Why Study Spanish in Ecuador?

Ecuador is the South American capital of Spanish study. The small republic has earned this title for good reason, most importantly because Ecuadorians speak clear, pure Spanish and use much less slang than many South American and Central American countries. Ecuador has also become an increasingly popular country in which to study Spanish on account of its low cost of studying and living, abundant extracurricular activities, and the wide variety of quality Spanish schools available. Free time in Ecuador can be spent in a multitude of exciting ways including volcano climbing, mountain biking, white water rafting, exploring the Amazon, taking salsa lessons, and visiting Indian markets and haciendas to name but a few.

Prices & Course Characteristics

Spanish classes at Ecuadorian Spanish schools generally average from between USD 10 to USD 15 per hour. Tuition fees are usually reduced if you study for extended periods of time or if you study in groups. Almost all schools ofer one-on-one lessons and small group study. If you don’t speak much or any Spanish, don’t worry, the reputable schools, including those listed on our Ecuador Spanish schools page, can provide you with Spanish classes that will make learning Spanish painless and fun. Specialty courses such as business Spanish, medical Spanish or courses on Latin American history and culture are also available with some schools.

The Spanish schools usually offer other services as well. Most schools will prearrange your accommodation, either in a hotel of your choice or with a local host family. Family stays average between USD 20 – USD 25 per day, and offer the added benefit of being able to practice Spanish outside of the classroom. Schools frequently offer lessons in salsa dancing, cooking and Quechua (the main indigenous language of Ecuador). Also, because of its small size, a wide variety of one-day and weekend trips are possible within Ecuador (especially from Quito) and many schools regularly offer such excursions.
