Learn Spanish in Cuenca

Cuenca is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Ecuador. Its surrounding region are rich in nature, history and offers a colonial atmosphere that has survived thanks to years of almost complete isolation.

The city is full of fascinating contrasts: home to two universities, museums and art galleries stand alongside traditional indigenous markets rarely visited by foreigners.

CESA Plus Points:

  • Ideal for all abilities and ages, from 18 yrs +, wanting to learn Spanish for personal interest or before travelling in Latin America
  • Centrally located in Cuenca, with good facilities and excellent teachers
  • Friendliness of the local Ecuadorian people
  • Additional programmes are a real draw, particularly the Arts or Volunteering options

I thought the lessons were great.  The teachers interacted really well with us Spanish language students, everyone turned up on time for class and the lessons were very well structured.
I felt comfortable in the school as well – both the Spanish school staff and the Spanish teachers were approachable and ready to answer any questions that arise, from suggesting something to do, through to a tricky grammar question that I hadn’t quite mastered.
