We normally hold classes for 4 hours a day. It is possible to take more than 4 hours, making class in the mornings and afternoons. Students have the option of individual, group, or a combination of individual and group classes. We recommend individual classes for beginners.

Learn Spanish in Otavalo


Learn Spanish in OtavaloThe Spanish School in Otavalo is located in the heart of Otavalo, just a minute's walk from Otavalo's famous craft market in the Plaza de Ponchos.

Otavalo, a small indigenous town of the north Andean countryside, is located just two hours north of Quito. It has been made famous by the incredible success of its indigenous population selling artisan crafts and quality textiles in the international arena. This is a great spot to practice Spanish and become more acquainted with indigenous populations and their incredible history.
