in Rome, do as the Romans. That old saying suggests becoming
similar to those whose land you inhabit and doing the same things.
The same can be said for language, and the need to know the
language of the land where you live. If you live in, or are
planning to live in Panama, “doing as the Romans”
is really quite easy. There are a wide variety of Spanish language
schools in Panama and learning Spanish is much easier than you
While Latin American countries such as Mexico and Costa Rica
garner much of the attention when it comes to Spanish language
schools, Panama is increasing in prominence. This is due,
in part, to Panama’s growing stature in the business
world, as well as its growing population of retirees and expatriates.
For many years, Panama had a strong American influence and
because of this, many Panamanians speak English. As the American
influence subsides, the influx of tourists and foreign residents
are communicating more in Spanish, making Spanish language
schools in Panama more important.
With little more than a simple Google search in the computer,
an impressive number of Spanish language schools appear in
Panama. These can be schools that offer online training, short-term
instruction in Panama or high intensity, “instant immersion”
education. While online classes are very helpful, there is
nothing better than immersing oneself in the language, traditions
and culture of a new country. There are many Spanish language
schools in Panama that can help you do just that.
As mentioned before, many of the Spanish language schools
in Panama offer courses in the country, whether for local
foreigners trying to understand their new language, or residents
of other countries trying to learn. A few of these schools
