What our students said about Havana


Rating: 4/5

Great city, very interesting. I would like to explore Vedado, the more recent campus. Too bad we couldn't swim somewhere close.


Rating: 5/5

I really like Havana, especially Habana Vieja. I never felt unsafe. Easy to walk around. Very friendly locals.

Corazón Cuba

The team was young and dynamic. There was always someone there, in case if problems, or just to talk. My Spanish teacher had just the right mix of fun and seriousness to motivate the entire group to peak performance. I grew so fond of the people that the farewell was really hard.

The skill of my language teacher, Pablito.
1. Classroom size was not proportionate to the number of students: My class contained 14 students which were too many to sit comfortably around the available tables and use the table surface. It was conducted in a room that was too small for that number and was next to a room in which another class was being conducted. All doors and windows were open which means that the sounds from the two classes continually invaded each other's space. Additionally, other students and staff regularly used the classroom as a corridor which was very distracting. 2. Water caused sickness and ultimately hospital treatment: While at Jakera, a number of other students and I became sick, apparently from drinking water from the cooler provided by the school. I remained sick for 5 days and ultimately spent time in hospital. Nobody from the school followed up to see if I needed help. I am a mature person used to self reliance and my husband later joined me in Havana. However, most of the other students are very much younger and would likely need help to navigate foreign systems. 3. Cover-up for an error?: Jakera employees/owners said that the government had announced that the water was less drinkable than usual during the time that students - I believe 5 of us - became sick. No other Cuban I spoke to, including staff at Central Hospital, was aware of such an announcement. I am inclined to believe therefore that this was a cover story and that possibly a staff member forgot to put in the requisite amount of 'disinfectant' that is usually added to the water in the cooler. 4. Excellent teacher: Despite the noisy and overcrowded conditions, my teacher, Pablito, did a very good job indeed during the time I was well enough to attend classes (3 days out of the 5 days booked).
