Spanish Immersion Program - Bocas del Toro, Panama

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

An immersion program is the best way to learn a foreign language. Our program combines daily classes (Monday through Friday) with accommodation in a genuine local family who is ready and willing to share their language and culture with you. Additionally we offer to arrange dozens of school-led activities and eco-adventure tours so that you have a well-rounded Spanish learning vacation in Panama.

The Spanish Immersion Program includes at least 1 week of the Group 4 course, which is a general Spanish course for all levels (beginner to advanced). The more weeks that you sign up for, the greater discount that you receive. It also includes a stay with a local family with two meals per day (most students choose breakfast and dinner).

Students can choose and pay for the activities and eco-tours once they are on-site. The prices range from being free (movie nights, conversational practice, salsa dance lessons) to costing $50 for a full day tour.

Bocas del Toro is a booming destination in Panama and you don't want to miss it! With natural beaches and a true eco-friendly natural vibe, it's no wonder that people all over the world are wanting to check it out. Whether you love wildlife and want to experience everything that the jungle offers, or you want to enjoy the abundant and diverse nightlife in one of the many bars or clubs, Bocas del Toro has just what you are looking for.


The Group 4 classes have no more than 6 students all at your exact same Spanish level. All of our teachers are Panamanian, have college-degrees, and are full time employees at our school. We teach using the Communicative Method, which is based on conversation and activity-based tasks rather than memorization and workbook activities. You will be given an Habla Ya-created book to use during class, which is included in the course fee.

You will have your own private room in the home stay and we do our best to not place multiple students in one host family. The families frequently take students to the beach, visit with other local family and friends, or play games at home. We encourage interaction as much as the student feels comfortable.

Our school is accredited by the Cervantes Institute in Spain. We are a DELE exam preparation and examination center. Many of our host families have worked with our program for over 3 years.
