Our partner school is located at the foot of San Cristobal Hill, the city’s largest park.

About Santiago de Chile Santiago de Chile is a bustling, modern capital nestled in a valley amidst the ever-present backdrop of the majestic Andes mountain range. One of Latin America’s main financial centers, the city is home to about 40% of the country’s population. You will find the inhabitants of this very safe and comfortable city friendly and hospitable to foreigners. Santiago’s climate is mild and Mediterranean. Although winters are mild, when it rains in Santiago, it’s snowing in the Andes, and for those who like to ski, you will be glad to know that the ski areas of Valle Nevado, Colorado and La Parva are only an hour away. The coast west of Santiago is beautiful and offers numerous beaches, resorts and golf courses. In theory you could go skiing, play tennis and lie on the beach all in the same day!

Timetable Classes are available mornings and afternoons, and each class lasts 55 minutes.

Maximum participants per group 8 students

Our Opinion Like many Latin American cities, Santiago de Chile is defined by its coexisting contrasts: colonial and modern architecture, energizing street scenes and parks, elegant shopping and earthy markets, exciting nightlife and romantic restaurants. With ski slopes and beaches a short distance away and all that a world capital has to offer on a daily and nightly basis, Santiago de Chile is a stimulating and exhilarating place to study Spanish and learn about Chilean culture.
