The focus will be on cultural immersion and helping students with speaking Spanish in no time. Our philosophy goes far beyond teaching Spanish. We want you to interact and immerse in Colombian culture!
Why flexible learning?
We offer 15 hours of small group classes with a flexible learning option. You can mold your language course to your needs by adding more hours of group lessons (5 more on a weekly basis) and private classes (between 1-5). We do this for a reason. We experience that the majority of students get frustrated, distracted and less productive after too much studying. Resulting in 15 hours of Spanish being more of the less equivalent to 20 hours! Of course, we like to have you on board for many hours, but that´s not the ideal learning environment for everyone. Therefore, we let students decide for themselves. Or they prefer a more intensive way of learning with extra hours and one-on-one attention!
