    I was doing a round trip of south america, and started with a month of Spanish at ISE. I was a complete beginner at the start, and after 4 weeks (80 hours of spanish) I was able to have a polite conversation with taxidrivers. It made the rest of my trip in south america alot easier than i would have been without the classes!

    Very competent teachers!

    The school even helped plan weekend trips to Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, Mindo and Otovalo among others. It was easy planing, and always some student from school to go with.

    My husband and I spent 4 weeks studying Spanish st Ailola Quito. We took both private and group classes, my husband was a complete beginner and I had been studying Spanish for a few years. In both the group classes and the private classes the instruction was at a good pace and very through, the private classes were highly personalization. Both our teachers were exceptional. The classes were lively and very focused on conversation. I had a few years of studying Spanish, and Roberto, my instructor, identified the specific areas that I needed improvement with grammar and pronunciation and tailored the curriculum to fit my needs. My husband’s instructor, Adrianna did an excellent job relating the class material to daily life in Ecuador, so the classes very about not only learning Spanish, but learning about life in Ecuador and Ecuadorian culture. The school helped to organize tours, and when circumstances prevented our taking a planned tour, they worked with the operators to get an refund. They recommended and reserved, Mindo Coffee Lodge and Spa for a visit to Mindo, the hotel was lovely. The Airbnb they recommended for our stay, Old Towne Quito Suites, was also wonderful. I highly recommend this experience in Quito

    I completed two weeks of private instruction at Instituto Superior prior to starting a new job in the USA where Spanish competency is required. The Directors designed a program to fit my needs, including building in several hours of instruction (conversation and vocabulary-building) specific to my work as an attorney . In just two weeks I was able to advance a full level from B1 to C1 thanks to the amazing highly experienced teachers at ISE. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for top-quality instruction from people who are trained to teach Spanish to non-native speakers. I just wish I could have stayed another week or two!

    My teacher was willing to learn about the student and use the knowledge of the student to teach in the way that supports the students better.
    The price is a lot better than in Colombia and México city. The private lesson was even cheaper than the big group lessons in other places. And we improved very fast with the teacher’s personalized lessons.
    The school is caring and responsible. Highly recommended!

    A welcoming school with a high quality courses. I have attended courses for 2 weeks at ISE in Quito and I really enjoyed it. The teachers are supportive, friendly and available for any questions. The material provided by the school is really well done. Also the teachers dedicate time for discussions which enable me to practice my Spanish and learn more about Ecuador. Really a good choice to learn or improve your Spanish.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    It was a lot of fun and we will never forget the many unique moments we had on this trip. Considering that COVID affected our original travel plans for this year. We had 4 days around Quito and Alex our guide showed us everywhere. Thank you and we look forward to hire you again next time.
