SPANISH WORLD INSTITUTE

'



SPANISH WORLD INSTITUTE
(SWI)  Ist eine Sprachschule, die
Schülern aus anderen Laendern die spanische Sprache beibringt, unabhängig
wieviel Vorkenntnisse sie mitbringen. Wir sind ein akademisches Institut, in
dem der Austausch mit anderen Schülern und das Kennenlernen von Kolumbianern
die bedeutendsten Methoden sind, um eine neue Sprache zu erlernen und in dem
ein Einblick in die Geheimnisse der alten kolumbianischen Kultur gewährt wird.

Im Spanisch World
Institute können die Schüler ihre Eindrücke austauschen und sich gegenseitig
in ihrem Lernerfolg helfen, sowie die zahlreiche Facetten unser
kolumbianischen Kultur und des Lebensstils kennenlernen.
 


Das Ziel
von  SWI ist, ein hochwertiges Programm anzubieten, bei
denen die Schüler einen optimalen Lernerfolg in Spanisch als Fremdsprache
erzielen. Der Intensivkurs G30 ist in Rheinland-Pfalz als Bildungsurlaub
anerkannt worden.

Anlagen

Unsere Sprachschule befindet sich im Stadteil
Chapinero Alto, einem der attraktivsten und zentral gelegenen
Wohngebiete in Bogotá. Der Unterricht findet in einem Haus im
kolonialem Baustil statt, das eigens für eine angenehme Lernatmosphäre
neu eingerichtet wurde, ohne dabei von seiner Originalität und Charme
einzubüssen.

SWI ist in der Nähe
der touristisch und kulturell interessanten Teile der Stadt und des
Geschäftszentrums. Darüber hinaus ist die Schule in der Nähe aller
Familienunterkünfte, Parks und Freizeiteinrichtungen, sowie zahlreicher
Geschäfte, Restaurants und Einkaufszentren. Zudem ist die Schule mit

Internetzugang und eine Bibliothek, in der sich in ein Selbststudium
vertieft werden kann und die Möglichkeit besteht Bücher auszuleihen..

FREIZEIT

SWI organisiert eine Bandbreite von

Aktivitäten beinhalten: Kneipentreffen, Filmabende und Partys,
Theaterbesuche, Konzerte, ins Restaurant gehen, sowie Teilnahme an
anderen Events wie Festivals, Sportereignisse und Besuch von Tanzclubs.
Diese Aktivitäten sollen die Teilnehmer dazu anregen, Kontakte auf
Spanisch zu knüpfen. Unsere Studenten können Mitglieder im SWI Meeting
Point werden – ein Verein, in dem Aktivitäten mit Einheimischen
organisiert werden, so dass Du über das SWI unsere Kultur aus erster
Hand erlebst und eine grossartige Möglichkeit hast, in diesem Umfeld
Freunde zu gewinnen und Dein Spanisch anzuwenden.
Visumsinformationen

bis zu sechs (6) Monaten in Kolumbien bleiben möchten, sollten nach
einem Besuchervisum bei der nächten kolumbianischen Botschaft oder im
Konsulat nachfragen.

    Unacceptable Abuse of Staff
    The director is constantly yelling at the staff in front of the students: one episode that happened just today was the director yelling at our teacher for shutting the classroom door during his class, and then she proceeded to fire him during our lunch hour. It sounds like the Institute doesn\'t provide contracts for their employees, so they have no protection against workplace abuse. Personally, I plan to just hire a private tutor, which at 20,000 pesos an hour is far cheaper for the student, yet still pays the teachers far more than the 1,200 pesos they\'re paid at the Institute. I do not plan to pay one more peso to the Institute, and I hope others refrain too until the management starts providing contracts to its workers so Colombia\'s worker protections would apply.

    Fantastic teachers, terrible management
    Let me preface this by stating that the teachers are wonderful. Very patient, very knowledgeable. It's a shame that the director doesn't respect them, because they are the only thing the school has going for it. The director often yells at the teachers, in front of the students or within earshot. I also witnessed her yelling at a student and threatening to kick them out for querying being overcharged. She is highly unprofessional. In regards to the classes, I was placed in a class with a group all more significantly advanced than I. I was an absolute beginner. It certainly hindered my learning and was frustrating for all involved, though the teachers were all wonderfully patient with me. Still, I didn't get as much out of the 2 weeks as I may have had I been in the correct class. In regards to accommodation, I stayed in the student apartment. It was lovely, but I found out while there that the director rented it out on AirBnb for half the price she charged us. We were ripped off. Also, they overbooked it one night and asked a student to vacate a day early, then refused to refund for the night. As she only accepts cash there is no recourse, and it seems once she has your money she doesn't care anymore. She forgets that the students are clients. I don't know whether it's greed or incompetence. If you have no dealings with her or nothing going wrong then you'd probably have a pleasant experience here with the teachers, but be warned, if things go wrong with the director prepare to be yelled at, and never refunded.

    great x
    One of my colleagues was here last year (July 2014) and recommended the program. I looked into several schools and decided to give this school a try and I´m really glad I did. As a Spanish teacher, I look for schools (I´ve been to many) that are going to challenge me at my level. Due to the size of the school and the personal touch of the director and the teachers, they worked with me to have a great experience here. If you´re looking for a school, take a look at what they have to offer. While I was here in Colombia, I went to Cartagena (Getsamani) and stopped by the other branch of the school they have there. I got the impression that it is run with the same personal touch as the school in Bogota. In addition, the area where the school is located has a lot of life. So, overall it was very positve experience.

    2015 a lot has changed
    After reading these reviews I must state that New World Institute in Bogota is not the same as in these old reviews. I do not want to be negative though I only want to warn you not to get trapped. I had attended only 2 days ending March 18, 2015 and realized that the director, also a teacher was completely disrespectful and dishonest with both her students and staff yelling at them at times. The environment was quite stressful. In the 2 days I attended my teacher who was excellent was fired, 2 students did not return because they were not happy. I had prepaid for a week and most of my tuition was not returned. One student had left the class room crying and the only other original student left in my class is leaving at the end of the week because he is dissatisfied. This sounds like too much to occur in 2 days but this all happened as I had witnessed it. Also beware they do not accept credit cards which means when they have your money you have no recourse. On a positive note the teacher I had was an excellent instructor. I had studied at several schools in Bogota for short periods of time but I chose this school because it was very close to where I was living. Please be careful, I was lucky I only got taken for about $130.00 but I spoke with several students at New World Institute who prepaid for several weeks and now are trapped or may potentially forfeit their tuition. I can recommend the following schools as I had attended them all and I did not experience anything similar to what I had mentioned above and they all accept credit cards: 1. Sergio Arboleda University 2. Universidad de La Saban 3. Escuela de Espanol Nueva Lingua. Check them out and do your homework. Good luck

    Highly Recomended
    I had a good experience at the SWI and learned a lot in a short amount of time. In fact, I was shocked at how much I have learned in only one week. Additionally, the activities that we had during the week were a lot of fun and allowed us to see different neighborhoods within Bogota. The staff is extremely professional and are able to immerse you in the language. I definitely plan on taking more classes the next time I am in Bogota.

    Not for serious students
    All of the professors are knowledgeable and very kind. The problem with this school is the lack of structure...they use photocopies from various books and you never know what material you will be covering each day. They also had a very tough time managing the different levels of the students and were very late every day.

    Buena Experiencia
    The teachers at SWI are very professional and well educated. Of the three Spanish language schools I´ve attended (others in Central America), the teachers here are more highly educated and able to explain Spanish grammer rules much more efficiently than teachers at the other schools. Additionally, they are all extremely personable and professional. I have enjoyed my time here and feel that after two weeks, I have improved my Spanish speaking skills.

    Business Spanish
    I met with Maria, the owner, to discuss about the potential options for individual courses. I was able to design the course and continuously adapt it to my needs for business level Spanish in Latin America. I had two different professors, interacted with other students, had the opportunity to participate in cultural activities and ultimately improve my Spanish. I recommend this school for people wanting to learn in an interesting manner.

    Spanish course
    I attended a week long course at the Spanish World Institute in February 2012 and found the school to be well-organised and friendly. I already had some Spanish knowledge, and the course was adapted to my needs. I felt I improved a lot over the week and that this was due to the high standard of teaching. I´d definitely recommend this school.

I searched around a bit for the right school and SWI was the best for me. In addition the break in the middle of the morning doesnt encroach on your study time!

    De afgelopen drie weken hier op SWI waren super. Van de georganiseerde pick up vanaf het vliegveld naar mn gastgezin, tot de culturele uitstapjes met de leraren op de vrijdagen. Drie weken geleden had ik nog nooit Spaans gesproken of ook maar een les gehad. Met grammatica in de ochtenden en volcabulary in de middagen kon ik al snel deze nieuwe taal gebruiken. Oefeningen, spelletjes, films, uitstapjes in en net buiten bogota, avonden uit met de andere leerlingen, allemaal leuk en een plrezier om op meerdere manieren te leren. Nu drie weken later ga ik verder met mn Zuid Amerika reis met een nieuwe taal op zak, dankzij deze goede, leuke en vooral

    My experience of SWI
    I have taken spanish classes in the evening in SWI and my experience in SWI was great. I was studing spanish as a part time student (betwen 2-6 hrs per week) as my work didn´t allow me to study spanish during the day. SWI was kind enough to accomodate me in their schedule. The quality of teaching in this institute is great, the professors give full attention to their students. I recommend this institute to anybody who would like to study spansih. Highly Recommended.

    I arrived in Colombia in August 2011 to work in a project. Soon i realized that not only i need Spanish for my job, but also to interact and to enjoy my time here. SWI gave me a lot of help by teaching me the basics of the language for both my work and also to enjoy this amazing country. All the teachers are more than qualified and they were more than pacient with me. The classes were well balanced, covering all my need. I had a wonderfull time here at SWI i hope others will enjoy as well. Thank you!

    !!
    My friend and I have been studying an intensive course at SWI for a little over a week, and the experience so far has been very exciting. Before we spoke barely enough Spanish to be polite tourists, let alone converse with people we met and experience the local culture in the way that we desired. But even after a week, we have learnt so much and our travels have been greatly enriched. The cirriculum is both rigorous and fun. The school is located in a central and safe neighbourhood, which is easily accessible by bus from Candelaria. The teachers are all very qualified and intelligent, as well as eager to help you get the most out of your travels. If I return to Colombia in the future, I hope that I will again have the opportunity to study here. Thank you!

    Spanish World Institute
    SWI is a fantastic school. The course we did was structured to our needs and the amount of time we had available. We were in a class of two for two weeks doing an intensive course (30h per week). It taught us the most important aspects of the language for our travel, and we were very quickly able to have very rewarding conversations with locals. The school had a very friendly environment - the teachers had coffee with us during the morning breaks and were happy to give advice about things outside of the curriculum too. Highly recommended.

    SWI has been extremely helpful in developing my language skills and making my time in Bogota enjoyable. This was the first time I had traveled alone out of the United States, and SWI has made the experience more comfortable by setting up a home stay with a wonderful family only two minutes from the school. I was very pleased with the progress I made in just one week. There is a great focus on grammar, but the most helpful part of the classes was the emphasis on conversation and speaking. I was very satisfied with my brief visit to SWI and Bogota and I highly recommend it to students.

    BOA METODOLOGIA
    Fiz 3 semanas de curso. Tive aulas pela manha e na parte da tarde fiz cursos alternativos, como espanhol para negocios e passeios. O curso tambem me ajudou a conhecer a cultura da Colombia e os princiais lugares de Bogotá. As turmas sao bem pequenas e os professores muito atenciosos. Foi bom aprender espanhol assim!

    Mi experiencia con el SWI
    El SWI es un buen instituto para aprender español en Bogotá. Aunque era bastante difícil conseguir el reconocimiento de mi pais (Bundesland) Berlín por los dos festivos en este tiempo. Pero juntos la amable directora y yo pudimos aclararlo a la autoridad. Muy bien son las muchas maneras diferentes de la clase. Hay clase en grupo tanto como privadas, con video y excursiones. Les puedo recomendar esta escuela, especialmente con educación continua (Bildungsurlaub).

    Meine Erfahrung an der SWI
    Meine Erfahrung an der SWI war ziemlich gut. Ich bin im Rahmen des Bildunsurlaub nach Bogota geflogen, um meine Spanish Sprachkenntnisse zu verbessern. Es war ein ziemlicher Kampf, die Genehmiging von meinem Arbeitsgeber (Hessen) zu bekommen. Aber da die Schule in einem anderen Land (Rheinland Pfalz) anerkannt wurde, hat es Gott sei Dank doch noch ganz gut geklappt. Obwohl ich mich fuer einen Gruppen Unterricht angemeldet hatte, wurde ich aufgrund meiner Einstufung separat und einzel unterrichtet. Fuer mich war das schon ein positives Zeichen dafuer, dass die Einstufung nicht pauschal stattgefunden hat, sondern dass wirklich auf die Faehigkeiten und Schwaeche des einzelnen eingegangen wurde. Die Unterrichte an sich fand ich gut und abwechslungsreich. Ich habe auch viel ueber die kolumbianische Kultur lernen koennen. Meine Grammatik hat sich innerhalb von 2 Wochen deutlich verbessert und mein Wortschatz hat sich gut erweitert. Ich kann nur diese Schule weiterempfehlen.

    Review SWI
    I spent 3 weeks learning Spanish at SWI on the intensive (30 hours per week) course. I found the teachers to be professional, patient, and adaptive to my learning needs. We studied a range of interesting and varied topics using a range of methods and materials which I found stimulating and helpful. The school is well located and the classes were small. However the school could benefit from a common room in which students can eat lunch (however, this is a minor thing as there´s lots of great places to eat nearby).

    Learning Spanish in SWI
    The most poignant learning experience I had in Bogota was the culture; people and languange. SWI helped me assimilate with the country with learning the language quickly and, somewhat, effortlessly. The marriage of both the classroom setting and excursions activities richly enhanced my language learning experience. The teachers are very caring and have bounds of experience to impart knowledge in the best way to optimize learning. The only disadvantage I experienced was the unfortunate loss of a few such educators from the school due to, what I can only surmise as, administrative problems in the school. This being the only factor preventing me giving the highest rating for my experience. On the whole, I definitely recommend SWI to all. Cheers...

    I needed to put some finishing touches on an already pretty advanced level of Spanish. The personalized instruction I received through taking private lessons at the Institute helped enormously to fix the fine points of my grammar and pronunciation, and I am a much better speaker and communicator because of it.

    School is very well organized with excellent teachers, who are as well very helpful. Management is also very helpful and takes good care of students. They took me around and shew me some interesting neighbourhoods of Bogota which I really liked. The only thing is that I was not very happy with the accomodation that i was assigned. There was a last minute change and the house i ended up going to was too crowded, was noise and I had to share bathroom with too many people. It was not particularly clean either. I ended up going to a friend of a friend place where i ended up paying less for a much better room. However, the host family in both cases was very nice. It may just be that people with less money who are willing to rent live in less comfortable houses. In any case I suggest to watch out. Otherwise everthing was great.

    I studied at the school for a month this summer and found that the price was much more affordable than other programs in the area. My experience was that the school had a strong focus on grammer, and I learned all the grammar rules I needed in order to start reading academic journals and books in Spanish without any help from anyone else. I very much enjoyed the program and would recommend it.

    Die Schule hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Lehrer sind freundlich und koennen wirklich sehr gut erklaeren. Auf Anfrage kann man sehr schnell viele Themen behandeln, was dazu fuehrt, dass man sehr beantsprucht wird. Die Lehrer sind alle als professionell ausgebildet und sind immer offen fuer Fragen und Anregungen. Mir hat eine Woche schon unglaublich viel gebracht und ich kann die Schule wirklich nur weiterempfehlen.

    Ich hatte eine gute Zeit in der Sprachschule. In den 2 Wochen habe ich mein Spanisch deutlich verbessert. Die Lehrer sind alle super freundlich und sehr zuvorkommend. Ausserdem herrscht eine familienaehnliche Atmosphere und zweimal in der Woche kann man an Exkursionen, Abendessen teilnehmen. Das Institut wird streng gefuehrt, es darf kein Englisch gesprochen werden und die Chefin sorgt fuer straffe aber freundliche Strukturen.

    I spent a week at SWI taking private lessons and my only regret is that I had not done it sooner, and that I only spent one week in classes. My teacher, Roberto, was kind, patient and intelligent, while the rest of the staff was courteous and helpful. I suspect it helps to have a specific idea about what you want to learn (for instance, I knew I needed work with direct and indirect objects among other things). Overall, a great week.

    Me sinto privilegiado por ter estudado 3 meses em SWI. O método de ensino é ótimo, os professores muito atenciosos e se preocupam com os alunos. As turmas nao possuem mais de quatro alunos, facilitando assim o aprendizado e nos fazendo sentir como VIP's e, toda semana há uma atividade cultural fora da escola para que aprendamos um pouco mais sobre a cultura e história Colombiana. Recomendo e seguirei recomendando sempre o SWI para todos que queiram visitar Bogotá! Meus mais sinceros agradecimentos à todos da escola! Obrigado!

They assess your ability when you first arrive before you start you course through an online test to ensure they are not wasting time going over old information and tailored you classes towards areas I was lacking.

    I spent 2 weeks (40) hours doing the semi-intensive course at SWI; when I arrived I had never spoken Spanish in my life, and within days I was able to follow conversations, understand jokes, and even say a few things on my own. I am almost finished the course and I feel very confident in the learning I´ve undertaken so far. Highly recommended, when I´m back in Bogota I will take more cvourses at SWI.

    The speed of my Spanish learning increased dramatically when I joined Spanish World Institute. The school is very well run but they are flexible and will do their best to attend to each student´s needs. Classes are small, which means a lot of personal attention and they will even offer private classes for the price of a group class, if there is no one else at your level. Jose Roberto, Helena and Nancy are wonderful teachers and great people. I highly recommend this school if you´re in Bogotá.

É uma escola pequena, com classes de no máximo 4 alunos, portanto, aprende muito mais, e envolvem todos os estudantes.

    I chose this school because the first day I walked through the doors to check it out I was very impressed with their hospitality and personal attention. They let me sit in on a few classes that were in session so I could test out the school. I attended classes for two weeks and believe that my Spanish has really benifited from SWI. If I had more time in Bogota I wouldn´t hesitate to sign up for more classes with them.

A escola sai do convencional de livros, repetiçoes e outras formulas, e suas aulas säo mais dinamicas, mais produtivas e muito mais assertivas. Gostei muito da forma como as aulas foram conduzidas, possibilitando aos estudantes maior oportunidade de manter uma conversacao. As turmas säo reduzidas o que contribui e muito para o melhor aproveitamento. Os professores sao amaveis e realmente se preocupam com seu aprendizado e com as pausas e demais atividades da escola, proporciona uma maior interaçäo com o idioma e com a cultura local. Recomendarei a escola para outros estudantes e espero poder retornar e melhor ainda mais meu espanhol. Acredito que a escola tem potencial para expandir e se tornar referencia no ensino da lingua na america latina. Sem mais, agradeço a todos.

    Ich habe hier im Spanish World Institute eine sehr gute Zeit verbracht. Die Lehrer sind sehr kompetent und sehr freundlich. Der Studierend wird sehr gut in den Studienbetrieb integriert und kann sehr schnell Freundschaften mit Leute aus aller Welt schliessen. Die Schule bietet auch Nachmittags oder Abend Exkursionen an, die von einem typischen Bogota Essen bis zu Kulturellen Reisen reichen. So wird man praktisch ins alltaegliche Leben von Kolumbien respektive Bogota integriet und lernt die Kultur umso mehr kennen. Die kombination von Grammatik und Diskussions Stunden helfen einem schnell die Sprache zu lernen und auch anzuwenden. Ich habe hier eine sehr gute Zeit verbracht und kann dieses Institut nur empfehlen! saludos desde Bogotá.

    I am Swiss German living in Florida, and prior to Spanish (5 semesters at Univ. Florida) learned French, English, and Italian. During my visit to Bogotá last August I took classes at the Nueva Lengua, the school that shows up most in web searches. This time I decided to take classes at the Spanish World Institute (SWI) reason being it's a smaller school. Trying to be objective, I’d rate the quality of instruction the same. However, the flexibility of instruction and addressing the individual needs was clearly better at the SWl thanks to fewer students enrolled and smaller class size. The website and online exam made for a good 1st impression. The exam also gave a good self-evaluation. A surprise was what I received on my last day: No fancy yet useless certificate but an objective evaluation of my Spanish competency void of any flattery. This report was very detailed, extensive, and an honest assessment. To me this showed that the teachers keep track of progress, performance, and have an interest that a student actually learns and improves. My strength and weaknesses were clearly stated, advice was given how to to improve, and any teacher reading it will quickly be able to tailor further Spanish instruction. Extremely valuable! What impressed me at the SWI was the personal attention received. The interaction between students and teachers and/or administration was outstanding. I valued the 30 minute social break taken together at a nearby coffee shop. It allowed building personal relation ships among the students as well as between students and teachers. The help and advise I received about cultural & tourist places and events was beyond what I expected. I highly recommend this school.

    When I arrived, I could not speak any spanish at all. After 2 months, I am finally able to speak spanish, thanks to the curriculum of the school! The teachers are fantastic and they are really helpful. The classes are small and allow for an intimate class environment. Moreover, I loved the cultural field trips, where we were able to learn about the historic parts of Bogota and, of course, practice our spanish. I highly recommend this program.

    Going to Colombia for a month, I had several options of places to take language lessons. I decided to go with SWI because of how professional the school seemed. I made the right decision. I don't think I could have learned Spanish faster than my time with SWI. I already spoke a bit of Spanish after years of classes in high-school and college. My classes at SWI have helped to solidify my Spanish where I can now comfortably say that I am intermediate level speaker and reader. Group Lessons: Although I paid for group-lessons, I was lucky enough to end up with private lessons because there were no other students at my level. Instructors: The instructors are world-class. Each one has a different personality that provides a perfect balance for learning. The instructors (Nancy, Jose Roberto and Helena) would accompany me to the book store to buy Spanish literature, to museums in Bogota to or take me out to lunch to help me practice and improve my Spanish. In other words, it was a completely immersive experience. Classes: The classes were filled with grammar in the morning (2 hours), culture (2 hours) in the afternoon with a possible field trip or more grammar or culture (2 hours). Weekend-trip: My favorite part of the two-weeks I spent with SWI was the school weekend trip we did to a colonial town called Villa de Levya. We went hiking, shopping, dancing and eating for three days. It was great. Meeting Colombians: Through the school, I made friends with Rolos (people from Bogota), something that is not easy to do as a traveler. This was the best way for me to practice my Spanish. Home-stay: Finally, the home-stay was a great decision, mostly because of the proximity to the school. I advise living in walking distance to the school. 6-Hours a day: Also, I took six hours of classes a day, which can be a bit too intense for some people and by the end of my two weeks proved to be quite intense for me too. In short, I cannot recommend SWI more strongly if you are interested in learning Spanish. Thank you Maria, Nancy, Jose Roberto and Helena.

    SWI was a quick responder to email inquiries prior to starting the course. This was great, especially since I reserved a spot at the last minute. I took a one week course for four hours of instruction per day. Overall, this was a great learning experience and quite intensive as well. The classes were small (1-2 people in each) and we got quite a bit of individual attention. There were fieldtrips to museums, parks, and neighborhoods. SWI courses are tailored to each individual level so instruction was appropriate and enjoyable for me.

    Before I had come to Spanish World Institute, my Spanish was okay - but I still had trouble speaking and understanding. 3 weeks later, I had learned a lot of grammar, words, and was talking and understanding almost everything! The teachers here are wonderful, and my homestay accomodation as well (a 2 minute walk! and because the Colombian family was hosting 3 other students, I got to know them all well and through the students, a multitude of other students and people here in Bogota). I looked at other schools - this one was simply the most professional and in the best location. The food here in Colombia is delicious, the nightlife unbeatable, and the people very friendly and happy! If you are considering studying Spanish in South America, I definitely recommend it. Gracias a SWI and Colombia y bienvenida si escoges venir acà!

    My experiance with SWI has been completely positive. The group courses have a solid pace and the instructors are patient. Even if we need to move forward with a concept before I understood the concept, so not to hold back the whole class, the insturctors followed up with me later to make sure I understood the concept. I also did some private instruction and I think the the combination of private and group calsses is the way to go. Especially given the affordable price. Jose, Luz, and Nancy were excellent instructors. And Maria, La Directora, is organized, attentive to students needs, and made sure my experiance was safe, enjoyable and with a lot of great learning. I highly recommend SWI.

The teachers are all friendly, warm, and very good at pinpointing your strengths and weaknesses and adjusting the class to be most beneficial for you. I am at a pretty high level of the language, and despite that, they were still able to challenge me and keep me interested. I highly recommend SWI, and in particular the business spanish classes if you are a professional looking to brush up on your language skills. It will be a wonderful expereience!

    I have decided to study Spanish in a native country because I needed to rapidly improve my portunhol...usually Brazilians think that we have only to add IENDO at the end of every word, and there it is you´re speaking Spanish. Before choosing the country, I have talked to some friends that have been to Colombia before, and all of them told me that I would be surprised with the people and the place. And I must say...I am surprised! Bogota is a nice city, with a horrible traffic, but people are always willing to help, just like all latins. Choosing the school was not easy because the only tool I had was Google, but fortunally it was really helpfull. After finding SWI, I immediatly sent an email to Maria requesting for more information, and again, I was surprised on how quicky she responded. As I never took a course abroad, I can not say much about prices, but I believe that the price I paid was worth, each dollar. Teachers are simply fantastic, I had classes with Jose Roberto, Nancy and Luz... 3 different people, 3 different methodologies, 3 different background to make each class more interesting. Thank you all for helping me to improve my spanish skills, and for being around for all that was necessary. Special thanks to Maria who was so kind and helpfull all the time.

    I have taken spanish language classes in the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador and now I'm in Bogotá. (I'm a very slow learner!) I'm very picky about what kind of teacher I have and how the classes are set up. I always take one-on-one classes. Spanish World Institute is an excellent school. From my initial inquiries, Maria, the director, has been extremely responsive. We finally agreed on a schedule and I was surprised that the instructor they chose for me, Luz Helena, was pretty much exactly as I requested. It was a great fit. They actually listened to me! My class was a mixture of lessons, computer use and practice—my profe was very accommodating. All the staff and other instructors were friendly and accessible. The whole school was completely professional—rare in latin america. If there was one downside it would have to be the cost. In Bogotá, I think they offer the best prices, however all the schools in Bogotá are fairly expensive. That's the only reason I wouldn't give them 4 stars.
