Spanish course in Montevideo

Uruguay’s exciting capital is a city of beautiful architecture, stunning beaches and a rich cultural heritage. You’ll always have something to do if you take a Spanish Course in Montevideo! Relax on the perfect sandy beaches, or enjoy any number of water sports, from sailing to kitesurfing. Enjoy a coffee whilst you watch resplendent white yachts slip in and out of the marina, before taking a stroll to discover the colonial riches of the old town. The Teatro Solis and the Casa Rivera, which offers a fascinating insight into Uruguay’s past, are particularly worthy of a visit!

Then, as dusk turns to night, explore the Bartolomé Mitre area and its wealth of bars, cafés and restaurants. Learn how to dance the Tango or try a local tipple, such as clericó (white wine sangria) or grappa con miel (grappa with honey)

Student reviews & feedback

The school in Montevideo was an amazing experience! I had three teachers and they were each extraordinary, kind, and compassionate! My classes were one on one and they were tailored to my needs as a high school Spanish teacher. I honestly wish I could have stayed longer just to have my teachers, the staff were also amazing and kind.

My accommodations were good. The host family was nice. The location was superb. I would recommend this family to anyone.

I would recommend the school to anybody wanting to learn a language!
