Learning Spanish in Bolivia

Bolivian Spanish is typically spoken much slower and much more clearly than in other Latin American countries, making Bolivia a great place for learning or fine tuning the language. The low cost of language study in Bolivia is also a major incentive, as rates are generally cheaper than in neighboring countries. And given the wide variety of language schools available, how you go about learning is really up to you. Whether you’d prefer to join a class or to take lessons with a private tutor, most major cities—notably Cochabamba, La Paz and Sucre—have a school that will cater to your needs.

Several schools furthermore supplement their classes with activities meant to immerse students into the Bolivian culture, allowing them to use their newly learned Spanish firsthand. Such activities include dance classes, cooking classes, volunteer work and parties. Getting in contact with a language school can also help to alleviate much of the stress than can come with planning a trip through a foreign country. Many schools offer packaged deals that provide airport transportation, daily excursions and accommodation.

At an additional charge most schools can set up homestays with local Bolivian families. If you are looking to perfect your Spanish, a homestay is highly recommended, as it forces you to forgo your native language and to speak exclusively in Spanish. The chance to live in a homestay is a unique opportunity that will present you with an inside look at the Bolivian culture that you just can’t get staying in a hotel.
