Habla Ya Spanish Schools' mission is to offer the most amazing Spanish learning experience, and all of the staff is commited to exceed your expectations and make that happen.
Habla Ya Spanish School commits itself to provide Spanish lessons with a qualified teacher in the one to one private option, in our mini group option, in a group of no more than six students or through online Spanish lessons according to the course that has been negotiated for the student in the moment of inscription. We offer different Spanish courses to suit student's different needs. These general conditions apply as long as no other special program is arranged for the student or group of students.
Proper accommodation (home stays, budget hostels, mid-range hotels or bed & breakfasts, luxury country inns or top end resorts, cabins or apartment rentals) at an extra charge will be offered and can be arranged if students wish so. Habla Ya Spanish School will always try, within sensible limits, to meet student's needs concerning accommodation and we strive to provide comfortable accommodation so that students can feel cozy, secure, but we are not a real estate agent and cannot respond for the actions (or lack of those) of other businesses. Each host family, hostel, hotel, bed & breakfast and apartment is approved and overseen by us, but not owned by us, so we cannot completely control them and we will always do everything that we can so that you receive the level of service that you deserve. The quality is monitored by regular visits, phone calls and student feedback. We will make sure that the refund policy that each lodging option has commited to is followed.
Certain free extra activities (weekly salsa lessons, movie nights and conversational sessions) are also included with the course payment which have to be scheduled and are subject to change. Other extra activities are offered at an extra cost.
Eco-adventure tours can be cancelled up to one week in advance without incurring in any penalty. If they are cancelled within a week, a 50% penalty will be charged. If cancelled within 24 hours, a 100% penalty will be applied.
Habla Ya Panama Spanish School is only obliged to give classes during the negotiated time and the classes paid in advance by the student at the beginning of the course. However, if the student wishes to extend his/her courses, he/she has to communicate his/her decision to the School Director, who will inform of course options available and finally has to pay for the additional time in advance.
Habla Ya Spanish School commits itself to hand over a certificate of approval, only for those students that contract and pay for a course with a minimum of 60 hours and successfully course those 60 hours improving their language skills in the degree they are marked by our level system. The Spanish School will not give certificates to any students that sign up and pay weekly. However, the Language School will hand over a private certificate in which it states the number of received hours in Spanish and the level of proficiency reached. In th past, many students have used this certificate to gain college credit but the course is generally approved by their college before arrival.
The timetable of the studies will be an arrangement of the existing shares and our teachers commit to the agreed schedule. However, this could change in mutual agreement, if the conditions for this exist and whenever the normal development of the Spanish school is not prejudiced.
