Un mes en el paraíso

Estaba 4 semanas en Bocas del Toro en HablaYa y nunca voy a olvidar eso tiempo. Me quede en una familia y tome el curso del grupo y una hora de clase privada.

Me quede en la familie Ortiz. La madre Maribel es muuuy amable y simpatico. Me sentia como si fuera su hija. Ella cocino todos los dias comida muy rica. Ella siempre estaba bailando y cantando y por eso teniamos siempre mucho para reirse en la casa.

Yo tenia la suerte de tener clase con la prima de Maribel, Benita Georget. Ella es una profesora muy amable. La clase siempre era divertido y todos los días me alegre de ir a la escuela. En la clase aprendí mucho. Como yo estaba en un nivel bastante alto, hemos hecho muchos análisis y conversaciones. Mi hora de clase privada también tenia con Benita. Siempre hablábamos mucho y si tuve una pregunta ella trato de explicarme con mucho paciencia.

Pero no solo en la escuela nos vimos. Los profesores tambien salieron con los estudiantes. Pasábamos nuestro tiempo libre juntos y por eso podia hacer amistades muy buenas. En Bocas del Toro se puede haver muchos cosas. Tiene muchos actividades organizada de la escuela y todos las playas son increíbles.

Entonces, aconsejaría a todos de venir a Bocas y pasar un tiempo increíble.

3 weeks in Bocas

I highly recommend Bocas if you are interested in Learning Spanish and living in paradise. The views are exceptional and they have a great night life. I was lucky enough to live with any amazing group of people (including an amazing house mother - Maribel) and have Benita as my teacher. You have to make sure you study because it's hard to concentrate with so much other fun things going on! I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

A time well spent

I was at the campus in Bocas del Toro for four weeks and took group lessons there.
The staff is super nice and competent, group sizes are comfortably small.
The group activities organized by the school were always fun, it is almost like a family feeling with the other students.
I want to specifically thank and recommend Eliana as a teacher, as she is a natural at teaching and motivating her students. By her lovable and cheerful nature she makes time fly as you learn more and more while having a great time.

Eli is the best

I had zero experience studying a second language going into the class but my profesora Eli made the class fun and relaxed. She was always super helpful and patient if you didn't quite get something the first time around. The activities the school organizes are always fun, particularly volleyball on the beach at sunset. I would also highly reccomend Chapo my surf instructor at the surf school mono loco. Habla ya also set that up for me and it was fantastic. Chapo, like Eli, made learning something difficult seem fun.

4 weeks of learning Spanish at Habla Ya (3 weeks in Bocas and 1 in Boquete)

I have learned 4 weeks Spanish at Habla Ya in May/ June 2017 (3 weeks in Bocas and 1 in Boquete). I have really enjoyed learning Spanish and got to the basic conversational level. The course is well structured, the facilities are good and the teachers are well motivated. Personally, I liked Bocas more as the atmosphere is more laid-back, there were more students and the school feels more like a home. All teachers are good, and it was advantageous that Eduardo speaks English. He could explain me in detail why I said something wrong and not only say the correct thing in Spanish. He has a profound knowledge of Spanish. Also, he is a nice person to have a small talk with. Overall, it was a great experience!
