Spanish Summer Course In Colombia

Volver a Oficina de Relaciones Internacionales

Did you know Colombians are known for speaking the best Spanish in the world? Come next summer and learn Spanish in Bogota, the capital city. According to Forbes Travel Guide's 12 Top Destinations of 2017, Bogota is a must. Even though the city is in constant evolution, it is still possible to appreciate images from the 80s and 90s, as well as modern settings. The boom in the restaurant industry and exciting attractions, such as the unique Gold Museum in Latin America, have made of Bogota one of the most attractive destinations in South America.

Throughout this 3-week course, you will learn and improve your Spanish skills in a real environment. Our Spanish course is aimed at foreigners with a beginner/basic level of Spanish who will acquire and develop communicative skills in this language that will help them get around the city in an effective way. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the culture through academic sessions, visits to factories and to tourist sites in Bogotá and its surroundings.
