Studying Spanish in Bogotá
With 330 Million native speakers and a total of 420 Million people speaking Spanish, Spanish is the 4th most spoken language in the world. But apart from the fact that Spanish is internationally a very important language, I think it is also one of the most beautiful languages in the world. Especially beautiful and particularily easy to understand is the Colombian Spanish.
Ok we leave the accent of the Costeños (the inhabitants of the coast) aside because when you find yourself on the Colombian coast in Chocó, La Guajira, Magdalena or the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta , the accent is very different from the one in Bogota or Medellin and it is not really easy for me to understand the people there.
So maybe instead of improving your Spanish at home you should consider going to Colombia in order to practice your language skills? Maybe you just want to learn some basics for your next backpacking trip in South America or you want to become more fluent, in any case you should consider improving your knowledge in Bogota the capital of Colombia. For some time already more and more tourists are coming to Colombia what also results in more Spanish classes being offered. In a lot of places like Medellin, Bogota and Cartagena a lot of professional courses are offered. I have also collected my first Spanish knowledge a while ago in Colombia and I was impressed by the professionalism.
Wenn Ihr euch bevor Ihr nach Kolumbien geht schon einmal ein bisschen auf die Eigenheiten des kolumbianischen Spanisch einstellen wollt, dann könnt Ihr dies hier bei meinem Beitrag „Sprechen wie die Kolumbianer“ tun.
