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…….
