Our Spanish school has ten classrooms named after well-known Latin American writers. There is also a cafeteria and a chill-out area where you can relax during breaks, enjoy Boquetes´ world-famous coffee or meet with other students.

The Boquete Valley is located in the western highlands of Panama, approximately 1000 meters above sea level. The peaceful little town is nestled into a mountainous region, between the Caldera river and the Baru volcano. Boquete is THE place for outdoor tourism in Panama and is also known worldwide for its exquisite coffee.
Boquete has a sunny and refreshing mountain climate, almost perfect, with temperatures ranging between 16 and 28 ° Celsius all year round.
The valley is surrounded by pristine tropical rainforest and just an hour from beautiful white sandy beaches on the Pacific. Just as easy to reach in three hours by car is "Bocas del Toro", a region on the Caribbean Sea that offers a variety of water sports such as scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing.
The valley of Boquete is the perfect place to take Spanish classes during the week in a beautiful mountain region with spring-like temperatures and on weekends go on excursions to the sunny, sandy beaches or to the mountains.
Boquete has about 20,000 residents who are known for their friendliness. Their cultural roots go back to indigenous peoples, Spaniards, other Europeans and North Americans. The first settlers in the region came from other areas of Panama as well as from Switzerland, Germany and North America. All of these nations formed the small melting pot of today's Boquete. Many farms and houses still evoke memories of these cultures. The Ngöbe Bugles, an indigenous people of highly skilled artisans live in the mountains surrounding the valley. They are known for their colorful "chaquiras" (beaded necklaces) and "nahuas" (traditional clothing)
All Spanish teachers at our school have many years of experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. They take part in internal training sessions to learn about the latest teaching methods. Further meetings take place once a week to talk about student development and learning progress. All lessons are completely in Spanish, so students quickly adapt to the pronunciation and have to listen carefully.
On the first day of school there will be a placement test to determine your language skills. It is used to assign you to a group with an according level. There are 6 levels of difficulty (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) according to the CEFR (Common European Framework of References for Languages).
