Group classes start every Monday and they finish on Friday. If you only book private classes, you can start on any weekday.

Depending on your group, the class will start either at 8:00, or 8:30, or at 9:00 and will last for 4 hours (break included).

The private classes are scheduled for the afternoon, usually between 12:30-18:30.

There are usually 3-6 students in a group.

Yes, we teach more than 15 levels to ensure that everyone receives the education they need.

You will be sent a placement test, which we will use to assess your level and assign you to a group accordingly.

We teach each level according to the CEFR framework.

We have our own coursebook written by our certified academic staff.

A notebook and a pen can always come handy! But you will receive the course book from us on your first day.


Unfortunately, we don´t have any other way of receiving deposits than Paypal or in-person cash / card payments. This is because payment processors are very problematic with Colombian banks.

Ideal would be to come by in person or ask someone you know with a Paypal account to wire the deposit for you.

You will be able to pay the remainder of your bill on the first day of class by card or cash. As the Colombian bank charges us 4% on all card payments, we have to charge 2.5% on all card payments. The paypal charge on the deposit is 7.5% which is why we will discount 18.5 USD per 20 USD in deposits sent.

If you let us know 7 days in advance that you cannot make it, we can refund your deposit. In case you inform us later than 7 days, we cannot refund you.


You can check in on Sunday after 14:00.

Our packages for those who stay in dorms include only 5 nights (Sunday-Friday) but you are more than welcome to extend for the weekend for an extra 11-14 USD / night.

If you don’t extend, you can check out any time on Friday. 

If you stay for the weekend, you will have to check out by 12:00PM on Sunday.

We have many different dorm rooms with 4-6-8 beds. Some of our rooms have queen sized beds that could also be booked for couples or friends who would like to share.

Yes, we have 20 queen sized beds for the price of extra 12-15 USD per week. In case two people would like to share this bed, they don´t need to pay any surcharge.

Our classrooms are in 4 different buildings (including the hostel), all of them within 100 meters.

Yes, we have 20 private rooms / studios available, with the cost of EXTRA 69-90 USD (in the case of rooms) or 95-135 USD (in case of studios) per week.

If you book a private accommodation, you have 7 nights included (Sunday-Sunday).

Yes, we have community kitchens in our buildings with a fridge, oven and stove.

Even though we love pets, unfortunately, we cannot allow them in the dorm rooms.


Packages that include accommodation also include 2 meals on weekdays, breakfast and lunch.

Yes, we do have vegan and vegetarian options in our restaurant.

Before you arrive

If you would like airport transportation set up, no problem, we can help you with that, just send us an email! The cost is 98.000 COP, which you will have to pay in cash to the driver and they will wait for you with a sign. 

It is important to mention that Blink cannot provide any documentation for a visa application (invitation letters, acceptance letters etc).

We can only take students who are eligible for a tourist permit or who already have a visa. Most European and American citizens are allowed to stay in Colombia for 90 days without a visa.

As we start new students and groups every Monday, our official schedule isn´t released until the Sunday before classes begin.  

Make sure to check your spam folder as our schedule emails often go to spam.
