Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war sehr gut! Die Schule bietet jeden Tag kulturelle aktivitäten an sowie ein "Tasting" von lokalen Spezialitäten jeden Mittwoch und Freitag. Wie an den meisten Sprachschulen waren sehr viele Schweizer und Deutsche anwesend, was es etwas schwierig machte sich darauf zu konzentrieren nur Spanisch zu sprechen. Die Schule verfügt über einen Pool, welcher jedoch sehr selten genutzt wird. Es ist je nach Lernvortschrit möglich ein Level zu wiederholen oder zu überspringen. Das Kursmaterial ist sehr gut und die Lehrer gehen auf individuelle Wünsche nach Themengebieten ein. Die meisten der angebotenen Aktivitäten sind gratis uns sehr interessant (Tanzkurs, Kochkurs, Bowiling, Mangroven-Tour, Museumsbesuch).

Die Schule ist optimal gelegen und verfügt über im Erdgeschoss über eine Küche und eine Toilette. Alle Klassenzimmer sind klimatisiert und verfügen ebenfalls über eine Toilette. In der Pause kann zu einem sehr günstigen Preis ein Obstteller gekauft werden; Kaffee sowie Wasser stehen in der Küche kostenlos zur Verfügung. Zudem besteht die Möglichkeit, ein leckeres Mittagessen zu einem ebenfalls günstigen Preis an der Schule einzunehmen. Wie generell bei solchen Sprachaufenthalten waren viele Schweizer und Deutsche vorhanden, was ich jedoch aufgrund der doch grossen Vielzahl anderer Nationalitäten (England, USA, Frankreich, Belgien, Brasilien, Australien, Schweden) nicht als störend empfand. Gearbeitet wird vorwiegend mit Übungsblättern, die von den Lehrern zu Beginn der Stunde ausgeteilt werden. Einziger Kritikpunkt ist hier, dass die Schule allenfalls noch Schreibzeug und leere Blätter zusätzlich zu ihren Übungsblättern zur Verfügung stellen könnte. Ansonsten waren die Dynamik und der Kontakt mit den Lehrkräften ausgezeichnet - mit einigen pflege ich auch nach meinem Sprachaufenthalt Kontakt. Sie stehen einem stets für Fragen aller Art zur Verfügung und die Atmosphäre ist sehr familiär. Die Stimmung in meiner Klasse (insgesamt vier Schüler aus der Schweiz, Deutschland, USA und England) war stets sehr aufgeschlossen, freundlich und willkommend. Ich habe mich für den Aufenthalt bei einer Gastfamilie entschieden, weil ich bei meiner ersten alleinigen Reise nach Südamerika stets eine Ansprechperson vor Ort haben wollte. Die mir zugeteilte Gastfamilie war ausgezeichnet. Ich habe schon im Vorfeld Kontakt zu meiner Gastmutter aufgenommen und sie über meine Anreise informiert. Ich wurde entsprechend pünktlich am Flughafen abgeholt. Ich verfügte über ein eigenes Zimmer sowie ein eigenes Bad. Das Haus ist typisch kolumbianisch eingerichtet und befindet sich in einem sehr sicheren und ruhigen Viertel Cartagenas. Vor allem aus Bequemlichkeitsgründen (in Cartagena ist es schon früh morgens sehr heiss) habe ich zur Schule hin und wieder zurück ein Taxi genommen (ca. 8000 Pesos pro Fahrt, ca. 2.50 CHF). Der Weg kann jedoch auch sehr gut zu Fuss zurückgelegt werden (ca. 20 Minuten bis zur Schule). So ist auch eine von Cartagenas Sehenswürdigkeiten (Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas) kaum fünf Gehminuten von der Unterkunft entfernt. Die Gastfamilie war stets sehr freundlich und offen sowie hilfsbereit. Ich hätte mir keine bessere Gastfamilie für meinen Aufenthalt in Kolumbien vorstellen können. Vielen Dank für alles!

« Da ich bereits in der Schweiz zweieinhalb Jahre lang Spanisch-Unterricht hatte, ging es bei mir vielmehr um das Auffrischen meiner Kenntnisse als um ein erneutes Lernen. Mir ist es definitiv gelungen, meine bereits vorhandenen Kenntnisse aufzufrischen und zu vertiefen und zusätzlich habe ich viel neues Vokabular erlernt. »
School highlights
« Mir hat an Cartagena sowie an der Schule alles gefallen. Man muss sich natürlich bewusst sein, dass der Lebensstandard in Kolumbien ein anderer ist als vielerorts in Europa. Wenn man dies aber ist, spricht absolut nichts gegen einen tollen Aufenthalt in Cartagena. Insbesondere gefallen hat mir an der Schule, wie eng und freundschaftlich der Kontakt zwischen Lehrern und Schülern war. Zudem war die Atmosphäre insgesamt zwischen den Schülern ebenfalls stets sehr freundlich und offen. »
Top tips
« - einfach in Getsemani und der Altstadt rumlaufen und sich in ihren farbigen Strassen verlieren- Limonada de Coco und Jugo de Lulo trinken- Strand von Castillo Grande sowie Playa Blanca besuchen- in kolumbianischen Clubs (Taboo oder Farra) mit Einheimischen tanzen gehen- sich abends an der Plaza de la Trinidad treffen und den verschiedenen Strassenkünstlern zuschauen und Streetfood geniessen. »

Gute zentrale Lage im sicheren Stadtteil. Basic Infrastruktur, nicht sehr modern, aber erfüllt den Zweck. WC abgetrennt durch eine Trennwand im Klassenzimmer nicht ideal. Sehr nette Lehrer und viel Fokus auf dem Sprechen. Hätte lieber ein Lehrbuch gehabt als lose Blätter. Etwas mehr Input der Lehrkräfte, was die Theorie oder Übungen betrifft. Fokus auf dem Sprechen ist super, aber habe auch etwas den aktiven Input vermisst. Sprechen ist super aber evtl. nicht ein ganzer Morgen nur uns sprechen lassen, resp. Fehler aktiver korrigieren oder sagen, ah das macht ihr viel falsch, wir repetieren das. Geben sich viel Mühe und kamen auch fast täglich mit einer lokalen Spezialität kurz in den Klassen vorbei. Sehr herzlicher Empfang am Montag mit gratis Begrüssungsessen und nützlichen Informationen. In den Pausen hat man auch die Möglichkeit Früchte zu kaufen (Fruchtsalat) oder ein Mittagessen in der Schule zu essen (günstig und gute Qualität).Viele Aktivitäten sind auch gratis.

Nueva Lengua, Cartagena
Duration: 16 weeks

I have been living in Cartagena and studying Spanish for 3 weeks. I am happy to be able to spend time in this beautiful city. Every day, I go to the school to learn Spanish. I’ve significantly improved my language skills as I put everything I learn in class into practise with my friends and at home. My classmates are friendly and interesting. The teacher is intelligent and very nice, just like the other students. We usually go out together to party and make the most of Cartagena. Last week, we visited white sandy beaches, I loved it. Now I am a bit blue because some of my friends had to go back home, their stay was quite short. As for me, I’m staying here for another two or three months.

Nueva Lengua, Cartagena
Duration: 4 weeks

It had been a few years since I wanted to go to Colombia and combining this project with a language stay seemed to be the best idea. I chose Cartagena because I wanted to go on holiday and the sea had to be part of the setting! When I arrived at the Nueva Lengua school I received a warm welcome and I was treated accordingly during my whole stay. The classes were very interesting, but also very entertaining and gripping. With the intensive course, you enjoy the first lesson best, as only one or two students attended most of the time. During my stay, I considerably improved my Spanish skills, due also to the fact that I lived with a very nice host family! In the afternoon, we had the choice between at least 3 various activities in which all the students participated – big fun guaranteed! The city of Cartagena offers a lot of attractions and it is the ideal point of departure for excursions on the weekend I can only warmly recommend the school and the city of Cartagena but one has to be aware that we are on the Caribbean coast of Colombia and that life here is filled with comfortable tranquillity.

Nueva Lengua, Cartagena
Duration: 8 weeks

When I arrived in Cartagena, I felt lost and lonely. I therefore recommend all those who go on a linguistic stay to organise an airport transfer. Yet, I felt right away at home when I arrived in my host family. The mum of my host family is an extraordinary woman and I was very surprised to even find a private bathroom, only for me! The first day at school was very exciting and a bit chaotic, but there was a big improvement in the organisation during the first 8 weeks. The Nueva Lengua school was a good choice as it has constantly improved the critical points to develop in the right direction. The teachers are super qualified and help the students, in extracurricular areas as well. I strongly recommend going on a language trip to Cartagena, because it is a very safe destination with an excellent leisure offer. Women should nonetheless be wary of the charming Latinos who tend to exaggerate everything. In conclusion I can say that this was a wonderful experience for me and that I will do my next language stay with ESL again, the service, the price and the quality were perfect.

Host family
Latin America is a dream location for learning Spanish in an environment which is a complete change of scenery. If you stay with a host family, you will have the ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in the Colombian culture. The families are chosen carefully by our partner schools and are situated around 15 minutes from the language school. They offer accommodation in a single room with half-board. They take care of your laundry once a week and provide you with a house key to enable you to be totally independent.

Apartments
Prices and information on request.

Discovering Cartagena and its surroundings during the outings planned by our partner school is an absolute must. Don’t miss the tour of the historic city, its ramparts, alleyways and other places of interest. As it is right beside the sea, you will also be able to enjoy its magnificent beaches, like those of the Corales del Rosario National Park and the Rosario Islands, which allow you to dive in and discover truly beautiful marine fauna. For a different type of excursion, you will be invited to slosh about in the mud baths of the Totumo Volcano at an altitude of only 30 metres above sea level! Cartagena and its surroundings are not to be missed.
