Option 1:

In the summer and fall semester we offer a group program for independent students. This means that there is a group of students who arrive at the same time, take classes together and go on excursions together but the students are from different universities and colleges.

Option 2: Create your own program 

A customized program for an individual is a wonderful way to learn a massive amount of Spanish in the shortest time possible. You will take one-on-one classes that will be designed specifically for your level and your language needs. There is also the option of taking classes online prior to coming to Ecuador. Contact us if you are interested in taking classes prior to an in-person experience.

We are always open and flexible to programming elements, our support and facilitation services typically include:

  • Spanish language instruction: all levels, from survival Spanish to courses for native speakers. You can find a few sample course descriptions here but when creating your own program you can request specific coursework. Contact us to learn more. 

  • Homestay families for students: three meals daily, laundry

  • Service Learning, volunteering or internships in schools, foundations and other nonprofits

  • On-site orientation

  • Excursions within Quito and in other parts of Ecuador

  • 24/7 on-call support
