Students will be studying at Academia Latinoamericana, a world class institution known for immersive Spanish language courses and Andean culture. It is accredited by the ministry of education in Ecuador and an accredited member of the Latin American Council of Spanish Academies.

Quito, Ecuador is located in the upper region of South America, close to Columbia. It is a remarkable city that infuses South American, European, and indigenous elements. The World Heritage List - a primary authority on recognizing locations of significance - declared Quito as its first city on the list. It is a study abroad location for those who wish to master the Spanish language and gain global work experience during an internship.


1. Quito allows for an adventure from Cloud Forest to the Galapagos Island to tasting chocolate in the birthplace of cacao.

2. If students are wishing to learn a language, find out about culture through food and family, or looking to find a home away from home, a homestay option instead of apartments will help truly master a language while abroad.

3. Quito offers an affordable option for studying abroad, as the cost of living is small in comparison to some of the more expensive European programs.

4. Academia Latinoamericana offers small, personalized class sizes. This allows students to learn at a faster pace due to more focused attention from the native Spanish speaking teachers.

5. Students also have the opportunity to work in an internship internationally in Quito, which expands not only their cultural skills, but appeals to future employers.
