I stayed and studied there for almost three weeks and had a great time. Gonzalo (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation at the school was really good for the price. I took 4 hours of private classes a day and learnt a lot during the 3 weeks. Big thanks to my teachers David and Shirley. They both... More

We spent 10 days learning Spanish with Shirley. We were complete beginners, knowing only a few words to start with. Shirley was an excellent teacher, she was fun, not intimidating and made learning a joy. By the third day we were down at the market putting our newly learned skills to the test. We immediately got results and it was... More

I took lessons here last week with Shirley, and had a fantastic time. I already had a little basic Spanish knowledge and Shirley figured out where I was and my learning speed and gave the lessons the perfect level of challenge. I learnt more in a week than I ever thought I could! Shirley's lessons are fun and best of... More

Disappointed with my overall experience with Open school and only did 4hrs of lessons. Was provided two separate teachers when advised I would get one as you would expect to track your progress. Furthermore was not impressed with the level of service received by Gonzales who runs the front desk. After expressing my disappointment in having two teachers was advised... More

My bf and I took Spanish class at Open Spanish for few days and it was the best experience we had in Sucre. I had 0 knowledge in Spanish, I literally didn't even know how to count 1 to 10 in Spanish and I learned soooo much. At first I didn't really expect much since it was 12 hours of... More

I really enjoyed my week of intensive classes with the amazing Shirley. She was so encouraging and I feel that I have gained a great deal of confidence that will improve my enjoyment of the rest of my travels in South America. I highly recommend this school if you need to improve your Spanish and gain confidence. I genuinely wish... More

My boyfriend and I spent two weeks studying the language here and stayed in their dorm upstairs. We learnt more in those two weeks than we did in an entire semester of Spanish lessons back in the UK! The lessons are reasonably priced, the dorm for an extra 30BS per night is great, and the teachers (we had Shirley who... More

Sucre is a fantastic city to stay for a while and learn Spanish as it is pretty, relaxed and cheap. Open Spanish was fantastic offering semi-private lessons (2 people) for US$5 per person per hour (about the standard going rate in town). They are flexible with times and days. Our teacher Shirley was absolutely amazing and definitely made our experience... More

I took 40 hours of private lessons over nine days at Open Spanish in Sucre in September 2016 and would highly recommend this school. I had four teachers during my stay - Gonzalo, Marco, Shirley and David - and although that may sound like a lot, all four of them were really good in different ways and their various styles... More
