During the next 2 days of classes, a definitive evaluation is made and according to that we adjust the teaching materials. The school also offers courses and material adapted to the interests of the student. Thus, from a medium/advanced level on, topics of the choice of the student can be included.

Living with a host family is a perfect way to practice language skills, complementing the learning process. Equally important, sharing with the family allows you to assimilate aspects of Bolivian culture in a friendly and safe place. At Runawasi we emphasize that the process of learning a language is enhanced by living with a local family and by the cultural experience resulting from it. You will learn Spanish, Quechua or Aymara much faster.

The start dates of intensive and standard language courses are generally flexible. If you have some basic knowledge of the language, you will be able to start any Monday of the year at almost any school. If you are a total beginner, courses usually start once or twice a month.
You should be aware that language schools have more students in July and August than during any other time of year, which means that course fees, housing prices and the overall cost of living are often more expensive during this time. If you would like to book a course in July or August, you should do so very early: schools have limited spots and might be booked well in advance for the high season. Your chances to get your preferred housing type are also greater if you book your course early. Housing options near the school are especially difficult to secure in the summer and tend to fill up quickly.
Language courses during the low season (September to June) are not only less expensive, but also have smaller classes. If you are able to wait to take your courses during this time you will pay less for your courses, and  you may even receive better housing, since demand is much lower. Please, review this information within the language course details on the language school page.
 You can find the availability status underneath each price on the school / host page. Nevertheless, if you submit a reservation request and your place is not available, the deposit paid will be 100% refunded.
