“2 weeks of intensive learning”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Although I had only 2 weeks available to study Spanish in Nicaragua, I enjoyed each moment of my time with the maestro. He's very knowledgeable, clear in explanations and patient to repete what wasn't caught on from previous information. The Spanish Ya school has great afternoon activities which may suit any interest, from surfing to dance to horse-backriding to volunteering in needy families. All are oprional but profitable to make your time at San Juan del Sur a valuable experience. It's a relaxing experience, an excellent way to spend holidays.

“Professional & Fun”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Spanish Ya was a great experience and my only regret is not having booked more time. The teachers are professional, friendly and fun. The curriculum is personalized with just the right amount of structured grammar and conversational support. Yajaira, the owner, is an energentic entrepreneur, justifiably proud of her creation working hard every day to ensure students have a positive and productive experience. Morning classes that leave your afternoons free are the best option. The school offers some excursions during the week, including horseback riding, surfing and zip-lines that are cheap and well organized. I've attended other Spanish schools in Latin America and Spanish Ya was the best of them all.
