What Students Think...

I had a great time at the school and learnt a lot - more than I expected. I will recommend the school to all people that ask me about opportunities to learn Spanish in South America.

Instituto Superior de Español also helps students to organize some trips to different places as the Galapagos Islands for less prices than you can pay directly to tourist agencies in Quito or abroad. The agreement from Instituto Superior de Español and boat trips is that never one student will pay more than the less price one passenger will have in the same boat trip.
