About

If you're ready to take your Spanish to the next level, join Omnia Abroad in Medellin, Colombia!

Medellin was once considered the most dangerous city in South America, and now has the reputation of the innovative and cultural capital of Colombia. You will study Spanish at the University of Antioquia, one of the top universities in the country, with faculty who specialize in teaching international students. In addition to 10 hours of Spanish language instruction every week, you will also have the opportunity to take specialized Spanish courses in academics, medicine, and tourism. Students who are confident enough in their language skills can also take electives in Spanish with local students. 

Outside of class you'll participate in weekly excursions, special seminars, and meetups with locals so you can use your Spanish outside of the classroom. Typical excursions include: 
- Seeing Medellín’s transformation through visits to downtown Medellín, La Casa de la Memoria museum, and Comuna 13
- Tasting the local flavors with community cooking classes and an exotic fruit tour at the Mayorista Central Market
- Witnessing Colombian football fever at an Atletico Nacional or Independiente Medellín soccer game
- Taking a spin on the dance floor with a salsa class
- Trying your hand at tejo, Colombia’s national sport
- Visiting the countryside with trips to a coffee plantation and cacao farm
- Day trip to Guatapé, including a cruise on Embalse El Peñol-Guatapé

Finally, you'll participate in Omnia's Like the Locals series, where we show you how to navigate your new home. Whether it's reloading your transporation pass or taking a trip to the phramacy, you'll learn how to do it just like the locals do.

All Omnia Abroad programs include tuition, books, housing, cultural program/excursions, international health & disaster insurance, local transportation pass, and airport pickup.
