Overlooking the city from a hill, in front of a park that invites you to relaxation after class, our partner school has 5 beautiful bright classrooms. A common area with computers and Wi-Fi as well as a kitchen is at the students’ disposal. A garden with a small swimming pool sets the scene for meeting other students. The teachers, all qualified and committed, teach their mother tongue in a playful way, based on the interests of the students and by combining it with cultural and historical elements of the country. Your teacher will review the progress you made every 15 days. About 20 minutes away from the city centre, you will make the most of a school that favours interaction amongst its students!

Der spielerische Zugang ( Quiz Ratespiele etc. ) zum erlernen einer neuen Sprache hat den Kurs sehr kurzweilig gemacht. Auch landestypische Gegebenheiten und auch soziale Aspekte machen die Schule sehr sympathisch. Die Schule schaut auf die Sicherheit Schüler bzw. gibt praktische Tipps und Verhaltensweisen weiter. Sehr lebendig und praxisnaher Umgang. Die Gastfamilie war außerordentlich hilfsbereit und fast überbesorgt in was die Sicherheit betraf.

Ich würde imner wieder nach Kolumbien reisen, um dort Spanisch zu lernen. Es ist ein vielfältiges und spannendes Land. Die Schule in Medellin war super. Klasse motivierte und lustige Lehrer, die auch die Kultur vermittelt haben. Die Lage mit Poblado ist auch optimal um anschließend noch auszugehen. Das Aktivitäten Programm der Schule war abwechslungsreich und mit einmaligen Erfahrungen, zB Fussball spielen mit Kids aus der comune 13. Die Unterkunft war direkt in der Schule, daher kurze Wege, länger schlafen, Pool, schöne Gegend und leckeres Frühstück. Kochkurs, Tanzkurs, Fussball spielen, Fußballspiel anschauen, Museum, Park... Wünsche wurden berücksichtigt. Top!

Great school with a familiar atmosphere, good teachers and with a lot of organised activities. Great teachers who use many different methods of teaching. Good at creating a relaxed environment in the classroom, but I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the lessons. The school organized activities almost every day, including the weekends. Great salsa and cooking classes, voluntary work and visits to museums are a few examples. Makes you feel like a part of the school and the city. Amazing school. Everything went smoothly in terms of information and preparation by Esl as well. Great service from my contact at esl.

Medellin was a beautiful city. I would definitely recommend ESL and the affiliated school Nueva Lengua in Medellin to others. Great experience Señora González was very friendly and patient with us speaking Spanish. Meals were great. Would recommend Clases de baile! Highly recommend

Host family
For an immersion in the daily life of the country’s culture, the best option is to live with a family in Medellin! You will receive a warm welcome from your hosts and you will be accommodated in a single room with half board. The other rooms of the accommodation (bathroom, living room, etc.) will be shared with the family. A permanent exchange will come out of this daily contact and you will improve your language skills on a daily basis. The families live on average 15 minutes away from the city centre and it will take you 20-30 minutes by foot to go to the school.

Residence
In the school building, you will live in a room with 4 beds with 3 other students of the same gender (ensuite bathroom). Besides the advantage of sparing you the commuting to school, this option offers the possibility to prepare your meals in the school’s kitchen.

The leisure programme that is offered by the school includes cultural visits, recreational activities and excursions to touristic sites. 5 hours of cultural activities (museums, concerts, natural parks, beaches, hikes, markets, etc.) per week are included in the package, as well as one hour of dancing and cooking lessons on a weekly basis. A guided tour of an area of Medellin will show you the incredible transformation undergone by your host city.
Be swept off your feet by the rhythm of salsa with other students or learn how to cook a Colombian dish – you will practice your Spanish in a laid-back environment and you will enjoy the many things there are to do in this city that will certainly dazzle you!
