The Importance of Legal Spanish
Spanish course for lawyers at Habla Ya Panama

As Spanish speakers continue to move to the United States, Canada and other parts of the world, it's becoming a definite competitive advantage if you can speak their native language. This is especially noticable in professional settings. In order to be able to reach out to this new market, no matter at which level or area of law you work in, it's extremely advantageous if you can effectively ommunicate with a Spanish-speaking client in their very own language and establish the rapport required to gain their trust.

In the world of law, it's a golden rule that clients want a lawyer who they can trust and who will get the job done. The first line of trust comes from understanding one another, so why not take a course in Legal Spanish to give you the extra edge above other lawyers? If you know anything about Latino culture, you'll know how this can give you the edge in many situations.

Course Structure

Legal Spanish class at Habla Ya Panama
Course Length & Proficiency Requirements

If you're a beginner or don't know any Spanish, we will help you work on your general Spanish skills and at the same time we will introduce legal Spanish into your lessons according to the progress you're making, mainly with your conversational skills.

In order to focus on only legal Spanish, it's preferable that your current Spanish level is B1 or above. This way you have a good conversational foundation and can then add specific legal vocabulary, phrases and verbs to your knowledge.

Upon request students can shadow a lawyer in Boquete, Panama City or Bocas del Toro, Panama throughout his or her day of work, and assist an attorney with his or her daily responsibilities. The cost for this service is $25 per hour.

Another option is to join our Group 4 PLUS 1/2 Course. This is a great option (independently of your current Spanish level), if you would also like to work on your general Spanish skills and easily meet and interact with other students at our Spanish schools. In this way you'll have 4 hours of group lessons to work on your general Spanish skills, and then 1 or 2 extra hours or private lessons each day to work on your Legal Spanish.

If you don't know any Spanish, in order to fully benefit from our Legal Spanish Courses, it can take you from 6 to 9 weeks of Spanish lessons to reach our lower intermediate level of Spanish, B1 (if you would like to speed up the process, you can consider joining our Spanish Immersion Program by also living with a local host family while studying Spanish at our schools). If you're not sure about your current Spanish level, please complete our Online Placement Test (upon arrival we will also interview to assess your conversational skills) and we'll get back to you and let you know where exactly you're at.

At Habla Ya we know it's not easy to pay for something that you haven't seen, in a far distant country, miles and miles away, so you can save your spot with just a $99 deposit and PAY THE REST UPON ARRIVAL! After you Sign Up & Register!, we'll confirm your booking details via email and send you a secure link to reserve your spot. Your $99 deposit will count towards tuition - Spanish lessons, or in case of "no-show" or cancellation within 1 week of start date, will be considered a cancellation fee. Just as most small businesses, we're greatly impacted by last minute cancellations, as it's difficult to assign your spot to someone else, so please let us know asap if your plans change and we'll reimburse your $99 if you let us know with at least 7 days in advance of your start date.
