In October 2016 I signed up for 60 hours of private tutoring with Haybla Ya Panama and had a completely awesome experience. My instructor was Ana Irene and she was amazing. I never expected to learn so much so fast; my Panamanian friends continuously compliment me on the improvements of my Spanish during the last few months. I definitely 100%... More

I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months through Habla Ya. I did have some basic knowledge of Spanish at the time. My teacher, Leidys, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to... More

I have taken over 180 hours of Spanish classes in Habla Ya, an example of the proof being in the pudding. I wouldn’t return if I wasn’t pleased! But it goes deeper than that, ultimately it is the quality of the Profesora that determines the quality of the experience. I took part of Level A2 and levels B1 and B2... More

Studying Spanish in Boquete was fabulous. My teacher, Yubal, is an absolute delight! I had actual taken several weeks of classes with him online via Skype and was SO excited when I was assigned to his class when I went Boquete and could meet him in person. I love that he uses a lot of different teaching tools so that... More

I've spent the last three weeks in Boquete, studying Spanish at the Habla Ya School. The climate is extremely temperate with a constant temperature of 70ºF and occasional showers in the afternoon. The school itself is wonderful and a perfect place to immerse oneself in Hispanic culture and language. My teacher, Leidys, was extremely kind and accommodating. She adapted the... More
