We colllaborate with volunteering project in Las Peñitas, Casa Verde, and we offer homestay to students who want the total immersion into the Spanish language.

Leonlingua is one of the few language schools in Nicaragua that exclusively utilizes teachers that have advanced and formal educations in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. All teachers at Leonlingua receive a fair and competitive salary; all of the classrooms we use at Casa Elisa are well equipped with an exclusive internet connection, optional air conditioning, fans, and all necessary equipment like notebooks, and teaching materials is offerd at a fair price.

We’re located in beautiful Las Peñitas, Nicaragua — a fishing village on the Pacific coast that is a short 15 minute drive from León, a colonial city that is the cultural and intellectual center of Nicaragua. Since Las Peñitas remains largely untouched by tourism, here you’ll discover an authentic Nicaraguan experience where Spanish is spoken almost exclusively, making it the ideal environment for both learning and practicing Spanish. When not in class, you can take surf lessons and catch world-class waves on one of several beaches or visit León and drop by local bars and coffee shops or take in concerts and museum exhibitions.
