Habla Hispana is an excellent place to learn Spanish whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student. Classes are small. My intermediate class had four students. Our maistra was Theresa. It doesn’t get any better than that. Her explanations were crystal clear. She made...More
Honestly, this is the only Spanish school I’ve ever attended BUT I still call it “la mejor” (the best) because of my fabulous experiences. I’ve come twice now and would love to return again. The first time was with my daughter in 2010 for seven...More
I only got to study here for a week but learned a LOT! Wish I could have participated in the afternoon/evening events(sightseeing, cooking, music) but I was traveling with a non-student so was unable. The teachers were such kind women, and so patient. Students were...More
I was very pleased with my 4 week Spanish learning experience at Habla Hispana. The school provides for a warm, family, community feel. The administration was flexible, helpful, and understanding. Their intention is for you to learn and have fun, all the while feeling comfortable....More
I just spent 2 weeks at the school and really enjoyed myself. I stayed onsite, my room was private, huge, and had great internet. Large shared living room and kitchen. Classes weekdays 9am-1pm. First was grammar, small break, conversation, lastly vocabulary. MWF there are other...More
The 3 hour per day program at Habla Hispana has one hour of grammar and two hours of conversation. The grammar instructor Theresa was good and very pleasant. Then for the 2 hour portion of conversation, you never know who you're going to get. One...More
There are several different schools and methods of instruction available in San Miguel. I think this one is most productive- not too academic and not to "just learn to get by". An hour and a half of grammar, hour of conversation and an hour of...More
OK, this may seem a bit strange to some, but I hope it is helpful. I first took a month long introductory course, during a summer break from teaching high school at least 15 years ago! My late wife and I rented an apartment, went...More
I spent a month at the school last year and next year hope to spend another month there but live in with a family nearby. It was a wonderful experience - not only did it include lessons (entirely in Spanish) but a cooking class and...More
I’m not sure if my answer is too late but .... Yes. Homestay is an option. You tell Habla Hispana your dietary restrictions and they pass it on to the family. And I recommend reiterating it to the family. I stayed with... More
I’m not sure if my answer is too late but .... Yes. Homestay is an option. You tell Habla Hispana your dietary restrictions and they pass it on to the family. And I recommend reiterating it to the family. I stayed with Marina and Ernesto. They are very accustomed to meeting dietary needs. I imagine the rest of the families are as well.
If you do a family stay at the Lopez Flores house, 3 blocks from the school, you will be so well fed you will not want or need to eat out! However, if you want to have a fun larger gathering or enjoy a beer outside in a beer... More
If you do a family stay at the Lopez Flores house, 3 blocks from the school, you will be so well fed you will not want or need to eat out! However, if you want to have a fun larger gathering or enjoy a beer outside in a beer garden with music, I recommend Mio Bistrock, about 1/4 mile from the school. Open 1:30 to 9:30 Thursday through Sunday. I also enjoyed Cafe Buen Dia on Del Pueblo about 3 blocks form the school - great coffee and delicious food.
