Top of the line was my profesora Benita. I felt a bit sad when classes were over. She was very competent, easy going but demanding. The communication with the school was almoust perfect and very quick.
A great place to learn Spanish. I initially only signed up for 1 week but added a second week because I was really enjoying it and learning a lot. Benita is an amazing and patient teacher who knows her stuff. Expensive but worth it.

Hi Macikak. Thanks for your input. Maybe you're not aware but the rates drastically drop for long term programs. Serious learners come to Habla Ya, not only because of the quality, but also because long term rates are lower than most schools in Panama. 20 hours of group lessons goes down to $175 per week for example, which is lower than almost all schools in Panama City, Bocas and Boquete. We've just updated our home stay rates, and actually Habla Ya is priced in the middle in comparison to other schools in Panama. We deliver a high quality immersion experience that delivers results in language learning and local families get good income from it. We actually pay social security for all of our teachers and hire them year round, and because of this we deliver quality but it also means we can't always have big promos and discounts. Right now though, you do get 1 week free if you book 3 weeks or more, and there is a current 15% early bird discount for 2017 courses. Hopefully some of this info will be useful to you.
