throughout the week, they also have actives around the city to help you explore Panama City and allows you to practice your Spanish with locals. Great place to take Spanish lessons!!!

The Teachers Are AMAZING
Aug 2019
I was at Habla Ya for 6 weeks this summer. The best part of my experience was by far my amazing teacher. Benita was creative, encouraging and detail oriented. She was absolutely fantastic at explaining grammatical rules I struggled with.

I really enjoyed getting to know other students at the school and liked the way the school organized activities.

I hope the teachers are paid well for the excellent work they do.

Habla Ya is an amazing school located in a wonderful city
Aug 2019
Hello everyone! I am a little behind on my reviews, but I wanted to take some time now and explain how my experiences with Habla Ya Spanish School were. During the months of May and August of 2019, I traveled to Panama City, Panama twice for the purpose of studying Spanish in an immersion type environment. First, I will elaborate on my initial trip and follow it up with my most recent trip last month.

May 2019 Trip: For two weeks, I had the privilege of staying with a host family (full immersion) while attending classes Monday-Friday at the school site. That experience alone was beyond amazing and I cannot imagine a better way to take advantage of a country’s culture, language, food and history. Mery and her family were fantastic and they treated me like a part of their family from the start. Before long, Panama started feeling like a second home to me. The living accommodations were great (middle class family home) and the area was right in the heart of Panama City. Highly recommended!

School Site: The entire staff was amazing, especially Dwan and Ashley from the front office. However, Dwan is the best! She went above and beyond her responsibilities as HR Director and made my experience in Panama the best. I bugged her everyday about activities throughout the city, tours, restaurants etc. and she always went the extra mile to ensure I was taken care of.

Instructor: Erian was my professor for the full two weeks and I cannot express in words how impressed I was with him and his style of teaching. What I enjoyed the most was how he catered the lessons to my style of learning. For example, I am a visual learner and Erian set up tours and trips to enhance my weekly curriculum. One of the best lesson was our trip to the Panama Canal and one I will remember for a very long time! Thanks Erian..

Aug 2019 Trip: Back in Panama for two more weeks and this trip was even better. This time around, I decided to stay in a hotel because I wanted to experience the city amongst the locals and interact as if I was living in Panama alone. I was able to hang with friends that I meet from my first trip and experience Panama in a completely different light. Panama is now one of my favorite places to visit!

School Site: The staff is still as amazing as before and Dwan is still dealing with me! She has become my good luck charm in Panama because anything I needed, wanted to know or was lost about, she was always there. Thank you Dwan!!

Instructor: Stephane was my professor for the full two weeks in August and she took my Spanish to new levels. She is a Grad student as am I and we were able to connect on so many different levels and I appreciate that so much. As I mentioned earlier, I learn better visually, so we went to several different places throughout Panama (the museums were the best) and tied that to my style of learning! Stephane, you rock!

Moving forward, my plan is to continue studying with Habla Ya over the next few years and visit their two other locations/sites throughout Panama. Please look into this program if you are learning or want to learn Spanish. It is phenomenal!
