Market of words.

When we started this project we would thought about the upcoming challenges, but now we think about the people who have supported us, as well.

Today we want to recall Mr. Manuel, our first student. A wonderful man who took with him the pleasant experience of learning Spanish with a turn, an alternative way, where the popular culture of our city can be the best way to think and live our language. We walked around Bazurto’s market to realize that most of our faces are shared by the same warmth.

We are the people.

On Peter‘s month in Kalamarí Spanish we exchanged language, culture and tradition together. La vacilamos a lo cartagenero.

It was a month full of living experiences. Our student, in addition to improving his skills as an Spanish student, he got to know what it means to be a part of this city. In our school students face a methodology that encourages them to live Spanish through art and culture in real spaces. You can be one of us, learn Spanish with Kalamarí Spanish School and create your own experience. Just like him, we hope that you also live the best experience of Spanish, the Kalamarí experience.

Tasteful History.

Sydney visited The Modern Art Museum knowing just a little about this place. Her and her teacher were able to discover the beautiful, colorful and telling paintings of Cecilia Herrera, a well-known artist in the Caribbean

This gave them the opportunity to talk about nature, colors and mainly violence in Colombia. To complement this activity, the teacher decided to use the documentary El Testigo illustrate in a wider way the violence in our country, which left her very shocked but grateful to the school for allowing her -from the process of learning Spanish- to know more about this topic. With this we want to remind you that our commitment as a school and as Colombians is to educate, problematize and reflect on social criticism.

I have spent 10 weeks learning Spanish here and really recommend it. I spoke no Spanish at all, but was soon talking, understanding, reading and writing. I am looking forward to continuing my lessons via Skype now that I am back in Norway. A great experience, really helpful people, I learnt and laughed a lot too (I think this is important while learning a language!!)

I was learning Spanish in the streets of cartagena. One of my friends recommended this school, I took a tryout class and after that I took 2 weeks of classes with them! They teached me a lot, way faster then I could learn on the streets! I highly recommend them. The teachers are very motivated and use a nice way to teach you Spanish!
