You Can With Toucan

Toucan Spanish School

Welcome to Toucan Spanish, Colombia’s leading Spanish school.

Our headquarters are based in Medellin where we boast the largest Spanish School in Colombia with a total of 14 classrooms and a team of almost 20 experienced teachers available to teach both group and private lessons. As a large school we’re able to run classes at all levels from beginners to advanced.

We’re very excited to launch our brand new school in Cartagena. Located inside the historic walled city of Cartagena the school is conveniently located to everything.

Meanwhile in Bogota we have Toucan experienced teachers ready to help you learn Spanish whilst in the capital.

The advantage of classes in 3 locations throughout Colombia is that you can continue studying at any of the three cities following the same Toucan curriculum & methodology. And you only need to take the placement test once. Classes start every Monday.

The Original & Most Professional

Toucan Spanish School was the original Spanish language school in Medellin with over 7 years of history. We don’t teach from outdated books, we have our own in house curriculum with a large emphasis on practicing in real-life situations. Most of our classrooms feature air-conditioning and video projectors. Toucan’s philosophy is not just about teaching Spanish, it’s about create memorable experiences. That’s why our experienced teachers and staff go out of their way to ensure you get the most out of your time in Colombia.

Small Friendly Classes

Group classes are small & intimate (the maximum is 7 students, but mor often it’s less) giving you personal attention, the opportunity to practice & enough time to have all your questions answered. Our experienced teachers are all young & friendly and keen to help. Your fellow classmates will typically be like-minded travelers of all ages.

Spanish Immersion

We offer a complete Colombia immersion experience. As well as learning about the local Colombian culture in classes we also give you the opportunity to stay with a local Homestay family. To reinforce your Spanish classes we take you into real life environments to practice what you learn in school. Classes are intensive and designed to get you speaking from day one.

Cultural Activities

We offer a variety of cultural activities, free, including a traditional welcome lunch, salsa lessons, language exchanges, football games and volunteering opportunities. You’ll also get to experience the famous Colombian coffee and some delicious tropical fruits along the way.

Convenient Locations

Our schools are conveniently located close to the main tourism areas of Medellin, Cartagena and Bogota with a variety of hostels & hotels nearby. Our Medellin school is located two blocks from Parque Lleras and 5 blocks from trendy barrio Provenza. In Cartagena we’re located inside the historic walled city and in Bogota we’re in cosmopolitan Chapinero.

Toucan Cafe & Tours

Alongside Toucan Headquarters in Medellin you’ll find the Toucan Café where you have the opportunity to hang out with other students & locals alike. The Toucan Cafe not only serves the best coffee in town, we also have Medellin’s only profesional tour desk where you can book the best tours in Medellin.
