A Rewarding Learning Experience!!

Leidys Pitti is a friendly and attentive professor who delivered well-planned and well-paced lessons that ensured maximum comprehension. Her knowledgeable and experienced teaching gave us the confidence to carry conversations solely in Spanish. Her strength lies in her willingness to share Panamanian cultural norms and customs alongside her lessons. Her amiable nature and quick wit made the experience enjoyable and rewarding.

It ist definitely worth it

After a stay in Boquete in 2014 and 2016 I visited Boquete again in 2017. And once more I took Spanish classes at the Habla Ya Spanish School.

I booked 4 weeks of group lessons in advance and extended my stay with more private lessons. I got a promotion offer and got a free diving class in Bocas as I booked some time in advance.

For the second time I attended classes with Leidys Pitti. I was very glad that the school made it happen that I could join her class again. Within 4 weeks we finished one level and she gave me good advices for the upcoming DELE exams.

Everyone at HablaYa is really friendly and helpful and for me it felt like coming home this time. If you have any questions - no matter what kind of question - they are there to help you.

That is why I honestly want to thank everyone at HablaYa and especially Leidys for the wonderful time I had in Boquete.

Great to learn Spanish

I had only one week in Habla Ya in Panama City but thanks to my awesome teacher (Sergio) I could make so many progresses. The staff is very friendly, helpful and determined to make your experience there the best as possible. My teacher found the perfect way for me to improve my skills and I had a lot of fun learning from him. The teachers try to adapt the learning method based on the individuals. I really liked this personal touch.

Awesome Spanish school and experience!

Very informative and helpful. Everyone is very friendly! The teachers are all very patient. Classes aren't too big and classes are fun! I went alone, but I also knew several families that went together and really enjoyed the experience. So whether you are traveling solo or traveling with a group you will have a great time. There are also lots of activities to do that the school can help you organize.

A great experience.

Habla Ya is really good. The school, the staff and the teaching methods are all great. Especially we are very happy with our teacher Judith Barret. She is very efficient and professional. Also great fun in the classroom. We were lucky to have her as our teacher. I highly recommend this school and teacher!

Leander De Puysseleyr, review hablaya

In september I came to a foreign country, Panama in the hope to master Spanish in one month. With the help of the great teachers of hablaya I realised this goal. I already had a basis of spanish to help me improve quickly. The teachers were amazing and some of them became friends for life. The amazing students who came from all over the world to learn spanish definitely also made my trip the best one that I've done so far.

In short amazing teachers and amazing experience.

With love Leander from Belgium.

How can this program be improved?
The teachers and host families get next to nothing for the work that they do. Their wage should be much higher.

Online Experience

Started with Habla Ya To Really Get a Grasp for Spanish. The Structure Is Very Well Laid Out and Each of The Building Blocks Gave Me A Way of Learning with Limited Frustration for Myself & Hopefully for Sergio. My Work Schedule Can Be Bizarre to Say the Least and Accommodations Were Always Made. Hopefully I Can Block Out A steady Time to Continue. This Is an Excellent Online Program and I would Like to Have a Week or Two in Person. Good Stuff…….
