Learn Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere in the colonial city of Leon, in tropical Nicaragua. Visit the most authentic and safest country in Central America.
Why learn Spanish in Nicaragua?
• Nicaragua has a tropical climate and especially the European and North American winter is
the perfect time to visit the country. It is a very authentic travel destination yet not
influenced by the mass tourism.
• Nicaragua is also much safer than its northern neighbors up to the U.S. border. Normally,
you can spend a very relaxing holiday without having fear to be raided and robbed.
• Nicaragua is extremely varied. If you want to see and experience the country outside your
language course, you have here a very wide range of destinations that can be reached
relatively quickly. There is a very good infrastructure of good roads, bus- and even boat- or
ferry-connections. And all at very reasonable prices. Just have a look at our Photo Gallery.
• The population of Nicaragua is very open and always helps foreigners, even if you speak
the language (yet) not so good. Also love the "Nicas" (as they call themselves) to
celebrate, to dance and sing. Pure pleasure.

We are located in the university city of León, the "cultural capital" of Nicaragua.
León is a colonial city, built in old spanish colonial style.
The city is located approx. 90 km (55 miles) northeast from the capital Managua and aprox.
20 km (12 miles) from the pacific ocean with its beautiful sandy beaches Poneloya and Las Penitas and is surrounded by many, in parts active, volcanoes.
Here in León we take personal care of you, no anonymous booking without personal contacts in Nicaragua.
We work with local Spanish teachers who have many years of experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
Should you be short in time, we also offer the possibility of a Spanish crash course that will focus on the most important issues to fully appreciate your vacation or stay in Nicaragua; you will learn the most important expressions and sufficient vocabulary to hold a conversation.
We are always there for you, should you have questions or any kind of problems.
