What former pupils say

  • Ich war 2 Wochen im Instituto superior de español. Für mich war es hier super.  Ich habe das aller erste mal mit der spanischen Sprache Bekanntschaft gemacht und es funktioniert ;) die Lehrer gehen an der Schule individuell auf jeden einzelnen ein und somit holen Sie für jeden das beste raus. Die Klassen sind auch sehr klein. Ich hatte noch eine Klassenpartnerin. Somit konnten wir individuell an den Kenntnissen arbeiten und sie stark verbessern. Im großen und ganzen ist die Schule sehr zu empfehlen.

  • Learning Spanish at this school in Quito as a beginner was a really good experience. i learned really fast and a lot. The combination of Trips around the city, cultural and culinaric events makes learning Spanish a whole new experience. You walk straight out of school and can use what you just learned. In the time of School, you get to know a lot people that form a community and share the daily experiences. The school is extremely organized and gives you enough comfort to learn efficiently as well lets you have enough space and freedom to travel and make your own discoveries. I had a really great = time learning Spanish at the ISE Quito.

  • The school was interesting and I learned a lot in just a short time. I enjoyed to wake up in the morning to go to school and learn something useful. The lessions with Tanja were very structured and well built up. I liked the way how she explains the language and its rules. The notes on the white board are very useful to take your own notes. Her spanish was very clear and I understood almost everything. She knows how to adapt her language, so that beginners can understand her easily! Great teacher!!! The Tours with Washington were also very cool, interesting and litteraly fascinating! He is actually a great guide and you can feel that he likes his job. Furthermore it is important to say that he is a good driver and I felt very save all the time.

  • I've now studied for 5 months in this school. It was a great time! Very very nice teachers. Came here and did not speak a word Spanish and now I reached B1! I'm sad to leave. One day, I'll come back!
