I went to Manta in Ecuador for a project and I had the chance to study in the Surpacifico Spanish School. I lived in the flat of the school during all my stay in Manta, which was really a great opportunity for me. I was in the classes every morning and it was also possible to do some activities and to visit other places after school. I discovered and learned a lot of things thanks to Surpacifico Spanish School.

For me, it was an nice experience. The teachers were super friendly and professionals, the classes were pretty good and I learned a lot of Spanish, which helped me for example to have conversations with locals. During the lessons, it was great to have the one-to-one course with a different teacher each week, so it was possible for me to learn fast and to have after the opportunity to have some discussion. And it also was great to discuss with the other students and teachers during the group conversations. It was really an excellent experience for me and I would recommend to go to this place if you have the opportunity to visit Manta.

I also appreciate to live in the flat. We were some students together, people went and go and each week was different, everyone had his room, but we cooked together and it was possible to use the terrasse. We spent a lot of time together and I appreciate to be with the others. I also was sometimes alone and I never had any problem in Manta. The manager was always present to help and find solutions when it was necessary. I really have good memories when I think at my time in Manta / Ecuador, and I'm really thankful to the manager, his family and his team for all they made for me and for all they gave me during my stay in Manta. I'm still thinking today, 7 years after, to go back there and visit them.

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.

I studied Spanish for 2 months here with Surpacifico in Manta Ecuador. The
instructors were very good and very professional. The cost of the course
was quite reasonable and the location central to all activities in
Manta. The only drawback is the street noise at times but this is after
all Latin America where much energy is put into horn honking. I liked
Manta so much I am now a resident living here.
