Departing from the school in Quito, students' travel with experienced and qualified teachers who also act as guides on the daily excursions. Since its inception in 1998, this program has won great acceptance with our students who feel more comfortable exploring the country with a knowledgeable and trusted guide at their side whilst learning Spanish.
The traveling classroom option offers itineraries of 1-2 weeks. Each day students´ will receive 4 hours of classes combined with free time spent enjoying a variety of activities (biking, hiking, bathing in waterfalls and hot baths, visiting markets, etc.) and traveling from place to place on public transport. Popular itineraries combine the attractions of the Sierra (Andean highlands) and the Oriente (Amazon rainforest).
All practical details (e.g. hostel bookings, timetables, etc.) are taken care of by the teacher allowing the students to relax and fully enjoy the sights when they are not studying! The day before departure, students and teachers meet at the school in Quito to acquaint themselves and to go over the trip plans. For the active tourists this program is a must, packed with fun, adventure and of course lots of time to practice Spanish with your personal Spanish teacher and guide.
We take great pride in our teaching standards and employ only the highest caliber staff, each teacher holds University degrees in linguistics and Latin American literature and most have obtained several years of experience teaching Spanish to foreigners. We would like to emphasize that with the Instituto Superior de Español you will receive the very best of Spanish language tuition, from the best and most certified teachers Ecuador has to offer.
All of our teachers are native Ecuadorians, which allows our students to gain invaluable insights into Latin American history, culture, and traditions. While traveling your teacher will show you the best way to communicate in Spanish with the people you get in contact with, like when taking a bus or in a restaurant with the menu. You will be constantly practicing Spanish!
During the free time, you will be exploring Ecuador and having fun in activities like biking, hiking, bathing in waterfalls and hot baths, visiting markets, horse riding, doing canopy or bunging jumping, etc.
