The Spanish school in Pichilemu was founded in 2005 with the objective of building a quality language school outside the capital Santiago de Chile. With its wonderful location at the seaside Pichilemu is indeed a very attractive alternative to the capital for learning Spanish. With South America Inside you can even combine your Spanish study in Santiago and Pichilemu. If you want to stay in both locations we are happy to arrange that for you.
The majority of the Spanish students come from North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. You will see that studying together with other globetrotters is even more fun!
The school also works as an English language learning facility for Chileans. The mixture of foreign language students and locals studying at the same school is conducive to cross-cultural exchanges and furthers your interest in the language of "the other"..
All of our Spanish teachers hold a university degree and have a two year experience of teaching Spanish as a foreign language in average. Speaking, text writing and oral as well as textual understanding are taught using workbooks and through various exercise activities. The school combines different teaching methods and attaches a great importance on applying the acquired knowledge outside the classroom. While instructors know English they only speak Spanish during class. During coffee breaks, teachers encourage students to have conversations with their classmates in Spanish.
