Why study with us?
Teachers at La Lengua are specialists in teaching Spanish to foreigners. Each of our teachers has many years of experience. We aim for the highest standards of service and ensure these are maintained with our program of ongoing, in-house teacher training. The Ecuadorian Ministry of Education and Culture, as well as several international Universities, have also recognized our programs!
Each student receives private instruction and has the opportunity to change teachers every week to get to know different accents. Classes are available at various levels. To begin with, a student’s knowledge of grammar and the spoken language is evaluated to determine which class they belong to. Our schedule is extremely flexible, you can start a course at any time.
Class time is devoted to vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, exercises and conversation. The topic of discussions can be chosen by the students, subjects such as politics and economics as well as history of the country. Each lesson plan comes with an accompanying workbook with reading and writing excercises, grammar explanations and vocabulary lists. At La Lengua we believe that practice outside the classroom is as important as studying at the school. So, we also integrate games and real life practice into lessons, including day trips to city markets to practice shopping vocabulary and museum visits to learn first hand about the culture of Ecuador and its people. The atmosphere at the school is relaxed and friendly.
You can stay with an Ecuadorian family while studying at La Lengua. We work with experienced host families, situated within walking distance or a short bus ride from the school.
Airport pick-up Service
Upon request we provide to our students a transfer from Quito airport to their host family or their hotel. The airport is situated 40 kilometers outside of the city. Please let us know your date, time and flight number of your arrival and we will be there to meet you.
Most travelers do not require an entry visa to visit Ecuador as a tourist for up to three months. If you wish to study for a longer period, the School can assist you to obtain a student visa.
