We are a Colombia-based Spanish school that prides itself on dynamic interactive lessons – to help you get the most out of your learning experience. Our Spanish School is in Poblado, Medellin and offers students a great language learning experience by combining Spanish courses and authentic cultural experiences. We enable students to fully immerse themselves in the culture of Colombia for maximum enjoyment and learning benefit.
We know that, when it comes to language, studying and learning are not the same thing. That is why we combine proven classroom techniques with modern technology to provide first-class Spanish lessons here in Medellín, Colombia.
We offer a small teacher-to-student ratio in the classroom and our teachers provide individual care and focus on each student’s progress, giving feedback as you practice. We aim to make our classes interactive and relevant so students advance as quickly as possible.
We are passionate about languages and Total Spanish was created as a Spanish school focused on teaching relevant quality Spanish to help you get maximum benefit from your time. Our desire is to help students learn not just grammar but all the core aspects of the Spanish language in a fun interactive way. We have helped so many people who arrived knowing how to ask questions only to be lost once the person responded.
All of our teachers are trained language graduates from Colombia so you can be sure that you are getting quality Spanish lessons at excellent prices.
We are also perfectly sized, large enough to be able to offer classes at all levels every week but small enough that we get to know all of our students.
We teach according to well-designed industry standard guidelines so that students are not rushed through topics without learning. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly so you can feel comfortable speaking in Spanish. Assigning native speaking teachers in small groups allows students to maximise their time so that they can make learn as much as possible when with us.
I started with no knowledge of the language whatsoever. The teachers are super friendly and they definitely know how to teach. Within the 2 weeks I learned so much, not just about the language but also about the country and I am super grateful! Also they are flexible when it comes to the schedule. I wanted to change a few dates, because I was doing touristy stuff and it was never a problem.
I would definitely recommend this school for everyone who wants to learn the language of the country they are in!
I originally booked 4 weeks of classes and ended up staying 7 because I didn't want to leave!! The teachers are not just Spanish speakers, they all studied it at university and can therefore answer all of your questions. They're also super nice. What I liked most was the fact that the classes were very small and that they organized activities almost every day: dinners with the other students, visit of some places of the cities (escaleras, centro, etc), day-trip (Guatape) and they even had tastings of local food or fruits during the break some days!! Also, for those afraid of safety, the school is located in the heart of the safe area of Medellin, where there are no problem whatsoever.
I was welcomed with warm smiles as i first walked through the front door. They do a quick test to check what level you are and quickly assign you to a class. After 3 weeks from knowing no Spanish what so ever, i am now able to have small conversations and navigate around.
Highly recommend if you are spending a decent amount in South America
I have taken Spanish classes in Costa Rica, Panama, Cartagena and the U.S. Total Spanish in Medellin was by far the best. The teachers are fabulous and they make school feel like family. And Medellin can't be beat as a place to study. I now live on Medellin and still study at Total Spanish. Can't recommend it highly enough.
I spent 2 months in Total Spanish and it was one of the best decisions I made during my time in Colombia. Initially, I knew little to no Spanish and when I left here I was conversational and able to travel through Colombia comfortably with what I learned. The instructors are helpful, enthusiastic and patient! I gained so much knowledge from Oscar and Diana. Also, Cindy and Sara are more than accommodating and work hard to ensure a well-rounded experience!
I did quite a thorough research before registering a 3-week class in Total Spanish. And I'm glad that I chose this school. Everyone is super friendly and happy. The teachers are very good at structuring the lessons. I've been travelling in South America for a year and although I picked up some words along the way, I couldn't say a proper full sentence in Spanish. After 3 weeks, I'm confident to initiate short conversations with the locals and basically understood what they said. Throughout the week, there was always at least one day the school offer free fruit or food tasting. I definitely would go back to this school.
A quick summary of just some of the things our students will enjoy whilst at the school
