REGULAR AND CULTURAL PROGRAM
For those who have had little to no background or exposure to the Spanish Language, we offer a dynamic learning method which is accessible to all ages. Skills developed are basic pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary necessary for everyday living. Basic class covers 40 to 60 hours of instruction time, depending on the student's progress.
At this level, students are able to communicate, and continue to develop their vocabulary. At this level, conversation with native Spanish speakers is stressed, to allow the student to become more comfortable with spontaneous expression and debates on specific issues. Intermediate class covers 20 to 40 hours of instruction time, depending on the student's progress.
For students already quite familiar with the Spanish language, who would like to deepen their grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. Writing, expression, literary and cultural knowledge are also featured in a variety of media. These students will benefit from the variety of materials and sources used in the Advanced level. In this level, students and teachers together determine the issues of interest to be studied, as well as the materials, methods and time-frame. Advanced class covers 20 to 40 hours of instruction time, depending on the student's progress.

VOLUNTEER & ECOLOGIAL PROGRAM
Due to the socio-economic needs from which much of the Ecuadorian population suffers (as in other Latin American countries), many different areas have found themselves in need of seeking government and private help in order to maintain living conditions.
For this reason, MARAZUL SPANISH SCHOOL, through the volunteer work of young people as well as adults around the world, collaborates with different organizations to carry out projects that promote growth in developing sectors.
We can offer short or long term positions for all international volunteers. Ecuador offers a wide range of different possibilities for volunteer work:
