Studying Spanish in Ecuador is the perfect opportunity to learn about Ecuador life and culture while studying in the largest Spanish-speaking country in South America. The language skills you will gain should set you on the path for future success, wherever and whatever that may be.
Ecuador, the smallest country of the Andes, lies in the north west of South America, on the Equator. Despite its relatively small size (Ecuador is about half the size of France) it is arguably the most geographically diverse country of the world. Ecuador has a large tropical rainforest, snow-capped mountains of the Andes and extensive coastlines at the Pacific.
Just a 1-hour flight to the West of the mainland lies the most beautiful group of islands: the Galapagos Islands, an untouched natural paradise. Visitors can here swim with dolphins and sea lions or admire giant turtles at the beach.
Ecuadorians speak a very clear and easy-to-understand Spanish, which is especially helpful for students with little prior knowledge of the language. In addition, the friendly and welcoming nature of the people means that you will have ample opportunity to practice and improve your Spanish in conversation. Ecuador has been considered to be the safest country in South America with a crime rate lower than that of the US.
International Partners for Study Abroad offer Spanish learning programs in Ecuador at Spanish language schools for college and high school students, executives and professionals, teachers of Spanish and interested adult learners.
