"Intense but very efficient"

Eva Schuerch, opiskelija _ maasta Sveitsi

Because there weren't any other students at the time I did the two weeks Spanish course (off-season), I had the pleasure to have an individual class. The teacher was very friendly and helped me to improve my speaking skills. Because one day there was an holiday, I could just take an hour more the other days of the week. The class was very diversified, we did some grammar and exercises but also lyrics training and some reading. The location of the Yanapuma Spanish was excellent, it is very close to everything - especially the old town. There are also some activities you can join during the week and also some weekend trips.

"Wonderful experience"

Jodie Wohl, opiskelija _ maasta USA

I really enjoyed my week-long course. My teacher, Giselle, did a nice job alternating among grammar lessons, general conversation, and teaching us a bit about Ecuadorian culture, food, and history, and I also appreciated spending a bit of time with other staff members. The school is in a great location in Quito and the classrooms are comfortable; I also appreciated the free coffee and tea. I added on the cultural outings in the afternoon and that ended up being a great decision: not only did it allow more opportunity to converse in Spanish, but also provided guided tours to several museums, the cathedral, a chocolate purveyor, the botanic garden, and several different neighborhoods. I opted for a hotel which ended up being quite nice and also in a great neighborhood in the historic center of town, with an easy walk to the school every morning. I also appreciated supporting the Foundation, as it seems that it does really great environmental and other work in Ecuador.

My only regret is that I didn't have time to stay longer. My Spanish definitely improved quite a bit even in the one week I had.

"Wonderful immersion experience to life and language in Quito, Ecuador."

Jennifer Wood, opiskelija _ maasta USA

Class was charming and the other students in my class were teachers as well. Curriculum was relevant to my learning needs and interests. The teachers are exceptional and brought something new to the table each class and were not afraid to be learners themselves. I enjoyed the historic downtown area greatly and the building was nice, but a little chilly.

My favorite activities were sharing about my home and describing where I live and spending an afternoon touring historic downtown with my teacher.

Housing was comfortable and clean. Familia Rivera opened up their hearts to me and made it a memorable experince. I will never forget my teachers, helpful office staff and host family and are thankful for all the care they poured into making my experince really great.

"For an old guy, I got a lot out of 4 weeks' immersion."

Michael Langthorne, opiskelija _ maasta USA

48 years since high school Spanish - I wasn't even close to rusty. The teachers could see I was struggling to memorize quickly, so they kept the pace workable for me, and day after day I did become more able to converse. Time with my host family was very good, but also approaching overload since they always spoke rapid-fire. What would have been extremely helpful for me is 2-4 books with simple storylines written in extremely easy Spanish - something a notch beyond "See Jane Run." I realized that sentences helped me remember vocabulary easier than studying lists of words at night. The school is in the historic center of Quito and the architecture is fascinating - I spent hours walking the area taking photos. The only recommendation I have for improving the facilities of the school would be to add another restroom (there's a man's side and woman's side to the one they have, but so close that there's no privacy). Following my 4 weeks at Yanapuma I knew I would be traveling Ecuador alone for the next 6 weeks, so the urgency to learn basic skills helped me stay on track, focusing less on perfect grammar and more on necessities. But now I have a foundation I can build on, and when I feel ready I would happily jump back into language immersion.

"Yanapuma has excellent teachers, a beautiful building, flexible programs, and super friendly and helpful staff."

Joy Brandt

I had taken some Spanish about 25 years before but couldn´t remember any of it. Within the first week my teacher got me speaking and understanding some Spanish, and I was surprised at how quickly I learned. I think it was because Yanapuma uses a communication technique where they teach you through conversation. You´re not just memorizing grammar but learning more the way little kids learn to speak a language. I had thought 4 hours a day would be hard, but I was surprised that the time flew by.
The school in Quito is beautiful and very comfortable. They have all the books and materials that you need. The teachers are excellent! And the staff are very flexible. They went out of their way to allow me to change my plans from time to time.
I especially enjoyed the travel and study programs. I did several of them, and they were very interesting because we visited or sometimes stayed in indigenous communities. Also, traveling with my teacher gave me much more than just four hours of class or conversation per day, because we ate all meals together, studied in the morning and then did activities in the afternoon. Plus, I had many opportunities to interact with other people along the way.
I took about 4 weeks of Spanish the first year and then returned the next year and did another 5 weeks at Yanapuma. After that I continued taking Skype classes, but only once a week. And now I am fluent in Spanish! This is quite amazing since I am in my 60´s.
I highly recommend Yanapuma Spanish School. They definitely know how to teach Spanish. Also, I like that they are a nonprofit school. They give 100% of their profits to help poor indigenous communities throughout Ecuador.

Esitä kysymys

"Is this a Quito AND Cuenca program, or Quito OR Cuenca? Does the student have to choose which city to be in? Or does the program span both cities? Are the classes held in Quito or Cuenca? Are the activities held in Quito AND Cuenca?"

Andrew Kirby,

There are two programs - "Quito Cultural" and "Cuenca Cultural." Each
is a one-week program of Spanish classes and cultural activities and
excursions. These can be repeated up to 3 times in each city as there
are many musuems, churches, parks and other sites of interest.
We have students quite regularly who do one program and then switch to
the other city to do the other. The classes are small-group and the
excursions are usually no more than 2 or 3 persons. We can offer
individual Spanish classes for an extra cost. But otherwise all
transport and entry fees are included in the price. The classes are held at each school, in Quito or in Cuenca.
The activities are in each city, depending on where the student is studying.

"Or are you closed during the Christmas/New Year period?"

Jean-Pierre Coljon, opiskelija _ maasta Kanada
Andrew Kirby,

We usually close just on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Classes do usually start on a Monday but we can actually start them
on any day of the week if it works out that the student arrives midweek.
The homestay can also start on any day of the week. In a regular program
it will start on the Sunday and end on the Saturday night, but we can
add on extra days no problem. Same with the classes.

"Can you compensate for the missed days on Christmas Day and New Year's Day?"

Jean-Pierre Coljon, opiskelija _ maasta Kanada
Andrew Kirby,

What we can do for the classes is credit him with some online classes to
make up for the two days that we are closed.
