When I first lived here in Managua, Nicaragua back in 2005/2006, I took courses at la UCA, which is the Universidad Centroamerica, a fairly prestigious institute of higher learning here in the country. I really enjoyed the structure and the interactions with the profesor and the other students. It really helped me. I should go back there and take some more classes to keep working on perfecting my español.

I want to post this information to let people know that there are serious Spanish schools here, and that even getting out and about to get to class on time is all part of the adventure and it will help you learn even more Spanish as you try to find the correct bus, negotiate taxi fares, or otherwise look to transport yourself across Managua to get to town.

Hey reader, watcha think?
