What our students said about Medellin

I really liked Medellin. Above all, Poblado is a very nice neighbourhood for going out or simply meeting up with someone. If you take the metro into the centre, it's a different story, but still doable. And a trip to Guatape is of course also worthwhile. The weather is great, always spring-like warm, not too cold at night - and if it rains, then for a maximum of 1 hour. I would definitely like to go back to Medellin.

Tobias Germany

It's a rich choice for mature people who are disciplined and will keep secure. Careless ones can be robbed, most naive can end their life path here.


Rating: 2/5

Torvald Russia

Boring in the sense of good for living but uninteresting for travelling. There isn't anything interesting to do besides eating, drinking, clubbing.

Centro Catalina

The teachers are very patient and very friendly. This is actually a rare combination. The management (also teachers) make a lot of effort and also act very spontaneously if a teacher cancels spontaneously or something else comes up. In general, it seemed very organised. The lessons are very varied. Not just dry vocabulary learning, but also practical references. At the same time, you also learn a lot about Colombia itself. The ladies at reception were also very nice and really helpful. My course was very small, there were a maximum of 3 of us, although there were also larger courses. There was also a good mix of people (lots of Swiss, but also French, Americans...) And of course the location is also great. Right in the centre of Poblado, max. 10 minutes' walk to the bars and restaurants and the metro is also within easy reach. I stayed at the school, so breakfast was included. It was very good and there were also other activities on offer in the evenings or afternoons (salsa classes, for example)... Thanks again to Ymer! And also not to forget the great support from Cologne (Tanja), who was always available and was able to deal with problems and enquiries quickly and easily - ...and also asked questions from time to time.
Very nice school, well organised.

Centro Catalina

You will definitely have the best time here if consider this place a hostel with amusing activities and a tiny bit of helping with your Spanish.
They have accountability of a child 3 y.o. they will never accept their guilt, will never punish a teacher for wasting your money or not caring, they will rather give you the rest of your money back than adjust to your needs.
