One of the best online spanish lessons
Through my experience of teaching Spanish, I have become very aware of the different needs and requirements of foreigners on arriving in Ecuador. I have therefore developed direct contacts with people offering other services, who are both experienced in their field and recommended in different guidebooks.
Through the recommendations of my students, I know a professional salsa teacher who can teach you to dance salsa, merengue, cumbia, ballenato and son cubano in no time.
I know a number of families who have been acting as host families to foreign students for a long time. You would have a private bedroom, three meals a day or less if you wish, and your laundry would be done for you. However, above all, you would have a good opportunity to practice your Spanish. The families are based near to Mariscal, in residential areas near to spanish schools, banks and travel agents.
The cost of staying with a family is 22 dollars per day including 3 meals, 19 dollars per day including 2 meals and 15 dollars per day with just breakfast.
If the student would like to, they can live in my house and receive the same service as with other host families; what does vary is the location and the cost. I live in the Chillos Valley, surrounded by beautiful countryside and great views of volcanoes and the valle.
I have worked as a volunteer in different organisations with street children and also in environmental organizations. This has enabled me to make contacts with various organisations who are always looking for volunteers and can provide voluntary work for tourists.
