Toucan Survival Spanish

2 Week “Survival Spanish” Course

At Toucan Spanish we understand that you’d prefer to spend more time travelling and less time in the classroom learning the language of the countries you’re visiting. With this in mind we’ve created the Toucan Survival Spanish Course, an intensive travel-oriented Spanish course.

This is an exciting new course exclusive to Toucan Spanish School Medellin. We’ve stripped back our general curriculum to the bones, removing the unnecessary grammar & structure required by traditional formal learning. In it’s place we teach the essential skills necessary to survive on a daily basis as you travel throughout South America.

The Toucan Survival Spanish Course combines a mix of classroom based learning alongside practical activities in real-life travel-orientated situations:

  • At the airport
  • In the taxi
  • At the hotel lobby
  • At the restaurant
  • In the supermarket
  • In a bar making friends

At the end of the course you won’t be fluent, however you will have a very solid foundation to allow you to survive on a daily basis as you travel through Spanish speaking countries.

Learn as you Explore Medellin

The Toucan Survival Spanish Course is not just about learning it’s also about having fun along the way. In addition to classes you’ll get to go on tours, go for meals and we’ve even planned a night out to explore the best salsa music in town. On the weekend you’ll get to take a trip out of town and perhaps partake in some adventure sports.

Best of all you get to enjoy Medellin, a modern city full of surprises, where the weather is almost always perfect and the locals are renown for their friendliness. As we explore the city you’ll understand why Medellin is currently the fastest growing tourism destination in South America. There’s no better place to start to your travel adventures!
