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.

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.

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.
