Students' Testimonials

 

 

"Having spent several Canadian winters in South America we decided it was time we raised our spoken Spanish above 'survival level'. We shopped around the schools in Guatemala and Ecuador and decided on Cristobal Colon in Quito. We stayed for two weeks and opted for the 4 hour morning classes one on one format. During this time we were able to raise our vocabulary level, received a very good introduction to the 3 key verbs, and not to be forgotten, the pronunciation of the vowels in Spanish. Jose the Director operates a very efficient school and each teacher is required to come to class prepared for that day, at the end of which you are given a small sheet indicating what was attempted, accomplished. I wanted to better my speaking ability for locational situations, e.g., at the bus terminal, looking for a specific type of room, at the Supermarket, etc. I feel now that Colon has assisted me tremendously in such cases. An aside big plus for us was that the Hostel is within the same building, has a kitchen you can use, and the rooms vary in size all with 'con Banos privado'. We had room #7. As a retired Director of a dual lingual school, my wife a former Science teacher, we felt we were in a position to conduct a reasonable evaluation of Cristobal Colon, and would recommend it should you be seeking to better your level of Spanish comprehension and speaking. Since leaving Quito we've attended another Spanish speaking school much further south in Ecuador and there is a vast difference in calibre of teacher(s) we have had. Cristobal Colon gets our very positive recommend".

"I have studied at Spanish schools in 5 different countries, and I can honestly say that these were the best lessons I've had. I loved having 1-on-1 lessons everyday because I was able to ask questions without feeling like I was slowing a group down. Isabel was able to answer all of my questions and worked with me extensively on advanced grammar. Jose is a great director and is ALWAYS available for whatever problems you are having! Everytime I e-mailed him, he responded within 30 minutes. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. I also greatly enjoyed my volunteer work through Cristóbal Colón! I got to spend two months with some wonderful kids that I'm going to miss so much! I couldn't believe what I got here for such a great price. Thank you Cristóbal Cólon!!!"

"Lovely hostel. We stayed here for three weeks whilst studying at the attached school (Cristobal Colon spanish school - also highly recommended - Estefania is a great teacher). You can have discounted rates on school and accommodation if you stay for slightly longer periods as we did. The bedroom was a great size with nice parquet floor and storage space for our things. The ensuite was nice and there was always hot water. Carlos cleaned our room and changed our towels and bed linen almost everyday it seemed - in fact he seemed disappointed when we said we didn't need him to! Very very nice. Kitchen is big, plenty of storage space and crockery and left over condiments etc from previous guests. There is also a big sitting area with sofas and a TV, and a nice little covered balcony with a hammock and views over Quito and the mountain. There are a few new posh rooms on the top floor which have been renovated to a high spec. We stayed in the area attached to the school rooms, which felt nice and private but could be noisy from people having lessons outside from about 9am. Very safe, friendly, and homely - a lovely introduction to Ecuador."

"I also studied at cristobal colon Spanish school. I can highly recommend them. The rates are very reasonable (some of the cheapest in south America). Jose, the director, is a very friendly and helpful guy and wants you to enjoy your time there. I studied there for one month in September 2012. My teacher was Maria Mercedes I can honestly say she is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had. She writes personalised notes for every class which are really helpful. All of her classes are well structured and if there is anything you don't understand she is more than happy to spend extra time on a subject. She is very friendly and always encouraging you to get the most out of the classes. Overall a very positive experience and these classes helped me considerably in my subsequent travels around south America."

"Cristobal Colon has a lot going for it. First off it's got the cheapest lessons, no fees and a great patio to study under the sun. If you can see from the second picture, to the right of the window there is a large balcony with desks for studying. It's also set back from the street and very quiet, creating a great learning environment. The school's director is very professional and eager to help."

"Cristobal Colon is about 3 blocks away from the tourist district on a very commercial street. This is helpful for two reasons. First, its less touristy than the Mariscal so you will use your spanish more when you go about your day. Also, food costs are far lower than the Mariscal. There is an incredible chicken place next door where you can get a great meal and coke for $2, good luck finding that in the Mariscal! Finally, Cristobal Colon has a great hostal, (which is really more like a hotel from what I saw) there is a kitchen, dining room and its very close to a super market, if you want to eat something other than rice and chicken (ecuador's staple meal). The hostal is directly attached to the school. You could literally roll out of bed and into your classes. Too easy mate!"


"I moved to Ecuador not speaking the language. I had tried to learn at other schools but it did not help me that much. Then I found the Cristobal Colon Spanish school. I am learning the language rapidly and able to speak write and understand in Spanish. My teacher Maria Mercedes, takes the time to make sure I understand the material before moving on, and always use the past lessons to reinforce my knowledge. I would recommend this school to anyone in the Quito area wanting to learn Spanish."

"I spent four weeks at Christóbal Colón Spanish School in January 2013. I am 65+ - la tercera edad - so it was quite an experience in many ways and a good one too. My teacher pulled me through the necessary grammar, gave me a lot of homework and trained me in conversation so that I was able to travel in Ecuador, talking to a lot of very nice persons and feeling secure. She had a degree in literature so we had a common interest there. Our conversation also taught me very much about Ecuador and South America which I did not know. Christóbal Colón Spanish School can certainly be recommend even if you are 65+. The hostal connected to the school is clean, reasonably cheap and you can find good company there."
