Being able to communicate in Spanish will open many doors for your children. And learning it with an experienced native Spanish teacher makes it a lot easier and enjoyable!
For children 12 and under we offer both group and private Spanish lessons: it's your choice! When placed in a group, your son or daughter will only have classmates of a similar age and Spanish level (maximum 6 students per class but the average is around 3 to 4). In private lessons, your child will have his or her own private Spanish tutor.
Group lessons are mostly available during the summer holidays (June, July, August) and during Panama's high season (January, February and March), when families on vacation come to our Spanish Schools in Bocas del Toro, Boquete and Panama City, Panama. During the rest of the year, private lessons are offered, and groups are only available when siblings can be placed together with the same Spanish teacher or when other children of a similar age and level are joining us for the same dates.
If you would prefer to limit the size of your children, a mini group is also an option. Feel free to contact us about group availability for your child.
Children are special students and must also be taught in a special way. For this reason, children have a privileged place in our schools and we take into very careful consideration how we give classes to them. We make sure their classes are dynamic, to keep them interested in learning a new language, and at the same time educational, to make sure that they really get the most out of each hour of class.
We know that you want them to have a head start in life by giving them the opportunity to speak Spanish. We will not only fulfill each parent's expectations but we will also bring out the best of each child: your treasure becomes our treasure each time he or she comes into the classroom.
We also help families plan their Family Language Vacation Program so that everyone can have Spanish lessons at our Spanish schools in Boquete, Bocas del Toro and/or Panama City. We will help your family make the most out of your time in Panama helping you organize and plan what to do during the weekends and after classes.
Habla Ya's team of qualified teachers have plenty of experience teaching children. Besides Spanish lessons, our teachers will play games with them that will also help them with their language skills, like bingo and monopoly. Kids can get bored inside a classroom so our teachers also take them to local gardens like El Explorador, Mi Jardín es tu Jardín and Finca Los Monos. These teachers are specialists at making the learning environment a pleasant one in which each student can feel comfortable and develop their capacity. Other than this, we have extracurricular activities such as strolls around town, where students can put into practice what they've learnt in class.
If you and your family have just moved to Panama and would like to make the transition for your kids as easy as possible, we would be more than happy to arrange a Spanish course for them to get them speaking Spanish, making new friends and performing well at school as soon as possible. Moving to a new country is hard enough... help them learn Spanish!
For those of you who have relocated to Panama City, Boquete or Bocas del Toro, and are looking for a good excuse to have their grandchildren visit during their summer vacations what a better idea than to arrange a summer language program for them that combines Spanish lessons and plenty of Eco-Adventure Tours!
