I visited both Spanish schools in Quito and Cuenca during my stay in Ecuador. Both schools have very friendly and helpful staff. The study environment is lovely and very cosy.
It is possible to take classes in small groups, private classes or follow courses together with family or friends.
The teachers use different kinds of study materials as written & oral exercises, texts, videos and even music… In that way you learn a lot about the Ecuadorian culture as well. I learned about the different Ecuadorian traditions and holidays. Moreover I learned about local products and how traditional dishes are made.
The teachers are very patient and helpful and adapt their courses a little to what you need or like to learn the most.
The staff at the schools also help with planning activities and excursions during the weekend or can help planning a further trip.
Furthermore both schools are located in the historical centre of the cities Quito and Cuenca and are very easy to reach.
I had such a great experience at the Yanapuma Spanish School and I would highly recommend it to solo travellers, couples, groups of friends and families.
