Discover what sets us apart from the rest of the language schools in Cuenca.
Did you know that most English teachers in Cuenca do not have college degrees and are not certified teachers in the United States? They teach English in Cuenca because they are native speakers. Nothing more! Cuenca English Academy is an exclusive school and your teacher is a California State Certified Teacher who also holds a Master’s Degree in Education with the specialization in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).
