Panama and Panama City
English Language Services for foreigners
– doctors, lawyers, medical tourism and buying real estate for people retiring or living here
We would like to share with you a few good contacts that we have here in Panama.
Staff and students like to share information about Real Estate Agents, residency and retirement visas, tour agencies, places to see in Panama, as well as restaurants. cafes, banking, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, setting up businesses in Panama, etc etc
Our school is a great contact place for people new to Panama. We can recommend a few lawyers who will make this process painless. We often have Americans and Europeans who are doing the same as yourself, retiring, moving to Panama, starting a business, or looking around for properties. We also have students (and a list of ex-students) who are well established in Panama. Where are you from? . There are lots of incentives like discounts for retirees of 20% on telephone, electricity and 50% at the cinema,etc. The government encourages foreigners to come here !
At Spanish Panama the support of teachers and our associates has often gone beyond professional Spanish instruction. We provide valuable community contacts and assistance for students getting around Panama and understanding the many eccentricities of a foreign culture.
Many students who have come to our school to learn Spanish have been grateful for the professional Spanish instruction that we provide. Those who wish to live, work, travel, and retire in Panama have been able to meet friends, business people, and socialize with people in the community with their new found or improved Spanish speaking skills.
Most important of all it has saved them a tremendous amount of money financially for the small price paid for their Spanish packages. In the most simple of activities such as shopping and taking a taxi (paying $3.00 for that taxi ride rather than $20.00), to more complex tasks such as apartment rental negotiations (paying $1000.00 a month rather than $2000.00), and purchasing real estate taking Spanish classes at Spanish Panama can help you.

Some Help and Advice
We are glad to be able to help you with our experience – Panama is a safe and secure country, but like everywhere there are scams and some people willing to take advantage of new people. We can help you avoid these kind of problems: Crooked Lawyers, Love cheats (some people have met the love of their lives only to be cheated out of their life savings), the real estate “deal of a lifetime?”
We hope to keep your experiences positive !
