Learn Spanish in Cuenca, Ecuador
Cuenca is the cultural capital of Ecuador and its third largest city. It is also Ecuador's best-kept secret. Cuenca and its surrounding region are rich in history, with a colonial atmosphere that has survived thanks to years of almost complete isolation.
Cuenca is a city of fascinating contrasts: two universities, museums and art galleries stand alongside Indian markets rarely visited by foreigners. Exploring this delightful Latin American city and getting to know its friendly people will make you want to stay forever...
Estudio Sampere Cuenca is situated in a detached building overlooking the Barranco River in the city centre.
The school has seven classrooms, a small garden, common room, library and video room.
It has a friendly atmosphere, and the director and staff are Ecuadorians who make up a professional and committed team.

Travelling in Ecuador:
It is worth taking some time to explore Ecuador. Almost all of our students spend several days or weeks travelling through the Ecuadorian sierras, jungles and beaches after their course.
The Ecuadorians are friendly and hospitable, and a network of buses connects the country, taking adventurous travellers to exotic and fascinating places. For a few dollars you can find a room in a simple and clean hotel or hostel.
Sampere Cuenca will be happy to help you plan your trip. Galapagos is a dream come true for any nature lover!
