What drives us

Our teachings follow a specific program we call

Learn Spanish

Practice Spanish 

Live Spanish

For those of us at Say Zonte, it’s first and foremost about bringing Spanish to the world. We are the first Spanish School in El Salvador close to one of the most beautiful beaches in El Salvador: El Zonte!

But there is more to what we’re doing with our program.

We’re all on this world together, and the more we can connect, the more we can interact and learn from each other, the better this planet will be. So we are doing our part by showing our corner of the world and giving the gift of language.

Spanish Lessons in El Salvador

Since 2017 SAY ZONTE! has been giving the gift of Spanish to visitors and virtual attendees through a project initially titled the “Spanish School El Zonte.”

Those early days were simple. Lessons were held in El Zonte, with students sitting under a palm tree. Though a humble beginning, we’ve taught students from all over the world and continue to work hard to introduce even more.

Our on-site classes are conducted from the Palo Verde Hotel and the Hostel Esencia Nativa in El Zonte.

If you’d like to hear more about the school or have any questions, you can reach us here.

Je prends des cours avec Alejandra depuis maintenant 1 an et demi et j’adore mon expérience. Au fil du temps, on développe un lien d’amitié et l’apprentissage m’est très bénéfique lors de mes voyages pour discuter avec les gens.

I booked 3hrs/day of lessons for 5 days with Say Zonte during our vacation to El Salvador. The Say Zonte lessons take place in the beautiful Palo Verde hotel, overlooking the beach and ocean. I would certainly recommend lessons with my instructor, William, who made the days fly by with his innovative ways of teaching and practicing Spanish! Lots of games & conversation, while also learning grammar. Would recommend!

I often take Spanish lessons when I travel and Say Zonte! is among the best I've experienced anywhere. The instructors are local to the community and extremely patient & friendly. They had great homework study material to supplement classes and they really helped me with my overall general conversation skills. Classes are outside by the ocean making study sessions fun and relaxing. I'll be taking more classes at Say Zonte when I return to El Salvador!

Patient teachers, helpful resources and crashing waves…this Spanish school has everything you need and more to take your Spanish to the next level! I’ve had a great experience with my teacher (Helen) who has been helping me find the confidence I need to speak Spanish like a local. The Palo Verde hotel is the perfect place to help you get into ‘learning mode’ while also being immersed in local culture. I’m excited to keep up my classes with say Zonte - I would highly recommend to visitors trying to brush up on their language skills or new residents ready to fully immerse!
