Quito ist eine spannende Stadt mit sehr freundlichen und offenen Menschen.Die Lehrer an der Schule Don Quijote waren überaus herzlich und motiviert. Die ganze Zeit über hat man sich gefühlt wie in einer kleinen Familie. Sehr angenehm und motivierend jeden Tag aufs neue die grauen Zellen zu bemühen.Natürlich ist der allgemeine Lebensstandard in Ecuador nicht so hoch wie in Mitteleuropa. Im Vergleich zu anderen Ländern/Städten dieses Kontinentes befindet sich die Stadt jedoch im oberen Bereich Die Infrastruktur wie auch technische Möglichkeiten sind etwas einfacher, jedoch wird dies durch das Personal mehr als kompensiert. Alle waren sehr motiviert und überaus herzlich, somit hatte ich auch nie das Gefühl etwas zu vermissen. September und Oktober befinden sich offensichtlich in der Nebensaison, daher waren die Gruppen äußerst klein. Der Unterricht in der kleinen „Gruppe“ dafür war umso intensiver und effektiver Sehr freundliche und rücksichtsvolle Familie. Ausreichend großes Zimmer mit Schreibtisch und separatem Bad.Die Gastfamilie war sehr hilfreich und hatte bei Nachfragen auch immer Rat. Es wurde alles regelmäßig sauber gemacht, auch Wäsche wurde für mich gewaschen.Das Essen war authentisch und reichhaltig. Es gab jeden Tag frische Säfte. Leider sind die Mahlzeiten etwas reislastig, was für das Land aber durchaus normal ist Ausflüge nach dem Unterricht wurden von Lehrer begleitet, dir auch gerne auf individuelle Wünsche eingegangen sind und immer sehr gut informiert waren.Die Wochenendausflüge werden von einem Tourunternehmen durchgeführt, welches wie die meisten in Quito sehr gut organisiert ist. Somit war alles äußerst zufriedenstellend

L'Ecuador è un paese stupendo e Quito una città fantastica, da dove si possono intraprendere parecchi viaggi nelle vicinanze o anche più lontano. Lo consiglierei a tutti! La scuola è piccola, ma questo porta il vantaggio che le lezioni sono (semi)-private, il che è ottimo per l'apprendimento. Inoltre il direttore e gli insegnanti sono simpaticissimi. L'atmosfera nella scuola è quindi ottima. La famiglia era molto disponibile, però avevo contatto solo durante i pasti. Mi sarebbe piaciuto, soprattutto durante la prima settimana, che magari si fossero interessati di più a farmi conoscere la città. Altrimenti sono stata molto bene. C'erano sempre attività nel pomeriggio, per chi era interessato. Inoltre nel weekend venivano proposte un paio di escursioni. Altrimenti il direttore era sempre molto disponibile a dare informazioni.

« In classe eravamo sempre massimo due allievi, il che ha aiutato tantissimo per l'apprendimento. »
Top tips
« Nelle vicinanze di Quito, andare assoultamente a: Cotopaxi, Mindo, Mitad del Mundo, Centro Historico, Laguna Quilotoa. Se si ha tempo di restare di più, viaggi all'Oriente, alle Galapagos, alla Costa, e molte altre opzioni sono sicuramente destinazioni stupende. »

« Oui j'ai fait des progrès en espagnol, avant de voyager je ne parlais pas du tout l'espagnol. Maintenant je peux avoir une discussion et je comprend le 90% ! J'ai aussi pris de l'assurance et de l'autonomie car vivre dans un appartement seule fait apprendre beaucoup de choses. »
School highlights
« La rencontre avec d'autres cultures, locales mais aussi des pays des étudiants à l'école! J'ai bien aimé le fait que l'école soit petite, cela fait une ambiance familiale et tout le monde parle avec tout le monde. »

Don Quijote, Quito
Duration: 12 weeks

Ecuador is a fascinating country and probably the most multifaceted country in Latin America. It has virtually everything and spreads from the Amazon rainforest over the Andes to the Pacific coast. The school is well located, the teachers are professional and friendly and the classes are taught in small groups, which is a great opportunity to make significant progress from the first weeks onwards. I met amazing people, whether students from all over the world or Ecuadorians whose culture and mentality I like. My trip to Ecuador was a unique experience and I recommend it to everyone.

Host family
Living with a host family during your stay in Quito is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the Ecuadorian culture whilst having the chance to practise your Spanish daily outside of class in informal and authentic contexts. Our partner school carefully selects local host families and they generally live max. 15 minutes away from the school. You will stay in a single room and have the choice between having half board or full board provided.

Shared apartment
Our partner school also proposes accommodation in a shared apartment, around 15 minutes' walking distance away from the language school building. Staying in a single room, you will share the common facilities with your flatmates, including a large equipped kitchen, a large living room, a terrace and 2 bathrooms. This option represents a very good opportunity to meet international students and to share the experience of a language study stay in Ecuador with them.
Please note: The doors to the rooms in the apartment cannot be locked (only the main entrance to the apartment can be locked).

The school offers a wide choice of social and cultural activities. A visit to Quito will give you the opportunity to discover the Ecuadorian culture, through the sensuality and rhythm of the dances, the rich cuisine or the debates and conferences on the Latin-American world. You can also go to Otavalo on the Pan-American, which is famous for its market; ride horses in Baños, in the Valley of the Andes; or even take yourself to the middle of the world, with the equator only 22 km north of Quito! Not to mention the well-conserved remains of pre-Columbian civilisations, the national park of Cotopaxi or the thermal spas of Papallacta.
