Thank you for our days and Spanish lessions at Casa Elisa with leonlingua. Who would have thougt that 20 hours would give us so much knowledge. Now we are ready to work in the ambulance in San Salvador and 4 months of travelling in Latinamerica. 10/10 would do it again. Recomend it to everyone

Studying Spanish at casa Elisa is one of the best things I’ve ever done! Elisabeth is a lovely woman, after a consultation, she tailor made my studies, after my experience and requests. I took a intensive course for two weeks. I would love to go back, and I recommend Casa Elisa from the bottom of my heart!

After learning Spanish on the Duolingo application, we wanted to take Spanish lessons during our trip to Nicaragua. We discovered the Casa Elisa school located in the small village of Las Peñitas. The last week with the owner and teacher Elisabeth, charmed us. It was a giant leap in our learning. Elisabeth has been teaching Spanish for many years and she evaluates us quickly and adjusts her teaching to our level. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to learn this beautiful language. Thank you Elisabeth for your availability and dedication!

I have attended other immersion schools in Central America and had never had an instructor who specialized in teaching Spanish to native English speakers. I really like the perspective this brought to the classroom. *While I already had a good knowledge of Spanish grammar, I came away from my time with Leon lingua with a better understanding of how to use it in day to day conversation.
