Learn Spanish in Medellin

Our Medellin flagship school is the largest independent Spanish School in Colombia with 14+ classrooms, most with air-conditioning and video projectors. We're located in the main tourism area close to hostels, hotels, nightlife and the best restaurants in Medellin. 

We understand that most people need Spanish for travel and don't have 6 months to become super fluent. As such classes at Toucan Spanish are designed to give you the practical skills and confidence to speak from day one. Over the past 3 years we've created our own professional curriculum which we use in Medellin, Cartagena & Bogota. At Toucan Spanish School you'll learn Spanish fast, in a fun & casual setting and with like-minded international travelers & expats of all ages.

New classes start every week and you can book as little or 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 so that you never have to share classes with students of different levels.

Toucan Spanish Classes

Intensive Group Classes (20 Hours) - Classes are 4 hours Monday to Friday and you can start on any Monday.  On weeks when there is a public holiday, classes are extended to 5 hours over 4 days. We have small group class sizes with no more than 7 students per class, typically the average is 3-4 students. 

Standard Private Class - Many people who want to learn Spanish in Colombia choose to take private lessons at Toucan Spanish School. It's a great option because the course content can be customized more to your personal learning style and you can go at your own pace. Generally you'll cover the same content in 2 hours of private classes as you would in 4 hours of group classes. Private classes can be taken for all levels of Spanish from beginner to advanced.

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.
