NRCSA Center: EIS - Cuenca, Ecuador  


About The NRCSA Center

These courses in Cuenca are taught with the same quality and individualized attention which distinguish the locations in Spain. Our goal is to be one of the best at teaching the Spanish Language to foreigners in South America. We are achieving our goal through:

    * Individual attention in small group and one-on-one settings.

    * Quality teaching in a friendly environment.

    * Qualified teachers and up-to-date materials.

All teachers hold a college degree or are college diploma holders. They make up a coordinated and enthusiastic team and many of our teachers have been with us for many years.


About Cuenca

Cuenca has successfully preserved its colonial past from its cobbled streets, churches, prehispanic ruins, museums and craft shops to its colourful Indian markets. This cultural heritage is found side by side with modern office buildings, art galleries and two Universities, all in a world brimming with colors and contrasts.

Cuenca is located in an Andean valley at an altitude of 2,200 metres, and the climate is spring like, with average temperatures ranging between 14 and 24 C. The region is rich in history and tradition -the Ingapirca ruins and picturesque craft villages such as Chordeleg are found nearby. Nature in Ecuador displays all her magnificence- the Cajas Natural Park and Avenida de los Volcanes (Volcano Avenue) are easily accessible.

To reach Cuenca from abroad, one must first travel to Quito, Capital of the Republic of Ecuador. Today there are many airlines which link Europe and the United States with Quito at reasonable prices. Airlines such as Iberia, Air France, KLM, Lufthansa, Avianca, American Airlines and Viasa fly regularly to Quito with one intermediate stop. Your travel agency can recommend the best prices.
