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.

Learn Spanish in Otavalo

Learn Spanish in OtavaloThe Spanish School in Otavalo is located in the heart of Otavalo, just a minute's walk from Otavalo's famous craft market in the Plaza de Ponchos.

Otavalo, a small indigenous town of the north Andean countryside, is located just two hours north of Quito. It has been made famous by the incredible success of its indigenous population selling artisan crafts and quality textiles in the international arena. This is a great spot to practice Spanish and become more acquainted with indigenous populations and their incredible history.

Organic Farm Program

Learn Spanish in OtavaloBased at a beautiful and peaceful 20-hectare organic farming hacienda, located in the north west of the Province of Pichincha, it is a perfect backdrop for learning Spanish in a comfortable, healthy and relaxed atmosphere.

Students take Spanish classes in the afternoon, following a morning of optional educational volunteer work around the hacienda. Daily activities include working with traditional Andean tools in the fields, applying modern techniques of organic agriculture in our extensive vegetable gardens, or perhaps working with the animals - an early rise to milk the cows!

*NEW* to the farm are Kundalini yoga classes. Now you can integrate yoga and meditation into your stay here.
