Is our best ally seek excellence and grow through it with us.
My name is Adrien Bonville, I’m traveling in Colombia and I took courses with Raíces for a week. It was a very interesting experience and now I feel my Spanish level has improved. My teacher Esperanza was patient and taught me with very good pedagogy.
I took private lessons in Raíces for a month and I absolutely recommend this school. Everything was perfectly organized. For example, they have online materials on Drive (grammar books, materials, school work, and much more).
My teacher was super punctual and flexible in terms of place and schedule, also is a very good teacher because he always explains me with many examples and patience until I understand; and above all, you dont feel only like a student but as a friend because they go with you to the cultural events and festivals in Cartagena. After a month in the school, I not only feel an improvement of the language, but also a connection to the city.
I really liked the spanish courses I took for one week in Cartagena with Estefany. She was very flexible in regard of date and time as well as my needs (topics, vocab, gramar). I learned a lot in this week and Estefany was a patient and organized teacher. Also Jader really helped me out with the organization in advance.
Thank you for everything.
I had an amazing time learning with Estefany! It helped me during my time traveling alone in Colombia. She was able to quickly assess where my needs were, and focused on the areas I wanted to improve in the short time that we had together. I took a lot from the lessons, not just with textbook Spanish, but with cultural sayings and what I was hearing in my everyday experiences that I couldn’t figure out how to translate. Raices is great because the teachers are flexible to teach where you are comfortable to learn, and on your schedule. It is super individualized!
Classes are flexible, if you need to improve on one aspect, they first adapt the method according to your needs and use different tools to teach you. Living in Cartagena is an incredible experience and during the lessons the teachers approach topics that interest me about the city and colombia in general. We laughed a lot.
