Can't recommend it enough

I arrived in Medellin with a handful of words of spanish, and a desire to learn more. I had read that this city was the ideal place to learn the language - great climate, friendly people, a great social scene, surrounded by the rich and beautiful natural environment Colombia has to offer. With the sole intent of learning another language, exploring an amazing country and immersing myself in latin culture, I started in Course 1 in Spanish for Foreigners at EAFIT University. The campus is lovely, and you have access to excellent facilities - an incredible library, swimming pool, excellent modern gym, tennis courts, cafes, restaurants, computers labs, copy shops, etc. The teaching quality is excellent, the classes and chance to meet other students, both foreigners and locals, was great, and they make a real point of weaving into the course program cultural and historical lessons. I highly recommend EAFIT, and I love Medellin so much I decided to stay. I now run my own business here and my spanish is pretty good, although there is always so much more to learn! My story is a familiar one - as they say - the only risk in Colombia is wanting to stay.

Red Tree Study review

I had an amazing experience in Colombia learning Spanish through a placement with Red Tree. They advised on the best programme for me and then dealt with all the logistics, all I had to do was turn up. It was a fun time and I met some fantastic people and got to see a country which is truly spectacular. If you're thinking of learning Spanish I'd fully recommend Colombia as a great place to go.

Loved my course and Colombia!

Go to Colombia to learn Spanish! Awesome country and loads to see- definitely recommend the beaches at Tayrona and Santa Marta! I really enjoyed my course at Nueva Lengua that Red Tree recommended and booked for me. The teachers and other students were friendly and I learnt a lot and there is a good focus on speaking which is great if you want to travel. And my homestay family (well landlady) looked after me so well and was the friendliest person, as are almost all Colombians. Red Tree were great as well and helped me choose a great school and sort out accommodation too so I'd definitively recommend them.

Phenomenal!

In short, I would say that my experience was absolutely phenomenal. I was fortunate to have a lovely experience at Lulo Films where I was trusted to work on major projects, with clients from the city of Bogota. As a result I felt empowered to learn Adobe Suites for the post-production process. This will help me tremendously in the media industry. Additionally, this internship has been a great opportunity to expand my network to a different continent. The staff at Lulo was kind, supportive and patient. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed working there. I would highly recommend them in the future.

Furthermore, the Red Tree Staff was more than accommodating. I felt that Ginna, Tom, Amy, and Hannah cared about my well-being and my development throughout my time in Colombia.

I loved my homestay, and the apartment was in the PERFECT location. Close to North and Downtown. Of course it was an added bonus to be less than 5 minutes away from my office at Lulo FIlms.

As mentioned, before my time in Colombia with Red Tree has been amazing, and the highlight was my weekend excursion to the coffee region and beautiful countryside in Salento.

Incredible experience!

My time as an intern for Red Tree Study this summer was such an amazing experience. Not only did I have the opportunity to work alongside a talented group of film students, it also allowed me the chance to discover Colombia; a rich and diverse country that has so much to offer! I helped the students with any queries that might arise during their stay and also facilitated the smooth running of the social calendar. This included many exciting activities which allowed the interns to explore different parts of Colombia and learn more about its culture. Running trips to Villa de Leyva (a touristic colonial town just outside of Bogotá), Salento (the famous coffee region), Soacha (where we hiked to the beautiful waterfall located here), as well as more local museum visits, cinema outings and restaurant meals. This undoubtedly gave the students and I a well-rounded experience during our time in Colombia. By supporting the students during their internships and providing them with a rich social calendar, they had a great work/play balance which allowed them to make the most of their time in Latin America. I would highly recommend this program led by Red Tree Study to other film and media students!
