Language courses for Adults at International House Bogotá

The school is housed in a beautiful old building in the heart of the historic district of La Candelaria. The building dates from the early 19th century and has been lovingly preserved. It still has many original features including beautiful tiled and wooden floors, ornately carved wooden high ceilings and two spacious interior courtyards that flood the building with natural light. The school owners jokingly call it 'El Palacio' because it is known as the building that five former Colombian presidents used to get dressed and prepared for their inauguration ceremony.  The school is housed in a beautiful old building in the heart of the historic district of La Candelaria.
