Learning Spanish abroad in Sucre, Bolivia is one of many language immersion programs offered by AmeriSpan. A land-locked country that straddles the Andes, Bolivia is known as the Tibet of the Americas. From the snow-capped peaks of over 21,000 feet, the land descends through stark plateaus to the semi-tropical jungle. Its phenomenal landscapes, colonial architecture, indigenous cultures and the legacy of its ancient mysterious civilizations offer an extraordinary travel experience. In addition, Bolivia has large cities and remote villages; Lake Titicaca, the highest inland sea; and a fascinating culture and history. While there are relatively few tourists, it is quite easy to travel throughout the country.
Learn Spanish Language in Bolivia:
Sucre is the beautiful judicial capital located in the Andean highlands. It is known as the “White City of the Americas” due to its numerous colonial buildings, all of which are painted in white and topped with shiny red tile roofs. Set in a valley surrounded by low mountains, Sucre is small (pop. 150,000) so it is very easy to explore on foot. A university town, known as the center of learning and progressive thought within Bolivia, Sucre has museums, a lively central plaza, shops and restaurants. Sucre and its nearby villages have sizable indigenous populations that maintain their customs and colorful dress.
Sucre Spanish School Facilities:
The school is in a beautiful colonial building located in the heart of Sucre’s city center, one block away from the main plaza close to virtually everything of interest in the city. Classes are held in a 2-story building with 8 classrooms, a kitchen, a salon for videos, a nice colonial patio, and a small terrace. Capacity is 50 students/day.
What We Like:

- School organizes activities
- Low cost of living

What We Don't Like:

Half are from Europe and half from North America. The majority are students and independent travelers of all ages.
This school is recognized by Bildungsurlaub in Germany and approved for academic credit by several US Institutions including Brookhaven College
