Group 4 Spanish Course

Habla Ya Panama City


Course description

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. Students have 4 hours of group Spanish classes each day. General Spanish, suitable for all ages and all levels and focuses on communication skills.

There is a maximum of 6 students per class, although the average amount of students in the classroom is usually between 3 and 4. 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! As groups are small, students always receive the personalized attention required to learn Spanish.

Groups are arranged according to students' Spanish levels ensuring that classmates will have a very similar degree of communicative proficiency.

"Private Lessons are my favorite"

Weiping Yin, student from USA

My favorite instructor is the one from my private lesson. She speaks Spanish legato without heavy accent. She identifies my weakness and works with me in every step, by writing the word on board, repeated exercise and giving me home work.

I would not recommend the group lesson. the instructor has a heavy accent, speaking Spanish staccato like she were fighting and arguing angrily. She speaks very fast.

Our host families are middle class by local standards. A typical house will have a living room/dining room, a kitchen and bathroom and 3 or 4 bedrooms. There is often a yard outside which people use as an extension of the house. As there are so many different types of host families we ask our students to fill out an Immersion Pre-Program Interview that will help us select the best family for them. We will do our best to choose the family that you are looking for. Most houses are rather humble, and luxury should not be expected, but they are comfortable, safe and clean!

Most families are located within walking distance to our Spanish Schools (10 - 30 minute walk) or a short subway or bus ride away

Each Spanish language immersion student will be given a private room and study area. Each bedroom is clean, well ventilated and illuminated.
