Last year, I stayed at Atahualpa Spanish School for two weeks and I had an awesome time there! :-)
During the first week, I lived with Martha and Vicente and we had a lot of nice talks and I felt very welcome in their house. I took Spanish classes with Lusmila in the morning and in the afternoons we went for Quito Sightseeing ("Quito Cultural"). I really enjoyed this mix of Spanish classes and sightseeing tours where I learned a lot about the Ecuatorian culture and the city of Quity. Starting from the second week, I stayed at a volunteering project and still could take classes with Lusmila in the morning. This was really convenient as she came to the project and we did the classes there.
When I arrived in Quito, I didn't speak a word of Spanish but after the two weeks with Martha, Vicente and Lusmila, I was able to understand and take part in daily conversations, which was a great success :-)
Except from the classes and accomodation I booked, Martha, Vicente and Lusmila did a lot more for their students: we went for a concert, had dinner in the old town of Quito and got invited for a village celebration with Lusmila.
All in all, I can highly recommend Atahualpa Spanish School and I'm thankful for this unforgettable time in Ecuador! :-)
