Language course Spanish in Cartagena

Centro Catalina

Our partner school is located in the middle of the colonial centre, in a low building with a patio. There are five classrooms, all with the name of a region in Colombia. Of course there is wifi, a small lounge with computers and in the breaks you can get healthy smoothies, juice or coffee. In the patio, the students meet during the breaks and after the lessons.

Social Programme

Each week, the language school organizes three free activities. These include, for example, a salsa lesson, cooking class, movie night, guided tour of the old town, visit to museums, karaoke, etc. In addition they organize an excursion every weekend. For instance, to the Islas Rosario, where you will visit the island group and go snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Or a canoe trip through "Cienaga de la Virgen", an ecological tour with a guide. You can also take a "bath" in the volcano Totumo. And there are many more things to see and to do.

If you want to experience more of the social life in Colombia, the school can also help you to organize a voluntary job. It is not something you would have to do every day, but you can just do it for one afternoon per week, for example, helping out at a games afternoon for children

Intensive

Joining the intensive course, you have the choice between 20 or 30 lessons per week. There are 6 levels, according to the European Framework (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2).

With 20 lessons per week, attention is given to all aspects of learning the language: grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, pronunciation and of course also to fluency.

With 30 lessons per week, you have one extra lesson of conversation per day, in addition to the above mentioned program

Minimum age is 18 years.

Host Family

During your stay in a Colombian host family you will get to know the culture of the country really well. You will take part in the daily life of the family and get a glimpse of the real Colombia.

You will stay in a single or twin room with half board (breakfast and dinner).

In Cartagena the host families are all located within 25 minutes walking distance from the school.

Shared Apartment

You will share the apartment with maximum one other student from the language school. You will stay in a single room on a self catering basis.

Single-Use-Apartment

In a single-use apartment you will have all the facilities for yourself. If you are interested in this option, we recommend you to book in advance, as there are only a few apartments available.

Please note the standard price does NOT include hot water, since the location has a warm weather all year (between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius), so people use to have “cold” showers. However, if you prefer, you have the option of booking "hot water" (see supplement under the price table).

Residence

The residence in Cartagena is a shared house, located in the same street as the school. Here, you will live in the old city centre and share a house with other international students. You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom. There is airconditioning and WIFI. There also is a shared kitchen, living area and there are balconies.
