Since 1987, when ILISA was founded in Costa Rica, our mission was clear: to help you reach your learning goals by creating the ideal conditions in which to learn. Since that time, we have worked hard to exceed your expectations both in and outside the classroom. Expanding to Panama was the next step to reach out to students who wish to bring variety into their language learning. Immersing into another Latin American culture and experiencing a different Spanish accent, will strengthen your language skills as well as understanding of the variety of the Hispanic world.
We combine a highly motivated and well-trained staff, flexible and professional service with comfortable, well-equipped facilities and student-oriented approach to help you reach your goals. That's why we are the only language school in Latin America to guarantee your satisfaction.

Yahoo Groups: Americans living in Panama
The primary mission and purpose of Americans in Panama (or AIP) is to provide support, information, and a means of communication for English speaking expatriates who are currently living in the Republic of Panama or looking for information about living here.
Our name is "Americans in Panama" but we welcome English speaking members from all countries; Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and others. We use this group to share information, provide mutual assistance, and keep in touch with other expatriates.
These are VERY active groups. Hard to keep up with :-)
