Itinerary

Spanish in Boquete - Intensive Group

Welcome Meet & Greet

Start of the program: Sunday at 17:00 Placement Test & 18:00 Welcome Talk. Complete beginner students don’t need to come for the Placement Test and can show up at 18:00 instead.

To welcome our new students and to kick off their first week, an Introduction is held every Sunday night. Our language program includes a social, educational and fun activity program during weekdays. This way the students not only learn Spanish, but also get offered activities such as Latin dance classes, movie night, free kayak use, zumba, yoga and happy hour drinks during our traditional Friday night barbecue (students bring food from different countries to share) are examples of the activities that can be included. The program varies per location and can vary per week. The school will be informing the students about the weekly offer. The best part is that it is all included in the course price. Every week during the introduction talk, the school manager will present the free activity program which we welcome the students to participate in

Intensive Group Spanish Classes

Intensive Group Spanish classes include 6 hours of lessons a day from Monday to Friday. The hours are from 8:00 till 12:00 with a break from 9:50 till 10:10, and again from either 15:00 - 17:00 or 17:00 till 19:00 (in mutual agreement locally). When there is only one student at this level, you receive 3 hours of private lessons at the same price

Each room can be shared by up to 2 students, but you if you don’t mind paying a little more you can have your own private room. There is also one private room with a private bathroom. A kitchen is available to everybody staying in the hostel. There is Cable TV at the school, so lots of movies, music and information in Spanish (and English) is available. We also offer a continental breakfast in the morning for USD4 (to be paid locally).

Local Homestay
Our homestay in Boquete, Panama gives you the opportunity to live with a host family. Living with a local family is a unique experience that will provide you with the opportunity to not only learn the language but also explore the culture. Our host families have been carefully selected. The rooms are private and have shared bathrooms. Home stays include breakfast and laundry but if you pay a bit more you can get dinner and lunch included as well. Food is typical Panamanian, nevertheless most families can adapt a little upon request (e.g. considering people’s diets). If you don’t use our pick-up service, you need to call the school to let us know at what time you will arrive in Boquete so your host family can welcome you at the school or at the bus station.
