What you'll do
We’ll meet at Casco Antiguo Spanish School in the heart of the old city where you’ll meet your teacher for a mix of hands-on interactive activities, and real life practice with locals in the street. You will learn practical language skills that will go long way in making your trip easier, communicate with the locals, and explore places you might not get to otherwise. The course is designed for complete beginners and those with a basic level of Spanish, and gives participants the Spanish vocabulary and key phrases they need to survive and get the most out of their time in Panama or other Spanish speaking countries. It focuses on the following topics: Eating / Drinking: communicating in restaurants, bars and cafes, from basic greetings, how to read a menu and order food, to expressing special dietary needs, and making complaints. Shopping: buying things in a variety of different situations, from clothing stores to supermarkets and kiosks. Traveling: Go over topics such as how to buy tickets, get directions, book accommodation. If you’re the only person in your class it can be tailored to your goals and language level to focus on the things most important to you.
