A NEW KIND OF SPANISH SCHOOL
PRACTICE WITH LOCALS
What Makes Us Special
CurriculumOur interactive curriculum is designed to help you understand and use grammar quickly so you can start speaking immediately. We believe learning is most effective when enjoyed, so we aim to keep class both fun and educational. All of our teachers are native Spanish speakers.
ImmersionPractice your Spanish outside of class daily with bilingual tours and volunteering opportunities, and by attending our popular language exchange every Friday. Immersion is a key part of learning, so we aim to make it easy to immerse yourself in Spanish and Columbian culture.
CommunityThe local community of students, friends, and neighbors is friendly and active! Colombia Immersion wants to improve the local community while offering opportunities for language practice. Join in on our many activities, make new friends, and practice your new language skills!
Meet the friendly Colombia Immersion team! We're constantly working to create the best learning environment at the best Spanish School in Medellin.
TeacherI like to organize field trips with my students, since students can practice the language with native speakers and have fun with the activities we prepare for them.
TeacherI love seeing my students' smiling faces when they feel that they've progressed.
TeacherEverybody here genuinely cares about the wellbeing of all people in the school. It's a place full of life that welcomes people to learn and to share.
TeacherWhile students learn Spanish, they also listen to stories and experiences from travelers around the world. Because of this, there are many spontaneous friendships across borders.
TeacherIn my classes I like sharing my cultural background and hearing my student's stories and perspectives on traveling, living abroad and getting to know new cultures.
Course DeveloperI enjoy creating new learning techniques and activities for the students and love hearing laughter from the classrooms. It shows that we are doing something right and learning can be fun.
School DirectorI love languages, new cultures, learning, and energetic people. I love being surrounded by people that have the same passions.
Tour GuideI show the students the real 'magic' of Medellín. I take them to places that they would never get the chance to experience if they were traveling by themselves.
General ManagerI love when a student talks about an experience, eyes lit up, saying “that was really cool”. You get to share these special moments that they’ll remember for a long time.
Student Experience CoordinatorWhat I love from being here is the interaction with students on a daily basis, I get to know every single one of them quite well during their learning process.
FinanceColombia Immersion is, for me, a new and revolutionary way of teaching Spanish where people from all over the world get together with a common goal.
House CleanerYou can call me 'Madre'. I make sure the house is a clean and healthy studying environment for all the students.

What People Are Saying About Us
A beautiful, enriching and energetic community to be a part of. Muchas gracias a todo for the amazing Spanish lessons - inside and outside of the classroom. Envigado and Colombia Immersion certainly has a special place in my heart! Much love!
The teachers at Colombia Immersion do a great job forcing you to speak in class, and I could not recommend it more! The classes are small and the school does a great job assuring that you are with others of a similar level. The school is very responsive to you and does a great job helping you become comfortable in Medellín. Simply through being at the school, I made several great friends from Medellín whom I will definitely see in the future. Muchísimas gracias para todo!
Great place to learn Spanish! The instructors are amazing and the sense of community at this school is great. I can't recommend it enough. I took 1 month of classes and developed much more confidence in my ability to speak and understand Spanish in a conversational context. The classes are focused on learning conversational Spanish which I found to be perfect because I needed Spanish for travel and to communicate along the way.
I’m reading, writing, listening, speaking and understanding more Spanish than ever before. Julio manages to get just the right balance of having an unwavering patience with our group, whilst also consistently pushing our comfort zones!
Living and studying at Colombia Immersion in Envigado for a week was a perfect complement to exploring and getting to know the real Medellin. I came to Colombia knowing basic conversational Spanish, having never had a formal class before... totally up-leveled my communication ability and made the time at CI totally worth it!
