Learning Spanish abroad in Cuenca, Ecuador is one of many language immersion programs offered by AmeriSpan. Ecuador was named for its position on the Equator and is bordered by Colombia, Peru and the Pacific Ocean. Not many countries as small as Ecuador have such diverse climate regions. This country has the tallest active volcano in the world, great white sand beaches, tropical rain forests, deep crevasses, colorful Indian markets and is well known for its social and political stability.
Learn Spanish Language in Ecuador:
Located in an Andean valley, Cuenca is a town of striking contrast. It has successfully preserved its colonial past from its cobbled streets, churches, pre-Hispanic ruins, museums, and colorful Indian markets. Colonial Cuenca is just across the Tomebamba River from modern day Cuenca with modern office buildings, art galleries and two universities. Home to many scholars and artists of Ecuador, Cuenca is said to be the “Athens of Ecuador.” Relatively undiscovered by English speaking tourists, this program offers an excellent opportunity to learn Spanish.
Cuenca Spanish School Facilities:
The school is in a quiet residential neighborhood, with several commercial areas nearby, with shops and restaurants for students to explore. It is in a converted house, surrounded by gardens and has seven classrooms and a very nice cafeteria, where students can connect their laptops for free WiFi service. The garden is a great place for students to relax and study and sometimes becomes a venue for classes, barbecues and small parties.
What We Like:
- Private room
- Laundry service
- Beautiful colonial city
- Diverse mix of students
What We Don't Like:
- 45-minute sessions, less than most programs
50% of the students are from Europe and the average age is 30.
