“I studied at a different school in Cartagena, and what I found at Blink was nothing short of, WOW – one of those rare truly unique experiences I have known. Amazing price, school, & experience!”

“My brain still hurts, but it was all worth it. I was going to study for 2 weeks but stayed for 6 because it was both affordable and effective. Blink took me from zero Spanish to conversational and my 6-weeks there are forever part of me.
Thank you Blink!”

  •   Que chevere! Super! Are my words to describe Blink the Colombian way. Solo quedé por una semana pero pienso que me aprendí mucho. Ahora puedo hablar con la gente de sudmamerica. Stay at Blink, even just for a week, and your Spanish will greatly improve. I couldve easily stayed for 1-2 more weeks. Medellin is a lovely city; Blink Spanish just made it lovelier with its really good paisa atmosphere. Someday I hope to be back! Cheers to Christian and the Blink crew.

  •   It was so hard to leave this place, I actually came running back the same day (... conveniently forgot my headphones...). Every single person who works here is welcoming and friendly, and made my stay in Medellin that much more productive, fun, and unforgettable- from Salsa adventures, to their beautifully cooked meals, finding the best Empanadas (del mundo), going to the football, and meeting inspired people, this place is so much more than just a language school. Thank you all for all the support during my short stay, students and teachers alike! Special love of course for Gavin! Los extraño!

  •   I don't normally write reviews, but I just really enjoyed my time at this place. So, Purple monkey next door was full so I was lucky enough to come across this place that just so happen to be opening. The beds here are fantastic and the one I used was concrete on both sides with it's own light switch and curtain for privacy. It was really nice having a little "cave" all to myself. This place has the best shower I've ever come across in life...hot water is easy to obtain and remains consistent and the water pressure is fantastic...that right there deserves 5 stars. The staff was also amazing and welcoming. My bed was always cleaned and my belongings and clothes which I carelessly threw around my cave were nicely folded and placed neatly together...I wasn't expecting it, but it was much nicer to come back to than how I left it prior. Christian, the owner, was a really cool guy and had plenty of suggestions of activities that I do in town. Natalia from the front desk was great to talk to as well. I didn't have too much time here, but was able to see other students studying and practicing Spanish and could see that it would be a great way to learn. Based on what I saw I would highly recommend this place and would love to come back to learn some Spanish!

  •   Blink Spanish is a very special place. Never in my travels have I ever felt like such a wonderful family atmosphere so quickly. The teaching is fantastic, and there are always Colombians around for you to practise your Spanish. You are guaranteed to learn a lot, and quickly in the environment created here. For the price you pay, the value for money is amazing, especially considering the hours you get and small class sizes. As soon as you arrive you will feel the warmth of superstar owner Christian, the unbelievably kind staff and the fun teachers (especially you Nathalie!), who teach practical Spanish perfect for setting a foundation, or becoming proficient enough to travel, or for becoming completely fluent. The facilities are also fantastic. The showers are also powerful and hot, the big, comfortable bed you get (made every day!) can be curtained off if you fancy a bit of privacy, and the wifi is really reliable. That's not to mention the awesome location in the safest places in Medellin with a great nightlife. Despite reaching the level of Spanish I hoped in my two weeks here, leaving this place has been one of the hardest things about travel. You go in hoping to pick up Spanish, and you'll leave feeling like you had a family in a home and people you'd love to come back for.

  •   I spent a little over two months in Medellín and took classes here the whole time. Both as a live-in full time student, and when I was living in Laureles taking only privates. Not only did I drastically improve my Spanish but I also feel like I made some fantastic friends here. No matter whether you're starting from scratch or trying to get over a plateau, Christian and his team are definitely highly recommend by me. I will definitely be back in the future.

  •   Easily the highlight of my trip. Such a communal feel, the level of teaching is superb and everyone is really friendly. You will most likely extend your stay. 10/10

  •   I worked with Blink House for my first 2 weeks in Medellin, and it was such a great way to kick off my 2 months of language learning here. The language instruction was great, and I felt like it did a great job of keeping up with the pace I was learning at. I also love the Blink House space and vibe. Great neighborhood, pretty much in Poblado, but just off to the side, in the quieter, quaint Manila neighborhood, and a short walk into the heart of Poblado, with all it’s nightlife. Great restaurants around Blink House, too!

  •   I was privileged to be the first student of the Spanish school at Blink and it was a great experience! I had previously been at another Spanish school in Medellin but I had some basic gaps in my knowledge. Blink helped me to fill these gaps as well as learn a great deal more. There are rules and words to add to your vocabulary written throughout the house so even when you're not in class you are still learning. Also the breakfast and lunches are delicious and nutritious and all the staff are wonderful including Gavin! I would highly recommend this place to any seeking to learn Spanish or just as place to stay.

  •   I never had so much fun while learning a language. And I never progressed that fast. Blink has not only developed a concept of teaching that makes learning fun, but also created an atmosphere in the school and hostel that is both joyful and supportive. I enjoyed my time here a lot and even came back for another week! That's a high five, Christian & Team, you're doing an awesome job! Thank you!

  •   Great place to learn Spanish in Medellin! Loved the concept of school / hostel and learned quite a lot of spanish in my three weeks. Will never forget the time at Blink!

  •   Just finished my 2nd week at Blink. In that short amount of time, my speech became more fluid and could talk in any tense (pasado o futuro). As soon as you wake up...spanish. The spanish immersion is no joke! Surrounded by Spanish speakers, tools, words, and other diligent students unlocks the language quick. Doing research.... it was obviously the most afforadable, especially for how small the class is and how many in-class hours you recieve. Plus, you're in Medellin... El Poblado... its awesome. The employees are incredible and do their absolute best to make you comfortable and happy. And Christian y Gavin, los jefes, is truly an amazing man. He is the heart of the organization and will do whatever it takes to improve yourself. I highly recommend Blink! Hazlo!
