The individual lessons are incredible. Studied here for a week and learnt so much. Couldn't have been better. The after school activities are great fun too. Dance lessons, futbal games, cooking lessons and much more. Thank you very much!

Hola! Thank you for your interest to study at Simon Bolivar Spanish School in Quito- Ecuador. Of course we can help you with Individual or Group lessons. Please let me know which week are you interest to come? Individual... More
I am possibly interested in studying for 6 to 7 weeks in Ecuador. How would I go about signing up for Quito, Cuenca and the coast to study. Would I need to take a bus from Quito to Cuenca to the coast and are you able to arrange that La Selva lodge sounded great as well, do they have shorter hikes or could I do something else in place of the 3-4 hour hikes. Also do you have host families that are free of dogs and cats, due to my allergies? I did study Spanish in Argentina for 6 weeks a couple of years ago. I was wondering if the 1 week language and culture program would still be beneficial for me if I signed up for that. Also was wondering about the weather and if there is a better time of the year to study for nicer weather. Thanks so much. Also I appreciated reading through all of the comments from other students. What great comments and testimonies about your school. I first heard about SB from an expat who was living in Cuenca. Sincerely, Jan Baragar
