As a student of Spanish language, I have attended language schools in Nicaragua, Peru and Ecuador. Of all the language schools I have attended I will have to say that the quality of instruction and experience was best at Surpacifico in Manta. I felt so much this way, that I returned to the school for two more month-long sessions in different years. I had the pleasure of being taught by several instructors and each were well-qualified, professional and I was able to learn a lot. I particularly enjoyed the instruction by Margoth, who was available at my request and taught me so much. The entire experience at the school, homestay family and Manta, as a city, was superb. Not only were the staff at the school friendly and competent but the homestay family experience was truly beneficial in having the total immersion in the language and culture. Manta has a lot to offer students with a fine beach, growing community, great food and especially friendly people. Manta is a safe place for foreigners but like any city if you don't use common sense you can get into trouble. I know most of the expats here and they too feel safe and will say the same thing. I enjoyed my experience so much here in Manta that I bought an apartment and now live here. The Spanish that I learned at Surpacifico has helped so much that I am now able to converse with the locals without difficulty. I have recently contacted the school and am planning to enroll again in classes to learn the advanced levels of the language. I know I have choices, even in Manta, to learn the language, but for me I will definitely return to Surpacifico where I know I will receive excellent education for the money.
