Group 4 is the most popular Spanish course offered at Habla Ya Panama Spanish Schools and is comprised of 20 hours of group Spanish lessons per week with the option of taking additional private Spanish classes. Students have 4 hours of group Spanish classes each day either in the morning or in the afternoon.Max of 6 Students of the Same Level p/Class
There is a maximum of 6 students per class, although the average amount of students in the classroom is usually between 3 and 4. As groups are small, students always receive the personalized attention required to learn Spanish.
Even though it's unlikely to happen, if there isn't another student of your exact same level and you have signed up to have group lessons, it doesn't matter: you'll have the teacher all for yourself, for the same 4 hours (we won't reduce your amount of hours like other Spanish schools do). If for any reason you would like to limit your class size to two or three students (couples or groups of friends traveling together), you can sign up for Mini Group lessons.
Groups are arranged according to students' Spanish levels ensuring that classmates will have a very similar degree of communicative proficiency. If you know some Spanish, even a small amount, you're required to fill out our Online Placement Test before starting your language course. Upon arrival to our Spanish schools in Boquete, Panama City and Bocas del Toro, students also have a short oral interview with one of our teachers to confirm each student's exact Spanish level. In this way student's oral expression and listening comprehension skills are taken into account as well as their reading and writing skills.
