Pichilemu Language School

The language school Pichilemu Language School was founded in Pichilemu, Chile in 2005. Pichilemu is a coastal town in the West coast of Chile, 3 and a half hours by public transport from the country’s capital. This town is known for its beaches and excellent surf opportunities, with 9 metre waves, attracting many international surfers to the yearly competitions. One of the main locations for this is Punta de Lobos, just 15 minutes by car from Pichilemu, or for those wanting to stroll along the coast you can reach the beach by foot in an hour and a half. There is a wide range of street art and colourful neighbourhoods throughout the town including the Valparaiso stairs, Cerro Bellavista de Valparaíso, Plaza El Descanso and the murals of Valparaíso, all of which display Pichilemus talent. Pichilemu Language School is located on one of the main roads of Pichilemu, 13 minutes from the primary beach. Around the area there are plenty of supermarkets for you to buy your essentials, cafes, restaurants and a theatre showing local culture and folklore.



Learning a language can be a daunting experience, as it takes you away from your comfort zone and forces you to start again with communication. Pichilemu empathises with this and has a real dedication to teaching its students how to be confident with the principles of learning another language, which can be transmitted to a variety of languages. This is made possible by the small community of teachers who love the theory of language and with this passion, exert their knowledge into each lesson which soon vibrates to their students. Although the school is situated in a Spanish speaking country and is strong in its teaching of the local dialect, it also offers its students the chance to learn English in this international surfing town. Pichilemu has a number of amenities to help facilitate the perfect learning environment including a lounge, a balcony, a garden and a bilingual library. As Pichilemu has a very active presence, the school mirrors this multicultural theme and organised tours in hiking, yoga, boxing, biking, fitness classes and, of course, surfing.


The school address is: Anibal Pinto 21, third floor, office 3-R, 3220000 - Pichilemu, Chile (see on map)

Comments about courses:Whilst all levels are offered at Pichilemu Language School, the higher the level the less likely it is to create a group. If no group is available, students will receive private lessons. Due to the intensity of learning one-to-one, the number of lessons per will be reduced for the same price as the group classes. Surf Extra: USD 180 (per week).
It is possible to book a Surf option with any language course.
This is 5 group lessons Monday to Friday.

Accommodation

We work with a family that has been offering homestay stay for over a decade. Their house is also a hostel during the high season, therefore any student staying with them should expect a busier house and common spaces. It is space for someone looking to be social and meet different people as the head of the family is very friendly and well connected in our community. There are outdoor cats and an indoor dog at times. The family accommodates vegetarian diets and dietary restrictions or food allergies. They live close to everything in Pichilemu. A 10 minute walk from our school, the beach, surf school and 2 minutes from public transit. Everything in Pichilemu is walking distance.
