The Quito School

ISE_QuitoThe Instituto Superior de Español in Quito is our main location, founded in 1988 by our Director, Eugenio Codova. We are proud that all our teachers have university degrees in Education. This guarantees our foreign students a high quality of teaching.

We normally hold classes for 4 hours a day. It is possible to take more than 4 hours, making class in the mornings and afternoons.  Students have the option of individual, group, or a combination of individual and group classes. We recommend individual classes for beginners.


Quito is located at a height of 2850 meters in the Province of Pichincha, 20 kilometers south of the Equator. In Quito, the population is approximately 1.7 million people, dispersed over 290 square kilometers. It is surrounded by 14 volcanoes, some of them still active. The temperatures in Quito, the is between 18 and 26 degrees Celsius, every day, all year. In the mornings and evenings the temperature can be chilly.

The Instituto Superior de Español is located between the New Town Mariscal Center and the Old Town Colonial Historical Center. Both areas are within walking distance from our school.

In Quito, the capital of Ecuador, you will have the opportunity to visit many interesting and beautiful sights. Explore the city with our school or on your own, we will point you in the right direction.

We offer a weekly cooking party, morning or afternoon trips, and weekend excursions. Every Wednesday we organize a  trip to a sight in or close to Quito. This may be the TelefériQo, the “Mitad del Mundo”, Old Town Colonial Historical Center, the Panecillo, the botanical garden, or to a museum.  On Thursdays we have a cooking party at the school so our students can try some typical Ecuadorian dishes. We also organize weekend trips from one to three days. Climb or go mountain biking on Cotopaxi, visit the cloud forest in Mindo, shop at the famous Otavalo market, or venture to Atacames on the coast. Your time with us will be unforgettable!
