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.

  • Otavalo und die Umgebung sind wunderschön. Es gibt Wasserfälle, Lagunen und natürlich den Markt, den man auch ruhig öfters besuchen kann, da es wirklich viel zu entdecken gibt. Die Familie und Lehrer waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und haben einem stets geholfen, Unternehmungen zu organisieren und sich in der stadt zurechtzufinden. Das Essen war sehr gut. Sehr frisch, morgensgab es immer Obstsalat: me gusta mucho ;)

  • 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.
