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 with the option of taking additional private Spanish classes. Students have 4 hours of group Spanish classes each day in the afternoon. There is a maximum of 6 students per class, although the average amount of students in the classroom is usually between 3 and 4. As groups are small, students always receive the personalized attention required to learn Spanish. 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, for the same 4 hours (we won't reduce your amount of hours like other Spanish schools do). Groups are arranged according to students' Spanish levels ensuring that classmates will have a very similar degree of communicative proficiency. If you know some Spanish, even a small amount, you're required to fill out our Online Placement Test before starting your language course. Upon arrival to our Spanish schools in Boquete, Panama City and Bocas del Toro, students also have a short oral interview with one of our teachers to confirm each student's exact Spanish level. In this way student's oral expression and listening comprehension skills are taken into account as well as their reading and writing skills.

Different types of students can benefit from One to One Spanish lessons. On one hand there are those who simply need a private Spanish teacher because of their personal circumstances. This might be the case of those who need to develop specific language skills (medical Spanish, Spanish for business, etc.) in the shortest timeframe possible or the case of those students who will only be in Boquete for a couple of days. There may be other students who because of the way they learn, they simply need to pay more attention to a particular area and require the guidance of a private Spanish tutor. Students who have a more difficult time with their conversational or listening skills could also highly benefit from having private Spanish lessons to effectively learn Spanish. The first advantage of having a Spanish teacher for yourself is obvious: you have the teacher just for you, no one else is in the class! This allows the Spanish class to be exactly what you want and what you need it to be. You can focus on your particular needs without worrying about the needs of other classmates. The environment of a One to One Private Spanish Class in Panama can also help students feel more comfortable and more at ease. It may be the element required to boost their confidence and get the student speaking Spanish as fast as possible.

Flexibility of class schedule

Private lessons can be held in the schedule of your preference as long as teacher availability is determined by the School Director.
If a student is going to miss a private lesson, he should communicate this situation to the School Director with at least 24 hours of anticipation of the Spanish lesson. Otherwise, the student looses those hours of instruction. The best way to do so is through an email to the teacher and School Director or a phone call to the school.
For group lessons, the schedule is arranged by the Administration of the school. This schedule will be set taking into account students needs and teacher and classroom availability.
If students who have group lessons miss a class, they will loose those hours of instruction no matter what.
As a gesture of good manners, civility and politeness, teachers always appreciate if students inform them about their planned/unplanned absences.

The start dates of intensive and standard language courses are generally flexible. If you have some basic knowledge of the language, you will be able to start any Monday of the year at almost any school. If you are a total beginner, courses usually start once or twice a month.
You should be aware that language schools have more students in July and August than during any other time of year, which means that course fees, housing prices and the overall cost of living are often more expensive during this time. If you would like to book a course in July or August, you should do so very early: schools have limited spots and might be booked well in advance for the high season. Your chances to get your preferred housing type are also greater if you book your course early. Housing options near the school are especially difficult to secure in the summer and tend to fill up quickly.
Language courses during the low season (September to June) are not only less expensive, but also have smaller classes. If you are able to wait to take your courses during this time you will pay less for your courses, and  you may even receive better housing, since demand is much lower. Please, review this information within the language course details on the language school page.
 You can find the availability status underneath each price on the school / host page. Nevertheless, if you submit a reservation request and your place is not available, the deposit paid will be 100% refunded.
