Discover the Languages of Ecuador

Ecuador's official language is Spanish, but Quichua, an Inca language, is spoken by the Indian population. Besides Spanish, ten native languages are spoken in Ecuador. English is the most spoken foreign language amongst tourist providers and professionals.

More people come to Ecuador daily in order to learn Spanish. It's more fun to travel if you know the language of the country. First of all, it's cheaper than studying in Spain and Ecuadorian Spanish is the least dialect-influenced Spanish in South America. And language schools in Ecuador have professional experience.

We have compiled a small list of Spanish words and phrases to help you get around and understand the locals better during your time spent traveling in Ecuador and Galapagos Islands.

If I was getting Rosetta Stone Spanish to prepare for my future travels to Ecuador and Chile, would I better off with the (Latin America) version or (Spain) version?

Esta es una página para extranjeros que desean información acerca de Ecuador, es mucho mejor acostumbrarse a leer en Inglés ya que Español es nuestro lenguaje oficial y lo sabemos muy bien como puedes apreciar si entendiste la lectura, nuestro Castellano es extremadamente bueno si lo comparas con el resto de Sur América.
