Speak Like a Local.

It is said that you can not truly understand a culture until you begin to understand its language. Learning Spanish in such a vibrant city will certainly be a powerful driver to have you speaking in no time!

 

Once Spanish classes are over, you’ll find yourself with plenty of time to enrich your experience by chatting with locals (called Paisas), tasting locally sourced, roasted and brewed specialty coffee, and practicing your Spanish with your Chaptermates.

Reliably Connect Anytime You Need.

If you will be working remotely while in Medellín, we’ve made sure to give you access to what you’ll need to get the job done. We have partnered with a local co-working space that can cater to a range of needs. Here you will find super fast wifi, plenty of outlets, and even private rooms in case you need to get some privacy or just spread out.

 

If you enjoy a little more hustle and bustle while working, you can check out our Sojrn Spaces - places you're always welcome to pop into to socialize, get some work done, or grab a bite to eat. Through our partnerships with local cafes and restaurants around Medellín, you'll be able to find your new favorite spot in no time!

Choose your stay.

The Spanish in Colombia Chapter has two accommodation options available for your choosing. Swipe to see examples of each.

  • Shared Housing - $3,499   |    A private bedroom in a shared apartment equipped with a shared kitchen, a dining table, Wi-Fi, and other modern amenities. Guests who book first are entitled to the main bedroom, which has an ensuite bathroom. The second bedrooms are slightly smaller and have bathrooms located directly outside their doors. 

  • Private Housing - $3,999 |  A private apartment equipped with kitchen space, a kitchen table, Wi-Fi, and other modern amenities.

Like most living spaces in Medellin, these apartments can vary significantly. All units are accessible via elevator and are equipped with fans and washing machines; some may have balconies, dryers, or other amenities.

PS: If you book private accommodations with someone (shared bed), the second person gets 50% off of their Sojrn.

Hablar y aprender.

With beautiful accents (and people), a lively social scene, and low cost of living - Medellin is the ultimate place to spend time improving your Spanish. Our month-long curriculum includes plenty of opportunities to practice what you are learning by immersing yourself in different experiences. While each week has a theme, living in Medellin will give you opportunities to speak as much Spanish as you want, on a range of different topics. All speaking levels are welcome.

"I participated in the Medellín Spanish in Colombia” chapter. We had a fantastic Sojrn host, Makayla, and local host, Juan Manuel. I loved the cultural exchanges, Spanish lessons, group trips and the food! It was wonderful meeting so many people who wanted to explore the wonderful city of Medellín just like me. A special recognition goes out to Makayla who always made sure everyone was comfortable, included and having a good time. I’d recommend for anyone wanting to make the most of travel while doing so safely."
