Thank you for making me feel that I was more than just a language student.

I spent one month in ECELA Viña del Mar and could not have been more pleased with my progress in Spanish, and happy with my experience in general. Both the excellent staff and instructors were professional, kind, and helpful.

The feeling they were able to convey was that they not only wanted to help with the advancement of the language, but that students felt comfortable and confident navigating a new city, language and culture.

Thank you again for this experience. Thank you for making me feel that I was more than just a language student.

I’m really glad I chose to study in Vina becuase its close to the beach and the small classes are perfect for making close friends.

I truly enjoyed my experience at ECELA in Vina Del Mar. In only three weeks, my spanish improved more than I ever expected. The professors are very kind, accommodating, professional, and fun and the classes are informative and interactive.

They even offer extracyrriculars like empanada cooking classes and salsa dancing instruction. I’m really glad I chose to study in Vina becuase its close to the beach and the small classes are perfect for making close friends.

I have to thank Ecela for the unique experience I had

My experience as a volunteer with Ecela Viña was amazing. I love all animals, so there was nothing better for me than volunteering during my stay at Ecela Viña Del Mar. Helping the dogs at PAEC, rebuilding their kennel, feeding them, playing with them, grooming them, and most of all giving them love and care was more than just a job, it was an experience that helped me grow in many ways.

I have to thank Ecela for the unique experience I had, and also I’d like to thank Ernesto who helped me and taught me so much during this month of volunteering. Thank you so much for everything.
