Centro Catalina Spanish School: what do users think?
Nicole Chacon: Centro Catalina is a place where everything is done with passion and love. The team strives to give their best every day. Not only Spanish is taught, Colombian culture is also lived with many activities to guarantee an authentic experience beyond conventional tourism. Learning Spanish in cultural immersion guarantees rapid learning of the language. Colombian Spanish is considered by many to be the best to learn. The cities of Medellín and Cartagena are charming and allow an experience in very diverse contexts and regions, between the Caribbean and the Andes.
Camilo Ramirez: Great school, I learned a lot from you. I hope I can come back soon
Valérie Roy: Thanks for everything! cool experience
Lukas Niemeier: Great school. Perfectly organized with very skilled teachers, good equipment and a lot of fun during classes. I went for 30h/week for two weeks. One in Medellin and one in Cartagena. The Different knowledge levels of the students were taken into account and the groups built fit well together. Thanks again for a great time!
Gaby Sierra: Excellent!
Laura Liszewski: Really nice experience in this school, recommend!
Tom Lovett: I cannot recommend this school enough. I am absolutely amazed that. I'm able to have spontaneous conversations with locals about a host of topics, considering I only did four weeks of classes, starting from zero. I was worried that doing well in classes wouldn't carry over to the real world, but that has not been the case at all.The classes themselves were really enjoyable. My teachers were great, the other students were great. We cracked plenty of jokes while still learning new grammar and vocabulary.The school was very helpful when it came to logistics as well. I literally enrolled on a Friday afternoon for Monday morning classes. Also, the school allowed me to print documents and received a package for me.Cannot recommend this school highly enough.
Laura Shadley: Had a wonderful experience at Centro Catalina - Cartagena. The instructors and staff were outgoing and helpful. School always flew by because it was so much fun. I was nervous to speak with people in Spanish, but I gained a lot of confidence while I was there! The school organized a lot of fun activities that allowed you to experience more of the city. They also organized a trip to Isla Grande on the weekend, which was incredible! I stayed with an awesome host family very close to the school. I can't say enough good things!
Dario Paolillo Mendoza: Super escuela, Muchas gracias, thanks a lot for the great time!The support, activities, treatment and personal are fantastic. Colombia and the School has stolen my heart and they are like a second home and like a Family. May God always bless you in Name of Jesus! Bendiciones mi gente bella
Jim C.: I had a great time a Centro Catalina. The school is located in the historic center of Cartagena, with lots of restaurants, shops and sights in a short walking distance.Teachers and staff are just awesome and made my stay a unique and special experience. Everybody is super friendly and helpful.All in all a great experience, defenitely a school that I can recommend.
lisa muzzin: This is a great place to learn or improve your Spanish. Not only are the teachers and classes of top quality but there are free events most days as well. This helps you to get to know other students and the city and to practice your spanish even more. I really enjoyed my time here. Thanks everyone!
Max N: Great Experience
Yanis GUIGNOUNE: Une école totalement a l’écoute de nos besoin et le tout avec le sourire. Une ambiance géniale du début à la fin. je recommande vivement cette école.
Loris Contro: I spent 6 FUNtastic weeks learning Spanish and everything I could about the Colombian heritage and culture at Centro Catalina, and would have spent a lot more than that if I had had more time. The teachers, facilities, customer service, extra activities and anybody who works in there with great passion: everything was excellent! I attended both schools in Medellin and Cartagena,and I strongly recommend them.
William Zarb: C'est une super école les cours sont très bien organisés , les professeurs sont géniaux. Il y a beaucoup d'activités qui sont organisés chaque jour .
Thomas Augsten: School was great fun, wonderful staff, and evening as well as weekend activities are organized. Stayed for a 1-week elementary course and would come back. Also limited number of affordable rental rooms available in a safe neighborhood.
Emeline Flores: Une super école pour apprendre l'espagnol ! Une super ambiance entre les élèves et les professeurs :)
HAMOOD AL TOQI: Great school great stuff the best experience to learn Spanish highly recommend
Caleb Solofra: Great school! Classes allowed me to dig deep into not only the language but also the culture of Medellín. I have traveled a lot, and this school is the most friendly and made me most comfortable.Here’s a list of other great things:-provided a fantastic host family-top notch classes-good location in Medellín (lots to do)-optional evening activity provided each day (like a movie, salsa classes, etc)-clean facility
Brian Eaten: Perfect Spanish school for a perfect experience. S/o to David
Danny Lee: I truly can recommend centro catalina for every person who wants to learn spanish - doesnt matter which level you have! The facilities, the staff, the teachers and the way they teach are top notch! Every day they have an activity for the afternoon and also for the weekends, like salsa class, movies, city- or graffiti-tours, etc. Also the school is in the middle of centeo historico and so you can find many restaurants, bars and shops just next to it! On this point i want to say MUCHAS GRACIAS to all of the staff, especially to David, who is an amazing "papi"!! All of you, keep going the way you do!! Mucho gusto.. jackie! ;)

Spanish World Institute - Spanish School: what do users think?
Niko Schmuck: Eine Woche in dieser Schule war für mich eine wunderbare Erfahrung. Gute Lehrer, die auch außerhalb des Unterrichts, in der Pause, während des Mttagessens und sogar nach der Schule Zeit für mich hatten. Vielen lieben Dank an Maria, Luz und Manuel für die spannenden Gespräche und Eure Geduld. Anfang Dezember waren nur wenige Studenten in der Schule, so dass ich quasi Privatunterricht hatte. Aber auch die Fahrradtour, Spaziergang durch die Cartagenas Altstadt und Bossa Nova Konzert waren eine schöne Gelegenheit mehr von der Stadt und Leben hier zu erfahren. Getsemaní, ein Bezirk, wo sich die Schule befindet, ist richtig lebendig und bietet mit seinen bunten Häusern, Cafés und kleinen Geschäften so viel, um das karibische Leben zu genießen.
Hans-Jakob Schäfer: Very nice school, good teachers, small classes and afternoon activities with locals. Also helped me with organizing my further holidays and other things like local SIM card and vaccination. You don’t do a mistake when choosing this school.
Carsten Huber: Spanisch lernen (auch als Bildungsurlaub möglich!) in einem der schönsten Städte der Welt am warmen karibischen Meer.SWI bietet Spanisch Sprachurlaub im Künstlerviertel Getsemani in Cartagena an. Man lernt hier in einer familiären, freundlichen Atmosphäre in kleinen Gruppen. Die Schule ist gut ausgestattet, hat eine Top Lage mit vielen netten Restaurants und Cafes direkt um die Ecke und hat gute, ambitionierte Lehrer.Cartagena ist UNESCO Weltkulturerbe und und bietet ein einzigartiges Ambiente, tolle Restaurants und ein legendäres Nachtleben mit vielen (Salsa-) Clubs. CTG ist nur 1,5 Flugstunden von BOG entfernt.Maria von SWI in Bogotá ist Eure Haupt-Ansprechpartnerin rund um Euren Sprachurlaub. Sie organisiert alles nach Euren Wünschen. In Cartagena wiederum ist die sehr hilfsbereite Nahomy Eure Ansprechpartnerin.Ich kann diese Sprachschule nur wärmstens empfehlen, das Ambiente in dieser Stadt ist einmalig, ein perfektes setting, um Spanisch zu lernen und es gleich vor Ort anzuwenden!
Almar Vergunst: I had a really great time at spanish world institute. A great place to learn spanish with good teachers. I had two week of private lessons over here with two different teachers. Both teachers (Andrés and Nahomy) were really friendly and skilled in the things they doing.Thanks Andrés and Nahomy for this good time and the things you learned me! I will definitly come back to learn more.
Jay D'Alba: The Spanish World Institute.When you first enter you are greeted by the friends you have known forever, but you are meeting for the first time. They are your instructors who will lead you on a voyage into a culture like no other. This is the essence of the Spanish World Institute - here learning is fun!Having learning experiences in numerous countries, I can say without hesitation that The Spanish World Institute is the best!
Selina Wiggins: I enjoyed studying there and learned a lot. Also the activities outside the classroom were really nice. The teachers are friendly and Ana, who was my teacher, did a great job. A negative aspect in my opinion is that you don‘t get a skript with the rules, grammar etc. but only single sheets about the topic that you discuss in class.
Blair Healy: The Spanish school was fantastic. Highly recommended, Maria and her staff create a safe, comfortable environment in which to learn and practice the language, but will make sure to tailor your learning experience to the pace best suited to you.
Eglenis Garcia: Good school
Laurin Rienhardt: I spend 6 weeks at the Spanish world institute to really become fluent in Spanish and I am more than happy about my time here. Right from the beginning the teachers took really good care of me and adapted the classes to my level. Furthermore without having booked it, I had one to one tuition the entire time, which really helped a lot with my personal progress. I could always ask questions and would get helpful replies. Everybody is extremely friendly and also all the teachers speak English well, so it's not a problem, if your Spanish is a little lacking in the beginning. The location is great, cartagena is a beautiful city to spend some time and the teachers will be sure give you recommendations on what to do and even organize stuff for you. Very glad to have been here.
Steffen W: Muchas gracias a Ane y Ani! I had only one week, but still learned a lot. If possible, I will come back and continue my lessons. The two are the best Spanish teachers, so enthusiastic and truly seem to enjoy teaching spanish and also their culture.
Jessica Castro: Great school, it offers oportunity to practice spanish in a real context. Located in rhe trendy neighboorhood (getsemani)
Alec Altonen: I went to Spanish World Institute for one week. The professors are awesome and interactive. Come into this school at any spanish experience level. The school is easy to find and in a great location in town. Defintely worth it.
Ingebjørg Rygnestad: I studied at SWI in Cartagena for 3months in 2017, and after the first two weeks I noticed that things weren't exactly clean or the way it was supposed to be. A rude and exploiting manager is to blame for this. My main teacher was excellent in her job and the reason why I learned Spanish so good, but if the manager was to decide I would most likely have failed my exam in the end. The manager refused me to switch teacher, she put me in a lower level group of student to save money, even though there were teachers available. She was the one deciding my curriculum even though my teacher, who in fact is educated in the field and she not, wanted to do it otherwise which slowed down my progress. These are factors which has influenced my classes, but why I really can not recommend this place is because I know how she treats her staff. They get almost daily treatenings that if they don't do this and that they will be fired, she holds back the monthly payment and also forces her staff to pay for the extra expenses for the air-condition (which was higher due to a higher number of students). I have many more examples just as ridiculous as this one. And when 4 out of 6 staffmembers have been fired since I was there, it should go off some alarm bells when you choose your school. PS: Just a last funny story. The manager refused me to have classes with one of my teachers because she though that I would end up pregnant...what more can I say? Best wishes for my X-teachers
Christian Wörz: I studied here for almost 3 weeks and could really improve my Spanish! I was the only student in my group so I had like private classes with Victoria. The classes were really fun and well structured. It was a well balanced mix between grammar, exercises and conversation including some listening comprehension. Thank you very much Victoria! I did not give 5 stars because I would have preferred to meet more students there and to have more activities (like every afternoon). I think the school needs to invest more money in online marketing to attract more younger students from abroad. Besides the school is very beautiful and perfectly located in Getsemani!
Katie Johnson: I took a week of intensive classes before traveling across South America for the summer. It was a good way to get to know the language and to be able to practice speaking and listening. I thought the lessons were well rounded. I learned about grammar but was still about to practice speaking and listening and learn about Colombian culture. I was the only student in my class so I was able to receive extra attention. I would recommend SWI to anyone visiting Cartagena.
Carly Ellis: I really enjoyed learning at this school. Tania was a very nice teacher and helped me learn basic Spanish. I felt comfortable to ask questions and have come away with more knowledge than before. I would recommend to anyone :)
Stewart Martin: I think that SWI is one of the better schools in Cartagena. They generally have small class sizes (I was 1 on 1) which means that there is more attention for each student. I went to the school in Bogotá at the start of my time in Colombia and was able to continue from the same ciriculum when I arrived later in Cartagena. Having a school in both of these places is ideal for travellers looking to improve their spanish as they travel.
Lemoine Joachim: Very good school and the teachers are very friendly!
Alison Cortes: I took classes at Spanish World Institute in Cartagena for two weeks after taking classes at another school in El Centro. I preferred Spanish World Institute because I received personal attention and care from the teachers and administrators and felt like I was part of a family. The classes were very comprehensive and the focus was on what I wanted to work on, as opposed to a strict curriculum. The teachers took us on several excursions around the city and also arranged a Salsa class for all of the students, after which I ended up taking private lessons with the teacher at the school. The school is located in a beautiful part of Getsemani, close to Plaza de Trinidad. I recommend Spanish World Institute to anyone who is considering taking Spanish classes in Cartagena.
Caroline Gerber: I am studying spanish in this spanish school for two weeks and it is a very good experience.first there is a test you have to do and then your individual program will be prepared. that is very eficent. i like to learn in this school, because the teacher are very friendly and profesional. i am also teacher and am satisfied with spanish world insitute in cartagena. i would recommend to come here and learn spanish.
Thomas Wojkowski: Schule mit Hauptsitz in Bogota und seit etwa einem Jahr auch mit Standort in Cartagena fuer diejenigen die es waermer und touristischer moegen. Die Schule liegt in der wunderschoenen Altstadt von Cartagena umgeben von netten Lokalen und hat sich mittlerweile gut etabliert. Fuer Interessenten des Bidlungsurlaubs sehr gut geeingnet, da es sehr indivduell gestalltet wird mit Moeglichkeiten den Unterricht mit vielen Interessen und Aktivitaeten zu fuellen (z.B. Vokabeln lernen am Strand) Ich haette mir einzig und allein ein wenig mehr Unterrichtsmaterial gewuenscht um etwas mehr Strukur aufzubauen.Fazit: Der Standort ist ein Taum. Sehr farbenfroh und mit karibischen Einfluss. Gutes Preis- leistungsverhaeltnis (guenstigste die ich auf der Suche weltweit gefunden habe). Man lernt mit Spass!

Babel Spanish School: what do users think?
Connor Saxton: After reviewing several different language schools and teachers in Cartagena I took Spanish lessons at Babel. The partnership with the dance school brought great value to the package. The teachers there were good quality. I had lessons with Tania and got to know Esmeralda too. Overall it was an enriching experience for me and a great way to get amongst the scene in the city.
Paul Akers: I spent two months at Esmeralda‘s language school and I loved every second of it excellent excellent instruction very reasonable and best of all I took dance lessons almost every day and I improve my Spanish and my dancing skills. What an amazing experience all in one place
Adrien Hamdi: I would more than highly recommend this school! It has been such a great experience... More than a great school, it's a community that is waiting for you. I had the chance to meet the owner Esmeralda who takes us to different great experiences there in Cartagena. We have been diving in the islands, eating in great local restaurants, surfing in the best spots, dancing Salsa in the best salsa school of Cartagena "crazy salsa" which is also her school. Everything was perfect. On the top of that, I had the chance to make a lot of friends that were having classes in Babel.. I had booked one month of class and 3 weeks on this total was private class. Definitely the best service in town. The whole building has just been renovated, classes are clean and teachers amazing, they take all the time you need to go into details... They generally propose their help for everything you need and local homestay to even more practice your Spanish. I don't know what else to say except that this school is the perfect starting point to deeply discover this incredible city that Cartagena is. Long life to the best spanish school of Cartagena!
Jessica Abijaude: The school is really good!Teacher Tânia is very attentive, and adapts to the student's needs.I recommend!
Corina Fust: I highly recommend Babel school. I enjoyed going to class, our needs were met, I learned a lot in a short time and had a lot of fun. The school is located in the centre. Furthermore, the teachers are super nice and helpful. GO FOR IT! :-)
Max Olsen: I had an amazing time at Babel. It didn’t feel like an obligation to go to school, rather I looked forward to it. My teacher Tania taught me grammar and vocabulary but we also just had random conversations in Spanish as well. I made friends with my classmates and went out with them after class nearly every day. I made connections that will last me for a lifetime.
Nick D'Urso (dursonj): I met the owner Esmeralda through a friend of mine and took classes with Tania for a week. The classes were amazing and really helped me out with the functions of Spanish I had forgotten from when I was a kid in school. I took a placement test to see where I would be placed and I felt great with what I was learning for the week. When I go back I will definitely take more classes! I would highly recommend this school for anyone spending time in Cartagena. It's in a perfect location and an awesome place to learn. The teachers and everyone are just fantastic. I really mean it.
Elin Olsen-Nalum: I was in Cartagena two weeks in november/desember and wanted to do an intensive Spanish course. The Babel school had not so many students and none on my level so I received private lessons. Perfect! God, patient teachers and other staff and laidback atmosphere. The school is located right outside the old town. Free group dance class for all the students enrolled in a course. It’s recommended!
lorenz maurer: I spent there 3 weeks and I had a great time! The school is located in the historic center (8 min walk from getsemaní). The classes were small so the teacher could respond to individual needs. In general everyone was very friendly and helpful.Another plus: free salsa lessons are included too.Definitely recommendable!
Anina Hofer: Was a good experience and especially I recommend the private lessons, because there you talk more about everyday life, the lessons in the morning are more theoretical. Furthermore the school is very central located!
Evelyn Harlacher Fotografie: Very nice experience with the Babel Professors. Thank you very much for those 4 weeks at school. The lessons were very interesting and varied.We also did some very fun excursions.
Tania Tarriba: Excellent

Nueva Lengua - Cartagena: what do users think?
Lily Meng: I had a great experience at Nueva Lengua, the teachers and staff are very nice and patient. They have good methods and offer many free fun activities after school. 这个学校很不错,喜欢我的老师,教育方法和许多免费的课余活动。
Arielle Bernardin: I recently attended Nueva Lengua Cartagena Spanish School for 3 weeks and it was by far the best 3 weeks ever. The school was amazing with wonderful and knowledgeable teachers like Paula and Carolina. Paula was incredibly patient and kind, while Carolina went above and beyond with her engaging and upbeat teaching style. I miss them both dearly! They made learning so much fun that we looked forward to attending classes each day.On top of that, the weekly activities organized by the school were incredibly fun and entertaining; I always looked forward to them and especially loved how they put up a clear schedule on the wall to inform us about them. I also had the opportunity to meet such wonderful people from all around the world that I still keep in contact with. Thanks to their excellent teaching methods and engaging activities, my Spanish has improved tremendously.I would highly recommend Nueva Lengua to anyone who wants to learn or better their Spanish while having a great time. Thank you, Nueva Lengua Cartagena Spanish School, for an unforgettable experience!
Kaili Barnes: I came to Nueva Lengua to learn medical Spanish for my future care. I have only been here for 4 days and my Spanish has gotten so much better! The way they teach her is so incredible! The teachers a very supportive and you can tell they love their jobs! Everyone I have met here has said that this is one of the top programs in the world and I definitely think that is true. This program brings in so many people from so many different countries and it’s so wonderful to be around them all. My first week I have Gaby and Mayra as my teachers and they a wonderful!! I’m so excited for the next 4 weeks here!
Loes de Smet: My boyfriend and I followed the intense Spanish course for two weeks at the start of our trip to Colombia. The experience was amazing! The communication with the office went smoothely and the activities after school are fun and a great way to practice your Spanish. Our teachers (Mayra and Carolina) were really professional and you can see they have a passion for teaching and the Spanish language. They always motivated us and made learning a new language so much fun. We have learned so much in two weeks! Would definitely recommend others to go there as well.
Thomas Avedissian: Did 2 weeks of Spanish school at Nueva Lengua and it was a great learning experience! The teachers are very professional and fun (special shoutout to Mayra and Carolina) and the activities the school organizes are a great way to learn about Cartagena and Colombian culture.
Lord North YoungBoy: Nueva Lengua est une école incroyable, situé dans le centre ville de Cartagena. Je recommande vivement cette expérience. Des professeurs compétant et à l’écoute des étudiants
Jaqueline Marcelino: Foi uma ótima experiência. Os professores são excelentes, e temos a oportunidade de conhecer pessoas de todo o mundo enquanto aprendemos.
Nicole Jeandupeux: Très bonne école, j'ai fait beaucoup de progrès en 1 semaine, les cours sont bien structurés entre théorie et pratique et les profs sont très sympas et arrangeants !
sammy habes: L école offre des cours de tout niveau, j’aime leur méthode d apprentissage qui me semble être efficace. Ils sont très sympathiques.
Andressa Roque: Tive uma experiência incrível! Os professores e todos os profissionais da escola foram maravilhosos do começo ao fim. Uma oportunidade incrível de conhecer a cidade, além de conhecer pessoas novas e melhorar o Espanhol. Recomendo muito.
Honorine Desilles: J’ai adoré apprendre l’espagnol au sein de cette école ! Tout s’est très bien passé entre la qualité des professeurs, les groupes de petite taille qui permettent de progresser rapidement et la qualité des activités incluses ! Merci
Kleber Francisco da Silva: É uma escola com arquitetura charmosa, a estrutura é colonial e os professores são muito receptivos. A comida é muito gostosa e as atividades extras são muito legais. Aprendemos Espanhol o dia todo praticamente, fiquei duas semanas estudando na escola e tive muita troca cultural, já estou com saudades e vontade de voltar.
Elias: Tiden min på Nueva Lengua i Cartagena var et minne for livet. Skolen har en fantastisk lokasjon i hjertet av Cartagena. Jeg var der i 10 dager og ble utrolig godt motatt. Jeg hadde Carolina som lærer og WOW, for en evne til å lære bort. Vi avsluttet alltid med 1 time med fokus på kommunikasjon, hvor Kevin var helt strålende. Aktivitetene etter skolen var også veldig gøy, fordi du utforsket byen på måter du elles aldri ville gjort. Jeg kan virkelig anbefale denne skolen til andre reisende.
ian paul: The school is a great place to enrol. The teachers are helpful, friendly and assist you regardless of what level of Spanish you have. It’s a great place to mix with like minded travellers so it doesn’t matter if you enrol by yourself or with a travelling buddy as there are daily activities for you to interact with fellow travellers if you choose to. I was fortunate to have Kevin, Mayra, Carolina and Paola as my main teachers but also had the pleasure of having Eli the dance teacher who is packed full of energy to help me going from having 2 left feet to pulling of salsa, merengue and bachata dance routines. I’m happy to have spent my time here.
Eve B: Ich habe für zwei Wochen an der Schule Nueva Lengua einen Spanischkurs gemacht. Die Schule hat eine sehr gute Lage in Getsemani, einem bunten belebten Viertel. Meine Gastfamilie wohnt im Stadtteil Manga in 15 Minuten Fußweg von der Schule entfernt. Mir haben die beiden Wochen Unterricht sehr viel gebracht. Wir haben viel Theorie gelernt und wiederholend geübt. Dabei wurde ausschließlich Spanisch gesprochen. Die beiden Lehrerinnen Mayra und Ana haben den Unterricht sehr gut gestaltet und uns sehr viel Geduld entgegengebracht. Es war eine angenehme Atmosphäre in der Klasse. Die Gruppengröße war mit 4-5 Leuten perfekt als Intensivkurs. Das Unterrichtsmaterial war auch sehr übersichtlich. Nachmittags wurden viele verschiedene kostenlose Aktivitäten von der Schule angeboten, z.B. Kochkurse, Ausflüge in der Stadt (Burg, Museum), Kajakausflüge am Strand und in die Mangroven. Die Unterrichtszeiten von 9-13 Uhr haben sehr gut gepasst um den Nachmittag noch zu nutzen. Ich habe zusätzlich zum Spanischkurs noch einen Tanzkurs gemacht. Wir hatten sehr viel Spaß und ich habe in die Salsa, Bachata und Merengue gelernt. Muchas gracias!
Nico Le: Ich habe insgesamt zwei Wochen lang die Sprachschule Nueva Lengua in Cartagena besucht und war so begeistert, dass ich nach einer Woche verlängert habe. Die Schule befindet sich direkt im zentralen, coolen Stadtteil Getsemani. Ich wohnte bei einer kolumbianischen Familie 20 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt. Der Unterricht fand von 9-13 Uhr statt, es wurde nur spanisch gesprochen.In der Schule wurde ein leckeres preisgünstiges Mittagessen angeboten, Getränke waren frei.Selbst Lehrerin, war ich von den modernen Lehrmethoden und der Vielfalt der Aufgaben angenehm überrascht. Der Unterricht wurde professionell vorbereitet, war gut strukturiert und dem Niveau der Gruppe angepasst. Die Lehrkräfte sind sehr gut ausgebildet, motiviert und freundlich. Ich habe die Grammatik gut verstanden und große Fortschritte im Lesen, Schreiben und Verstehen von spanischen Texten gemacht. Jeden Nachmittag wurden zusätzlich kostenlose Gruppenaktivitäten angeboten, z.B. Koch- und Tanzkurse oder Ausflüge in die nähere Umgebung.Ich habe eine tolle Zeit in Cartagena verbracht, das karibische Urlaubsfeeling sehr genossen und kann diese Sprachschule uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Mélissa VALSIN: J'ai énormément apprécié mon séjour de 2 semaines à l'école de Cartagena au mois de février dernier. Toute l'équipe a été très accueillante et ça a été un plaisir d'étudier au sein de Nueva lengua.Malgré ma courte durée de séjour, mes professeurs Gerald et Mayra m'ont permis de bien progresser en espagnol et en plus, les cours ont toujours été passionnants.De plus, les activités de l'école étaient très diversifiées et m'ont permis de connaître davantage la culture colombienne; j'ai d'ailleurs même pu découvrir le carnaval de Barranquilla grâce à Cynthia, organisatrice de l'évènement au sein de l'école.L'école est très bien située au coeur du magnifique quartier coloré de Getsemani, où il règne une ambiance festive en permanence.La bonne humeur générale au quotidien et le sourire de l'ensemble du personnel de cette école ont rendu mon séjour inoubliable.Aujourd'hui, mon seul regret au sujet de cette école aura été de ne pas avoir pu y rester plus longtemps.
Serafim: A Escola Nueva Lengua é incrível, certamente eu posso dizer que aqui formamos uma família, eu fui muito bem recebido pelos colegas de classe, funcionários e todos os Professores (as) são muito amáveis e solicitos, Eles (as) conhecem e dominam o idioma e me ajudaram muito na imersão ao Español. Adorei a experiência e em breve vou trazer o meu filho aqui para fazer o curso e intercâmbio. Eu recomendo a escola, amigo (a) Brasileiro venha ter uma boa experiência inesquecível na Escola Nueva Lengua. Saludos 🇧🇷🇨🇴.
Robert Parkin: Professional, supportive, excellent tutors, amazingly good value.. highly recommended!
Domi Rüttimann: Die sechs Monate, die ich bei Nueva Lengua verbracht habe, waren unglaublich bereichernd. Der Unterricht war erstklassig und die Lehrer waren professionell und generell sehr gut. Das Tagesprogramm war vielfältig und ermöglichte es mir, meine Sprachkenntnisse praktisch beim Tanzen oder bei Ausflügen anzuwenden. Die Atmosphäre in der Sprachschule war einladend und unterstützend. Insgesamt kann ich Nueva Lengua uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Arnold Bregman: I have had a great time at Nueva Lengua Cartagena. I combined my Spanish lessons with a business trip. The teachers are professional and push you to communicate in Spanish on the first day. Also, they organize everyday an activity in the city so you can learn and practice your Spanish with locals and other students.

Raíces: Spanish & Culture: what do users think?
Eric Saito: I've been working with Raices for over two years (!!!!) now and have enjoyed every bit of it. I've been taking Skype lessons with Orfarit from the beginning and my comfort with the language has improved dramatically. I especially enjoy that I can help guide the lesson to make it applicable to my work and interests. When I visited Cartagena, I studied with Jader. Our lessons together were part Spanish class part historical tour which I loved. Gracias por todo, Raíces! Regresaré pronto :)
Karina Rattke: The Spanish private lessons were exactly what I needed. Someone to correct my mistakes that I made unconsciously every day in my conversations in the hostel, in the restaurant or on the street. I had booked eight hours with the super friendly Esperanza and these were very flexibly adapted to my needs every day.Contacting them via email was not a problem.I became aware of Raíces because they conduct their lessons outside of the usual classrooms. We've been to different cafes and public parks. In this way, you also get useful tips for worthwhile places in Cartagena.The content of the lessons was also varied and related to the culture and everyday life in Colombia and Latin America.At the end of each lesson, I received a written summary of what was discussed, which Esperanza had done in parallel in order to be able to consolidate my new knowledge afterwards.Thank you Raíces and especially Esperanza for this great time!You are now a part of my journey that I look back on fondly.
Oscar Hulleman: Good language school with enthusiastic teachers and a fun way of teaching. We did not work in a classroom but from different places in the city. This way you get to know Cartagena better and you learn to use your Spanish in practice.I myself had private lessons from Esperanza for two weeks and I really enjoyed it. She explained the material well, was patient and picked out nice tents. In short, they were educational and pleasant mornings.Value for money ($13-15 per hour of private tuition) is also good compared to other schools I had found.
Happiness and LOVE: It's a perfect place to learn the beautiful language Spanish.You not only learn Spanish you also learn about the beautiful city Cartagena.It has a good central location and the teachers are super helpful and friendly! I can highly recommend it! Always again!
Kristen Jensen: I was able to take private lessons with Estefany for a month (4 hours a day) as I was studying to pass a language exam for my university. Estefany and the rest of the Raíces staff are so fun and knowledgeable in their profession! I learned so much about Spanish, Colombia, and Cartagena. Estefany was amazing knowing what would be required and could assess my level really well. I ended up getting a level above what was required of me! Would highly recommend using Raíces for any type of Spanish education, be it casual learning or studying for an important test!
Amy Bryant: I've used Raices for myself and my 9 year old son - on two separate occasions. Their pricing is very reasonable and their instruction exceeded my expectations both times. They creatively worked with my 9 year old to keep him engaged in the language. They are also open to unique experiences outside of the classroom. I highly recommend reaching out to Esperanza or Estefannia! And, Blanca is great with kids as well!
Sarah Vella: I greatly enjoyed my overall language learning experience at Raices. I wanted to find a school where I could increase my speaking and listening fluency, and I did not want the traditional classroom/grammar approach to learning. Their one on one full immersion approach was perfect for me. My teacher Esperanza customized my class experience to what my language needs and interests were. We went to museums, bookstores, cafes, parks and went shopping, all while practicing Spanish. It was a very fun language learning experience, and Cartagena is a very fun place to learn in! I also was invited to go to a concert with the rest of the Raices teachers and students which was a lot of fun! They also found me a homestay where my hosts were very friendly and only spoke Spanish, which I feel really helped my immersion experience. Now that I am back home, I am taking classes on Skype also with Esperanza in order to keep on improving my speaking and listening skills. If you are looking for the full immersion experience I highly recommend Raices!
Silas Bleisch: I lived for six months in Cartagena back in 2018 after my Senior High School Year in Switzerland and took classes at Raíces for several months to improve my Spanish. An extraordinary thing about Raíces is the way they teach. Their personalised classes were tailored to my specific needs and wishes at my convenience.As someone who started at a B2 level I truly appreciated that they knew how to help me eradicate my tiny little mistakes, augment my vocabulary and enhance my oral understanding of the rather rapidly spoken local spanish, the so-called Costeñol. Thanks to my teachers Esperanza and especially Estefany I aced the C1 exam with a 94% score, which would not have been possible without them! However, Raíces is also incredibly competent in teaching beginners as the majority of my fellows were. The teachers do speak English, some very well and the others at least at a conversational level. If this is not sufficient they explain it with "their hands and feet".Furthermore, the slogan "Spanish and culture" reflects its programme, as the teachers are all young and adorable persons who take their students out on a beer after class, show them the city´s most charming spots and organise regular excursions to the villages nearby. I participated in several of them, e.g. we went playing "tejo" in Turbaco or visited a native colombian village near Sincelejo over the weekend, which was one of my personal highlights of my whole stay in Colombia!Another special thing are their weekly spanish soirées in which the teachers and their students meet around 6 locals to practice speaking and to deepen their knowledge about the Spanish language and Colombia by playing cool group games.All this is what distinguishes Raíces from any other language school in Cartagena as the teachers virtually do everything to not only teach you Spanish but beyond that also make you feel welcome and cared about during your stay in their country. I can especially recommend this school to American, German and Swiss (or any european) students, as the school has years of experience about how to make these nationalities feel comfortable.Thank you guys very much I had a blast and see you in Switzerland 2019! :)Su estudiante estrella Sili
Chad Garrett: I've tried to contact this company numerous times both via email and by phone using phone calls and texts. The only response I received was via text telling me they would contact me later. Still waiting and no response. Can't speak to the Spanish lessons offered by this company but can say the initial contact with them to try to arrange classes is terrible. Multiple other companies in the Cartagena were much more responsive. I hope the lessons are offered are better than the customer service.
Katy Keenan: I love Raíces Spanish School!
I worked with Esperanza while I was in Cartagena this summer and we have continued online twice a week since then. She is an excellent teacher, very patient & great at explaining things.We talk about different topics each time which helps build vocabulary and keep the lessons fun while reinforcing grammar and conjugations.I haven’t worked with any of the other teachers but they seem like a very close-knit group and I’m sure they are all just as talented and wonderful to work with.I can’t recommend Raíces enough! 
In person or online, your Spanish will improve & you will have lots of fun in the process!
amy kreger: This school is absolutely wonderful. Their learning approach is like no other language school around. It's not a typical classroom explore the city...everything is completely catered to you and your learning style...and it's not more expensive than the other schools around. I'm was an absolute beginner at learning Spanish before taking lessons at Raíces...I am a slow learner and I was blown away with how much I learnt in my month with Esperanza...The teachers are so caring and dedicated. They help you to keep learning by holding free really fun meet ups with the other students and teachers.I couldnt recommend this school was the best part of my month in Cartagena.
Peter Panier: I took a Spanish course in February and March with Jader for 2 weeks. I can highly recommend this school. Their concept is a bit different then from other schools but amazing. I was every morning for 3 hours with Jader in the city of Cartagena and I learned a lot for that short time. It is a great mix between culture, some activities and of course to learn the language. Raices provide very good study material and they really know how to teach. I met also the other teachers and I can say they are all great. If you want to study Spanish in Colombia, go to RAICES!
Andrea: This school sets itself apart from any other school I've gone too. All the teachers are so warm and welcoming, and the initiative and effort they all put into the school is incredible. These are locals who really loves what they do, and works hard to offer a good product. Unlike other schools I've experienced who feels more like a money-machine who doesn't really care about YOU. I'm so impressed by them all. But especially I love the time I spent with my professor Estefany. She made me feel safe when attempting to speak, she tailored the classes to my level and my needs, and we had a lot of fun while learning. All classes were accompanied by a lot of laughter and usually a pastry or two. I love the combination the school offer of teaching you Spanish, but also about the Colombian culture. I went to classes with Estefany for about a month, and my Spanish has improved a lot!
Ruben Cantello: Love this school! all teachers are very friendly, and always giving you a big smile. What i like the most is how they give the class, very dynamic, so students can improve fast Spanish, and be able to talk with locals. Also is not just about learning the language, is also to learn the culture! they have a great Cartagenero heart, so as they like to teach they like to show the city, taking you to different events that's going on around. i definitely recommend this school, and i'm sure if you take class with them, you will end it up loving the language, and Cartagena as well.
Liam Bryce: A great place to learn spanish!
Sabrina Franz: I was surprised to see how my Spanish improved. Honestly I didn't had good experiences in other schools but the guys made me feel welcome :)
Katya Savenkova: Great school, teachers are the best!

Samuel Basler: Ecos-spanishschool is a perfect place to improve your Spanish in Cartagena. Super relaxed and professional teachers. I took great advantage of my private classes. Five star school!Regards, Samuel
Lukas Baumgärtel: Danke für alles! Ich hatte eine wirklich gute Zeit in der Schule. Die Lehrer waren alle sehr motivierend und das Programm war sehr abwechselungsreich. Ich glaube , ich konnte mein Spanisch verbessern. 👍
Ramon Hegi: Sehr gute Schule um Spanisch zu lernen. Dank den superkompetenten Lehrerinnen kann ich nach zwei Wochen genug Spanisch zum rumreisen. Highlights waren die Kulturellen Aktivitäten, die Tanzkurse und am besten haben mir die Kochstunden gefallen.Danke für die tolle Zeit in Cartagena!
Faria 01082084: Olá,Minha experiência na Escola ECOS foi maravilhosa.Tudo poderia se limitar a competência acadêmica, mas claro, foi muito além disso.O ambiente é maravilhoso, todos extremamente simpáticos e amáveis, com dinâmicas e atividades extracurriculares que nos dão a oportunidade de conhecer a linda e maravilhosa Cartagena de Índias, sob o olhar de quem lá vive.Recomendo muito.Muito obrigado ECOS.Rodrigo e Ana Paula – Brasil.
Cees Crumb: I spent three weeks here, (one of them I stayed with a family) and have really enjoyed myself. Teachers and facilities that you would expect from a German accredited school. Staying with a family just added another dimension to the experience. They match you with a family that suits.The lessons were well structured and I enjoyed learning with my 3 other classmates. The extra curriculum activities were fun. I feel I understand South America a little better and especially this little corner of Colombia. Thank you Team ECOS
scott Woodward: I have had a really enjoyed my three weeks at Ecos-spanish school in Cartagena. I have learned so much in a short time. The teachers are very skilled and make learning fun. Having a basic skill of speaking and understanding Spanish has definitely made it easier and more interesting to travel in Colombia. Muchas gracias Victoria and Team!
Sigrid Rüffert: ECOS bietet eine sehr interessante Kombination von Sprach- und Tanzschule mit vielen interessanten zusätzlich angebotenen Aktivitäten über soziale Projekte, Sport, Sightseeing an. Der Unterricht ist sehr gut und auf individuelle Bedürfnisse abgestimmt, abwechslungsreich, lustig und mit großartigen Lehrern. Getsemaní und das historisches Zentrum können bequem zu Fuß erobert werden. Die Schule hat mir ermöglicht, innerhalb von 7 Tagen sehr viel zu lernen und viele sehr unterschiedliche Dinge erleben zu können. Darüber hinaus war die Gastfreundschaft meiner Gastfamilie überwältigend. Die dringen notwendige Versorgung von Grundschülern mit einfachstem Unterrichtsmaterial in einem Armenviertel im Rahmen eines Sozialprojektes und deren Verteilung vor Ort bei Señora Lorenza hat mich nachhaltig beeindruckt und mir einmal wieder vor Augen geführt, wie wichtig und unabdingbar es ist, mit einfachen und geringen Mitteln direkte Hilfe vor Ort zu leisten.
Aymen Gha: It was a pure pleasure. The whole team is amazing and I met many great students from different parts of the world. I highly recommend the dancing classes too. The school offers many extra group activities in the city. Charming people! I will be back in couple of months 😉
Jacqueline Z: A great place to learn Spanish! The staff is phenomenal.
Adam Poloczek: ECOS ist eine hervorragende Sprachschule. Die Schule habe ich Ende November 2022 für zwei Wochen besucht.Der Unterricht ist sehr gut und ich habe viel in der Zeit gelernt. Neben Unterricht gibt es noch zusätzliche Aktivitäten wie verschiedene Touren, Kochen, Tanzen oder Interaktionen.Bei der nächsten Möglichkeit werde ich an Schule weitermachen.Ich hatte eine großartige Zeit.Mucho gracias equipo ECOS
Engine Room: A fantastic experience. Three weeks of study and fun! I can’t thank the Team of teachers here enough for starting me on my Spanish journey 😁
steve: This is a very good spanish school.I spent a month there and had a wonderful time. The school is well organized. The staff is nice, the teachers are professionals, the activites very cool and always on time. I also had private dance lessons with Francis (una chica 😉 very kind).Something very nice is the air conditioning in the school because it can get really hot depending the time of the year.I decided to stay with a host family chosen by the school and it was clean and confortable and they were very nice.The localisation is perfect. 10 minutes walk and you're in the neighborhood of Getsemani with its magical atmosphere with bars and restaurants.So if you want to improve your spanish and live a cultural experience meeting other students from different countries, I recommend this school without hesitation.Steve, 52 from Canada.
Lucy Golding: I would highly recommend Ecos as your choice of school. The teachers are excellent and they take the time to make sure you fully understand what is being taught. There are free activities 3 times a week where you can learn more Spanish, find out about the local culture, and interact with other students. At the end of each week you have an interactive session with the other students, in which you play games to improve your vocabulary. If I ever come back to Cartagena I would definitely return to Ecos.
Adriana Frazao: Exelente escola!! Pessoal muito amável e atencioso!! Cuidam com muito carinho de todos! Professore nativos e com muita didática! Varias atividades extra classes variadas!! Escola perfeita!
Christoph Körner: Die Sprachschule befindet sich im Zentrum von Cartagena. Nah an der Altstadt und neben Getsemani. Die Lehrer sind alle sehr motiviert und man lernt in kurzer Zeit sehr schnell. Vorab gibt es einen Test, um das eigene Level festzustellen. Vormittags sind dann gemeinsame Stunden mit bis zu 4 anderen Schülern. Am Nachmittag wenn gewünscht dann Einzelunterricht. Super saubere Räumlichkeiten, tolle Aktivitäten 3x wöchentlich am Nachmittag und super Mitarbeiter. Klare Empfehlung an alle, die spanisch lernen wollen.
Ayako Dumont: Je suis actuellement en voyage de 6 mois en Amérique du sud et je souhaitais prendre une semaine de cours d'espagnol pour avoir quelques bases car je n'ai jamais appris auparavant. ECOS m'a donné quelques bases pour pouvoir ensuite apprendre plus sur le terrain.Les professeurs et les cours étaient top. Cependant je recommande ce programme plus pour ceux qui veulent apprendre l'espagnol avec un bonne base grammaticale et pas forcément pour être opérationnel rapidement.Merci à vous pour cette super semaine. C'était très cool !
Ju: Tolle Sprachschule! Es ist eine kleine und sehr familiäre Schule mit guten und motivierten Lehrern. Zu Beginn wird ein Einstufungstest gemacht und dann werde entsprechende Gruppen gebildet. Besonders gut haben mir die kulturellen Aktivitäten wie Bachata Kurs und Kochstunde gefallen. Freitags gab es für alle Schüler eine gemeinsame Stunde, die viel Spaß gemacht hat. Für deutsche Arbeitnehmer vielleicht noch interessant: die Schule wird für Bildungsurlaub anerkannt. Ich kann sie sehr empfehlen und komme bestimmt wieder!!
Andrea Castañeda Nomelin: I had a wonderful time at Ecos. Everyone was very kind and helped me with everything! Vale la pena!!!
Victoria Mestre: Excelent school. Professional teachers and you can take also dancing lesson, cooking lessons and one tour with your Spanish lessons.
Sha Taheri: Going to the Ecos spanishschool was the best thing we did. The staff are very professional and great teacher and as well very kind and caring. I could never imagine learning so much in only one week. Thank you so much everyone who works at Ecos. I highly recommend this school in Cartagena. It's worth going there just for this experience.In addition to the classes, everyday we had supplemental activities that supported our learning to speak Spanish and practice with local people. The family Ecos found for us to stay at was wonderful people. We live them and still keep in touch. They spent lots of time with us at meals and after school to practice our speaking skills. It was an amazing experience. Muchas gracias.

Jennifer Muñoz: Excellent language school, with the best staff at your service.
Maria Carrillo: Given that I am not able to carry out my satisfaction survey due to time, I want to take advantage of this space to congratulate the teacher Olga Osorio, she is an excellent teacher, even complying with the exact methodology implemented by the alliance, she is a professional who strives to maximum to create security in his student, he made the necessary corrections for me to pronounce the words correctly because a good and easy listening depends on this, I believe that his dynamism, creativity and demand make the student reach the objective, the correct organization of his times, allowed me to constantly participate in conversations to develop my speaking and listening in a very active way, because it is one of the things I hope for. Thank you very much, it was a month full of much learning. I hope they get this message to her because not everyone 🌎 works with as much passion and love as she does and they are things that should be highlighted.

Letra Caribe: what do users think?
Princess Walsh: I was in Cartagena for about a year and wouldn't have been there that long if it weren't for Gustavo. He was, and is, an amazing teacher! He made sure that I applied what I learned in his classroom to the energetic streets of Cartagena. My comprehension of the Spanish language really grew just after a few classes. He has an in depth understanding of teaching and adult learning principles. My struggle was tenses and conjugation, as well as learning common words/phrases- I took Spanish in high school, but we all know how that goes lol. Gustavo gave me the confidence and literal words to help me improve my Spanish and enjoy my experience in Cartagena. I had a great time connecting with his other students who were only there for short amounts of time and those who living there for a couple years on work contracts. So happy to have met him- I learned so much!!
Shin Sode: It was really fun! I was super beginner of Spanish but got dramatic improvement, thanks to considerate and professional teachers. I will keep learning Spanish definitely!
Lisa Rosano: Gustavo is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had! His Spanish classes are dynamic and engaging. I learned more in a few days with Gustavo than I thought possible. He is amiable and presents information clearly and simply. He can work with your schedule and is willing to meet students in small groups and individually.I vacationed in Cartagena and included some Spanish classes in the trip. I looked forward to classes; they were a lot of fun and I was able to apply what I learned in lovely Colombia. I felt more confident speaking Spanish and practicing. I am inspired to keep on working on my language studies. Thank you!!!
Laura Chaumont: To all people who ask me where I learnt to speak Spanish (in 4 weeks!): Gustavo is behind this! I probably had good predispositions (knowing another Latin language) but here is what is excellent about Gustavo: he reads you and adapts his style, speed, and content to you! I had 4 hours of classes a day and Gustavo was very flexible in terms of schedule.I told him I was super serious about learning, wanted an intensive programme, and homework kept me busy every evening!Classes are focused on speaking whilst working on new vocabulary and grammar. The view from the classroom is breathtaking by the way - can be distracting at times ;)Gustavo is also simply a great soul and I was often invited to join him and his friends at dinners, drinks, etc: he really does care about his students and their experience in Cartagena and Colombia.I can only recommend Gustavo and Letra Caribe - I would not be at the Spanish level I am at today if it were not for him.100%!
LeeAnn Ungar: I took a month long trip to Colombia in December 2018 and decided for my first week that I would take Spanish lessons somewhere and i'm so glad that I chose Letra Caribe in Cartagena. Gustavo and his sister are fantastic teachers who plan lessons according to your skill level and they really boost your confidence level in speaking the language too. I was also lucky to be in a small group class with two other girls with a similar skill level as me. The classes don't feel like typical classes from a text book because you are speaking so much and talking about your own experiences (in Spanish!) that it just feels like you are having conversations with friends. I had basic travel knowledge of Spanish before I started classes and after one week I could confidently have full conversations with locals which added immensely to my trip as a whole. The value is excellent and I'm considering travelling back to Cartagena just for another week of lessons in the future. Cheers!
John Rothschild: This is my fifth time studying Spanish with Gustavo, of Letracaribe, doing “viviendo espanol” or living Spanish. This is a type of Spanish in which we explore the culture of Cartagena and meet all kinds of people while talking Spanish. Gustavo also speaks fluent English so he helps with any translation problems.We visited different barrios and explored life there. Also, we were able to experience some poets and culture in the making with visits to different institutions.At night, Gustavo and I met for dinner with his friends, many who also speak English. So in addition to Spanish during the day, I was able to have interesting contact with some of Gustavo's friends at night.I strongly recommend Gustavo if you are looking for a Spanish teacher. Even though I did “viviendo espanol”, Gustavo also teaches from a classroom. He is an extremely interesting and fun person to do Spanish with and if you are in Cartagena, there is no better person as your contact.
Ryne Sweeney: Gustavo is great. Any level he is genuine, friendly, and thoroughly knowledgable in English and of course Spanish. Lessons go quick and he makes it easy to learn. Whenever Im in Cartagena I take lessons with him. His events are great too. We went to spots only a Cartagenero would know. Highly recommended!
Toni R: Taking classes at Letra Caribe has been the highlight of my trip to Cartagena. If you need some Spanish practice whether you are beginner or advanced/staying in Cartagena for a week or a month, go to this school!!! Not only has my Spanish and confidence with speaking significantly approved in 1 week, but Gustavo and his sister are excellent teachers and tailor the clases based on YOUR needs. The scheduling is super flexible/accommodating, and the pricing is extremely affordable for the quality of these classes. I have taken many language classes in the past and this school has by far been the best I've ever experienced. Couldn't recommend them more
w koz: Letra Caribe is and amazing Spanish school I would recommend it to anyone who is considering Spanish lessons in Colombia.This is a small family run language school in a great location right next to colorful Calle 31 with good value restaurants and bars. Gustavo and his sisters are fantastic teachers, they adapt to your skill level and challenge you appropriately to get the best learning outcome. I had very limited time in Cartagena but wanted to squeeze in as much as possible so following a free assessment of my Spanish via Skype, Gustavo created a bespoke program of private lessons to work with the limited time I had. I would have 2 2-hour classroom sessions at a time followed by a 2-hour afternoon exploration lesson where the teacher would take me to a local market or a disadvantaged children foundation. This was really great as we practiced lots of conversation in Spanish whilst exploring Cartagena and the local culture at the same time. The school also arranged a home stay for me with a lovely family 20 minutes walk away so I was able to practice conversion with them as well outside of school. The costs of the lessons were really good value and it was easy to communicate with Gustavo via e-mail or Whatsapp ahead and during my stay in Cartagena.
Dileepan Siva: Gustavo is an exceptional teacher - from our first conversation, he made me realize how much more Spanish I knew than I had originally thought. He grounds his teaching in personal experience, which I now understand is the way everyone actually learns a language. For the first time in my life, I’ve overcome my fear of learning a second language. Highly recommend!
Tom V: Gustavo is an excellent teacher, perhaps the best teacher I have ever had. The lessons were tailored to our ability and were very effective at pushing our understanding forwards. We had 20 hours of lessons - we improved our Spanish a lot, and really enjoyed them at the same time. Highly recommended.
Floyd Garnett: I stayed in Cartagena an extra week to undertake some Spanish lessons with Gustavo (14 hours), hoping to give myself a foundation to speak some basic Spanish on the remainder of my trip. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, Gustavo was a great teacher and really helped me a lot. I achieved exactly what I wanted and enjoyed the experience and the challenge of learning a new language.Highly recommended!
Albin Eck: Gustavo is an incredible teacher capable to pinpoint your difficulties, give you guidance in understanding the mechanics behind them, therefore making you earn a considerable amount of autonomy along with a capacity to self-analyze. His knacks have nothing to do with any rigid grammar lesson you could have seen in academic books. If, as me, you started with books, you will realize how much his witty teaching can adds up to your game. I've been self-taught for years because this way always panned out for me, but Gustavo spirited method did make a considerable difference in a very limited time (2 classes/day during 1 week) and my level of proficiency undoubtedly notched up.Gustavo cunning abilities will drive you straight on the road to progress and self-confidence. He is passionate about his job and you will feel it every minute of your class with him. Flexible with one's schedule and learning capacity, he is also full of individual qualities and good streaks that contribute in making him the great teacher he is.
Les Jensen: I studied at Letra Caribe for 7 weeks. It was a fantastic experience. The teachers at the school were amazing and easy to talk with. The Living Spanish program is an excellent opportunity to see and experience Spanish outside of the classroom. The location of the school is convenient. I recommend Letra Caribe.I studied at Letra Caribe for seven weeks. The teachers are amazing. The location of the school is excellent. The Living Spanish program was an excellent experience. I recommend Letra Caribe.
Martin D: I've had private classes with Gustavo for the past week. It has been an excellent experience.Gustavo met me to assess my level and since then our lessons have been focused on the main areas where I need to improve.I've found the classes to be the perfect mix of targeted learning combined with good fun. I'd definitely recommend Letra Caribe to others.
Natasha Khade: I recommend Letra Caribe 100% for anyone who wants to improve their Spanish regardless of what level they are at. I lived in Cartagena for three months, and when I first got there I did not speak a word of Spanish. I was on the lookout for a Spanish school, and Letra Caribe was highly recommended by a friend who was a local of the city. When I first spoke to Gustavo, he asked that I meet with me first so that he could get a sense of what I wanted to achieve through the Spanish classes. After understanding my reasons for wanting to learn the language, I began to take class with Gustavo for a month. He was able to understand my learning style and would design classes based on how I picked up the material. I cannot remember any class with him being boring. He came up with a number of different activities (e.g. movie night, games) so as to maximize my exposure to the language. Gustavo also connected me to a number of locals with whom I could practice my newly obtained language skills. Gustavo has a way of making his students feel comfortable with the material and provides them with a safe place to practice. Gustavo is a gifted teacher and I am very happy with my decision to study at Letra Caribe.
Daniel Malone: Studying Spanish with Gustavo at Letra Caribe as a complete beginner was genuinely one of the best decision I made - I was speaking from day 1. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn or develop their Spanish.I arrived in Cartagena knowing I wanted to spend the first 2 weeks learning spanish before travelling South America for 5 months, so I searched online, found some Spanish schools, and visited each the day arrived. The first two schools I visited I would describe as generic, both simply handed me a menu with prices, offering group classes and 121 tuition - neither spent any time to question or understand my requirements. Afterwards, I met with Gustavo at Letra Caribe, who invited me to his office and spent 20 minutes with me going through options, finding out more about me, and also offering suggestions for accommodation, homestay and Couchsurfing groups, even before I decided to study with him. This meeting made my decision to study with Gustavo easy: we agreed 4 hours per day 121, starting the next day, with 2 different teachers - 2 hours grammar & vocabulary and 2 hours speaking, with a much needed break in between - all for an extremely reasonable price. Gustavo’s focus on enabling me to communicate and express myself meant by the end of the first week I could speak with locals, sometimes in Spanglish, where I practiced my Spanish and they their English - it was an awesome experience. I also met other students of Gustavo, who had relocated to Cartagena, and noticed they could all speak fluently and with confidence which was great to see. I thought it was great how Gustavo developed strong relationships with his students and encouraged them to me each other in the evening for social activities too. In summary, you won’t regret studying spanish with Gustavo at Letra Caribe, he is a great guy, a patient but challenging teacher and now a good friend.
Cara Bray: We are a couple who had three private lessons with Gustavo. We found these sessions to be really beneficial for the start of our trip in South America. Gustavo was enthusiastic, patient and went out of his way to help us, not only with Spanish but also recommending places and putting us in contact with others. Excellent and enjoyable to learn, would definitely recommend and use again!!
Lonneke: Gustavo is an excellent teacher: patient, intelligent and punctual. His classes are fun and well-structured. He helped me prepare for the DELE C1 exam.
Anna gruszczyńska: I took intensive classes with Gustavo for one week and I made incredible progress. Gustavo boosted my confidence and showed me that I can speak Spanish. Besides that he is a very sweet and interesting person. It was great experience. Thank you!
Saskia Nauenberg Dunkell: Letra Caribe is an amazing place to learn Spanish! My language skills improved in leaps and bounds with Gustavo, and I had lots of fun in the process. This is the best place to quickly become more fluent in Spanish while meeting new friends, learning about Colombia, and having an awesome time in Cartagena. Whether you need help with basic conversations or you want to develop more professional vocabulary, Gustavo tailors his lessons to each student’s needs. He’s dedicated to excellent teaching, and it makes all the difference. 5 stars for his school, I highly recommend it!
