About the school

IH Bogotá was founded in 2007. Member of International House world organization and the Viva group. Safety: Colombia still suffers from an image of lawlessness caused by the activities of guerrilla groups and drug cartels. Thankfully, violent crime has tumbled dramatically over recent years. So much so that Lonely Planet, a travel publisher, chose Colombia as one of its top ten travel hotspots for 2006, in large part because of improvements in safety. Of course travellers to Bogotá still need to take care, as indeed they have to in any large city, but the vast majority of visitors will experience nothing but warmth, hospitality, honesty and politeness.

I have been on the school for two months, I had an amazing stay here. The tearchers are really talented and you will benefit from the lessons no matter what your academic level is and improve your skills everyday.If you have problems with anything special the teachers offer extra lessons. The techers are very welcoming and smiling from day one, and they will help you with anything. So just ask if you need anything :) The only negative thing is that the classrooms are cold and their tabels are not that good by my opinion. But besides from that its an amazing school that I will recommend :)

Social activities

IH Bogotá organises a varied programme of social activities for the Spanish students. These include guided visits and excursions to places of interest in and around Bogotá, films in Spanish, concerts by local musicians, and exchange evenings at which students can meet and talk with some of our other students. The school also takes students out in the evening to experience some of Bogotá's unforgettable nightlife. They also organise full-day excursions to towns and places of interest outside Bogotá. These excursions are organised at least once a month. Please note that for these full day excursions outside Bogotá the school charges a supplement to help pay for the cost of the coach and guide.
