Welcome

Clara Luna Spanish  Language School!
Clara Luna is the perfect place to learn Spanish in Ecuador. Located on Ecuador's famous National Park of Machalilla, you can have an amazing experience enjoying the culture, language and biodiversity here.
Between classes you can relax at the beach, help the community, learn the culture, go surfing, practice yoga, diving, horseback riding or explore Machalilla National Park.
Our program gives you the unique opportunity to work on your Spanish skills and support the education of local school children.  Clara Luna is run by the director of Café de Lenguas y Cultura, a local nonprofit dedicated to improving literacy, cultural awareness, and educational opportunities in the local community.

About us

OUR METHODOLOGY
Our classes are fun and effective. We believe in the importance of small class sizes as they enable more personalized and higher quality instruction. Classes are dynamic and conversational, and give students the confidence they need to communicate inside and outside the classroom. We encourage students to communicate only in Spanish while at the school and immerse themselves in the language as much as possible.

OUR LOCATION
Our school is located Puerto Lopez, which is an ideal place to learn Spanish. Puerto Lopez is a small fishing town on the coast of Ecuador. It is surrounded by National Parks, wildlife reserves, indigenous communities, and some of the best surfing beaches in South America! The locals are very friendly, and will give you plenty of opportunities to practice Spanish and learn about the area’s culture.

OUR PROJECT "CAFÉ DE LENGUAS Y CULTURA"
Cafe de Lenguas y Cultura is a relatively new organization in Puerto Lopez. We currently have a small library open to the community and offer language classes, recycling workshops, environmental education, and an after school program for kids called “Club de Niños.” “Club de Niños” is our most successful project so far, and most of the funding we receive from Clara Luna’s Spanish classes goes towards supporting activities for this project.

The main goals in our “Club de Niños,” or “Kid’s Club,” are to promote literacy, encourage a love of reading, and spark academic curiosity. We offer a wide variety of free extracurricular activities and workshops for children in the community, including music, environmental education, recycling, and arts and crafts. All the workshops are run by volunteers and depend on their particular skills or interests.
