What Our Students Say

Loved this place! The staff and faculty were amazing, accomodating my sporatic schedule, providing excellent one-on-one learning opportunities and connecting me with volunteer work nearby. The location was really inspiring, within an artsy building in the middle of beautiful Casco Viejo. I would highly recommend stopping in if you find yourself in the area for a while. I definitely plan to return!
Wow – thanks so very much to all of my wonderful teachers. It really has been such a pleasure learning from all of you. I cannot believe what a difference it has made in my confidence con español! Muchas Gracias

I found Casco Antiguo via the sign on the road after trolling the internet, so I popped in. I found the staff so inviting and flexible. I chose private lessons and the teacher even taught on Saturdays to fit in with my travel plans!! I hope the reader has as good tutoring as I have received. Thank you to all.

I only had time for 2 lessons, but found both to be very useful and well planned. Thanks and good luck with the school!

After doing my research of all the schools in the city – I picked Casco Antiguo Spanish School. Right from the start, they were the best in terms of working around my schedule, they always responded to all my email questions promptly and helped arrange the perfect set up for my lessons. The teacher that the school assigned was great. She was very patient (very important for someone who is a beginner) and taught very well. The entire team at CASS was very professional. I would recommend this school for anyone interested in learning Spanish.

Thank you to everyone at Casco for providing such a wonderful learning environment and always going above and beyond to teach, help and will me to speak some Spanish! A very hard task and you handled it wonderfully! I hope to be back in Panama to visit in the future.

My daughters came here for 2 weeks and loved it! I couldn’t find a place for them as they’re 14 & 17 years old, but they were accepted here. Thanks! They started at colegios and hated them. This was perfect. I wish I had them attend classes here the entire time we were in Panama. I will recommend this school to others!
