There are several things that particularly impressed us about Nueva Lengua: the people, the underlying structure/philosophy of the school and the activities. Above all, it is the community of Nueva Lengua that made our experience so extraordinary. Our teachers were professional, interesting and encouraging. I am a language teacher also (French and English as a Second Language) and I learned much more than Spanish from our talented teachers!
Nueva Lengua est l’école idéale pour qui veut apprendre ou améliorer son espagnol tout en découvrant la culture du pays. Je me suis installé à Bogotá pour une durée d’un an et je ne parlais pas du tout espagnol avant d’arriver. Je suis resté trois mois à l’école durant lesquels j’ai acquis des bases solides, indispensables à la vie de tous les jours et à la poursuite d’une activité (travail, études, …)
It was a wonderful experience. I found the school responsive to my needs. I had studied Spanish in college for two years and once spent 6 weeks in Peru, but this was 40 years ago! Although I did well on the placement test, it was clear the intermediate class was too hard so the school arranged for me to have special lessons until other students arrived who were at my level.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nueva Lengua to anyone looking to learn Spanish and have a great time.
