I learnt alot in just a week and really got a grip of the language in this short space of time, so much so that even the host family I was staying with noticed. Other teachers I had just want to fill the time and they gave me much writing to do... More

The school is amazing. The hands on skills are superb. It's a very comfortable environment. It was like all the sudden we are not doing book work we were just talking Spanish in conversation like you would your friend. Amazing experience.

My husband and I planned on coming to Manta specifically to learn more Spanish at this school. We had Jenny as our teacher, who is patient kind and hilarious. It was just my husband and I in the class, but it was perfect. We had classes each day and went to a home stay each night. Staying with Jorge's family... More

We visited Surpacifico school as part of a travelling classroom programme. We actually booked the programme through Montañita Spanish School but both schools are run by the same person (Manuel) and it's all very well coordinated. Manuel and Rosi were so welcoming and friendly. We spent lots of time relaxing by their pool after classes. The classes were great, we... More
