Spanglish Colombia

Fully immerse yourself in the Colombian culture and Spanish learning. We are a Spanish school for foreigners that offers an immersive experience in the local culture. Accommodation is in a beautiful and peaceful place nestled among the mountains. Classes are taught by professional and experienced teachers, and the meals are prepared with the delicious seasoning of a Colombian grandmother.
We are located just outside of Jericó, a 30-minute walk or a 10-minute tuk-tuk ride away. Our school is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of mountains and trees. In the mornings, you can breathe pure and fresh air, making it perfect for studying, reading, or practicing yoga while listening to the birds sing. the nights are quiet, with only the sounds of nature lulling you to sleep.
Moreover, Jericó is a charming and small town, just 2.5 hours southwest of Medellin. It enjoys an average temperature ranging from 14°C to 23°C (57°F to 73°F) and it is surrounded by green forests and mountains that hide beautiful views, rivers, and waterfalls. In addition, Jericó offers many activities that you can do in your free time. In the afternoons, you can go to the river, take nature walks, or go hiking to the marvelous "Las Nubes" viewpoint. Walking through the town itself is a magical experience, as Jericó has been of great importance in the economic and cultural development of the Antioquia department. This is why it's known as "La Atenas del Suroeste" (The Athens of the Southwest). Today, it has a great variety of museums and historical sites. In addition, its colonial architecture, streets, buildings, botanical garden, numerous churches, and central square make it a wonderful place to explore. It's also a designated "Pueblo Patrimonio" (heritage town) of Colombia since 2013. Not to forget, Jericó's gastronomy and coffee tradition are notable. It features a wide range of restaurants serving exquisite food, and its coffee is renowned as some of the best in Antioquia.

In the short time I was there it turned into a 2nd home, the whole family is so nice. You start the day with breakfast for everyone. Then time for spanish lessons and after that some volunteer work. But the work is that much. Then lunch together and after that you have the time for yourself. Go to the village or swim in the nearby river are some great ways to spend time.

The Spanglish exchange offered me a truly unique language experience that catered to my individual learning curves with remarkable finesse. Rafa excelled at adapting his teaching methods to suit my pace, providing a personalized and effective approach. He integrate Colombian culture into the classroom I was left with a confidence to go apply authentically amongst the community during our immersive activities. It allowed me further appreciate Colombia's traditions, customs, and vibrant way of life. With my deepest gratitude. Thank you Rafa, Olga, and the rest of the Spanglish familia!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Spanglish! The house is super comfortable with plenty of space to relax and a well-equipped kitchen, and I love the location up the hills from the lovely center of Jericó. I have improved in my Spanish through the classes and conversations. The volunteer tasks are clearly communicated and pretty minimal. Rafa and Olga are wonderful hosts, and I recommend the experience to anyone looking for a tranquil place to practice their Spanish!
