10 activities to enjoy while studying Spanish in Cartagena

Studing in Cartagena is an awesome experience! You can enjoy a lot of fiestas, every night there is something to do, people love to chill outside their houses, and of course you can enjoy the Caraibean sun.

It might be difficult sometimes to focus on your spanish grammar and the afternoon siesta will tempt you to relax little bit too long every afternoon instead of spending time doing your homework!

But the good (very good!) side of studying spanish at Nueva Lengua is that you can enjoy a lot of activities while you will enjoy yourself, learn and experience the colombian culture and the local life, while you keep learning and practising your spanish language skills!
