2 semanas muy buena de clases de español

Montañita was my first place to stay in Ecuador and it is just the right place to start your travels at.
I took 2 weeks of one on one lessons in the Mar azul Spanish school. For me it was the best decision to go. I learned a lot in the two weeks and can speak spanish now. Well I need practice a lot more but I learned all the necesary basics to travel by myself in south amercia.
Mar Azul is a great school, very relaxed atmosphere in a green garda on the beach. Heli my teacher was really, really nice as well. I learned a lot spanish but also she told me lots of things about Ecuador. Within was very interesting, to get those informations for first hand.
I also liked it a lot because I was able t oschedule my classes like I wanted to and I wanted to learn.
I would go to Mar Azul Spanish School over and over again if I did it again
I wish the Mar azul School, Heli and Gaby all the best for the future
See you again Ecuador

Montanita is the perfect town to hangout for a while. It´s got beach, good surf and a very good nightlife. Lots of bars, restaurant and a very nice cocktailbar alley. Lots of things to do over there and in half an hour you can be in the rainforest if you like. There is a great mix of people from all over the world and from all walks of life. The vibe is absolutely Relaxed with a big R. If you visit Ecuador, than this is a ´must go´. Although there are a lot of tourists and backpackers, it doesn´t feel too touristic. The town is one of a kind and you just feel good if you´re hanging out there.
I have stayed for a week with my wife and it was good fun. We decided to learn some Spanish and turned out to be a perfect choice. We went to Mar Azul, just outside the center. It´s a smaller school than the one in the center, but from what I have heard from that place in relation to our experience with Mar Azul, it´s not a difficult choice where to go to. We had private lessons from Gaby (she is the owner) for 6 dollars per person per hour. We did 5 times 2 hours, which was perfect for us. It really made the difference between talking with your hands, (which takes long sometimes) and just asking for what you need, or actually being able to have a conversation in Spanish. The atmosphere in the school is quiet and nice. Most of the time outside.
Gaby was really nice and patient with us (was necessary sometimes :-) But it was good to learn in your own pace and focus on some things we would specifically like to learn. After two lessons we were practicing everything we learned and also having conversations about Ecuador and Holland (where we are from) at the same time. This was very nice, because it didn´t feel like being in a classroom and just learning lines at all. It was a good experience, we have learned al lot and it made the rest of our trip more comfortable communication wise.

Well, it was time for a holiday. I also wanted to improve my Spanish.
I like the sea, the beach, ... And I wanted to visit Ecuador
again. I like the country. So I decided this time I'll go to the
coast of Ecuador.
My hostal "Los cactus" was en Manglaralto - a nice, small village -
the perfect place to relax. The spanish-school "Mar azul" was in
Montanita, near Manglaralto. Montanita is a very good place to
surf, to relax on the beach (and to party).
The school "Mar azul" is near the beach. I had private
classes - 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. I wanted to speak
as much as possible. It's also possible to start earlier or later.
The time table is flexible.
During my stay I had two teachers - Isabel and Miquel. They are both
from Ecuador. We spoke about different topics, read short stories, made
different exercises, .... Well, time is flying, when you are having fun.
And the classes were fun. And they also gave me advices for my trips.
I really enjoyed my stay in Ecuador. The only disadvantage was, that I
had to return to Germany.
