A Word From Our Director

 

Dear students, Teachers (June 2017)

I’m the proud founder and director of the Cristóbal Colón Spanish School. I’m very pleased with the progress we’ve made since our opening in 1997, a progress that would never have been possible without the students that we have received from all over the world and also all the teachers & other staff that have worked here.

Over the years, our School has become one of the most popular Spanish schools in Quito, not only because of the quality of our teaching & teachers but also because of the quality of our relationship with our students & our great level of flexibility.

I’m looking forward to welcoming our future students and volunteers as well as future improvements to our school.

My academic achievements (Degree in Castilian Literature; PhD in Educational Research – Central University of Ecuador), my personal and professional experience in the field of education and my total dedication to this field have enabled me to contribute meaningfully to the improvement of the teaching of Spanish language as a foreign language in Latin America. I've applied innovative methodology and created a body teaching and study material consistent with our experience, culture and national image. I authored the textbook Sistema IE “System of teaching and learning Spanish as a foreign language” that is used in schools across Ecuador and Latin America. It reflects my innovative teaching approach as well as the influence of my 15 years of teaching experience in various countries in Latin America and Europe. Books published

Furthermore, to ensure the quality of our teaching and training of our teachers, our school is closely linked to the Instituto IE, which is a reference in Ecuador for the training of teachers of Spanish as a foreign language. All of our teachers have undergone training at the Instituto in order to obtain the Spanish foreign language teaching diploma. Every month, as facilitator at the Instituto IE, I lead a professional development session with the teachers of Cristóbal Colón to ensure that we maintain the highest standards at the school.


I would like to welcome all our new students and volunteers to our school and invite them to help us make our school better. Thank you for browsing our website and our Facebook page to learn more about us and please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions that you might have.

 

Bienvenidos a nuestra familia en Ecuador!
