The History of SPEAKHABLA

SPEAKHABLA was established in 2015 by a passionate and ambitious entrepreneur, Andrea Minicola. Her vision was to create a business providing English Classes to corporations and business professionals.

Andrea wanted to provide a proper learning experience, with proper teachers and proper classes/courses, in sharp contrast to the poorly organized schools she had seen first-hand. Andrea was determined to “fill a gap” that existed in Costa Rica, an English Language Gap. There were many schools that had English classes, but there were very few resources for Enterprise and Individual Business Professionals.

SPEAKHABLA only teaches Business Professionals, that is our focus, that is where 100% of our attention is. 100% focus is what has allowed us to create the best Business English Program available, not only to Costa Rica, but internationally as well.

SPEAKHABLA’S current reputation exists in part from her strong leadership, but Andrea did not do this alone, she is the owner but not the face of the business. Summer Adolph is the real face of SPEAKHABLA. Summer has been the Operations Manager of SPEAKHABLA since 2019, and over the last few years, she has created an amazing community of learners and teachers, managing the business to enable a strong learning platform and reputation. She has hired bright, lively highly qualified teachers who are able to inspire, entertain and motivate the students. Summer created many of the curriculums, assessments, grading and testing processes and helped build SPEAKHABLA from the ground up.

Today, teachers are still hired for their ability to inspire and SPEAKHABLA is about more than only English Classes.
