Casa Elisa is the study center where Leonlingua is located.  When our students want to spend time in a Spanish speaking country, we offer classes at Casa Elisa.

Casa Elisa is comprised of study spaces, meeting rooms, conference centers, relaxation areas and overnight rooms where a variety of activities take place year round. Casa Elisa employs local Nicaraguans exclusively, in an effort to support and reinforce the local economy and community, and only pays the fairest wages — you can read more about the operational philosophy behind our decisions here.

All of our overnight rooms include private bathrooms, wifi, and optional AC. We’re located steps from the beach and are nestled in a quiet area of town so you can study in seclusion or surf, swim, and explore Las Peñitas at your leisure.

Learn from previous students about their experience at Casa Elisa.

Studying Spanish at casa Elisa is one of the best things I’ve ever done! Elisabeth is a lovely woman, after a consultation, she tailor made my studies, after my experience and requests. I took a intensive course for two weeks. My teacher Maria Solidad is a amazing lady, I learned so much, and we had so much fun. Casa Elisa is a lovely place to stay, the rooms are nice and clean. The ladies in the kitchen made me breakfast every morning and always encouraged me to speak Spanish. I would love to go back, and I recommend Casa Elisa from the bottom of my heart!
After learning Spanish on the Duolingo application, we wanted to take Spanish lessons during our trip to Nicaragua. We discovered the Casa Elisa school located in the small village of Las Peñitas. The last week with the owner and teacher Elisabeth, charmed us. It was a giant leap in our learning. Elisabeth has been teaching Spanish for many years and she evaluates us quickly and adjusts her teaching to our level. In addition to its newly built school, composed of classrooms and modern rooms for those who wish to stay there and at very affordable prices, makes it a unique place to learn. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to learn this beautiful language. Thank you Elisabeth for your availability and dedication!

Who would have thougt that 20 hours would give us so much knowledge. Thank you for our days and Spanish lessions at Casa Elisa with leonlingua. Who would have thougt that 20 hours would give us so much knowledge. Now we are ready to work in the ambulance in San Salvador and 4 months of travelling in Latinamerica. 10/10 would do it again. Recomend it to everyone
Anders and Pieters testimony
Best class ever! My Spanish skills are on a different level after the experience with Leon Lingua. Best class ever.
Hillarys testimony
*I have attended other immersion schools in Central America and had never had an instructor who specialized in teaching Spanish to native English speakers. I really like the perspective this brought to the classroom. *While I already had a good knowledge of Spanish grammar, I came away from my time with Leon lingua with a better understanding of how to use it in day to day conversation.
