Amazing place where you will learn Spanish and have fun!
Sep 2019
Whee is an amazing place to learn Spanish in an innovative and fun way, while getting new friends! I absolutely loved it there and it was a great start to my 5 months stay in Bogota. They have so many social events, which are such a great way to meet new people and to also practice your Spanish with natives that you meet - if you dare ;)
I took classes for 4 weeks at Whee and would have loved to stay much longer!
All my love to Lisa, Andrea and all the other amazing people at Whee :)

online learning during covid
Jun 2020
I took 7 weeks of online classes at Whee. We sometimes started with a new group or teacher at the start of a new week I had 4 different teachers all with their own teaching styles. All of them were patient, knowledgeable and put a lot of thought into their lesson plans. Each 2-hour lesson went by very quickly and I learned a lot without realising.

The organization of the school itself (e.g. placement, communication) was also excellent. I am looking forward to going to classes there again in the near future - hopefuly in Bogotá!

A spanish school with originality and passion
Dec 2019
Whee Institute is a great place to study spanish, the classes are small, personal and engaging; whilst the teachers quickly identify strengths and weaknesses and adapt the class accordingly. The emphasis on participation and using various cultural references really enhanced my spanish. Three hours of spanish flew by helped along by mid-morning activities and a coffee break. The staff were such fun and were quick to help with any queries about the city or classes. En pocos palabras, an upbeat, friendly atmosphere offering challenging aand fun classes.

Learn Spanish FAST!
Jan 2020 • Friends
When you sign up at Whee, you aren't just starting to "go to school for Spanish", you are joining a group of people that think in a creative way. The experience that I had at Whee showed me that the way that I like to learn is very common. No text books and interactive learning made every day fun to look forward to. The examples that all of the teachers used of things that relate to your every day life in Colombia helped in everything I did and everywhere I went. Being that everyone in the school had like minds, the friendship bonds I established made my experience in Colombia more than I expected. Thanks so much to Whee for giving me the foundation I need to enjoy a conversation with the beautiful people of Colombia and for the friendships I will have for life.

Lovely, independent Spanish School in Bogotá
Feb 2020 • Solo
I spent two weeks at Whee learning Spanish. As a complete beginner I ended up in a class on my own, which wasn’t ideal, but my teacher Marcela went above and beyond to make the classes as interactive as possible. Everyone at Whee is very friendly and welcoming, I enjoyed meeting other students at break times and attending some of the organised social activities. If you’re looking for Spanish classes in Bogotá with a relaxed vibe, I’d definitely recommend Whee.

El lugar para mejorar tu español.

I had a great time at Whee Institute and was overall really happy with my experience. First of all, the team is flexible and you can put your schedule together as you wish. I enjoyed the classes in the morning as well as in the afternoon. The teachers were always well prepared and did their job with a lot of joy. The atmosphere in the school during class time and during the breaks is always really pleasant. The activities organized by the school help you connect to students of other classes. I met some great people along the way and will happily remember my time at Whee Institute as a major contribution to my time in Bogotá.
La pasé muy bien, gracias por todo.

Spanish classes
Dec 2019 • Couples
I spent more than 10 weeks at the Whee Institute in 2019. I have to admit that it was the best time I used to study Spanish. Teachers were really great, with passion and charisma. I did great progress during mine time in college.
At Whee Institute staff was super friendly and very helpful. Thank you all for amazing time.
Various games and other activities were organized during breaks and outside of lessons. It was a perfect opportunity to meet other people and make friends with students from all over the world.
If you think about study Spanish in Bogota, Whee Institute is the right place for you.

Energy and inventivity in language teaching
Dec 2019
Energy, colour, inventivity, and very small class sizes. What more could you ask for in a language school ? Whee has it all. Learning Spanish with Whee (in my case as almost a complete starter) really is like playing a game.
Whee is very good value for money, and Bogota, like any city has its own particular drawbacks, but alos its own particular strengths, and for me is agreat place to learn Spanish.

Thank you for a brilliant week. The classes with Andrea were great, tailored to the small group (three of us) and our shared interests. Also lots of learning by doing - we took real Colombian pesos out to learn about numbers, and going to the bakery etc. This is the best way to learn! I loved the school activities too - lots of good fun people in one place. Loved it. Still in touch with many of the classmates as we travel colombia. Highly recommend and thank you.

Super impressive Spanish school
Nov 2019 • Solo
I spent a week here in a group class at B1 level. I thought the school was excellent - from the initial short assessment to place me in the right class through to the super friendly and helpful reception and other colleagues. And most importantly, the teaching was great. I was in a small class of 4 people. I thought the range of interactive approaches / methods kept the classes interesting and useful. Andrea, my teacher, was by far the best of the four teachers I've had throughout Colombia - patient, the right balance of focused and fun, spoke Spanish almost all the time but could draw on her English to explain where necessary. A friend had private lessons with her and said those were excellent as well. I didn't use other teachers but all the reviews from other students at the school were very positive. If I return to Bogota to study Spanish I'll definitely go back to Whee.
