Flip – Ecuador
Sitting on the equator in the heart of the Andes, Ecuador is packed with startling contrasts of scenery, from steaming tropical rainforests and windswept highlands to ice-capped volcanoes and palm-fringed beaches, all within easy reach of the beautifully preserved and culturally vibrant colonial capital of Quito. This beautiful city has a population of over two million and is located almost 10,000 feet above sea level. Quito is a city of human and cultural diversity and contrasts, effortlessly combining a respect for tradition with an embrace of the new. Quito has over 500 churches, museums, and numerous examples of colonial architecture and it’s one of the most beautiful cities on the continent offering the perfect atmosphere for our students to practice Spanish in real social and cultural contexts and simultaneously being exposed to real-life experiences.
The program combines language immersion with cultural awareness and art appreciation. The language coaching is not confined to a classroom setting; instead it takes place at museums, mercados, galleries, historical sites, and cafeterias where real cultural and language immersion takes place.
Every day there is a personalized, guided tour with your coach to discover the cultural richness of the city and to practice your language skills. At FL!P Ecuador the city is your classroom!
