There were many fun things to do and adventures to be had. If you want to have more adventure time I would not recommend doing group and... More

They teach from a set of booklets devised by Habla Ya that include exercises for you to do in class and as homework.... More

Leidys Pitti is a friendly and attentive professor who delivered well-planned and well-paced lessons that ensured maximum comprehension. Her knowledgeable and experienced teaching gave us the confidence to carry conversations solely in Spanish. Her strength lies in her willingness to share Panamanian cultural norms and customs alongside her lessons. Her amiable nature and quick wit made the experience enjoyable and... More

In October 2016 I signed up for 60 hours of private tutoring with Haybla Ya Panama and had a completely awesome experience. My instructor was Ana Irene and she was amazing. I never expected to learn so much so fast; my Panamanian friends continuously compliment me on the improvements of my Spanish during the last few months. I definitely 100%... More
