Spanish Classes

We offer a full range of Spanish classes.

In May, 2013 Viva Spanish School updated our class programs. Our teaching materials and workbooks are now based on the proficiency guidelines provided by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).

We adjust every program to meet the goals of each student. Are you in Nicaragua for vacation? You may want to focus on our “Survival Spanish for Travelers Course”. Or, perhaps you are in Nicaragua for your work or for a university project or internship. Let us know your objectives and we will tailor your classes accordingly.
