Study Spanish in Comfort
Bocas del Toro is a tropical island and needless to say, despite the fresh Caribbean breeze from the sea, it will get hot and humid (click here for more information about Bocas del Toro's weather). As we strive for academic excellence we are aware that when you're studying Spanish you require to be in a comfortable, stress free and adequate environment. Each of the classrooms at our Spanish school in Bocas del Toro is air-conditioned and thus we ensure that the heat and the sweat stay out of your Spanish lessons and we provide you with a nice temperature so that your brain can function. And for those days when it's not too hot, we also have fans in each classroom so that we don't have to use the air conditioning unnecessarily.
Each classroom is adequately illuminated and properly ventilated each day to facilitate student's concentration for longer periods of time. Tables and chairs are ergonomically designed to ensure everyone's comfort and the furniture is laid out to allow maximum interaction between the students and their teacher. The whiteboard can be easily read by everyone in the classroom. Did we mention that groups are always small with never more than 6 students (average 3 - 4) ensuring that you received the personalized attention required to learn the langauage?
Each classroom at Habla Ya Bocas del Toro Spanish School can comfortably fit 6 Spanish students plus your Spanish teacher (in reality there is space for more but we limit groups to 6 per class) and is named after a famous Panamanian, Spanish or Latin American writer: Cervantes, Neruda, Mistral, Vargas Llosa, Borges, Quevedo, Miró and Cohelo.
Besides having classes at our Spanish school, we take our students on strolls to Bocas del Toro's streets and neighborhoods to make sure you get to practice your Spanish in real life situations, or we just walk by the beach. During these strolls our language students learn many nouns and adjectives, practice the topics that they've been studying in class and get a chance to enjoy the fresh air. Students in our Group 4 course go on 2 hour strolls every Friday and those of our Crash Course for New Residents go once every 2 weeks. Depending on the group and on the student's level, strolls may take place more than once a week.
