Studying Spanish at Escuela Bellevista has been a wonderful experience. My husband and I took classes for one month and our Spanish grew so much. We loved our teachers Lidia and Sergio! We also made friends from all over the world. Every week there are several activities to participate in. I loved Lidia's free weekly walking tour in Santiago's different neighborhoods. We also had a fantastic time going to Pomaire and Isla Negra with the lovely and charismatic Astrid. Muchas gracias Escuela Bellavista!! Jamie Alison, USA
He two months of intensive Spanish courses I took here left me practically speaking like a native. Teachers are top-notch and very nice, there is always a tea time between classes, great way to make new friends from around the world, and it's in a great neighborhood. If you're looking for a private teacher I highly recommend Maria Christina Herrera!

I had an amazing time in Escuela Bella Vista.
The staff is friendly and is concerned about all the details. I was forced to speak Spanish all the time. They focus in grammar, pronunciation and speaking, so if you want to get fluency in Spanish, you should give yourself an opportunity to study with them.
I highly recommend Escuela Bellavista, because I had unforgettable moments!
Fantastic school and great value. Lots more than just classes. A great place to make new friends, learn, explore, party and laugh. Will definitely go back!James Thorpe , USA
