Intensive Spanish Classes

At Toucan Spanish we have new classes start every week, at all levels. Our Intensive Group Classes (20 hours/week) are small & intimate giving you personal attention, the opportunity to practice & enough time to have all your questions answered. Likewise we also provide Private Classes for those people who prefer lessons at their own pace. 

We don’t teach from outdated books, we use our own curriculum. Classes focus equally on grammer, listening, writing and speaking and with an emphasis on practical Spanish and Spanish for travel. Our experienced teachers are all young & friendly and encourage you to speak Spanish from day one.

Spanish Immersion & Cultural Activities

At Toucan Spanish we offer a complete Colombian Spanish immersion experience. Our philosophy is not just about teaching Spanish, it’s about giving you the tools to create memorable life experiences. In addition to classroom learning we often take you into real life environments to practice what you're learning.

If you're taking Group Classes we offer you free cultural activities daily including a traditional welcome lunch, salsa lessons, language exchanges, football games, cinema, cultural talks and volunteering opportunities. You’ll also get to experience the famous Colombian coffee and taste some delicious tropical fruits. At Toucan Spanish you'll learn about Colombian culture, make friends and have plenty of opportunity to practice Spanish along the way. 

Medellin, Cartagena & Bogota

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. As a large school we're able to offer classes at all levels from total beginners to advanced. Most of our classrooms feature air-conditioning and video projectors

Our second school is located inside the historic walled city of Cartagena, close to historic sights, hostels and of course the beach. In Bogota we don't have a school building as yet, however our team of experienced Toucan teachers are ready to provide private lessons for those who wish to learn Spanish in the capital city.

The advantage of classes in 3 locations throughout Colombia is that you can continue studying at any of the three cities utilizing the same Toucan curriculum & methodology.
