L'Ecuador è un paese stupendo e Quito una città fantastica, da dove si possono intraprendere parecchi viaggi nelle vicinanze o anche più lontano. Lo consiglierei a tutti! La scuola è piccola, ma questo porta il vantaggio che le lezioni sono (semi)-private, il che è ottimo per l'apprendimento. Inoltre il direttore e gli insegnanti sono simpaticissimi. L'atmosfera nella scuola è quindi ottima. La famiglia era molto disponibile, però avevo contatto solo durante i pasti. Mi sarebbe piaciuto, soprattutto durante la prima settimana, che magari si fossero interessati di più a farmi conoscere la città. Altrimenti sono stata molto bene. C'erano sempre attività nel pomeriggio, per chi era interessato. Inoltre nel weekend venivano proposte un paio di escursioni. Altrimenti il direttore era sempre molto disponibile a dare informazioni.

« Decisamente. Il contatto con i professori e la gente del luogo mi hanno fatto migliorare moltissimo. »
School highlights
« In classe eravamo sempre massimo due allievi, il che ha aiutato tantissimo per l'apprendimento. »
Top tips
« Nelle vicinanze di Quito, andare assoultamente a: Cotopaxi, Mindo, Mitad del Mundo, Centro Historico, Laguna Quilotoa. Se si ha tempo di restare di più, viaggi all'Oriente, alle Galapagos, alla Costa, e molte altre opzioni sono sicuramente destinazioni stupende. »

« Oui j'ai fait des progrès en espagnol, avant de voyager je ne parlais pas du tout l'espagnol. Maintenant je peux avoir une discussion et je comprend le 90% ! J'ai aussi pris de l'assurance et de l'autonomie car vivre dans un appartement seule fait apprendre beaucoup de choses. »
School highlights
« La rencontre avec d'autres cultures, locales mais aussi des pays des étudiants à l'école! J'ai bien aimé le fait que l'école soit petite, cela fait une ambiance familiale et tout le monde parle avec tout le monde. »

In Quito (Academia Columbus) erlebte ich meinen besten Sprachaufenthalt (war ja insgesamt an 3 verschiedenen Orten). Die Schule liegt in einer ruhigen und sehr sicheren Gegend. Kino, Shoppingcentren und Internetcafes sind sehr nahegelegen. In die Mariscal (Touristenviertel) hat man aber rund 20 Minuten mit dem Bus. Die Schule ist gut ausgestattet, mit schöner Terrasse und bei schönem Wetter mit Hängematten für die Erholung. Die Klassenzimmer sind einfach aber durchaus mit dem nötigsten Ausgestattet. Die Lehrer waren sehr freundlich und haben viel Zeit mit uns Schülern verbracht, was ich sehr geschätzt habe und auch das Lernen gefördert hat. Alles tip top! Die Lehrer haben die Freizeitsangebote selber organisiert und durchgeführt, wobei das Spanisch lernen natürlich weiter gefördert wurde. Das Team war sehr hilfsbereit und ging auf Wünsche und Bedürfnisse der Schüler ein. Vielen Dank für die tolle Organisation meiner Reise! Weiter so, ich kann euch echt nur weiterempfehlen!

Top tips
« Im Allgemeinen soll unbedingt gut auf seine persönlichen Sachen geachtet werden. Egal ob am Flughafen, im Bus, im Taxi etc. Ich wurde zweimal bestohlen (Flughafen und einmal im vollen Bus) in Quito weshalb ich dies nur allen empfehlen kann. Nicht nur wichtige Sachen gehen verloren sondern auch das Lernen wird evtl. behindert weil man bei Gedanken dann bei diesem Vorfall ist und etliche Sachen erledigen muss. »

Don Quijote, Quito
Duration: 12 weeks

Ecuador is a fascinating country and probably the most multifaceted country in Latin America. It has virtually everything and spreads from the Amazon rainforest over the Andes to the Pacific coast. The school is well located, the teachers are professional and friendly and the classes are taught in small groups, which is a great opportunity to make significant progress from the first weeks onwards. I met amazing people, whether students from all over the world or Ecuadorians whose culture and mentality I like. My trip to Ecuador was a unique experience and I recommend it to everyone.

Host family
Living with a host family during your stay in Quito is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the Ecuadorian culture whilst having the chance to practise your Spanish daily outside of class in informal and authentic contexts. Our partner school carefully selects local host families and they generally live max. 15 minutes away from the school. You will stay in a single room and have the choice between having half board or full board provided.

Shared apartment
Our partner school also proposes accommodation in a shared apartment, around 15 minutes' walking distance away from the language school building. Staying in a single room, you will share the common facilities with your flatmates, including a large equipped kitchen, a large living room, a terrace and 2 bathrooms. This option represents a very good opportunity to meet international students and to share the experience of a language study stay in Ecuador with them.
Please note: The doors to the rooms in the apartment cannot be locked (only the main entrance to the apartment can be locked).

The school offers a wide choice of social and cultural activities. A visit to Quito will give you the opportunity to discover the Ecuadorian culture, through the sensuality and rhythm of the dances, the rich cuisine or the debates and conferences on the Latin-American world. You can also go to Otavalo on the Pan-American, which is famous for its market; ride horses in Baños, in the Valley of the Andes; or even take yourself to the middle of the world, with the equator only 22 km north of Quito! Not to mention the well-conserved remains of pre-Columbian civilisations, the national park of Cotopaxi or the thermal spas of Papallacta.
