Spanish Course in Pucón

The small town of Pucón is located about 800 kilometers (500 miles) south of Chile’s capital, Santiago de Chile. Pucón is known as the “The Gate to Patagonia”, and is one of the touristic hotspots of Chile. Situated by the lovely Lake Villarrica, Pucón is a very popular destination among both national and international travelers. During the summer season (November - April), it is an especially popular destination, and thousands of tourists flock to the Chilean lake district for vacation.

Pucón is the ideal place for those who love adventures as well as those who simply want to relax and enjoy nature. The small town offers countless hiking trails, national parks with breathtaking nature, deep forests, mountain rivers, outdoor-sports like horse-back riding, rafting, mountain biking, canopy tours, kayaking, volcanoes climbs, watersports on the lake, skiing in the winter, or simply the option to hang out on the amazing beaches of Lake Villarrica.

In addition to its wide range of activities during the day, Pucón’s nightlife is also quite noteworthy. Fancy bars and clubs, delicious restaurants, and a casino are the perfect places to finish off an exciting day in Pucón.

Our Spanish school in Pucón, the adventure and outdoor tourism capital in Chile, is located only two blocks away from the main street, Avenida O'Higgins. This small school was founded in 1999 by several Spanish language teachers. The founders of the school have developed excellent teaching methods in the many successful years of the school’s existence.

The school building is in the center of the city and the students can easily reach shops, bars, restaurants, tour operators, supermarket and of course the beach of the Lake Villarrica. The Spanish school is equipped with 6 classrooms, a cozy patio and a business center with Internet access.

The teachers are all native Spanish speakers and enjoy teaching their language to foreign students and introducing them to the Chilean culture. Before long students notice how easily they can form sentences and communicate efficiently in Spanish.

The staff of the Spanish school values the familiar and intimate atmosphere. They put much emphasis on offering lessons that are personalized and flexible. The school offers private lessons allowing the students sufficient time to study Spanish and explore the beautiful countryside of Pucón. With this arrangement, students adapt the classes to their schedule leaving plenty of time to participate in the unlimited outdoor activities.
