If you would like to learn Spanish in South America, Quito is a natural choice for your Spanish language program. Quito was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1985, due to the beauty and historical importance of its Spanish colonial and Inca heritage. If you choose to live in Quito, to learn Spanish at our school, you will see all around you every day, a mixture of Spanish and native cultures, of old and new. This makes Quito a fascinating location in which to learn Spanish, a city with a beautiful old town, yet also a modern, bustling, South American capital. The geographical location of Quito is stunning, lying in a high valley, at 2,800 metres, surrounded by snow-capped peaks. All of this makes Quito an incredible location for a Spanish language course, and students at our school thoroughly enjoy exploring the city, discovering the fascinating history and culture of Ecuador.
