About the school and City

IH Quito affiliated to IH World Organisation of language schools in 2014, and is an authorized Cambridge English Language Assessment centre covering the Sierra region of Ecuador. IH Quito is an established and well-known school in the city, offering general English, exam preparation, YL courses and teacher training. 

IH Quito is in the central business district of Quito, the capital city of Ecuador. 
At an elevation 2,850 metres above sea level and located right on the equator, Quito is truly a unique city. In the heart of the Ecuadorian Andes it boasts breathtaking views of surrounding mountains and volcanoes. Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centres in the Americas and was among the first World Cultural Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO in 1978. 

Ecuador is one of the smaller South American countries but is unbelievably diverse, from pristine Jungle, to Andean Paramo to tropical beaches and of course the Galapagos Islands, meaning you will have no shortage of options when planning a trip during one of the many Ecuadorian national holidays.
