Learn Spanish in Bolivia

If you're interested in volunteering in this destination, please contact us first before applying.

In economic terms, Bolivia is a poor country. Its riches lie in its history, its geographic and cultural diversity, and, of course, its people. It is an ideal destination for anyone seeking to develop their Spanish language skills. On the Spanish Language Course in Bolivia with Projects Abroad, you will be based in the city of Cochabamba, which has an enviable spring climate year round.

You will have 15 hours of classes a week with a qualified teacher on a one-on-one basis. You may also be paired with another volunteer who speaks the same level of Spanish. You will learn quickly - especially because you will also have plenty of opportunities to practice your new skills while staying with your Spanish-speaking host family.

The intensive classes are tailored to suit your ability. Whether you are a complete beginner or have been learning Spanish for several years, being surrounded by the language every day will help your skills progress in leaps and bounds. After your lessons and homework, there is plenty of free time for you to explore the local area.

If you would like to develop your new skills further in a more practical setting, you can join a Care or Teaching project. If those are not suited to your interests, we have a wide range of worthwhile volunteer projects and internships available in Bolivia.

Alternatively you can undertake a short 14-hour or 30-hour course in Spanish. These courses are tailored to your needs and run alongside your main volunteer project. If you are planning on volunteering abroad for twelve weeks or more, you could also complete a 60-hour course alongside your volunteer experience.
