“Casa Xalteva was everything we hoped it would be and more. We had no idea what the people were going to be like and much to our delight they are the most wonderful, friendly, helpful people that you could hope for when you are taking Spanish for the first time.”
Karen and Gary, British Columbia, Canada
"I came to Nicaragua by myself, but Casa Xalteva and my host family made it feel like home. Seeing how they gave their love and affection to the kids, how they help their students with everything… it just made me happy! In the beginning I was shy. I didn't speak even a word Spanish, but after a time I could have a long conversation with a stranger in Spanish. I've stayed 4 months in Nicaragua, but it wouldn't have been the same without Casa Xaltava. Thank you for your help, for giving me a great feeling, and thank you for this wonderful experience!"
Diana van Kemenade, The Netherlands
“I would highly recommend Casa Xalteva to anyone interested in learning or improving upon their existing Spanish skills. All of the instructors are excellent, with a very low student to instructor ratio, often 1 on 1. After only four days of classes, I was able to master enough "survival" Spanish to travel about Nicaragua solo. All of the people at Casa Xalteva, along with my home stay family greatly enhanced my Nicaraguan experience, I cant give enough compliments to the people at Casa Xalteva. I’ve been home barely a month and I am already planning my next trip to Nicaragua.”

“Casa Xalteva was a wonderful place to learn Spanish! The teachers were really friendly, very professional, and extremely helpful. I learned so much Spanish in only a few weeks and I was much more confident then I thought I would be. The afternoon excursions were so much fun and a great way to see what Nicaragua has to offer! I loved learning salsa and the discussion groups helped us understand and appreciate the Nicaraguan culture. I hope I have a chance to go back to Casa Xalteva and I would definitely recommend this school to everyone! Thanks so much for everything!”

"I spent 4 weeks learning Spanish and I can say that it was excellent value for money, the excursions were awesome and the after class activities like Salsa lessons were great. I really would recommend this school to anyone. You are guaranteed to pick up the language because the teachers are excellent and on top of everything and the money you pay goes towards raising and educating the kids, so it's all for a good cause."
Ville Westerberg, Zurich, Switzerland
"This was a fantastic Spanish school and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a professional, fun, warm and welcome learning environment. They are a not-for-profit school and are doing great things for the community. They are all wonderful people working there. I cannot fault it!"
