The good weather, nice and friendly people, beautiful landscapes, and clear pronunciation of the locals make Cuenca the best place to learn Spanish. 

Cuenca is the safest city in the Andean region in South America. The culture in town is a combination of modern and traditional experiences. We have a lot of activities and you will never get bored. The restaurants in the city are amazing and you will find fantastic food from all over the world. 

Cuenca is the perfect destination to book Spanish lessons. 

The Spanish Institute was created in 2010. And we are one of the main schools in the city. We have had students from all over the world. The institute is located in a privileged area  of Cuenca, two blocks from the main plaza. We offer you a complete immersion of the Latino and Spanish culture. All the professors are not only nice people but also great professionals. We can assure you  that you will have fun learning Spanish.  


We have a lot of activities waiting for you.

I’m Eva Franco, CEO of the Spanish Institute

I invite you to learn with us. In our institute you will learn easily and quickly while having lots of fun.

We have activities like the slang club, or walking Spanish lessons. Our methodology is based on conversation and practical activities. You will learn Spanish while you know the city.


What students are saying about us

"I’m so glad that I found this place. I’ve been here for two months and the amount of Spanish I know is night and day. I can finally speak in full sentences and the teachers here are a amazing. They’re like family. They also have showed me around Cuenca and it’s beautiful culture but I couldn’t do it without the help of them. They also provided me an amazing home stay to stay at. Everyone here cares a lot and they want the best for you and I’m so amazed and so happy with the amount of Spanish I have learned."

"The Spanish Institute of Cuenca offered the best program (the course was tailored to my needs; at good rate; convenient schedule; and great location). It was a true cultural immersion, as the instructors helped with recommendations and even arranged salsa classes per my ask! Very friendly, simply-lovely and warm environment!"

Aliaksandra Volha Tyhrytskaya

"I am having a great experience with Eva learning Spanish. She is patient, kind and always ready to hear about day to day events that occur to an expat in Cuenca. I especially enjoyed our lunch class to have pernil sandwiches. Lots of fun. She also provided a translation service. Also, I have to mention Johnny who lent me a helping hand. I wish them good fortune in their future endeavors."

Ambrose Joseph

"If you want to learn Spanish fast, in a fun atmosphere and at a very affordable price, look no further. THIS IS THE PLACE!! We are so happy that we found the Spanish Institute. From the very first class we took with Eva we knew that she was the right teacher for us. Her classes are always fun, interesting and we have learned so much in a short amount of time. We have even been on field trips to the local markets to buy fruit, vegetables, etc. Eva answered all of our many questions and we now feel very confident shopping on our own."
