“lovely school and great homestay family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

In November 2012 we spent one week in Granada - having spanish lessons and living next door to Casa Nica with a very friendly Nicaraguan familiy.
Overall we had a great and intensive time. We choosed 1-1 lessons, so our teachers instructed us indivdually and we learned a lot: the language, customs and nicaraguan history. Their instructions really fitted to our personal interests and abilities.
Furthermore, the school offered additional afternoon excursions. Together with one or two of the teachers we discovered Granada and the surrounding area. Within this acitivities, they spoke as much Spanish as possible for our level of understanding Spanish. Thus we were "forced" to speak and hear Spanish the whole day, starting with the breakfast with our very hospitable familiy...

“Casa Nica is the place to learn spanish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

The learning experience was very educational. I studied with Vanesa Mercado who is not a college student and she helped me to get the most out of the lessons. Its was amazing that she knew exactly where to begin in my instruction. I stayed at the school and the accommodations also met my needs. The teachers are also kind and caring when it comes to any additional assistance. I wouldn't hesitate to attend the school again. it was worth every penny!

“Learn or play”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

The instructors know nothing about teaching. They are just college students working part time. They do not offer any kind of structure for learning.
