What former pupils say

  • I'm very satisfied with the Instituto Superior de Espanol Spanish School. Great teachers, great accomodation in host family :)
  • Never made a trip, which was that well organized. You're amazing Eugenio! Sorry for asking you hundrets of questions before traveling to Ecuador. But I finally did it, and it was amazing. I really enjoyed my time in Otavalo. It's such a lovely town and I felt much safer then in Quito. But I didn't hat enough time to visit Galapagos. That's sad :/ But maybe I'll come back next year. And of course I'll aks hundrets of questions :) Saludos Anna de Alemana
  • I stayed for 2 weeks at the instituto and it was great! I had group lessons in the morning and privat lessons in the afternoon and bouth helped me a lot and I aproved my spanish. I had Angelica and Tito as my teachers and they were very nice After the school you can go to salsa lessons or cook typical food for free. If  you have any problems they try to help you.

  • I had a great week of private classes at the school in Quito. The lessons were jam packed full of great information and I learned a lot. The four hours were completely full with useful information and practice.

  • Thanks to all the teachers and staff at Instituto Superior de Español.  Before arriving, I knew very little Spanish.  The teachers are very good and extremely patient.  In addition to learning grammar they also encourage conversation. It has been an incredible 2 month adventure and I highly recommend this school for anyone seeking to learn/improve Spanish.
