Ecela - Santiago, Chile
Santiago is the safest and the most prosperous city in South America. And that’s not all; it also has the highest standard of living in the region. The city is a central starting point for many sports such as rafting, hiking, mountaineering (climbing) and skiing.
Santiago is situated in the center of Chile and consequently an attractive place to begin your travels, as other parts of the country and the region are easily accessible from here, and it has about 6 million inhabitants. With its theaters, bars, salsa and dance clubs it offers countless cultural attractions and endless entertainment.
The school is located in the neighborhood of Providencia, one of the best in Santiago. It is the ideal location for your Spanish immersion, close to many restaurants, bars, cafes, attractive parks, museums, cinemas and shops. Providencia is an upper-middle class neighbourhood and is safe at all hours. Our school is a large, comfortable, colonial-style buiding with a spacious patio. We have 15 classrooms and several common areas with free Internet access where our students can enjoy breaks.
