Courses in Montañita

One of the great advantages of learning Spanish at our Montañita school is the small class sizes. The Standard course (20 lessons per week) has a maximum class size of only five students. In such small classes, you’ll receive plenty of attention from your highly-skilled teachers, so your Spanish will quickly improve! If you’d like to learn at an even quicker pace, Private Lessons are available too.

For both beginners and experienced surfers, Montañita is one of the best surfing locations in South America! It offers reliable waves and a real surfing culture. Our school’s Spanish & Surf course comprises five 90-minute surf lessons with a professional instructor (plus board) per week, to be taken in conjunction with a Spanish language course.

Other activity courses run by the school include kitesurfing, scuba diving, Salsa and yoga. Any of these programs can be combined with a Standard Course or individual tuition.

Why not give something back to the local community as you learn Spanish in Montañita? Anybody can take a Volunteer Work program, helping in schools, clinics, nurseries or veterinary practices. If you’re a medical student or professional, you can gain experience in local hospitals after taking specialist Medical Spanish lessons in the morning.


Enjoy the convenience and comfort of our school’s traditional cabañas! Complete with en-suite bathrooms, hammocks and fans, the cabañas are located less than five minutes’ walk from the school, beach and town centre. They share a kitchen, outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi!

If you want to develop your language skills as quickly as possible, we recommend that you live with a local host family. Our school only chooses host families who are friendly, hospitable and eager to help you practice your Spanish!
