Centro Catalina

Centro Catalina is a recognized quality school with a unique learning experience situated in the most beautiful cities of Colombia: Cartagena de Indias and Medellín

We are passionate
about the language and culture

The Swiss-Colombian founders of Centro Catalina wished to promote language exchange in Colombia. Impressed with the riches and beauty of Colombia, they decided to open a Spanish school in Cartagena and Medellín to promote language exchange in a country that has often been seen by westerners as dangerous and violent.

The founders are graduates in foreign languages from the University of Geneva. They are seriously committed to offer high quality teaching with the best study methods and materials for ELE (Español como Lengua Extranjera).
