LANGUAGE STAY IN Panama
“Don Quichotte” in partnership with Habla Ya Spanish Schools, invites you to study Spanish at the 3 most exciting tourist destinations of Panama: Boquete in the mountains, Bocas del Toro in the Caribbean, and/or Panama City, the vibrant capital of Panama. Locations can be combined, or you can simply stay at the destination of your choice during your entire stay.
Habla Ya Boquete and Bocas del Toro are Instituto Cervantes accredited schools guaranteeing the highest quality of teaching, as well as an official DELE examination center at all 3 locations.
Habla Ya Spanish Schools offers a wide range of courses complemented by extra-curricular activities and eco-tours, as well as a wide range of volunteer projects.
Habla Ya Bocas del Toro is located on Isla Colón, on the main island of the archipelago, in the center of Bocas Town. The Bocas del Toro Archipelago is a group of 7 major islands and more than 250 cays and islets, and has everything you could possibly dream of: postcard perfect white and golden sand beaches, coconut trees, turquoise waters ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling, treasured with abundant sea-life including dolphins, sea turtles, tropical fish and manatees, as well as a thick tropical rainforest with sloths, howler monkeys and more. Bocas del Toro is famous among the surfer community, and possesses world class surf breaks for professionals, as well as smaller waves for beginners who are just learning the ropes. Its relaxed island vibe, exciting nightlife and friendly local population make Bocas del Toro the number 1 tourist destination in Panama.
Habla Ya Boquete is conveniently located in the heart of Boquete, only a block from the town’s main square and Central Park. The valley of Boquete is located in the western highlands of Panama at 1,200 meters above sea level in the lush province of Chiriqui.
Boquete is Panama’s eco-adventure capital for all ages, and offers numerous hiking trails in our National Parks, whitewater rafting, zip-lining tours, rock climbing, birdwatching, coffee tours, relaxing hot springs, scenic horseback riding and so much more… the possibilities are endless.
Habla Ya Panama City is located in the El Carmen neighborhood, which provides plenty of home stays and green areas within walking distance to the school, close to a large variety of restaurants, shops, bars, casinos, gyms, and hotels. This cosmopolitan and trendy city welcomes people from every single part of the world, with a diversity of cultures, which certainly makes for a unique experience when visiting Central America’s most modern city.
Panama City has all the amenities of an international city, and its main attractions are the colonial neighborhood (Casco Viejo), its modern skyline bordered by the Panama Canal, the Pacific Ocean and dense tropical rainforest, a sophisticated nightlife and world class shopping with brands from all over the globe.
The standard course consists of 20 group lessons per week with a maximum of 6 students per classroom from Monday to Friday, with the possibility to add one or 2 hours of private lessons per day.
Private lessons are offered to those who prefer to have their teacher completely to themselves, or to focus on specific topics such as Medical Spanish, Spanish for Business, Legal Spanish, Spanish for Kids, the DELE Preparation course (all levels) or any other area of specialty. Courses are available for all levels (minimum stay one week). You can begin any Monday of the year, and our students are of all ages!
Classes are complemented with daily extracurricular activities, such as Panamanian dinners, Yoga lessons, movie nights, Salsa and Merengue lessons, conversational sessions, museum visits, nightlife exploration, and more.
The school can also arrange accommodation at host families, or at a hotel or hostel according to our students’ preference and budget. Habla Ya works with carefully selected host families that will welcome each student as if they were another daughter or son. The school also partners with hotels of all categories: budget hostels, mid-range hotels and luxury hotels at walking distance or a short subway ride (in Panama City) from each campus.
