WHY LEARN SPANISH IN BOLIVIA
Learning Spanish in Bolivia means a true cultural immersion experience, as Bolivia is the most traditional and untouched country in South America. It’s also the country with the highest number of Indigenous population on the continent, and due to its isolated location in the Andes, many areas have remained authentic and unaffected by tourism.
Travelling in Bolivia is still a true adventure – get prepared to spend hours on an overland trip without crossing one other person, or hiking remote treks meeting no one but herds of llamas along the way. Bolivia boasts nearly every possible climate and terrain on earth, from the snow-capped peaks Andes of over 21,000 feet / 6400 meters to the steaming jungles of the Amazon Basin, from the largest salt desert in the world to the rolling green hills of the Central Highlands.
Whether you explore ancient Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca, where according to legends the first Inca was born, or drive across the endless white plains of Uyuni Saltlake, expect to encounter contrasts stronger than in any other country. Moreover, due to the absence of international mass tourism, costs of transport, accommodation and services in Bolivia are a great deal lower than in any European or North American country.
Sucre is one of the most charming colonial towns in Latin America and makes an excellent destination to learn Spanish. It’s among the safest cities in Bolivia and thanks to its compact size easy to explore on foot. As a center for progressive and liberal thinking, in Sucre you get plenty of opportunities to practice your Spanish with the friendly locals. The town is full of little shops, local markets, restaurants and bars and it’s very easy to meet other students and travellers from anywhere in the world.
The Spanish spoken in Bolivia is slow and clear, which makes it easy to understand even if you don’t have much language practice yet. You will see that your new-acquired Spanish fluency won’t be helpful only when exploring the wonders of Bolivia, but in the major part of Latin America. Moreover, Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world and the second most spoken in the United States.
