I took a few weeks of online classes at Whee, both one-on-one with a teacher for some weeks and in a small group class for other weeks. In that time I had a few different teachers who were all a little different in the way they went about things but none of the teaching was ever old fashioned or boring, there were no text books and the classes were fun and engaging. The online classes were excellent and I can’t recommend Whee highly enough, I hope to return for more online classes soon and I’m excited about the idea of taking classes in person soon as well. Gracias a todos en Whee!

I live in the US and have been taking online group spanish classes with Whee for 4 months now during the Covid pandemic and I absolutely love it! With everything closing down, I needed something to do with all my free time and I have always wanted to be fluent in spanish. Before this I had studied spanish in high school and in college but never got anywhere close to being able to hold a conversation and now I am so much farther!Usually online courses sound boring and hard but the teachers here do a great job at keeping you engaged with conversation and different games. I am learning a lot about Colombia, Latin America, and the other countries my classmates are from (France, China, Brasil, etc.). The largest class I have had so far had 3 other students and you usually get a new teacher every couple weeks. At first this really worried me, but now I think I have studied with 7 different teachers and with each one you learn more and get the opportunity to practice with more people.Although I haven’t been able to experience Whee in person, these online courses have been better than I ever imagined. I like that I have been able to take these courses while working full time, not feel too stressed and make significant progress. I have found a Colombian restaurant closeby and cannot wait to visit Bogotá and meet everybody in person.¡Gracias por todo Whee!

I attended Whee Institute for about three months, it was a special experience during my time in Bogota. The teachers are engaging, professional and friendly, whilst each offers their own style of teaching, constantly keeping classes engaging and offering different cultural insights. The pattern of the classes and activities also make this institute a great place to learn spanish and connect with other expats.

When you sign up at Whee, you aren't just starting to "go to school for Spanish", you are joining a group of people that think in a creative way. The experience that I had at Whee showed me that the way that I like to learn is very common. No text books and interactive learning made every day fun to look forward to. The examples that all of the teachers used of things that relate to your every day life in Colombia helped in everything I did and everywhere I went. Being that everyone in the school had like minds, the friendships bonds that I established made my experience in Colombia more than I expected. Thanks so much to Whee for giving me the foundation I need to enjoy a conversation with the beautiful people of Colombia and for the friendships I will have for life.

There is something in our DNA that makes us unhappy when we don’t search for something unknown. Spanish was almost unknown to me before I opened the door of Whee institute. I felt comfortable and I stayed. Now I feel even more comfortable because thanks to the Whee team I can speak Spanish! May the knowledge prevail!

I spent five weeks studying here in the am classes and I learned so much. Not only were the classes super helpful, but they were also really fun. I made friends, liked all my teacher, and highly recommend giving this place a shot.

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.

I literally had the best time doing online group classes with Whee! I was super nervous at times, literally every single teacher put me at ease! After 3 months of lessons, I can actually hold a decent conversation with spanish friends. Could not recommend these classes more, feel like I’ve been laughing for 3 months while improving my Spanish at the same time! xx

The teachers at Whee Institute are truly amazing! They pushed me out of my comfort zone each class and my Spanish advanced more that I ever thought it would. The classes were very engaging and exceeded my expectations of online learning. I would highly recommend this school!

I absolutely loved taking online Spanish classes through Whee Institute! The classes are small and personalized with new activities every day. The teachers are knowledgable and fun to interact with and they are quick to implement suggestions from the daily feedback surveys. I would recommend Whee Institute to any of my friends who want to take Spanish classes online! Thank you to everyone at the Institute who taught me and organized classes!

Whee Institute takes pride on innovative and fun pedagogy in Spanish teaching program. The teachers are well prepared, focusing on your personalized needs and tailoring each class based upon their prior class observations on your strengths and weaknesses. That being said, instead of relying on our teachers too heavily, I have always believed that good students will make the teachers even better. “Se necesitan dos para bailar tango.”
It was a lot of fun!!!! I am immensely grateful to all of the teachers that has shaped the development of my Spanish.

I took 2 weeks of courses with Whee back in January 2020 in Bogotá and had an absolute blast. The teachers were engaging, the material was fun, and I felt like my Spanish really improved in those two weeks. I recently was able to take 4 weeks of online courses with Whee in October 2020 and I really like their online format. Usually I’m not a fan of online classes but the teachers did a great job keeping the material just as fun as in the classroom and it turned me around to language learning online. Plus it is super convenient. I definitely recommend this language school; they’re awesome!

Whee Institute is an invaluable resource if you are wanting to learn to confidently speak, read and write Spanish quickly. I started with 0 knowledge and was put in a class with others at the same level. The classes are so relaxed and fun and the teachers are amazing. Great way to meet people from all over the world too. Would highly recommend!!

I have taken online classes from Whee for a little over 3 months and have loved them! I can tell my Spanish has improved a lot and others have noticed as well. The classes have been really well structured and never boring. The teachers are all very personable and helpful. I highly recommend if you are on the fence!

I really enjoyed learning spanish with Whee. My teacher Katheryne was really wonderful! I loved class because it was so casual and fun: we would play games, and also just discuss our lives wherever we lived. It was also super fun to be in class with people from all around the world, especially during a time where it’s easy to feel pretty isolated 🙂 Overall, I loved Whee and would definitely do it again. I was able to get more confident with my spanish and also have a fun way to talk to and meet new people. If you’re looking for a fun educational activity during social distancing, I’d give Whee a try!

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 🙂

March 2018

We renewed all of our classrooms, new furniture, graffities and more

March 2019

We launched our online group lesson live! having the same amazing results as Whee offline methodology🙂
