The best way to learn a language is to live, eat and breathe it. There is no better way to learn a language than by living and mixing with native-speakers. You'll speak the language when you're out shopping, having a beer with new friends, reading the local newspapers or watching television. Your language skills will improve in leaps and bounds!
The courses range from Beginners through to Advanced. If you'd like to learn a language we haven't listed, please contact us because we can probably arrange it for you!

The best thing about my placement early on was how easy it was to meet other people with similar interests to me. This was due to the fact that we were all studying in the same Spanish school and the majority of people were staying next door in the volunteer house.
Overall I had an incredible nine weeks in Ecuador ... I am really pleased with the improvement in my Spanish. The teachers at the Spanish School were great and I really benefitted from being surrounded with Spanish speakers who were reluctant to speak English. Thanks for all your help!
