"Only for beginners"

Deborah Linn, opiskelija _ maasta USA

Do not attend this school if you already know some Spanish and are looking to learn more. Let's start with the fact that there are no books so you don't know what you are studying, where you are going, or where you have been. Classes are basically conversation. I found that beginners with no Spanish progressed rapidly for about two weeks. Those of us with more experience, to a person, felt that we learned little and were frustrated. I started in class with two young men who had been studying intensively at the school ( morning and afternoon) for 6 weeks. They were just starting to conjugate irregular verbs in the preterite (simple past), In 4 weeks at other schools I had already done the present, preterite, imperfect, conditional and future tenses. I went to more classes to learn more about the imperfect and conditional, and made that clear to the teachers. That did not happen and in fact I think I speak less now than before I went to Centro Catalina. This is not the fault of my teacher who was great. It is the system.

With respect to accommodations, as it turned out, my roommate and I were the only students with air conditioning (other than a few who did home stays and paid extra for it). I don't think I would have survived without it. Our apartment was lovely, with an ocean view and a pool. But the location wasn't great. It was not near any other students and we were the only students in the building. Also, the internet did not work for most of the time we were there and we had to complain every day before it was fixed. Further, the apartment was poorly maintained. All it would have taken was a screwdriver and some WD40 to fix most of it, but in the time I was there the lock to my roommate's bedroom broke and she was locked out, the handle in the shower broke, most of the cabinets needed tightening, the lock to the front door stuck several times, the tv never worked and one plug stopped working.

What the school excelled at was activities. Due mostly to their social director the school was fun. There were tours, tastings and David had weekly BBQs at the School-owned house. David went out with the students most nights dancing, drinking, seeing the sites and truly made the school seem like a family. Further, it was a great group of students from around the world.

"Fantastic school in heaven"

Aude, opiskelija _ maasta Ranska

I'm really happy with my experience at Centro Catalina. The school is very well organised, has plenty of students (in March, we were between 25 and 40 students) to split into small group with homogeneous levels. Teachers were really good, structured and organised. The team is lovely. The school is well located in the touristic centre of Cartagena (perfect spot for an extended stay, with beautiful historic city, fab weather, lovely fruits). I studied there for 2 weeks but could easily have done 3 or 4 if I had time. Some social activities are offered for the afternoons.

"The staff made you feel like family, while remaining very professional. A great environment to learn in."

Jean-Robert Ouellet, opiskelija _ maasta Australia

The instructors were very knowledgeable, professional, and really made you feel welcome. The planning of the lessons was very logical and was a good mix of new material and repetition/games to help cement in the material previously learned.

"Better school than in Bogotá, nicer atmosphere, nice teachers, cozy, cozy, nice school cat, and happy people"

Martine Guadalupe Graven

Everything was perfectly arranged. It was in a good location, very central. They had a nice patio where a hammock was present, and there was a canteen where you could get fresh orange juice every day. The staff was very cheerful, very kind. They had a house cat which created a warm feeling. The classrooms were fine. The teachers were good. They wanted to help with everything. What I did find annoying was that some teachers did not speak English. It was hard when you did not understand what she explained.

Furthermore, the family was very sweet. Less than in Bogotá, much less involved. Everyone had his / her own life. They spoke no English and my Spanish was not at the right level for the right to speak so it was hard to communicate. The mother of the house was super sweet. It was a nice apartment, good room, and good facilities. Everything was all right.

"Great"

Isabelle peillon

I liked Wilson very much. He was a good teacher and was very friendly. I learned vocabulary and verbs.

I liked Ray because he was friendly, but he did not speak too much. There were many exercises. The better it was for all.

Juliet was a very good but very shy teacher. David was very sympathetic and he organized many things.

The one thing I did not like much was the North Sea because there was noise as the windows were open. The building is a bit far too. It was very windy by the windows. There was no hot water at the shower, but the cleaning lady was very friendly and the kitchen had many things.

I plan to go back next year but not to the North Sea.

A thousand kisses to all,
Isabelle

"Nice activities, not a good structure of learning"

Karina Soares Cavalcanti, opiskelija _ maasta Brasilia

Well, the staff is great, and so is the location and the school. I really loved the activities that the school provide, such as bike riding, movies, etc.
But I don't think the test is efficient, 1 page of test and 3 questions are not able to fit me in the right level, and even after when I moved level, I don't think the teacher was pay attention if I was on the right level, less or more advanced of the other students.
The first teacher I had was amazing, really dynamic and with several activity that made everything so easy and efficient.
The others teachers don't seem like they have a methodology to teach, each day treats a different thing, and I had the same subject repeated over and over again.
Spite of the messy line of learning, I had my Spanish improved a lot.
Other thing that made me very uncomfortable at school, is that there were a lot of students from the same country that kept speaking in their own language at school, in class, in activities. You never know if they are talking or laughing at you, besides, how can we practice if they are always speaking other languages?
It should have a policy of Spanish only at school.

"It's a great possibility to study Spanish in Cartagena!"

Andrea Heller, opiskelija _ maasta Sveitsi

I had a great time in Cartagena with the teachers, the class and the several activities I joined. My homestay family was just lovely and I can only recommend of doing that wich helps you to improve your speaking Spanish. Cartagena as well is a lovely city and you can easily spend a few weeks there without getting bored. Overall a great experience!

"It's a great experience, which gives you much more than ordinary language school at home."

Lukasz Gogolinski, opiskelija _ maasta Puola

School has a very good and safe location. It is right in the old city and not too far from house location. There are many choices when it comes to transportation in Cartagena and they are not too expensive. School and teachers left overall an excellent impression. They were always very pleasant, accommodating, often with a great attitude and smile on their faces. My special recognition and thanks to Mr. Andres and Mr. Jorge for their professionalism and friendly approach. There were plenty of different types of activities each week, something for everyone. Hosting family was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The only suggestion is to have in option (additional charge) an AC in the room when choosing a hosting family.

"Great teacher but too few levels to chose from."

Hege Isaksen, opiskelija _ maasta Norja

The teachers of the school are great! Sindy especially! They are welcoming, nice and very good at their jobs. I am a teacher myself and it is clear that they know what they are doing!

There are too few levels and that means that a lot of people of very different levels are put together in the same class. When I was there we had a group of Americans from a college there to do a summer course. Their grammar knowledge is very good as they have been studying spanish for a long time at college. They do, however, have no real training in language use and it became quite frustrating trying to have real speed conversations with them. Maybe this could give an idea as to what you could do in terms of differentiating.

The housing I have already reviewed before I left the school. My host mother was unwelcoming, gave us hardly anything to eat for breakfast and we (me and the girl I shared family with) were not satisfied.

Cartagena is a beautiful city and I loved it. Would be happy to come back if I could be more challenged in the language next time.

"Do you offer classes for kids ages 9 and 11 from 8AM to 10 AM for one week? I am looking for private classes for each of them. Can you tell me please if you are walking distance to the San Diego part of the old city? The apt that I am looking at is La Casa Del Virrey Eslava and it looks to be by Calle 38 and Calle 7 on the map that I have. Thanks so much! My boys are almost fluent. Hope to hear back soon!"

Lynne Pochurek, opiskelija _ maasta USA
