Next Leg

Destination info

The language school is located in Ecuador’s vibrant capital of Quito. The ancient capital of the northern realm of the Incan Empire, Quito is a staggering 2,800 metres and sits at the base of the awe-inspiring Mount Pichincha. Known as ‘Luz de América’: the light of America, Quito has been renowned as an artistic, architectural and literary centre since colonial times and is home to theatres, galleries, museums and restaurants as well as some incredible scenery!

  • Location: Quito, Ecuador

The language school was founded in 2000 and is situated in a great location in modern Quito. The school is an institution created to offer personalised instruction in a group setting in the learning of Spanish as a second language.

 

You will be working with the teachers in groups, which allows your conversational language skills to improve naturally as you interact with the rest of the group. Particular emphasis is placed on flexibility as you can pick the areas you wish to focus on, such as conversation, comprehension or writing. All of our teachers are native speakers with a university degree in Spanish and have a minimum of ten years experience in teaching Spanish as a second language.

 

The courses at the school are suitable for beginners and for advanced students. Once you have completed 300 hours or more you can gain a certificate from the Ministry of Education of Ecuador (internal certificates for courses of shorter duration will be issued on request).

 

Classes are held Monday through to Friday from 8.30-12.30 or 13.00-17.00 so you can choose between morning or afternoon lessons.

Extra Activities: From 1 week

Destination info

The language school is located in Ecuador’s vibrant capital of Quito.

Known as ‘Luz de América’: the light of America, Quito has been renowned as an artistic, architectural and literary centre since colonial times and is home to theatres, galleries, museums and restaurants as well as some incredible scenery!

  • Location: Quito, Ecuador

A cultural event is usually arranged once a week. In the day you can visit museums, galleries and cultural centres. In the evenings you can go out to restaurants, bars, music concerts, theatre, etc. These trips give participants a chance to learn more about Ecuadorian culture, but also give them the chance to get to know other students and teachers better, and of course, to practice their Spanish.

 

Once a week we organise salsa and merengue classes. If you want to take a professional dance course you can attend any of the best salsa schools in Quito (at your expense).

 

Once a week one of our teachers prepares a typical Ecuadorian dish with the students. This is a practical way to learn how to make some of the meals that you may have enjoyed eating whilst in Ecuador. You will see the kinds of ingredients used, and some of the traditional cooking methods. It’s a sociable event which gives you the opportunity to chat with other teachers and students in the school, and above all, to practice using the Spanish that you have learnt in your classes.

FAQ

1. What if I’ve studied Spanish before?

Not a problem! You will take a small test before you start your language lessons to see what level of Spanish you currently have and then we will match you with a level of tutoring that will enable you to improve on your level, be it complete beginner or expert.

Close

2. Can I join as a complete beginner?

Yes. This language school will be perfect for anyone with any level of Spanish, including those who haven’t even learnt any Spanish before.

Close

3. How many people will I be studying with?

Your lessons will be one-to-one tutoring so you will get the very best tailored education to your needs, focusing on aspects you want to learn or work on and taking everything at your pace. If you’d like to learn in a group you can request this but this will only be allowed if more than one of you want to study together and a group won’t usually exceed 3.

Close

4. What will I do at the weekends?

You can do lots of things in Quito and you’ll never be bored or short of things to do! You can visit tourist attractions such as Baños (a small town at the foot of the Tungurahua volcano), Otavalo (the most famous indigenous market in Ecuador, surrounded by beautiful countryside), Cotopaxi (one of Ecuador’s most famous volcanoes), Papallacta (thermal springs, where you can relax in steaming water whilst enjoying views of the Andes). Our team can also help you to organize trips to the Amazon or the Galapagos Islands.

Close

5. How many hours a day do I study for?

You will study for 4 hours per day at the school. Usually this will be 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon but this can vary. After formal tutoring you have free time to do some more practicing and study and you’ll have lots of opportunity to practice at home with your homestay family.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Homestay family was very welcoming.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

Research the destination before arriving, learn some of the language before arriving, and prepare to be challenged.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

The office should have communicated arrival details without me having to chase them up. I had to send several emails before getting important information, and it seemed that my questions were unexpected: where is the school, when is the orientaion, and where, what hours are classes...basic I had thought!

Any other comments?

My Teaching Program Was Better Organised Than My Language One. Shouldn't Be A Difference Within The Same Company.
