I studied in at HablaYa in Bocas del Toro for two weeks before going to Boquete and I was a little nervous that I would be bored after such a lively little beach town. However, the teachers in Bocas encouraged me to spend two full weeks in Boquete rather than more time in Bocas. I didn't feel that I was... More

I recently finished two weeks at Habla Ya in Boquete and they did great. I did two private hours per day. Edwardo was my main instructor and he was excellent. The facilities were very good as was the location. They even gave me additional replacement time because I was sick a couple of days. Outstanding customer service. They have other... More

I was an Habla Ya student for 6 weeks in March and April 2017. My experience was excellent right from the beginning, when I was working with the Habla Ya team while I was abroad to make sure that my classes as well as my staying with a host family (including 2 meals each day) were taken care of. I... More

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... More

I had the privilege of taking Spanish with Leidys for a month 2-3 times per week. She was professional and always came to class with a positive attitude. Leidys speaks very clearly and slowly. She is very knowledgable about construction and grammer. Since the class was private we were able to converse for the majority of the time. It was... More

I studied at Habla Ya for nine weeks (January 2017 to March 2017), two of which were in Boquete (the other seven weeks I spent in Bocas and Panama City). I did not know any Spanish when I started, other than some very basic vocabulary, so I started in A1. By the end of nine weeks, I was in B2.... More

I spent about two months at the Panama City campus, and I can say the only regret I have is that I could not stay in Panama longer. The experience is one I will never forget. The lesson plan and methodology is well executed and the teachers are very professional and organized. I opted for a combination of private lessons... More

HablaYa is a great school. I've taken in Bocas and here in Boquete. I've had 5 different teachers. Every one of them has been excellent. I highly recommend all of the 3 locations!

I just returned from my fifth trip to Boquete and each time I studied at Hablaya. I've always been pleased with the quality of the teaching staff. I am a language teacher myself so I'm picky! I recently had Leidys as a teacher and highly recommend her. The previous year I had Juval who was also very good.
