I'm so thankful for my 3+ months of study at Colombia Immersion! The people in the school are so kind and welcoming, and the quality of the instruction is just fantastic. I studied in the Laureles location, but also visited Envigado for the social events. Laureles is a beautiful, safe neighborhood and the staff are incredibly professional and devoted to student success and experience. I studied mostly with Juan, and he takes his job incredibly seriously - my Spanish proficiency grew in leaps and bounds. I recommend this school and location to anyone interested. I absolutely love Medellin and this school is an important part of that experience! Despues de estudiar por solo 3 meses, logré tener charlas muy fluidas con personas de Medellin, y me dió lo que necesitaba para seguir estudiando y mejorando con podcasts, libros, articulos y otros recursos. Ya tengo muchos amistades con vecinos en los eeuu que casi no hablan ingles, y todo eso es por la instrucción de Colombia Immersion!

I visited Medellin in July 2018, and my experience was AMAZING! Absolutely nothing to complain, classes were just perfect and the staff were very friendly and treat equally well all students from so many different countries in the World. I'm writing a new review because since the pandemic started and the school announced the online classes, I decided to retake my Spanish classes with Colombia Immersion twice a week. And I must say that the quality that I found in person is the same in my virtual classes. I highly recommend online classes with Colombia Immersion! And when everything comes back to normal, and if you want to have a real immersion not only in the language but also the rich Colombian culture, you should really consider to visit Medellin and become a student of Colombia Immersion Spanish Scholl, I bet this will be one of the best experiences of your life!

The school itself is so so, a lot of better schools in the area. The thing is that they have a lot of hidden costs which does not apply to everyone. So some students in the same class end up paying a lot more for the same experience. I know Asians are charged more, I am not so sure about other groups.

Dear Nicolette, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We wanted to learn more about what happened to understand your inconvenience, but neither our memories nor our student records show a student named Nicolette from Singapore back in January. Could it be that you studied with another school in Medellin or that you studied with us in another period? We can assure you that all our prices are completely transparent and exactly the same for everybody, regardless of where they come from. We often don’t even know where someone comes from. You can find our prices on our website. We do give discounts to people that study long term with us. If you believe that a mistake was made in your invoice, please send us an email on info@colombiaimmersion.com with your full name and the period that you studied with us. We’ll be happy to explain the invoice or notice if a mistake was made and pay you back the difference. We always carefully check our invoices, but a human mistake is of course always possible. We hope to hear from you and in the meantime: stay safe!

I cannot recommend this programme enough! It was truly an awesome experience. The staff was especially helpful and professional but without the feeling of being unapproachable. I can only compare it to being part of a big family with super amazing brothers/sisters. If you are thinking of doing an immersion programme, this is the ONE!! My experience here can't be put into words that would do it justice, but looking back at the pictures on the website and being able to relate to them and that feeling of nostalgia is priceless. Take the plunge and do it.... you won't regret it. I was at the school in Laureles just over 4 weeks out of 7, attending classes until COVID boo! I plan on returning if circumstances permit.... Iv'e actually met a couple of people there who had returned for the second time, so that in itself speaks volumes. I'd choose Laureles again in a heartbeat! If you're wondering which to choose I would go for Laureles again and again and again because it is truly a special neighbourhood with its parks and green areas, the stadium, the metro, restaurants and bars. The night life outside Laureles is easily accessible without being in the thick of all the backpackers. I seemed to encounter a mixed crowd of travellers at the school that were full of good energy and were great fun.

Two years ago I went to the school in Envigado for a month, it was brilliant. The way the classes are taught ensure that you do not move onto another topic without fully knowing the previous one. The teachers are fun, caring, passionate and know how to engage the students with Spanish. The reason I am writing a review now is because I have just completed two weeks of online lessons. During this uncertain period I have had more time so thought I should try and improve on what I had previously learnt. The online lessons have not disappointed, as expected they have been super engaging, fun and I have learnt a lot. I cannot recommend this school enough.
