The homestays are an additional aspect that shouldn’t be missed. It’s a great way to integrate immediately into the language and culture.

I’ve been to four of ECELA’s schools, and as a Spanish teacher I applaud their efforts in creating an enjoyable atmosphere for learning Spanish at all levels from beginner to advanced.

ECELA’s schools are more than just language schools, they are learning communities that support the sometimes challenging process of learning another language. The teachers and support staff are the key to the success.

The schools in Peru have been a very special experience for me. Through my experiences in Cusco and Lima, they have introduced me to a country that I’m sure I will return to.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience in Lima. It exceeded my expectations in all ways. The city is exciting, the views in Miraflores are beautiful and the school was thoroughly enjoyable. I’m so glad I chose to complete my studies at ECELA here in the capital.

The homestays are an additional aspect that shouldn’t be missed. It’s a great way to integrate immediately into the language and culture. I highly recommend ECELA for its excellent program.

We had an excellent time at ECELA Cusco

Hola, amigos! It’s Ina and Mima from Slovakia.  We had an excellent time at ECELA Spanish School in Cusco, Pero.  Before we arrived, Mima and I didn’t speak Spanish, but after two weeks we feel like we know more…We enjoyed the activities with Ygor and the classes with Alexis (Spanish Instructor at the School).

Mima will never forget her first pisco sour (haha) and I’ll never forget the first time I rode a horse!! Thanks for everything!! Besos, Ina and Mima, the Slovak girls.

The city and people were wonderful.

¡Que divertido!
My time here at ECELA in Mendoza flew by. I´ve met some wonderful people and learned a lot about Argentina.
I´ve learned a lot of Spanish and improved my previous skills.
I ‘recommend ECELA in Mendoza to anyone interested in learning from great teachers in a comfortable environment. The city and people were wonderful.

It’s like a big family full of student and staff 🙂

What’s a GREAT time in ECELA Santiago!!! I stayed 10 weeks in the school, and I already miss it. My level increased a lot, more that I expected.

The classes are very interesting, the teachers very friendly and ready to explain again if you didn’t understand We laughed a lot, but always learning, big thanks to my teachers.

During all my stay, I met a lot of people from everywhere, and this was perfect to practice Spanish outside of the class.

I felt so good in this school, it’s like a big family full of student and staff 🙂 You, who read this message, go to ECELA. You will really enjoy, have fun, learn about Chile, Santiago, and of course Spanish.

The quality and caliber of instruction and curriculum is unparalleled.

The quality and caliber of instruction and curriculum is unparalleled. I have been a high school English and ESL teacher for the past eight years in California and I stand in awe of the natural talent, insight and mastery of the ECELA teachers.

I truly believe that teaching a language to a non-native speaker is one of the most challenging callings on earth. My two teachers, Ricardo and Francisco, were unbelievably talented, patient and engaging in their instructional strategies and classroom management. As a teacher myself, I know the challenges of language instruction. I can truly say that in my career as an educator, these two teachers are the two most talented and effective in their classroom practice.

There are people from all over the world, from different cultures, and everything works so well.

When I walked into Ecela the first time, I was impressed by how friendly the people were.  I could participate in all of the activities even without being enrolled.  After a while, they convinced me to take classes, and it was worth it.

What goes on in this school is an unforgettable experience.  There are people from all over the world, from different cultures, and everything works so well.  I thought it was good that we used what we learned in class in the activities during the afternoon and at night.  That way, you learned things much more quickly. Especially those who were new to Ecela.  The school is truly a wonderful thing.

Seriously, I speak Spanish much better than I did three weeks ago.

First of all, thank you so much for everything!

I had a great time during the 3 weeks I spent here: I met a ton of people, went to many interesting restaurants, had a lot of parties (and drank too much!), visited several different places in Buenos Aires, learned to dance tango (I love my teacher Pablo!)…and I think/hope I learned a little Spanish!

Seriously, I speak Spanish much better than I did three weeks ago. Maybe now I speak Spanish better than I speak French…that might be a problem when I return to Geneva!

Buenos Aires is a beautiful city, but it’s also freezing! Just like London!
Thanks to all of my excellent professors! I love Leila…but she’s completely crazy!!
I’m going to miss Buenos Aires and everyone.

Unfortunately, it’s time for me to go, but I hope to come back soon.
I’d especially like to thank Pilar.

Peru is a very beautiful country, with history and important traditions.

Amigos:
Thank you so much for this week. We studied a lot of Spanish grammar. Our conversations with the instructors and the other students helped us a lot.

Peru is a very beautiful country, with history and important traditions. We’re going to keep studying Spanish!! Thanks for everything!!

I liked the school and the city a lot. I recommend it.

As you all should already know, Mendoza is the wine capital of Argentina.  Of course there are really great wines, but there are also many interesting things to do.

Mendoza is close to the famous Aconcagua.  You can practice different sports, eat great foot, meet nice people, and go to bars, as well as other things.  The city is safe and great for walking.

ECELA has really good instructors and a good structure.  I liked the school and the city a lot.  I recommend it.

I will without doubt recommend the school to anyone!

My summer in Cusco was one of my most memorable vacations ever. I enjoyed staying in the beautiful city, getting to know both Peruvians and other international students. The teachers and staff in Ecela were very good and fun at the same time.

I will without doubt recommend the school to anyone! Ecela put me together with a host family who was loving and caring. They helped me improve my spanish by talking with me every night. Going to Ecela in Cusco is really the best way to study Spanish!
