War sehr wertvoll für mich! Das Panama House B&B ist ein sehr guter Platz für Studenten. Die drei Standorte in Panama sind sehr unterschiedlich, aber auch sehr interessant! Ich hatte diesesmal nicht Zeit alle 3 Standorte zu besuchen, ich werde es aber vielleicht in einem Jahr machen! Ich war bei den Guna Indianern im Südteil von Panama (Atlantikseite) auf verschiedenen Inseln.

Wir hatten am Nachmittag von 14.00-18.00 Uhr Unterricht. Ich hätte es besser gefunden am Morgen Unterricht zu haben. Denn wenn wir jeweils etwas unternommen haben, mussten wir um 14.00 Uhr wieder zurück sein. Und viele Touristenattraktionen wie zum Beispiel Museen öffneten meist erst um 10.00 Uhr. Der Standort war super, denn wir wohnten im B&B Panama House. Das war praktisch gegenüben und auch die Metrostation Via Argentina war nur etwa sieben Minuten zu Fuss erreichbar.Die Klassenräume waren etwas klein und extrem klimatisiert. Wir mussten jeweils Socken und einen dicken Pullover mitnehmen. Die Pause verbrachten wir jeweils draussen;)Die meisten Schüler kamen von Amerika, Deutschland oder der Schweiz. Das war etwas schade. Oft war das Freizeitangebot nur etwas essen oder trinken zu gehen. Das finde ich in einer Stadt wie Panama City etwas mager. Die Lehrer trigen sich oft ein und man konnte auch viele Touren über die Schule buchen.

B&B Panama House

General information

B&B Panama House is a cozy hostel located right across the street from our Spanish school. As an Habla Ya Spanish student, you couldn't wish for a more convenient location, and just as with our Spanish school, you'll benefit from being within a stone's throw of Panama City's heart, yet on a road that is quieter than the main avenues of the City.
