Good Points
I can't say enough good about this school. I brought a group of 10 people from the United States and we did a week long class. The mornings were spent in classroom exercises, and the afternoons were spent on walking tours of Quito and a trip to Otovalo. Obviously one week does not make a person into a speaker of Spanish, but it was amazing what we did learn in those few days.

Equally impressive was the hospitality and friendship of the teachers and directors of the school. We have developed close friendships that have endured for years. I had an occasion to return to Quito on unrelated business, and was welcomed into the home of the directors as if I were long-lost family! I stayed with them three days while I did my business there, and I literally love them like family.

The cost of the schooling was very affordable and we definitely got our money's worth! I can't recommend them enough.

Also, Quito itself is one of the most wonderful places I have ever visited (and I have traveled the world). Always a nice temperature, surrounded by beautiful mountains, gorgeous architecture.

Bad Points
There wasn't a single bad point - except that I wish I could spend a month in class instead of a week, a thing they would quickly accomodate if I could arrange the time.
