Why with us?

Our Spanish Teachers are very enthusiastic and young persons who really like to teaching Spanish to foreign children, adults, youngs and more. I can tell, they are very polite, happy and kind!

We are an inexpensive School with qualified teachers graduated at the School for Spanish Teachers of Quito. "Instituto IE Internacional del Español"

We are not an International school with international owners, rules and costs.

We do not charge for a registration fee for short programs. (for those of less than 3 months program)

Once in class, our Teachers not only want to teach you the Spanish Language Structure but also our culture and identity when guiding you in town during the school activities.

We, Directors have been formed from school and university to be professionals of the Spanish Language so that we can offer our best to our students.

We offer economic accommodation in our nice host families located nearby the school.

Our School is centrally located in a nice area with no noise, no crowded and no polluted section in Quito.

A word from our Director

 

 

Dear students, Teachers, friends,

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.

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

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.

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!

 
   
   
   

School Diploma

   
  To remember the pleasant moments of your visit to our Spanish School in Quito, we offer you a "Diploma of participation" for your personalized classes in Spanish taken with us. This Diploma will tell you that you were in our School and shared nice moments with the people here. Just ask for it!  
 

 

 
 

Certificate from Ministery of Education in Ecuador

  If you intend to take Spanish classes for a long period, this requires you to register for a course of at least two months of classes because the Ministry of Education requires this time to process an official certification. The course has more conditions than the fast courses offered by our School. Please check further requirements.  
   
     

 

 

 

School Certificate

  Once your Spanish classes are finished, you can receive a certification of the Spanish classes at our Institution with the number of hours received, the time time taken on that and the level of studies achieved.  
 
 
 
   
 

Our School

     
  Cristóbal Colón Spanish Language School was founded on April 4, 1997 by the Notaria 17ª in Quito and is dedicated to teaching Spanish as a foreign language. The school has been authorized to operate as an educational establishment by Ecuador’s Ministry of Education since 1996, Nª 029-SD-DINEPP.
