If you would like to have complete information of the whole program with each one of the units we can send you a PDF attachment by email.
We believe that the best way to learn a language is through a personalized lesson where you have all the support and constant attention of your teacher. The one on one method is designed to improve the student´s confidence in the language and will address the student´s individual needs and skills he/she particularly needs.
Even though the teacher follows the school program the content can be negotiated between the student and teacher depending on the student´s needs. This gives students an opportunity to work on areas of particular interest or concern.
One of the benefits of this method is to have the opportunity for practical lessons with direct interaction with the teacher who corrects directly your mistakes or pronunciation ,and gives immediate feedback.
We offer One –to- One courses for all kind of levels! You will have written and oral testing on the first day if you have previous knowledge of Spanish!
If you prefer to share your lesson with other students we also offer you that possibility. We provide group lessons using materials and methods especially designed for groups.
Experience of one of our students.
A former student became an Spanish Teacher in the United States.
Video about the School: “Hi, my name is Sofia. I am the director of the Terracentro Spanish School. I would like to invite you to come to Ecuador to learn Spanish and to travel like many people do.
First because the of clear accent of the ecuadorian people. The accent is very easy to understand for foreign people.
Second: because Ecuador is a very beautiful country and it is very easy to travel within the country: we have the Galapagos Islands, the Highlands, the Coast and the Amazon Rainforest.
So we invite to all tourist, volunteers and professionals to come to Ecuador to learn Spanish.”
