An amazing place to study Spanish!

Nov 11, 2013 
My time at the Amazon Spanish College gave me countless memories for life and a chance to experience something entirely new. While at the college I both studied Spanish and did volunteer work. This provided me with great opportunities to interact with the locals and practice my Spanish. Through this interaction I was able to use Spanish in practice, which really helped in learning a new language. The volunteer work also took me closer to the beautiful rainforest around the city. While the trips outside the city were amazing, the experience of being close to nature persisted in the city as well and is part of what makes the city of Leticia so special. The staff at the hotel was wonderful and intent on helping me with any difficulty I experienced. This gave me a great sense of security despite being in such a foreign environment. Getting to experience both the rainforest, the river and a culture that is entirely different from what I am used to was a true privilege. I can’t wait to go back!

I had a great time at The Amazon Spanish College. The teachers are excellent and you always have something new to do and discover. The amazon river and the rainforest are amazing. If you like nature and want to learn spanish this is the place to be.

Amazonas - a magic world

If you want to visit one of the most beautiful places on earth while getting to know a completely new culture and learning spanish this is the place to go. My ten weeks in the city of Leticia can only be described as Amazing, as is appropriate considering its location in the centre of the Amazon rainforest.

The sheer beauty of the location – the views, the plants, the animals – is enough to satisfy the most demanding traveller. But more than the beauty, what was so incredible about the journey I made, is how I learnt about and became a part of what to me was a completely new and different culture.

Feeding monkeys, visiting a serpentarium and seeing a horned frog, spending a day in a colombian day-care-centre, going to a carnival across the border, in Brazil, dancing the traditional Latin-American dances, going out with local friends, going along the amazing Amazon river, eating the traditional breakfast for kings, going by "moto-taxi", crossing the borders and being in three countries in one day.

I can truly say that I feel lucky to have experienced everything I have seen and done on this journey.
And none of it would have been possible without The Amazon Spanish College. Living with a host family gives you a unique opportunity to become a part of the culture as well as helping you immensely in your studies of the spanish language.

More than simply taking care of your basic needs such as picking you up from the airport and making sure your accommodation is up to scratch the College is always prepared with something new to do, some new aspect of the culture to discover.

The niceness and helpfulness of the owners and staff of the College goes beyond simply giving you a place to sleep and spanish classes. They are constantly coming up with new activities and finding new ways of learning and becoming part of the culture, determined to make this the journey of your life.

As they say: "el riesgo es que te quieras quedar". The only risk is that you want to stay.


A wonderful experience in a cute djungle town

For you who are thinking about travelling to Colombia, consider visit Leticia and the Amazon region. Leticia is easy to get around and it is a very calm and safe city.

I studied Spanish at a Spanish Language School, The Amazon Spanish College, and had a great time in Leticia. Leticia is really a good place to study Spanish and I made many new friends both in other international students and locals.

The teachers were excellent and the social and cultural activities were much more than I expected. Here you really get to know people and their diverse cultures.

The unique setting of the city, right in the border between Colombia, Brazil and Peru on the amazon river makes Leticia a excellent point for adventures along the Amazon river and rainforest. The school is centrally located in town only a 5 minute walk to the river.

Year round, there's lots of wildlife to be seen in the Amazon region, including monkeys, ocelots and dolphins, and array of birdlife and there are also indigenous villages that can be visited. You might also go fishing or Caiman spotting. The staff of the Amazon Spanish College are extremly helpful in arranging day excursions and weekend excursions to natural reserves in the area.

Popular are jungle trips to the nearby Amazon jungle, the natural reserve Marasha in Peru, the national park Amacayacu, the Ticuna settlement Puerto Nariño, Isla de los Micos (Monkey Island) and the visit of communities of the Ticuna, Yagua, Huitoto and Bora tribes. It is also nice to hire a Bicycle or go on a night time safari.

I had a basic level of spanish when I arrived in Leticia, but after 6 weeks of intensive course I can now speak spanish and get around well. Try this adventure! You will never regret it.
