What we like about the school

  • Small class sizes

Instituto Superior de Español

The language school Instituto Superior de Español was founded in Macas, Ecuador in 2004. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to Learn Spanish in a unique place. It is specially prepared for nature lovers and people who really need to take some time away from the busy city. It is algo great if you are curious and respectful of the way people around the globe think and live. The Shuar community lives according to their own ancestral believes, not according to what you can daily see in the world. Their respect for nature guides their actions and life. Here, by the hand of your Spanish teacher you will be able to understand this and for sure you will create amazing memories as well as develop your language skills.

The school address is: Shuar, - Macas, Ecuador

Comments about courses:Please note, this program takes place in an authentic Shuar Indigenous community. It is very different than staying at a lodge because here you will really live, learn and understand their way of living as well as the synchronism they have with nature, you will depend on what nature produces and there will not be much access to technology gadgets. Facilities are shared and food will be prepared from what nature produces. Here, of course as a part of the ecosystem bugs are common to see.
