About us

Why Macondo?

The name Macondo is closely related to Colombian culture. A famous poet and writer named Gabriel José García Márquez wrote a book for which he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. In the Book Cien años de Soledad he writes about the history of the village Macondo and enchants with his Realismo Mágico the whole world.

Mission: We want to offer qualitative and accessible online spanish classes with native speakers on the other side of the world.

Vision: Our goal is to connect people all over the world and to spread the Colombian warmth and vitality!

Founder

Alessia Kramer

Born and raised in Switzerland, I fell in love with the Latin American culture and decided in 2018 to emigrate to Colombia. I live in Bogotá and work as a language teacher. My vision is to bring Colombian culture to other parts of the world. Thanks to modern technology, online classes are an increasingly popular offer. There are no limits and we can connect to each other through the whole world.

I want to offer the possibility to receive qualitative and entertaining Spanish lessons with native speakers on the other side of the world. And who knows, when the global situation changes, you may soon get to know your teachers personally. 😉

Co-Founder and Academic Director

Angélica Meza

I was born in Barranquilla, a city at Colombia's coast, but I've been living in the capital Bogotá since 5 years. I've always been fascinated with languages and cultures and in my opinion, languages are a bridge between people. A bridge that shows us a new and interesting way to different perspectives. That's why I love to travel and also lived in Germany for a while.

I have 8 years experience as a language teacher and it gives me great pleasure to get to know people from all over the world and not only to share my language but also my culture!
