About Elli

Called the “light of the Americas” for its esteemed achievements in the arts during the colonial era, Quito, Ecuador was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an ancient Incan city. High up in the Andes mountains at 2,850 m and divided by the equator itself, it is a mix of the colonial and modern worlds. It has a rich history and as a  recognized UNESCO World Heritage site boasts one of the finest preserved and unaltered historical centers in Latin America. Its locals from Panecillo to RuccuPichincha are warm and friendly people who are happy to share their traditions and cultures. Elli Quito seeks to provide for the needs of the local community in learning English with experienced teachers in a quality learning environment with classes for all ages.
