Tanis: "Studying Spanish and surfing at Playa Gigante has been a highlight of my trip! I signed up for Spanish lessons to be able to communicate with the locals in Nicaragua and throughout Central America during my travels. Working 1-1 with my friendly and encouraging teacher let me set a comfortable pace. Classes were a good mix of lessons, conversations and exercises, with material tailored to be most useful for travel.
Having class outside on the beach was an amazing perk! Playa Gigante has beautiful beaches and surfing, and I was even able to schedule my classes around the best surf times. My hostel, The Monkey House, was only a few steps away from the school and had an amazing view of the surf break and sunset."
Gunther: "Pie de Gigante not only has the most beautiful view of any school, it is filled with teachers who only speak Spanish and know just enough English to get your to the next level and push you to achieve the goals you have set with each other. I am getting a foundation that will last a lifetime and obtaining the skills to speak to people at my Dental Office, as well as my fellow neighbors and friends in Nicaragua. It is the best offer around too, less than $10 dollars an hour for unlimited quality education! On top of the school, Playa Gigante has everything you want--from world class surf, friendly people, all types of food options and a laid back environment that most will come to love."
Silvio: "My teacher makes Spanish classes really fun and explains things clearly. After just one week, I am able to talk with my host family. And my favorite part is that classes are held right on the beach where I love to ride waves."
Willa: "My experience at the Spanish school has been great. I have learned and mastered the alfabet, months, and days of the week. I also like the way my teacher explains things when I am confused. I love Spanish school and the teachers there, and the best part is that it is on the beach!"
Nico: "After finding myself in Gigante, I stumbled across this school and could not be happier about it. My experience at Pia Gigante Spanish School was excellent. My instructor had tons of energy and was always excited and ready for our lesson. He recognized that I already had a solid Spanish base and pushed me every day to improve my pronunciation, vocabulary and even taught me some local phrases! Everyday I got to surf and learn Spanish on the beach. Defiantly not a bad time in Gigante!"
Martin: "I learned more in two weeks of study with Pie de Gigante Spanish School than I learned in two years of formal Spanish study back home! The immersion increased my speaking skills rapidly. I opted for the homestay, which was a great affordable option for me. I recommend the homestay for people who are intermediate Spanish speakers and want to push themselves to the next level."
