I spent 8 wonderful weeks with Habla Ya. Before even arriving I was impressed with the organization and customer service. Once I arrived in Bocas, from start to finish ever experience was fantastic and better than I could have imagined.
Everyone in reception (including Sarah, Dominique, Alec and Cesar) was welcoming, helpful, available, and accommodating! They addressed any questions I had, helped to facilitate any activity I wanted to so and generally were pretty much amazing--from biking riding along the beach, to yoga, to sailing trips and group dinners.
I started from zero and learned far more Spanish than I thought I would in just 8 weeks. The classes were completely stress free, but the teachers also encouraged me to push myself to learn. I can't believe how much I enjoyed learning Spanish. Throughout 8 weeks I took 4 hours of group class and 2 hours of private class, so I ended up having a variety of teachers. Each teacher I had was great and had his/her own unique teaching style and strengthes. I was incredibly impressed with the level of professionalism amongst the Habla Ya teachers, Adriana, Iveth, Christopher, Omaris, Stephanie, Itsy were all fantastic teachers, as well as all of the teachers I had here and there as "substitutes." The classes are well organized and the teachers communicate with each other to ensure that if a class has to be covered the teacher can pick up where the other one left off. The classes are also flexible to focus on what are my weaknesses and interests, in particular I found the mix of group and private classes to be very useful.
I can't say enough great things about Habla Ya and my experience in Bocas! Bocas itself is a great place to learn spanish, relax and also enjoy yourself. Above and beyond that, I can't imagine finding a more professional, well organized and enjoyable language school than Habla Ya! Thank you to every single person at Habla Ya who contributed an unforgettable 8 weeks!
