Ailola Quito/instituto Superior de Espanol is a great choice to improve your Spanish and learn about Ecuadoran culture. I took three weeks of group and private lessons in December 2021. All of my coursework was conducted in Spanish and the instructors focused on conversation, grammar, and reading comprehension. In addition to studying in a classroom, my private lessons included local cultural tours of the historic center of Quito. I stayed with a local Ecuadoran family which was arranged by the school. This enhanced my experience because it allowed me to speak Spanish at home with the family while having authentic Ecuadoran cuisine. If you are considering studying Spanish, I would recommend that you contact the school director Eugenio. He and his staff will ensure that you have an excellent experience while in Ecuador.

In the 3 weeks I spent in Ailola in Quito (2 of them in group class and 1 individual) I learned way more than I thought was possible. My very basic Spanish got a lot better so that I was able to confidently hold a conversation. The teachers and employees are all very friendly and always there to help. Eugenio even picks you up from the airport and takes you to cool places after classes. I would definitely choose Ailola again.

My family traveled through the Galapagos with Ailola Quito and spent one week in their Quito school studying Spanish. The 2-week travel trip was amazing! We loved spending time with Paul, Paola, Vanessa & Martina. We really enjoyed getting to know the other student in our group. We had a great experience! We also really enjoyed Quito. Eugenio, Paul & Paola took us around the city. Eugenio even took us to the hot springs in Papallata and the Otavalo Market. We hope to be able to return! Don't hesitate to register for a language study course or traveling program with Ailola Quito. You'll love it!

I was there for two intense weeks of Spanish. I arrived with basics and left with solid knowledge about the language. I would 200% recommend this school to anyone wanting to study Spanish, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advance, or whether you are travelling solo, in family, between friends or in a couple. Teachers are extremely friendly. Mine was Tito, a really great teacher who’s going to make you feel confident about speaking (not easy)! Eugenio, the school director, has also been very helpful in preparing this trip, but also while in Quito. He showed us the whole city, and even drove to Papallacta after school with his car! Anyways, amazing experience!

I studied Spanish for ten weeks at Ailola in Quito and I’m really happy with the results.

The instruction was fantastic. They explained things to me in a clear, structured and organized manner. The exercises were perfect for illustrating the concept. My instructor knew the material thoroughly and knew how to explain it to a learner. Afterwards, I felt that I finally had a good understanding of so many things that I only kind of vaguely understood before.

I learned a lot. The topics taught to me were always relevant to my level. On top of that the other students were great and I enjoyed spending time with everyone at the school. The school director was super friendly and made sure that I got to see the local tourist attractions.

So, yeah, I’m really pleased with the experience. I will study there again the next time I’m in Ecuador.

My wife and I studied at Ailola Quito for 6 weeks this past summer and it was an amazing experience. All of the teachers and administrators are wonderful people and we really enjoyed not only learning from them but also getting to know them. Eugenio is super committed as the Director and owner of the school and we really enjoyed learning from Robertito and Paola! Highly recommended

I spent almost 3 months at the Ailola Quito Spanish School and was able to sustainably improve my Spanish skills. I am still enthusiastic about the school, the teachers and the other students from different countries. The lessons and the teaching material are very professional and the breaks offer space to practice what you have learned with the other students. The atmosphere was always great and very relaxed. I can recommend a Spanish course at this school to everyone and would always choose Ailola Quito again!

The director, Eugenio Cordova, was responsive too all questions as we were making a decision. Once we had decided to select Ailola Quito, he continued to respond to all our needs to include hotel suggestions. My wife and I each had our own instructors; capable, patient and motivated us to focus and participate. Our 2 week session was split one week in Quito and 1 week in Otavalo, for us the correct decision. The other students were international and enjoyable company. For 20 hours per week of instruction and a few afternoon events, it was of exceptional value

My husband and I choose to have our honeymoon in Ecuador! We are lucky enough to have a whole month in this beautiful country. But, when we got here we realized how abysmal our Spanish was. So, we decided to stay a few extra days in Quito and signed up for a week of Spanish classes! We are so happy we did. We really got a good base that has helped us immensely during our trip.

Our instructor Adriana was so good. She is hilarious and patient, a winning combination. We had so much fun in her class, something that is a rare thing to say about any schooling experience.

In addition to the classes, Eugenio drove us one afternoon to Papallacta and took us on a gorgeous hike followed by the most beautiful hot spring. This excursion would have been a fortune through a tour operator and we might not have even thought of doing it. It has been on of the highlights of our trip.

The school was so helpful with everything. They helped us get our SIM cards when we arrived and answers any questions we had about how to get to places or what to do when we weren’t in the classroom. Everyone made us feel super comfortable.

¡Muchas gracias Adriana, nos enseñaste mucho y nos divertimos mucho!
