Vida Verde Spanish School

Quito Spanish Schools, Vida Verde Spanish SchoolWe are a Spanish language school in Quito, Ecuador offering intensive Spanish language instruction and Spanish immersion programs. Our spanish school is located in a spacious, yet cozy, colonial house near the Mariscal tourist district of Quito. While studying with us, you'll not only receive quality Spanish instruction, you'll also have the opportunity to live with an Ecuadorian family, learn about the various Ecuadorian cultures through innovative lesson plans and embark on excursions that emphasize the richness of the diverse Ecuadorian environment and its people.

While participating in our language program, you'll have the chance to visit one of South America's largest and most famous open markets, learn how to cook classic Ecuadorian dishes, dance the meringue and learn to salsa. You may also choose to combine studying Spanish with ecotourism by participating in our Study on the Coast or Study in the Jungle programs. Whatever you choose to do, while studying Spanish at the Vida Verde Spanish Center you'll not only be learning Spanish, you'll be living it!

Spanish Programs

Our Spanish program is divided into 3 levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. No previous knowledge of Spanish is necessary to study at the Basic level. Upon enrollment, students with some previous Spanish knowledge are given a placement exam (both written and oral) to determine at what level they should begin classes and also to identify areas of weakness. The professor and student then work together to design a customized study plan. Most all of our students who start at the basic level can communicate with basic fluency after 5-6 weeks (100-120 class hours), though you have to do your homework!

Learning One to One: It’s no secret that the best and quickest way to learn Spanish is through intensive, one-to-one individual instruction. This is the primary teaching method used here at the Vida Verde Spanish Center. One-to-one instruction allows students to learn at their own pace and enables teachers to custom-design study programs to best meet the needs of their students. By using this method, teachers can provide immediate feedback, minimizing the formation of bad habits.

Small Group Lessons: We offer small-group instruction for groups of 2 to 4 students. To form a group, it is necessary that the students are at relatively the same level. Students wishing to form a group may be required to take our placement exam so that we may determine the exact experience level of each student. For the group program, the same teaching method and content is used, just in a group setting. The group program is suited for students desiring increased interaction, a slightly slower learning pace, and/or a more economical means of study.

Rotation Method: In order to expose students to slightly different teaching styles, accents, dialects, and help them to recognize the variations of spoken Spanish, we have designed our program so that students generally study with a different teacher each week. This rotation method also allows students the opportunity to build relationships with more of the staff here at the Vida Verde Spanish Center.

Excursions: Ecuador and the city of Quito provide a boundless outdoor classroom in which to study and practice Spanish. This has inspired us to develop a program in which students have the option of spending a day out in Quito accompanied by their professor. We find that the students who participate in this program enjoy the opportunity to study Spanish outside the confines of the school, as well as appreciate the chance to get to know the city. Some of the most common excursions enjoyed by our students include visiting a lively outdoor market, taking in a museum, seeing a Latin American film and/or marveling at the numerous churches of Quito.

Homestay Program: Our school has a relationship with a number of Ecuadorian families who are interested in hosting international students for a reasonable price. If you wish, we can arrange for you to stay with one of these Ecuadorian families in a residential area close to the school. We call this our "homestay" program because when you participate in this program, you are not only renting a room in somebody's house, you are being welcomed into their home as if you were a member of their family. The homestay gives you the opportunity for additional practice speaking Spanish outside of the classroom, as well as the opportunity to experience some of the cultural aspects of Ecuadorian life, such as food, family life, and holidays. We prefer to place only one student per family because when students live together we have found that the temptation to speak their native language -instead of Spanish- is too great. However, if it is important to you to live with other students or with a traveling companion, arrangements can be made to accommodate your needs.
