Sucre is a pretty colonial town in the highlands of Bolivia and the constitutional capital and seat of the Supreme Court of Bolivia. Located in front of a beautiful mountain scenery, the "white city" is home to almost 300,000 inhabitants and attracts with a friendly atmosphere.

Located at almost 2,800 meters, Sucre has a very pleasant, temperate climate and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in South America with its well-groomed squares and parks. The old town with its white buildings is one of the best-preserved Spanish colonial cities in South America and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991.
Sucre looks like a large open-air museum and has numerous cozy restaurants, bars, cafes, small shops and markets, where you can buy pretty handicrafts.
The numerous “plazas” invite you to linger and to watch the everyday life. Many residents of Sucre are of indigenous origin and often dress in their traditional costume, which makes the cityscape colorful and diverse. Sucre is also a university town and offers a lively student- and nightlife.
Around three hours from Sucre, you can find the city of Potosi with the 'Cerro Rico' (the rich mountain), one of the most important silver mines in the world. In the 17th century, Potosí was the most populated and richest city in all Latin America because of the silver. It is said that the streets in Potosi were once paved with silver - have a look for yourself. Sucre and Potosi are important places in Bolivian history.
Not only is human history very interesting in and around Sucre, you can even discover real dinosaur footprints on a paleontological site!

Classes are based on the four pillars of grammar, listening, speaking and writing.
