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).

  • The majority of the host families live in relatively new, one or two-storey houses, although some live in apartments. 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.
  • Max. 1 student of each nationality possible? no
  • Single room: on request
  • Optional airport transfer

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.
