Spanish School in Ecuador
Our Spanish school in Ecuador is located in the Southern region of the country, in the city of Cuenca. Tourists consider Cuenca to be the most beautiful city in Ecuador. Situated in the uplands of Ecuador, about 8,500 feet above sea level, Cuenca provides breathtaking views from any part of the city, and its historic center is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The history of the city dates back to Pre-Columbian times; a walk around the city is like traveling through time, giving students a glimpse of what life was like before the Spanish conquest. Every building, corner, or street has an interesting story, a secret to reveal, a riddle to be solved.

We are growing older, but our enthusiasm when welcoming new students remains unchanged. Come learn Spanish and celebrate our 25th anniversary with us while you’re here. Our devoted team of teachers will help you practice the language and feel the city’s energy in every activity.
The school is located between the new and the old part of the city, so it’s the perfect starting point to get around. The school is housed in an early-twentieth-century brick building and features beautiful decorative wood details and large windows overlooking the Tomebamba river.

Students are placed in groups according to their level of Spanish, which is assessed in advance through our placement test.
