Questions and Answers
We offer intensive Spanish classes in purpose built classrooms or in outdoor thatched ranchos in our delightful grounds, full of tropical plants and rescued animals.

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

M17387 has been open for five years - over this period we have established a stable group of well trained, experienced and professional teachers who all live in the local community of San Juan de la Concepción.

2. What is your company's mission?

The teaching method that we have developed combines the highest level of professional excellence with the openness, humor and friendliness typical of Nicaraguan people.

3. What does your company specialize in?

We offer intensive Spanish classes. We know that for some, serious grammar study is what is required but for others a mixture of some conversational teaching with a range of activities works much more successfully!

4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

The head of the school, Bergman, has been building up the school since day one and his unique blend of language teaching skills, enthusiasm and humor has got many a student through the intricacies of the imperfect subjunctive! Richard, Gabriel and Chester speak English which helps enormously if you are a complete beginner. The conversation teachers, including Joanna, Elisa, Marlin and Elizabeth, are happy to respond to particular interests of individual students - from exploring Nicaraguan recipe books to visiting the local health clinic and schools - all as part of your conversation class

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

All of our packages are popular.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

The best compliment we have ever had is that we deliver what we say on the website!
