In order to experience a country more fully, you should try to  immerse yourself in its culture as much as possible. One way to achieve a better understanding of a culture is through its language. When you have a command of the language, your understanding of the country and its  people widens.    If you are planning a trip to Panama and want to brush up on your Spanish while you are here, Casco Antiguo Spanish School offers intensive Spanish classes.  The school is located in the lovely Casco Antiguo.
