Learn Spanish and Surf in Montanita Ecuador!

Escape to Ecuador provides small mini-group Spanish. We pride ourselves on the quality of these courses. There are 4 lessons per day, 5 days per week. With 6 different ability groups you will be with others also keen to learn at the same level. By having others in your class it is an excellent way to stay motivated, practice what you are learning and to meet other students. Classes consist of 2 hours of largely Grammar based learning. We still try to make it fun! Then there are 2 hours of more conversational or activity based Spanish, to put into practice what you have learned. We have found this approach to be extremely effective. In the conversation/practical classes group members frequently go on trips around town, practice real world situations and even have cooking classes sometimes!
