Testimonials

  • Review by Jerry

    "I studied with Mar Azul in 2015 and went from zero to understanding many of the core concepts such as conjugation, feminine and masculine in the language. Now I am back in 2016 to continue, working on learning past tense and future. Mar Azul has helped this thick tongued single language America begin on the long road toward becoming a Spanish speaker."

    "I studied in MarAzul for a month and had the best time learning Spanish. The teachers are very professional and Gaby is the sweetest. She welcomed us and gave us the full use of the school’s facilities. When not in the school, I was practicing my Spanish in the town or learning to surf in Montañita’s fantastic beach. I cannot recommend this school enough! It is small and personal so you will make friends easily."

    "I arrived in Montañita without my luggage and Gaby helped me with speaking to the airlines. I loved the private classes and the host was very accommodating to rearrange my classes to suit my socializing and surfing. I absolutely love MarAzul Spanish School and I would recommend it to any one going to Montañita. Thanks again Gaby!"

    "During a 3-month trip through South America, I stayed in Montañita for over a month. Wanting to learn surfing and Spanish, I contacted Gaby for lessons. The lessons were amazing. I took daily private lessons throughout my stay. The classes were great. Luckily, this is not one of those classes where you write all the time. You talk a lot, and in a month covered virtually all the grammar. Apart from that, Gaby is such a warm and great person, and do not forget Kyle the dog. She helped me right after the first contact with the accommodation and transportation from Guayaquil. Apart from classes, she gives regular dinners at her place, or gathers everyone for nights out in town. All in all, this is a fantastic experience for everyone who wants to learn to speak Spanish quickly and meet a wonderful person!"
