The Dariana Spanish School provided me with one of the best experiences of my life. I enrolled in a month long immersive Spanish language program. The school arranged for me to stay with a family for the duration of the program. The family was one of the highlights of trip. They were fun, engaging, I felt as though I was part of the home and made friends that I keep in contact with to this day. The city of Leon is worth seeing even if your just passing through Nicaragua. Its safe, vibrant and most of all is conducive to exploration without having to deal with a tourist atmosphere. The schools curricula was solid if not fast paced. In combination with living with a family and going out in the city I believe helped my learning process.
