Skype Program
Skyping Girl

“At first the idea of Skyping with someone on a different continent made me feel somewhat skeptical, but the reality of the ease of Skyping and the flexibility of the scheduling and location made me change my mind.”

Erica, Licensed Language Teacher

Our online program is flexible and convenient. You can schedule classes 7 days a week from early morning to late evening for as many hours as you can fit into your busy schedule. You don’t have to schedule the same days and times each week, and you don’t have to leave the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. You can take your classes virtually any time or anywhere you have Internet access.

“Working with Fernando and Segunda Lengua Spanish School via Skype was a great experience and a perfect way to brush up on my Spanish before I moved to Ecuador. They are very easy to work with and worked around my schedule. Fernando is a wonderful teacher and I can’t wait to continue lessons with him once I am in South America. If I would have known Skype lessons were available I would have started much earlier. I highly recommend this to anyone about to travel to South America!”

Our Unique Program in Ecuador: Spanish School Without Walls

Segunda Lengua Spanish School is based in Otavalo, Ecuador in the heart of one of the most fascinating areas in South America. We offer a truly unique immersion program that combines exciting travel with immersion.  Learning takes place on-site in fascinating cultural and geographical sites, not in a classroom.  For example, you may learn about the famous Andean raptors at a condor park,  or walk through one of the most famous markets in South America and learn how to bargain in Spanish.


Classes are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours, and you can begin your classes at anytime during the year at a level that is comfortable for you. You can choose to study one-on-one with one of our highly qualified teachers or in small group classes of 3 or 4 students.

Discover Ecuador as You Learn

IYou’ll be immersed in Spanish while touring and experiencing this fascinating country, enriching your cultural knowledge as well as improving your language skills. For example, take part in a traditional shaman healing ceremony dating back to Incan times; visit the workshops of local weavers creating intricate weavings with yarn dyed with natural plant and animal products:

or hike the surrounding countryside to see stunning crater lakes, pristine waterfalls and breathtaking mountain scenery with snow-capped volcanoes.
