From the heights of the Andes to the hum of the big cities, the colours of colonial casas to the rousing sway of cumbia, Colombia is a country of vivacious cultures, striking contrasts and complex histories. With tropical landscapes and bustling towns full of fun-loving locals, studying Spanish in this vibrantly diverse South American nation is an experience of a lifetime.
The capital city and central point of Colombia is Bogotá, which soars at a height of nearly 2,600 metres. At its core is the historic district of La Candelaria, home to beautiful cobbled streets, pretty Spanish style buildings, and better still, International House Bogotá.
With a range of Spanish classes available, along with an exciting selection of specialist courses combining language skills with the likes of eco-tourism and salsa dancing, IH Bogotá allows students immerse themselves in the local language and culture. Find out more about the school below.
