We have designed our own curriculum materials based on the recommendations of El Instituto Cervantes. All of our school locations use the same curriculum to make travel amongst them seamless.
Our professors use a variety of teaching methods to best teach each and every student. We at ECELA realize that no two people learn in the same way, so lessons and teaching strategies are varied to teach all Spanish learners.

Our staff takes care of activity planning for you! Each day an activity is offered to all students, sometimes free of charge and sometimes for a nominal fee. There is an activity for all types of students, from discussion groups to horseback tours.
