You can learn or improve your Spanish language skills.
The soft, clear accent prevalent throughout Ecuador makes the country an ideal place for all levels of Spanish speakers. The World Endeavors Intern in Ecuador programs includes 20 hours of language instruction in small-group setting. This is a great opportunity for beginners to become accustomed to the language and for the more advanced speaker to practice using their language skills!
It’s a culturally immersive experience.
Interns in Quito have the wonderful opportunity to live with local Ecuadorian families. Having meals each day with your host family will greatly improve your Spanish, and will provide better insight into what it is really like to live as a local in Quito. World Endeavors participants often note that they are welcomed into their home stay not as a guest, but as a true member of their new Ecuadorian family.
Quito offers endless amounts of entertainment.
There is plenty to see and discover in the Ecuador’s capital city. The Old City (better known as Centro Histórico) is one of the largest, best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. In fact, the city of Quito was one of the first World Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO in 1978! Any afternoon could be spent wandering through one of Quito’s many museums, enjoying the art, culture, and history. Explore the restaurants and bars, relax in a favorite park, or take a short trip just outside Quito for amazing views of the city, the Andes Mountains, and more.
It’s not going to hurt your bank account.
We know that participating in an international program can seem like a financially daunting decision. That’s why World Endeavors is so proud to offer the most affordable intern, study, and volunteer abroad opportunities! Ecuador is a fantastic choice for anyone concerned with cost. With so many included features – airport reception, housing, meals, insurance, language classes, and more – it’s hard to believe this is one of our most affordable international internship options!
