Our Medellin flagship school is the largest independent Spanish School in Colombia with a total of 14 classrooms, most with air-conditioning and video projectors. We have a team of almost 20 experienced teachers, the majority of whom have been teaching with Toucan Spanish for more than 2 years.

Intensive GROUP Classes

If you’re planning to learn Spanish in Medellin then Toucan Spanish Immersion classes are the logical choice. We understand that most people need Spanish for travel and don’t have 6 months to become super fluent. As such our classes are designed to give you the practical skills and confidence to speak from day one.

At Toucan Spanish School you’ll learn Spanish fast, in a fun & casual setting and with like-minded international travelers of all ages.

In classes you will learn not just grammar and vocabulary but also develop essential speaking, writing and listening skills. Outside of class you have the opportunity to join daily activities so that you get to see more of Medellin and have the chance to practice what you learn in class.

We have small group class sizes with no more than 7 students per class, typically it’s less. Classes start every Monday and you can book as many weeks as you like. As the largest Spanish school in Medellin we’re the only school that can guarantee classes at all levels.

Students who book Group Classes also receive:
  • Free Welcome Lunch
  • Free Salsa Class
  • Free Activities
  • Free Tropical Fruit Tastings
  • Free Language Exchanges

We understand that not everyone who comes to learn Spanish in Colombia wants to study in a group class environment. If you prefer more individual attention then private lessons at Toucan Spanish School is also great option. Private classes can be taken for all levels of Spanish from beginner to advanced.

Private 1-2-1 Classes are the perfect option if you prefer to learn Spanish at your own pace (whether it’s faster than the group class or perhaps slower) and you prefer a higher level of individual attention from the teacher. In addition the course content can be customized more to your learning requirements and learning style. Private classes may be taken at the school or with prior arrangement, at an external location such as a cafe or office.

Private “Closed Group” Class is a great option where you and a partner or friend want to have classes together but not in the general Intensive Group Course. In this situation Toucan can create a private “closed group” class specifically for you and your friend/s.

Skype Lessons are becoming a popular option for both those who prefer to have a basic grasp of Spanish before arriving in Colombia and those who wish to continue their lessons after arriving home from their travels throughout South America.
