International House Bogota

The language school International House Bogota was founded in Bogota, Colombia in 2007. The school is located in the centre of La Candelaria, the city's historical district, less than 10 minutes walk from Plaza de Bolívar, which is the old city's main square. The school building which dates from the early 19th century is stunningly beautiful and has been lovingly preserved. It has many original features including beautiful tiled and wooden floors, ornately carved wooden ceilings, a wide, wooden staircase that sweeps up to the first floor, high ceilings and two spacious interior courtyards.

The school address is: Calle 10. N 4-09, 11001000 - Bogota (Colombia).

  • Homestay: A typical house will have a living room/dining room, a kitchen and bathroom and 3 or 4 bedrooms. There is often a yard outside which people use as an extension of the house. The families will often have children or grandparents living with them so there is normally plenty of opportunity for conversation practice. Students should be prepared for the fact that few families will speak another language.

Super central location of the school, and friendly reception - but ultimately the lessons with a really good teacher, who was able to adjust to the students even though they had very different levels.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I think that it's appropriate to use "usted" for a teacher with a sense of Japanese. However, the students from other countries used "tu". I think it was good to feel more closer toward the teachers.
I met many international students and made practice of my Spanish.
