Spanish in Medellín
ADULT STUDY ABROAD
Four Weeks in Colombia
The four-week Spanish in Medellín Sojrn is a true slow-travel experience that offers the structure of planned and optional activities but leaves most of each week open for independent exploration and flexible work time. The focus is on strengthening your Spanish language skills through immersive social and cultural activities that offer an insider’s experience of life in Colombia. The curriculum builds on our two-week Spanish in Colombia chapter. You’ll have a weekly one-on-one private session with a language tutor and two to three planned activities each week. The four-week Spanish in Medellín is set at a leisurely pace, ideal for people who want to live like a local during their adult study abroad.

GOOD TO KNOWS
Medellín Chapter Notes
You should expect a moderate level of physical activity with lots of walking.
Taxis in the city are very efficient.
Chapter classes are located 15 minutes walking from the accommodation.
Medellín is a very hilly city and the route from your accommodation to the main strip in Poblado is down a large hill.
Cash is still dominant in Colombia. We recommend withdrawing pesos at the airport upon arrival.
Most locals do not know English, so be prepared to practice that Spanish!
