Ecuador Basic Spanish Program
To enhance the experience of overseas interns and volunteers abroad in Ecuador, the International Volunteer Travel offers a special one two week program for beginners, called the Ecuador Basic Spanish Program. This program is offered in collaboration with our partner Ecuador Spanish language school. Program participants who sign up for this program, take classes for 3 to 4 hours in the mornings and volunteer or intern in the afternoon.
The Ecuador Basic Spanish Program is designed with the purpose of providing students a richer experience and understanding of the cultural and traditions of Ecuador, and also, to develop their language skills for everyday travel situations. The Spanish language taught covers useful language for conversation at restaurant, bank, tourist office, supermarket, post office, airport, etc.
The Ecuador Basic Spanish Program is only available to Ecuador overseas interns and international volunteers with little or no prior knowledge of Spanish. This Ecuador program is designed for students who do not have enough time to learn the language in a more complete form, but who need the language to effectively participate in our Ecuador volunteer and internship abroad programs. Ecuador volunteers and interns may take the classes or choose not to. You can also choose to take one week or two weeks.
Local Host Families
In addition to taking Spanish classes, overseas interns and International volunteers in Ecuador have ample time to practice the language and learn the culture by living with an Ecuadorian host family.
A sample schedule of the one week version of the Ecuador Basic Spanish Program is as follows:
Arrival and pickup from the Quito Mariscal Sucre International Airport
in Quito, Ecuador. Transfer to host family home, and rest.
Note: The Ecuador Basic Spanish Program incorporates activities designed for overseas interns and volunteers abroad to experience the culture and lifestyles of Ecuador, through visits to indigenous villages, churches, markets, etc, it is possible to gain a more well rounded idea of the political, social and economic reality of Ecuador.
Note: The Ecuador Basic Spanish Program is not offered alone. Only participants who sign up for one other program such as the Ecuador volunteer program; the Ecuador internship program; or the Ecuador Adventure program can participate on the Ecuador Basic Spanish Program.
