Habla ya was a good school. I liked the lesson time between 8-12 and my teacher Stephanie were the best spanish teacher I have had. I learned a lot of Spanish, but if I could wish one more thing we had been doing more I should say: TALKING. Because that's one of the most important thing when you need to... More

I found Habla Ya when I was searching for Spanish schools in Central America. I went to both their location in Boquete and then in Bocas del Toro, a week at each. I have to say that I found their location in Boquete to be run/managed much more professionally. But the teacher I had in Bocas del Toro made all... More

I was only able to stay in Bocas del Toro and attend Habla Ya for one week but I enjoyed my stay very much! The host family I was paired with through Habla Ya was WONDERFUL. I was able to form close relationships with them and I still chat with them now. I also really liked my teacher, Stephanie! She... More

I would like to recommend Adriana Santiago as a Spanish instructor in Bocas del Toro. I took private lessons with Adriana for 2 weeks and felt very confident and comfortable with the amount of Spanish we covered. She takes great pride in her job- ensuring daily that you have understood what was covered the day before and reviewing it thoroughly... More

I couldn't speak more highly of my experience with Habla Ya. I took only 1.5 weeks of classes (Intermediate 1) and I definitely wanted MORE! Before choosing Habla Ya (or Panama, really), I explored several Spanish language schools online, and initiated conversations with several. In prior years, I had taken semi-private lessons in short stints in Mexico City and in... More

My family and I (husband, wife and 2 boys, ages 8 and 10) studied Spanish at Habla Ya Bocas for two weeks. The teachers were amazing. My teacher, Diogenes, made me laugh so hard tears were running out of my eyes when we were studing the future tense in Spanish. My younger son's teacher, Iveth, was super-professional, and kept my...

I was in Bocas a couple weeks ago to dive and, since I'm learning Spanish, I decided to see if I could take some lessons at Habla Ya. I wanted private lessons: no problem. I wanted two hours in the afternoon only: no problem. I wanted 4 days and not 5: no problem. They quoted me a very reasonable rate,... More

I enjoyed my lessons very much with Habla Ya. My instructor Leidys was very helpful and patient and made me feel comfortable. She also shared a lot of helpful info about Panama to prepare me for my trip. I had a great time speaking Spanish there and I would highly recommend this company for your lessons.

I had a fabulous experience learning and practicing Spanish at Habla Ya in both Bocas del Toro and Boquete, mainly because of the teachers. I came with a lot of background knowledge of the grammar rules but was completely out of practice and therefore not very confident when speaking. I had 3 different teachers during my time there last summer... More
