The Programme

Spend 1-4 weeks in Quito and participate in daily group Spanish lessons. You’ll learn in a beautiful orange house in the La Mariscal area, with several class rooms and communal spaces. Freshly prepared coffee is available, as well as comfy sofas and a ping pong table. You may even enjoy a few lessons beneath the lemon tree in the garden!

You’ll be provided with all the necessary materials for your classes, including a grammar book, and you’ll soon see your language skills improve! Learning and practising every day is the only way to get better, and you’ll be completely immersed in the language and the culture of Quito on this experience!

Excursions and Activities

Alongside your classes, you’ll also head out on exciting excursions and take part in great activities. These optional activities include weekly cocktail gatherings, free salsa classes, city tours and market visits.

Free Time

In your free time, you can head into the La Mariscal neighbourhood with your groups and check out the restaurants and bars, or kick back at your accommodation and watch TV. The best way to improve your Spanish is to keep speaking it, so make sure you interact with locals, watch Spanish news, and push yourself to keep learning!


Once your classes have finished, you can explore the rest of this beautiful country! Why not join our fantastic Explore Ecuador trip and explore the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes Mountains, or head over to the Galapagos Islands on our Galapagos Islands Adventure?
