The Spanish School for the Elderly offers an interesting Spanish Program that helps our senior students enjoy their time with other seniors in a comfortable and enjoyable environment.
They have the opportunity to learn Spanish, to make excursions in and out of the city in small groups or if they prefer they can go on excursion alone with their teacher.
This program is designed for our students to learn Spanish and practice in a relaxed and easy way, with our highly experienced professional teachers.
Students receive individual Spanish lessons at school and out of school visiting tourist and cultural attractions in and out of the city.
The learning is based on a combination of Spanish academic classes and relaxed and educational excursions where students have the opportunity to practice what they learn in class, and at the same time the student gets to know the culture.
To fulfill our objectives we have selected excursions to places of tourist and cultural interest, so that the students have a pleasant and useful time with their teacher during their time in our School.
Magazines and international organizations indicate that Ecuador ranks first among the best destinations for retirees and ranks first among the best destinations in the world for its good weather.
The eternal spring of Ecuador's climate throughout the year makes us an unsurpassed destination in the world; Temperatures that in the Andes do not surpass 24 degrees centigrade and minimum less than 7 degrees, in the coast between 34 and 38 degrees give us beaches with hot waters throughout the year.
Many Seniors from the northern countries, especially during the winter season, visit our Country to enjoy the climate and the natural beauty of our cities, Quito Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Andes, the Coast, the exotic Amazon Rainforest and its Place Galapagos.
International Living project editor Dan Prescher says Ecuador qualifies as having an ideal climate: "The combination of altitude and the intensity of the sun is, in my opinion, the ideal climate." Prescher says you can enjoy this ideal climate in the mountains, towns and cities like Cuenca, Otavalo, Quito and Vilcabamba.

The Senior program is very flexible, our students receive 70 hours of classes for two weeks: four hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon, Monday through Friday; However, the student may begin the course on any day of the week.
The 70 hours of classes are divided as follows: three hours of individual Spanish academic classes at the school and four hours of practice during trips and excursions with their teacher; However, the system is flexible so if a student wants to take a larger number of individual lessons in school he can do.
Another of our offers for seniors are our volunteer programs, where older people share their knowledge and skills in Quito or rural and urban communities.
It should be noted that voluntary work is done with the poorest sectors of the population. If you want to take advantage of the best years of your life sharing your experiences and serving those in need, we invite you to join our extended family of volunteers.
For our Seniors we offer accommodation in homes of Ecuadorian families with ample experience. Families are carefully selected to make our students feel comfortable in a clean and safe environment.
Living with an Ecuadorian family helps you learn more about our culture, practice and learn Spanish more quickly and naturally.
The price of lodging per night is $ 20, and includes a private room, WIFI service, breakfast, and dinner. The family can also offer laundry service for a small additional charge.
