    -Why Tarija
    Other reasons for visiting Tarija for Spanish lessons include:
    Tarija is one of the safest cities in Bolivia. It has a low crime rate and you can safely walk the streets at night. Due to its small size, it is easy to get around.

    Its people are friendly and kind. They want to be helpful to strangers and you will be able to practice your newly acquired language skills with them.

    The climate is great. It has dry winters with clear blue skies and during the summer season it often only rains at night.

    At an altitude of 1,850 meters (6,070 ft) Tarija is a good place to acclimatize before venturing out to the higher elevations of Bolivia.

    It is one of the cleaner cities in Bolivia and is not affected by commercial pollution.

    It is in the main wine region of Bolivia and has easy access to the tropical and Altiplano regions of Bolivia, or to Argentina.

    It still has a unique indigenous population that wears its traditional clothing and enjoys a way of life still close to its cultural roots. The Western World culture hasn’t taken over yet in Tarija.

    -Why Altiplano Spanish

    Tailored Spanish language lessons according to the student’s needs
    To bring the best way of experience for learning to our customers
    -passion for the Spanish language
    -respect for all age, gender, orientation, ethnic and religion
    -costumer value
    -search for perfection
    From our own experience of taking language lessons, and as teachers, we have developed the effective teaching methods used by Altiplano Spanish.
    Instead of relying solely on books and handouts students are encouraged to listen and learn to speak Spanish from the onset, in just the same way that babies learn to use language. In this fashion they learn like a native speaker has learnt.
    We believe that good pronunciation should be learnt by listening to native speakers and grammar ought to be contextualized to enhance its understanding.
    Our focus is on helping students speak the language so that they can use it in everyday conversations and continue to learn of every opportunity they have outside the classroom.
