I first studied Spanish in a school here in Medellin but it was expensive and I felt like livestock. Then I found Blink. There is no comparison to the immersion learning experience of blink. My teacher, Emanuel (and even the owner) were there every day to push me along. They’re an amazing group who really care. The difference was white and black, night and day.
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!
The value of Blink is amazing, compared to the other schools in Medellin. From day one, it was clear to me that they’re not just doing this for profits, they really believe in what they do and what they do works.
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 and experience!
Learn Spanish in the Heart of Colombia
90% of our students chose this option to learn Spanish. It is complete and there are NO additional costs. Other schools will offer low cost group classes, but they don´t have their own hostel or restaurant and will have you paying extra for everything from private classes to your study materials. Blink includes everything. You will not find a better value anywhere in Colombia.
If you know you do better in private classes, or are a unique learner, we have great prices in private study programs as well. If you select private classes, it is important to know that many weeks Blink only offers private study in the afternoons (after lunch time).
Our Classic Blink Package includes 20 hours of daily classes and two private classes / week. Every student needs some one-on-one attention and that is why private classes are included for every Blink student. This improves the efficiency of each group class and helps maximize your study.
Our hostel is students-only (this is important in a party place like Medellín). 24 hr reception, and super comfortable/clean/secure. Our delicious Colombian meals (served in our very own restaurant) will keep your brain fed and ready to learn.
Our weekly La Comuna 13 tour (Street graffiti) is free – that alone will save you 40.000. We also dance salsa, play tejo, and visit parts of Medellin often overlooked by many tourists.
Learn faster and save money as you EAT, SLEEP, and LIVE the immersion Spanish experience that is all about fun, pushing your personal limits, and creating new chapters in your life journey. Blink is not a total profit-model school like most of our competitors. We profit share with each employee (24), house employees, and take an active interest in volunteer work and being strong members of our community. Our social model and high wages attract the best employees, professors, and students in all of the city. ... [Read More]
Located in Medellin’s El Poblado neighborhood (Barrio Manila), we provide a safe, familiar, and immersive Spanish learning experience.We are surrounded by great restaurants and cafes, one block from the El Poblado police station, supermarkets, and a short walk from Parque Lleras, one of South America’s best parties. It can be hard to study in Medellin as it is a party 7-days-a-week city. Hostels party all night, and sleep can be hard to come by. At Blink every student is dedicated to making the most of their stay/learning experience and because only students are allowed to stay, you can know that Blink is a comfortable and peaceful place to study. During the week, Blink is asleep by midnight. Study during your weeks – enjoy the party during the weekends. Finally, to explore Medellin you want to stay close to the metro, we are just a few blocks from the El Poblado station.
Blink is a place to learn, a place to enjoy, and a place you will remember for the rest of your life. Join us, we love what we do and we want to be a part of your Spanish-learning journey! [CLOSE]
