After a bad experience with Spanish lessons in Cuba I wanted to give it another try in Colombia. I found the website of Neotropical and send them an email on the 1st of January. They replied really quickly even though it was the first day of the year. The first week I had 4×4 hour lessons with Aleja and I got so enthusiastic that we booked another week in Santa Marta to take more lessons. My boyfriend started the 2nd week as well. The 2nd week I had lessons with Elsa. Aleja and Elsa are both wonderful! Really patient and professional, they work with really nice handouts. A perfect mix between vocabulary and grammar. Always happy to welcome you with hot coffee, fresh fruits and fresh water. I learned so much in these two weeks! I’m more confident to speak Spanish now during my traveling through South America. I would highly recommend them!
