Sustainable Bolivia provides high-quality training for students of all levels and ages. Standard instruction is private, allowing for a tailor-made curriculum to meet the needs of each student. Teaching is balanced between the areas of writing, reading, and grammar; however we place special emphasis on developing conversation skills. In addition to learning Spanish from a textbook, we incorporate topics such as Bolivian history, religion, and current social/political issues into the curriculum. Students also have the opportunity to explore Cochabamba accompanied by their language professor.

As a registered non-profit all the proceeds from our language school are reinvested to help support the work of our organization. Our professors receive a sustainable living salary, allowing us to employ the most qualified teachers in Cochabamba (all SB professors have university degrees in linguistics).
Setting Description:
Our intensive language program provides 20 hours per week (4 hours per day) of one-to-one instruction. Classes take place during our office hours of 9:00 AM to 7.00 PM.
