Learn Spanish in Colombia

Sojrn’s two- and four-week Medellín Chapters are curated for you to strengthen your language skills while you experience the everyday life of Colombians. Tucked into the Aburrá Valley and surrounded by the Andes, the City of Eternal Spring is known by many for the genuine warmth of its people. 

With a group of Chaptermates, you’ll head out on guided tours through the terraced hills of rural coffee plantations and labyrinth alleyways of urban districts as you learn Spanish. Optional out-of-town weekend getaways will take you to spectacular mountain peaks and tropical beaches. Your Spanish in Medellín curriculum provides endless opportunities to practice your language skills while learning about the people, history, and culture in Colombia.

“Sojrn taps into an audience willing to trade weeklong vacations for extended experiences that blend work, life and exploration.”





The City of Eternal Spring

In Medellin, you’ll set out on foot past colorfully painted buildings to cooking classes, tutoring sessions, arts and music tours, and salsa nights. 

You’ll have conversations with Paisas, or locals, as you get to know your neighborhood and acclimate to the language, altitude, and climate. 

The conversations you hear and have during organized activities, market visits, and on day trips within the city and surrounding region will become a pathway to a deeper understanding of the Spanish language and Colombian way of life.

Life in Medellín


Through language and friendships

During your time in Colombia, you’ll meet up with Chaptermates at local cafes, bars, and restaurants. 

Together, you’ll share meals and explore the rich flavors of Medellín cuisine including Bandeja Paisa, Ajiaco, Chicharrón, and Arepas. 

During happy hours, salsa classes, group lunches, and shared meals you’ll have plenty of opportunity to practice your developing Spanish language skills while enjoying your growing connection with the community.



Enhance your Spanish skills


Through everyday interactions with locals and Chaptermates you’ll practice Spanish and the local dialect of Medellín, best known as Paisa.

You’ll learn to ask questions, order food, hire transportation, and have engaging conversations with new friends with confidence.

Paisa is what weaves together and connects the many threads of Medellín’s collectivist sociocultural fabric. As you develop your Spanish conversation and comprehension, you’ll also be learning more about regional history, cuisine, and culture.

“I had the most incredible experience with the Spanish in Medellín Sojrn chapter.  Sojrn provided so many recommendations and tips, and I felt like every detail was taken care of.  I was also impressed with how much was included (so many great activities on top of apartment and coworking) for the price. The planned and recommended activities made sure our experience was the perfect blend of can’t miss tourist sites plus living like a local.”
