To help your immersion in the local language and culture, our partner school in Sucre offers home stays (you will enjoy a single room with half board in the home of a carefully selected Bolivian family) or a student residence (individual or double room, no meals provided).

About Sucre Located in the Andean highlands, in a valley surrounded by low mountains, Sucre is a small city that’s a pleasure to explore on foot. A university town, known as the center of learning and progressive thought within Bolivia, Sucre has museums, a lively central plaza, shops and restaurants. Sucre and its nearby villages have a sizeable indigenous population that maintain their customs and colorful dress. The city of Sucre was declared a Unesco cultural heritage site in 1991 and it doesn't take long to see why. Beautiful colonial architecture abounds, with many original buildings still intact. Historically the city has also been known as Charcas, La Plata and Chuquisaca, resulting in the nickname of the City of Four Names. As most of the colonial buildings in the city center are whitewashed, the city also enjoys the nickname of the white city.

Timetable Classes are either in the morning or in the afternoon; each with a 30 minute break in between. Each class lasts 60 minutes.

Maximum participants per group 5 students

Activities and Excursions 2-3 organized activities are offered every week. The school also provides a daily schedule of cultural events in Sucre and its surrounding areas, including theatres, museums and festivals, as well as tickets prices. The most common activities and excursions are dance classes, cooking classes, parties and fiestas, Spanish languages videos and movies...

Our Opinion Sucre is a tranquil and fascinating place to study Spanish while learning about Andean and colonial culture. It is an amazing city and you are bound to love it.
