hey! I'm a 21 year old Female from Australia looking to go to Ecuador (most likely Quito) next year to learn spanish for one month. I'm trying to plan my trip on a small budget and I was wondering if anyone could give me any information on some of the best (and cheapest) places/schools to learn good spanish?
Also does anyone know the best way to get from Quito to Buenos Aires???
Any information on travel around South America at all would be greatly appreciated...
I was studing Spanish in Argentina, first in Buenos Aires, then Bariloche, Cordoba and Salta. The best School in South America is Patagonia School because they have scolarships for travellers with low budget. Scolarships are in fifferents zone, maybe you want contact the school, see www.patagoniaschool.com
My budget was small too, but they were looking for cheap and good lodging for me. The school is excellent and beautiful. Argentina is a wonderful country and their food Mmmmm asado, empanadas and it is not expensive. Bariloche is like Aspen and Salta is a very special city.
If you decide to go the other way (argentina to ecuador), I would recommend Edena Spanish School in Buenos Aires. I am currently learning spanish there and the teachers and facilities are great. Also, one of the cheapest I have seen in BA.
