Language exchange: language companions in Bogota

Actividades sociales y culturales

Social and cultural activities

Benefits included in this service are free of any fee for our students of Spanish in Bogota. This program gets together one student of Spanish and a Colombian student who is interested in the mother tongue of the foreign student. Students are transformed into tutors of their own languages. The language companion program has become a very popular way for students to learn Spanish in Bogota by exercising their conversation skills with Colombian native speakers of Spanish.

The search for a language companion may take up to two weeks. Nevertheless, this may take a bit longer, depending on the foreign student’s mother tongue.

How does the language companion program work?

We recommend this program to students with an intermediate level in the language they want to practice. Students can schedule their meetings, get to make new friends and at the same time benefit from the knowledge each one can bring to every session.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Improve their conversation skills in another language.
  • Learn everyday words and phrases in another language.
  • Share their culture with others as well as to improve their understanding of other cultures.
  • Build social relationships through friendly interactions.
