About Babel International Language Institute

BABEL International Language Institute Cartagena offers you a perfect location in the heart of the old town – surrounded by the colonial city wall, just next to the oldest neighborhood of Getsemaní. The school is located between the beautiful and bustling Square of the Trinity (Plaza de la Trinidad) and the vibrating street “Media Luna”.

Around the school one can experience the very core of local life, in particular of the “Getsemanicenses” (residents of Gestsemaní). The square of the Trinity is the star each day, being the meeting point for locals and visitors alike, where the social and cultural life is celebrated. Together with the narrow streets of the neighborhood, its inhabitants and much more, this makes Getsemaní such a unique place in the world – and always worth a visit.

The school provides the students with an amply social area with access to free wifi, computers, a library, refreshments and coffee. On the top floor BABEL has the two terraces “San Felipe” and “Espritu Santo” with outstanding views of several of the landmarks of the city: the colonial wall, the fortress San Felipe (Castillo de San Felipe), the Hill of the Monastery (Cerro de la Popa) and the colorful rooftops and steeples of the old town.

In the school you can find plenty of information about cultural activities, sightseeing and adventure trips. Free advice on the different activities in the city and around is provided.

5 Wochen Intensivkurs Spanisch

Wir hatten uns spontan fuer einen Kurs bei Babel entschlossen, da sie im Vergleich zu den anderen Sprachschulen ein unschlagbar guenstiges Kursangebot zu bieten hatten. Es erfolgte eine leistungsgerechte Einstufung, so dass wir in einen Kurs kamen, der genau unserem Niveau entsprach. Die Klassen waren sehr klein ( 3-5 Personen) und wir lernten in 5 Wochen weitestgehend die gesamte Grammatik und auch Kommunikation. Die Lehrer sind jung, motiviert, didaktisch gut geschult, nett und ambicioniert. Wir koennen diese Sprachschule jedem, der nach Cartagena kommt und spanisch lernen will nur waermstens empfehlen. Besonderer Pluspunkt ist die Lage mitten im historischen Zentrum ( Getsemani) in dem sich alles befindet. Nach der Schule kann man am Strand entspannen oder abends am Plaza de la Trinidad bei einem kuehlen Bier den Strassenkuenstlern zuschauen.
