Why Study Spanish in Galapagos:
At this school, you can follow private Spanish classes that take place in the morning from Monday through Friday. The classes are given at a unique location: the rooftop terrace of the student residence. The weather allows for enjoying the sun while simultaneously learning the Spanish language. Spanish Classes can be combined with volunteering at different social or environmental volunteer projects in the town or with activities such as surfing.
During your Spanish program, you will stay at a student residence in San Cristobal, which is shared with other students and volunteers. The student residence is centrally located, just one block from the boulevard of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. The facilities here include air-conditioning, a private bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen and a common area where you can relax in a hammock while enjoying the marvellous view of the port area. Bed linen and towels are provided, and the house will be cleaned a few times per week.
The school organises free activities twice a week. The Galapagos Islands have a lot to offer with their beautiful nature and biodiversity. When not in class the students enjoy the wonderful beaches. If you would like to be more active during your free time, take surfing lessons or go snorkelling and see the unique sea life. The Galapagos is a one-of-a-kind destination and a must when visiting Ecuador where you will never be bored.
San Cristobal belongs to the archipelago of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador and is the most eastern of all the islands. It has incredible nature, impressive wildlife and idyllic beaches, making it an impressive destination. San Cristobal is the site of the first human settlement in the whole archipelago and is the island where Charles Darwin first disembarked in 1835. In the picturesque town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, you will find many good restaurants to try Ecuadorian food and bars for your nights out. For the people who love to sunbathe and swim in the sea, there are beautiful, quiet beaches with turquoise water: this is like studying Spanish in paradise!
The school offers interesting volunteer projects in the Galapagos Islands. Nature lovers can work at an ecological project, where you will help to improve the sustainability of the islands through environmental, community and social initiatives. If you are interested in interacting with the local people, teaching English is a great choice for you. Volunteers are always welcome. Volunteering at the Galapagos will be an enriching experience and always leaves volunteers with a newfound perspective.
During your Spanish program, you can choose from a variety of excursions on the Galapagos Islands. There are different adventure tours like mountain biking, kayaking, scuba diving or snorkelling. Or you visit the Galapaguera, a breeding centre for tortoises. And why not explore the other Galapagos Islands? Daily ferries are leaving from San Cristobal to the islands of Santa Cruz and Isabela. Another fun option is a day tour to Kicker Rock and Isla Lobos to spot sea lions, turtles and even sharks!
