Description

Learn Spanish in Quito, enjoy your Spanish learning vacation in this colonial city.

Surrounded by mountains, snow covered volcanoes and valleys, Quito is the oldest South American capital and retains much of its colonial aspect. Located 2,800M above sea level about 15 miles south of the equator, Quito boasts a lovely spring like climate year round.

Quito retains a small city atmosphere, as everything is still within walking distance.

Our school in Quito, is set in the residential area of El Batan in a beautiful, colonial-style building just a short walk from the new ECOVIA bus line ("Green" buses powered by natural gas) bus stop, ideal for getting around the city.
