"I went to Nueva Lengua in Cartagena for a Spanish refresher course. My teacher, Leidys Soto, was excellent -- she was encouraging and patient. She challenged me to go further with my studies and we accomplished a lot in a span of a week. Since then, my Spanish skills significantly improved and I have my teacher to thank for! Also, despite of what you read about Colombia in the papers, Cartagena is a safe city. It is also a history-filled, beautiful city by the Caribbean coast. Its truly worth the trip and the study!"
