Learn Spanish in one of the safest cities in South America!

Welcome to the Academia de Artes y Lenguas. We are located in Arica, in the extreme north of Chile, situated on the boarder of Peru and Bolivia. Here at the Academy you can study "Intensive Spanish for Foreigners", a course tailored to your individual needs.

A number of students of all ages have studied Spanish in Arica with us and have been very pleased with their progress. We have taught students, professional people and families, including young people and children. The lessons are completely personalised so you can focus on the subjects you want to learn.

Every course is individually designed for the needs of the student: you can study from beginner level, to intermediate and advanced levels. We have top-quality teaching resources including books and audio CDs.

We know that some people want to focus on improving their grammar and reading skills, whereas others prefer to work on their conversation skills. We offer a flexible methodology according to your needs.

In our Academy we also teach Portugese, Italian, French, German, as well as Music, for those who are artistically inclined.

The Academia de Artes y Lenguas is a Chilean and Canadian partnership, committed to encouraging art and culture in the city of Arica.

"It's true! I am currently taking an intensive Spanish class here at the Academy. The staff here are so friendly and make you feel more than welcome to this city."

Learn Spanish, relax, have fun...

The Academy of Arts and Languages is situated in the heart of this beautiful, safe city, with a pleasant sub-tropical climate all year round.

Whilst you take classes with us, you can take time to get to know this beautiful city, enjoy its fantastic climate (15º-27º c), check out the local sights and nightlife, sunny beaches, practise sports such as surfing, kite surf and wind surfing, paragliding, or visit its interesting archeological sites, ancient geoglyphs and thousand year old mummies. There is also the opportunity to take a trip into the Andes mountains to see the breathtaking natural beauty: volcanoes, hot springs, one of the highest lakes in the world, unique cacti, as well as the fascinating wildlife (llamas, vicuñas, chinchillas, vizcachas, alpacas and guanacos). In addition, there is a "Salsoteca" called "Vieja Habana" very near to the Academy, where you can dance and take Salsa lessons for a very cheap price.

Regarding food and drink, Arica has two valleys where a large variety of fresh fruit and vegetables are grown. There is also fresh fish and seafood available everywhere.
There are some good restaurants and even two 100% vegetarian places to eat, very close to the Academy. Don't miss out on the freshly squeezed tropical fruit juices!!!
