El Camino Spanish School is a community spanish language school located in one of the most beautiful and nice cities in a heart of South America. We're now the only spanish school in Bolivia than offers you a complete real spanish and culture immersion, with 5 classrooms and 25 students capacity on a week. We have the best companies that work with us in the historic old city of Sucre. The town is a big place to explore while you enjoy classes with El Camino.
El Camino provides professional Spanish classes that are both practical & useful from day one using our own in-house developed curriculum. To complement classes and promote Spanish immersion we organize more cultural and social activities than any other school.
Most levels on a weekly basis, as such we usually have classes from total beginner to up intermediate.
Classes start every Monday, every week of the year. Where Monday is a public holiday classes will start on Tuesday. The school is not open on public holidays, during these weeks the 20 hours of Group Classes will be spread over 4 days instead of 5.
If you're a total beginner you'll start in the beginners classes. Otherwise if you have studied some Spanish before then you need to complete a level placement test, you’ll get that test before start your lessons on Monday or the previous week. By determining everyone's level in advance we can ensure all the classes start smoothly on Mondays and why we have the obligation to be very organize for you in every detail.
It's really a personal choice. Some people prefer the social aspect of a group class while others prefer to learn at their own pace with more personal attention. Many students start with group classes and then change to private classes. If you're not sure we recommend you start with group classes, you can always change later on, after the completion of any week. Please note that if you decide to change from group to private classes you will forfeit any discount given for group classes.
Group Classes go ahead with 3 students or more. If you booked group classes and are the only student that week you will be offered private classes at half the number of hours, 10 hours instead of 20. If there are two students you'll be offered a private closed group of 15 hours. In all options you will still cover the same course content.
The last thing you need is a heavy Spanish grammar book to carry in your luggage. That's why we've developed our own Spanish curriculum and you'll also be given handouts in the class. On your first day you'll receive a welcome kit which includes a notebook and two pens.
You'll find the address of our school on the contact page.
At El Camino Spanish in Sucre we organize free activities almost every day of the week. Usually there is welcome meeting, salsa classes, wally ball (local sport), cooking classes, language exchanges and volunteering. The schedule varies from week to week. We'll send the activities schedule every Friday along with the class schedule. On the first days of class we'll explain the week's events. Activities are generally scheduled in the afternoon and may conflict with private class schedules. If you particularly want to attend these activities we recommend you choose group lessons.
(The activities always depend of the available cultural activities of month or week)
Group classes generally have one or two class external to the school in order to promote Spanish immersion and allow students to practice Spanish in real environments.

From the airport to central Sucre it is a scenic 45 to 50 minute drive. At the airport are plenty of taxis and the fee to the main plaza is 70,000 BOB. We recommend you check the rate before entering the taxi. Airport taxis are regulated and so it's very safe to take a taxi from the airport, although they do tend to drive pretty fast. You always can share the taxi with an other 3 persons, that mean the cost its going to divide the total price at four. If need us to pick up you from the airport or bus terminal. Just let us know and we well see the way for help in the way that we can.
Sucre is probably de safes city in Bolivia and is so quite for take walks all over the day and night, one of the newest destinations for tourism in South America.
