Your life in Panama will be so much richer if you can speak and understand the Spanish language (and a lot less frustrating too!).

If you're a NEW PANAMA RESIDENT (or if you've been one for a while but haven't braved up enough to speak with us locals) and want to learn Spanish, you'll get an AUTOMATIC 50% DISCOUNT OFF ANY SPANISH COURSE of 60 hours or more that takes place between AUGUST 15TH and DECEMBER 16TH 2017!

Just make sure to sign up BEFORE THE END OF SEPTEMBER or before we run out of space!


50% off for Panama Residents at Habla Ya August and September 2017


You can take advantage of this promo at any of our Spanish Schools in Panama. If you can't start classes in August or September, you can still take advantage of this promotion by paying for your classes now and then having your lessons before December 16th.

So what are you waiting for? The rainy season is here, grab some cover, socialize, get yourself a deal and learn some Spanish!

Many expat residents who take advantage of our Expat Specials, book our Part Time Spanish Course for Expat Residents in Panama. At only $37.50 per week for a 10 week course (from $750 reduced to $375 - 6 hours of lessons per week) come and grab yourself a bargain...

You can ALSO apply your 50% discount to any of our other Spanish Courses (be it our Group 4 Course, Private Lessons, Online Classes over Skype or a Mini Group).

Ask your expat friends who've studied at our schools and they'll tell you why we're different from the rest. With Habla Ya you will REALLY learn Spanish simply because our teachers have far more experience, academic studies and training (directly from the Instituto Cervantes), preparation and enthusiasm than any other group of Spanish teachers in Panama: they love what they do and they are the best at doing it!


Start dates for our Part Time Spanish Course for Expat Residents for groups of various levels, of no more than six 6 per class, will be on the following Mondays: September 4th, September 11th, September 18th and September 25th. Groups open up with a minimum of 4 students of the same level so don't worry if you contact us now but your group doesn't start until a couple of weeks later. We would like to stress that it's important to save your spot as soon as you can as we normally only open up 1 or 2 groups for each Spanish level and can't guarantee availability for everyone who contacts us... first who comes, first served!

For our Part Time Crash Course for New Residents, classes will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, for two hours each day. Time slots available are: 8 a.m. - 9:50 a.m., 10:10 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m. - 2:50 p.m. and 3:10 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (in Panama City classes start and end an hour later, and we'll also have evening schedules between 6.30 p.m. - 8.20 p.m.). For those starting in late September you might also have to schedule several lessons on Saturdays or other days of the week as your 60 hours might expire before December 16th.

If you don't live in Boquete, Bocas del Toro, or Panama City, but you are a resident of Panama (and you can prove it), then we can also arrange a Spanish learning vacation or a Spanish immersion program for you and you can still have access to the 50% discount of this promotion.

Those interested in our Group 4 Course, Private Lessons or in our Mini-Group option (couples who want a teacher just for themselves) have access to other schedules and can decide to have more or less than 6 hours of lessons per week... though, from our experience you really don't learn that much with less than 6 hours per week (unless you already know some Spanish and you just want to improve your Spanish). If you can't join us for at least 6 hours per week you are better off waiting until you are ready to invest the necessary amount of time... having said that, you'll then have wait until next year if you want to get an offer as good as this one!

Classes at Habla Ya are always highly practical, lots of conversation is involved and you have loads of fun!

"Classes are highly practical, lots of conversation is involved, we get straight on to what you really need in the real world, and last but not least: you will laugh and have loads of fun!"

Besides having Spanish lessons three times a week, we'll make sure that you have the time of your life! At Habla Ya there are loads of extra activities, many of them included in your course fees which allows you to take advantage of them at no extra cost (such as Movie Nights, Conversational Sessions and Salsa Lessons, and the weekly Panamanian Dinners only cost $6 per person). On top of that, every Thursday, several of our staff members will be at some local restaurant enjoying a nice meal and practicing Spanish with our students.

Getting back to the "Academic" side of things, to find out when we have a start date for you (with students of your same level) we need to first find out your Spanish Level as soon as possible!

How? Very easy...

  1. If you don't know any Spanish, just let us know by filling out this form and saying so or by calling us, 757 - 7352 (Bocas del Toro), 720-1294 (Boquete) or 394 - 8326 (Panama City), and tell whoever answers the phone: help, I don't know any Spanish! Make sure to leave your telephone number and email so that we can get back to you as soon as we know on which Monday of August or September will be the Monday for those who don't know any Spanish
  2. If you do know some Spanish, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and complete our Placement Test! Also make sure to leave your telephone number and we'll call you to schedule an oral interview to confirm your Spanish level. After that, once we got a date for you we'll call you and let you know!

Spanish classes for expat residents in Boquete, Panama

To have access to this offer you have to prove your "Panama Residence"

  1. Maybe you already studied at our schools and you want to brush up your Spanish, so we know you live here... just show up! Make sure to pay us a visit as soon as you can. Remember the first group is due to start on August 22nd.
  2. Maybe we've seen you a local restaurant, bar or super market... or at some other place in town: I mean, it's Panama, everyone knows everyone!
  3. If you don't think that you've met anyone from Habla Ya, then think about a way to prove to us that you live here. It could be with a utility bill... be creative if you want to... all that matters is that you convince us that you are a "Panama Resident".


The only "special conditions" are:

  1. You are required to sign up for a minimum of 60 hours (don't waste your money signing up for less... you won't really learn that much and we don't want you to throw your money away!)
  2. You have to use the hours that you purchase before December 16th 2017. If you don't use your hours before December 16th 2017, then we're really sorry, but you've lost them! Our schools are almost already completely booked during the high season starting around Christmas so we won't availability to accommodate discounts after that.
  3. No refunds
  4. No reselling allowed, nor can you transfer your hours to someone else!

To round it up, what do you need to do to not miss out on this opportunity?

  1. prove that you are a Panama Resident
  2. complete our Placement Test, or if you don't know any Spanish just let us know by filling out a contact form or by calling us: 720 - 1294 (Boquete), 757 - 7352 (Bocas del Toro) or 394 - 8326 (Panama City).
  3. pay us a visit or call us to discuss course/schedule options
  4. sign up
  5. make payment

To make it worth (achieve a high Return on Investment) and to become a real "Panama Resident" then you will have to:

  1. show up for all of your lessons
  2. study everyday
  3. practice
  4. practice everyday and study a bit more
  5. and once you've finished your Spanish course, keep practicing!

And after these last 5 steps, you should be speaking Spanish...
