About Us

The Lingua Viva crew

Lingua Viva is Colombia’s premier Spanish language institute with affordable, effective, in-person AND online classes. We are the first and only Spanish language school in Cali, Colombia. Whether studying with us online, or in our Cali location (more locations coming soon), you’ll feel welcome, secure, and confident that you are learning from the absolute best in the industry.

If you do happen to be studying with us in-person, you’ll be able to take advantage of our exciting, well-organized, and popular extracurricular activities. As true Caleños we can be your guide in Cali, the salsa capital of the world. We’ll introduce you to locals, the best nightlife, Colombian cuisine, nearby hikes, and connect you with local volunteer opportunities. We organize and host language exchange events, Spanish-language movie viewings, networking events, pub crawls, and salsa field trips.
