ECELA Viña del Mar

(227 ratings)

ECELA is located in the attractive city of Viña del Mar, close to the famous bohemian town of Valparaíso. The school combines a welcoming atmosphere with high quality Spanish lessons in well-organized courses. The team of staff are friendly, particularly the 'Kitchen Tías' who provide free refreshments during lesson breaks. 

With schools in various South American destinations, ECELA enables you to split your Spanish course over more than one city without breaking the flow of your studies. After your course in Chile, why not continue your classes in Peru or Argentina to take advantage of seeing more of this beautiful continent?

The school is situated in the city centre. You will find numerous restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Public transport is available around the clock and the nearest metro station is just one block away. You can easily reach the main sights and explore the city. The neighborhood is safe and offers plenty of entertainment and opportunities for recreation. The bright classrooms create the ideal learning conditions, and the large terrace is perfect for relaxing afternoons having barbeques or taking a break between classes. In the lounges you will also have plenty of time to share moments with your fellow classmates.

To help you to discover the area and get to know your classmates, ECELA organizes various activities for your free time including tours of the city, dance and cookery lessons, museum visits, days at the beach, sports matches, horseback riding and film nights. Some of these activities are free and others are offered at a reduced price. ECELA can also help you to organize longer excursions further afield for your weekends, if you wish. All the teachers have a university degree and, on average, over two years of experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
