On-line one-on-one conversation classes in Spanish I have been doing 2 one-hour Conversation Classes a week using Zoom since last March. It has been a terrífica experience for the following reasons: I can speak Spanish with a nativa speaker without having to travel to a Spanish-speaking country ( somewhat difficult during COVID!). My teacher Zayra Medina is excellent, very knowledgeable of her subject, patient and good-humoured, really a pleasure to talk to. She is student-centered, is mindful of my progress and adjusts to my changing needs. These classes are lots of fun!

I had a fantastic experience at Instituto Superior de Espanol. I had studied at a similar type of school/homestay in Guatemala and didn't learn half as much there as I did the first day here. My teacher, Sayra, was not only friendly and made the lessons fun, but she was able to identify exactly what my needs were (I am at the intermediate level) and teach me what I needed to know in a completely understandable manner. She filled in holes in my understanding of Spanish that no other teacher has been able to do so far. My confidence in speaking has risen, my grammar and vocabulary improved greatly, and I didn't even mind doing the homework she assigned nightly! I could not be more pleased. Eugenio, the director, was timely and thorough in his correspondence with me while I was making plans to study there, and picks up students at the airport himself, even at 12:30 at night! He does so to engage the student in conversation so as to be able to properly place them in their classes at the school. His assessment of me was spot on, not only for what level I needed at school, but also for the homestay he placed me in. I am an older student (over age 65) and he placed me with an older couple with whom I got along fabulously! They could not have been more kind and helpful, and we had wonderful discussions in Spanish about politics, sociology, culture, economy. They suffered through my bad Spanish and really helped me improve. More, though, by the end of the week I felt I had two new friends.

I loved my visit here at ISE for Spanish classes. Every one was so helpful. Eugenio, the director picked me up on a Sunday and delivered me to the door of Suzana who was my amazing host mom and she never let me speak English. Zoya was our group teacher and was funny and upbeat and never got impatient. She would go over a difficult concept until we all understood. Adriana was my private teacher who was also excellent. She would review with me some of the morning lesson, but we also had conversations about everyday things. I spent. Week in Quito and after some traveling fill have an additional week in Otovolo and Quito. And I can't forget Mario who walked me to the bus and helped me numerous times Tfh this school I guarantee you will love it

I really enjoyed studying spanish at the ISE for 3 weeks. The professors were nice, the clases benefitting for my spanish and the atmosphere at the school very comfortable and safe. I attended a lot of the after-school activities as well, which I liked, as they give you a nice introduction to the city. Staying at Angeles’ homestay was amazing too, the family is so warm and make you feel like home. All in all I had a wonderful time there. I could easily have spend more time here!
