The Spanish School Surpacifico in Manta is a nice place to learn Spanish. The people are very friendly and search the personally contact to you. The School has different nice teachers and is very professional. The building has different small classrooms and places around the house for the lessons what I liked. I preferred also the lessons with the private teachers, so I could improve my Spanish. An important reason my I choose this school is the closeness to the beach Santa Marianita for Kite Surfing.

We have really enjoyed our week in Manta. We're studying Spanish as part of the travelling classroom programme, where you spend 4 weeks in 4 different schools.
The school in Manta is fantastic, friendly and welcoming staff and excellent teaching. The school is a lovely place to study and relax after class. The activities are great fun too, in particular the paragliding and trip to a local nature reserve forest.
We've really enjoyed the travelling classroom, the perfect combination of study and activities. As part of this we've been to Quito, the rainforest, Manta and Montañita. The homestays are a great opportunity to get to know the locals while practicing our Spanish and the lodge in the jungle was beautiful and completely unforgettable!
