Official Description (Provided by language school)
Viva Spanish School in Managua, Nicaragua has been teaching Spanish language classes since 2004. We have ten experienced Nicaraguan teachers and our students come from many countries including England, Scotland, USA, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Sweden, Korea and Japan.
Viva Spanish School is conveniently located in the heart of Managua. The school is in a typical residential neighborhood close to shopping, banking, public transportation and a variety of restaurants. In early 2013 the school building was renovated and several air conditioned classrooms were added to meet the ever increasing demand for Spanish language classes in Managua. We now have 10 classrooms and a comfortable student/teacher lounge with free coffee, bottled water and Wifi.
Most of our classes are one-on-one (one student/one teacher), so that the course content can be customized to meet the individual needs and goals of each student. We also offer small group classes upon request. Full immersion programs are available and quite popular with students who want to practice their Spanish both in and out of the classroom. Our full immersion programs typically include Spanish language classes, a homestay with a local Nicaraguan family within walking distance of the school and a menu of cultural activities, excursions and/or volunteering opportunities.
Our mission at Viva Spanish School is to provide high quality Spanish language training in an academic environment that is conducive to learning. We provide pre-placement testing to accurately assess each student's level proficiency. We assure our students that they will leave Viva Spanish School with a better knowledge and fluency level than when they arrive.
Our teachers are either college graduates or are in their final years of study in their field. All of our staff has a passion for teaching and are dedicated to their jobs. Viva Spanish School is also committed to providing a healthy work environment for our staff. Our staff is paid salaries about 50% higher than most employees doing the same work in Nicaragua and they enjoy a positive and creative work environment.
On behalf of all of the staff, teachers and owners of Viva Spanish School, we would like to welcome our students and let you know that we are ready to help you improve your Spanish language skills, and to provide you with the tools you will need to learn and have fun while doing it!
