This summer I was able to attend language school to improve my Spanish. From the many options, through references and local research by friends, I chose Habla Ya in Panama. It was an AMAZING experience. I attended classes in Boquete, which is a beautiful location. It is a small town, but with a very diverse and interesting weekly market, a colorful and interesting city center, and mouth-watering bakeries.
I attended group classes the first week, 4 hours per day for 5 days. It was intimidating at first because my last language class was almost 20 years ago. However, the instructor, Leidys, put me at ease. She was very good at working at my pace while still pushing me. I was very happy with the progress I made. The second week, I took private lessons. I attended 2 days for 2 hours per day with Aráliz. She was wonderful and worked with me on the specific issues that I needed. Overall, the experience was intense, tiring, and gave me a terrific feeling of accomplishing a life goal. I hope to be able to return again! I would highly recommend the school and these professoras to anyone looking to improve their language skills.
