The teachers are excellent at assessing the needs and level of the students to place them in the right class. The school staff are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable and the classes are very interactive and a great way to learn. Highly recommended school. Will definitely go again

We spent two weeks in Bogotá to improve our basic Spanish knowledge. We could not have chosen a better place to do this than Whee. Our instructor Lorena was really competent and nice, she covered all topics important for travelers (going to the doctor, directions, how to order food, ask for bus tickets, and many more). After one week in the real world of Colombia we feel confident, that we are able to have a perfect trip and maybe even to further improve our understanding and speaking of Spanish over the next 6 months of traveling. Most important is that the classes at Whee didn't really feel like school or learning, it was fun and easy. Many different games and methods were applied to ensure this. Who likes to have some fun in the free time as well, can choose to participate in the activities offered by the very friendly staff, e.g. a trip to the fruit market with fruit tasting or a game of explosive Tejo ;-)To summarize this, it was fun, we learned a whole lot and we totally recommend you to go and accelerate your Spanish learning at Whee institute.

Whee Institute exceeded the expectations I had for a summer Spanish program in every way possible. I was a student for 6 weeks and advanced my Spanish level significantly. I'm not perfect, but I am amazed that I picked up so much in such a short period of time. All the teachers are amazing, but I had Camilo, Marie, Gisela, Lorena, and Angela and really appreciated their willingness to customize material to my needs so I could improve as much as possible. Whee is popular with backpackers and other travelers, but it's also great for students of all ages and levels. The process they use to promote learning and also to meet the individual needs of each student (whether it be in group or private lessons) is so amazing. On my last day, I was very emotional as I was excited to go back to my friends and family in the US, but I was having a difficult time leaving the new friends I made among everyone at Whee. I also have to say that Carolina and Lisa were extremely helpful in making sure the social atmosphere in the school is friendly and also promotes language and cultural learning. They were happy to answer any questions I had about literally anything. Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about Whee. I went to learn Spanish for work and was worried about what school to choose, how it would go, what the homestay would be like. If you're like me, stop worrying and just choose Whee - for 1 week or 8 - the price they charge is INCREDIBLE for the amazing value of education and the wonderful atmosphere. Stop second guessing yourself and make a decision that will enhance your trip, but also your life with the skill of speaking Spanish!

I spent three weeks at Whee working on my Spanish (I learned it 35 years ago when I was a college student, but haven't used it much since then). They got me in the right level and I moved up levels as my Spanish improved. They tailored classes around my strengths and weaknesses. Class sizes are small--in three weeks, I was in a class of three students, and then five students, and then two. The teachers I had were wonderful. They not only taught the language, but helped me understand Colombian culture as well. The administrative staff is also top-notch! It was easy to pay my bill and they had helpful suggestions for navigating around Bogota. I highly recommend Whee and if I have time to study more Spanish, I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

BEST REVIEW
OF THE MONTH

Can I give the school a 5 plus rating?

“Absolutely a great school for learning Spanish. The instructors are excellent. Many classes include going out into the city with your instructor and speaking and interacting with people through interviews. A really tremendous way to learn, which reinforces classroom exercises. In addition, the staff at the school treat you like family”.

READY?

Whee is amazing, and you will never regret studying with us.

Our Story

MARCH 2014

Sebas (our founder) loves Colombia, and he wanted more people to see that we have a really good country and why he is so proud of it. he also wanted to create a company with the objective of making the world a better place and that can be related with his passion of meeting new people and new cultures. He quited his job as a business consultant and rented a house. That’s the origin of Whee Institute.

DECEMBER 2014

Not being happy with making money out of education, Sebas decided to create Whee Institute but it should be a non-profit focused on creating the perfect school

JANUARY 2015

Whee institute officially started with the right education approach. Andy and Luzia from Germany decided in trusting us!

APRIL 2016

We had to move to a new place beacause of the number of students we had. The new neighborhood is amazing!

JUNE 2017

Lis, our Operations Manager started working in Whee! She is just amazing! We also started classroom remodeling 🙂

JULY 2017

Laura started working in Whee managing all our marketing, homestay and other strategic projects. and she is awesome too 🙂
