Why Study in Ecuador?
Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America, but it has a diversity that many larger countries can only dream of. Its natural landscape includes Amazon rainforest, Andean highlands, gorgeous beaches and the Galapagos Islands. Ecuador has a friendly and welcoming culture, so World Endeavors students can easily become part of a university community, and the blend of indigenous, Spanish, and international influences here makes for a fascinating living and learning environment. With a dialect of Spanish that’s renowned for being clear and easy to understand, Ecuador is an ideal place to become immersed in the language, and it’s a perfect jumping-off point for exploring South America.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.
