Interacting 😀

In Laureles you’ll find many modern bars and restaurants and with that, temptations to live a foreign lifestyle. We challenge you to set yourself cultural and language immersion goals to not lose sight of why you’re in Colombia.

Below we’ll give you some ideas of how you can stay focused on your Spanish learning while enjoying modern Medellin.

Go to Plaza La America to have your daily breakfast or lunch before or after class and practice your Spanish with the other people that are eating there.

Colombians are fanatic “fútbol” fans and in Laureles you’ll encounter the biggest stadium of Medellin. It’s a unique experience to find yourself in an atmosphere of a stadium full of Colombians fanatically screaming, shouting and dancing on every goal.

In and around Laureles there are many places where you can take yoga, salsa or zumba classes. Of course we challenge you to take the classes in Spanish and not the English one, that are also frequently offered.

Instead of going to one of the many modern restaurants in Laureles go to Parque La Floresta every now and then to enjoy some authentic Medellin and find people who will only wait in Spanish.

Getting to Laureles

Medellín is home to one of the most innovative transportation systems of South America. Its metro lines cross the city all the way from the north to the south and the east to the west. On top of that it has many bus lines that will take you anywhere you need.

Use the Metro

Take the metro to the “La Floresta” station. From there, walk south on “La Ochenta”, or “Carrera 80” until you reach “Chancho Brasas” restaurant with a yellow fence. Turn to the left, and once you see the tree-lined canal, you’ll notice a footbridge on your right. Cross, and make a right, walking about 100 meters before you see our Spanish school in Laureles on your lefthand side, right after a wall with graffiti on it.

Take a Taxi

Tell the driver: para “Laureles”, el barrio “Los Olivos” por favor. You can add: “una cuadra después de la Plaza Las Americas (a big indoor market). If you’re coming from Avenida San Juan, you’ll turn right *just before* “La Ochenta”. Our Spanish school in Laureles is across from the “canalización” which is a canal with lots of trees and a walking path. One block past Plaza Las Americas (normally you’ll see some busses lined up, parked out front), you’ll see the school

We also have a location in Envigado
