Signed up for an intensive week long group session. I am not a complete beginner, but not far off. Organisation ahead of lessons was good and timings were easy to organize. Staff very helpful and friendly. This was also true at the school where people couldn't have been nicer. However, the quality of learning was really poor. Working from a... More

At the beginning of my trip of 4 weeks I joined the intense group course, 5 days a week, 4 hours a day. We had a really small group and a teacher that always spoke Spanish during classes and tried to teach us the language in a fun way. After this week I felt my Spanish was really improved and... More

We spent two weeks studying here for four hours a day! What a great way to learn more Spanish! A first rate school that tries its best to accommodate to the needs of the learners. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start as a beginner or improve his/her skills. Thanks to all!

I came to Panama City, Panama, for the express purpose of attending this school to bring up my very rusty high school Spanish to a slightly more workable level. It had been over 50 years since I studied so was a definite mental challenge. David and his staff are all knowledgeable and used to dealing with students with a wide... More

I took the morning beginner Spanish class for 1 week. It was great. Avidel was an excellent teacher. My classmate and I had taken Spanish classes years ago, but we needed a review of the basics. He tailored the class to exactly what we needed and my Spanish definitely improved after only one week. I never got bored and had... More
