Hola Chicos! Soy Davide and soy de Switzerland. Three weeks ago I came to AMAUTA Peru to study Spanish and to get a true cultural experience. The main reason I came to Peru was to get to know my mother´s native culture and language! She grew up in Lima but has been living in Switzerland ever since. It was always a dream of mine to spend more time in this wonderful country and to do so in an enriching way. Because of this, not only do I study Spanish but I also started volunteering in Cusco at a local dog shelter!
It has been great seeing my Spanish improve the way it has. My mother always spoke to me from a young age so I did not have too much trouble understanding, but my speaking has dramatically improved over this short period of time. Much of this is because of AMAUTA´s methodology which is very conversation-focused. Whatever grammar points I or my fellow students lack we are sure to review, but we do so in a way that helps us to use it in a practical way. We then typically go out on cultural excursions through the city and practice it first-hand with local people from Cusco.
I did not know that my mother´s homeland was so close to so many natural treasures! I recently took trips to Lake Titicaca and Rainbow Mountain and both were stunning and radically different. Every week I am able to study Spanish, work at the dog shelter and learn about Peruvian culture and then see an amazing piece of the local landscape, and sometimes all of these things happen at once! I cannot recommend AMAUTA Spanish School enough and hope that my fellow Swiss, as well as people from all over the world, come to enjoy the wonderful school and the city of Cusco.

¡Buenos Dias a todos! Soy Valquiria y soy de Brasil! I´ve been at Amauta Spanish School for the past month and have loved every second of it. I had studied Spanish for one year in Sao Paulo, but I felt like I needed to be exposed to a Spanish-speaking culture, as well as different teaching styles. That’s why I came to AMAUTA. One of the major reasons that my Spanish has improved so much over the course of this month is because I had different teachers during my time here. This helped to keep the classes fresh and exciting! Culturally, it was eye-opening and really moving to see how passionate all of the teachers were about their culture! In Brasil, we don´t discuss much of our pre-Colombian history, but here in Cusco it is an essential part of the identity of the Peruvian people and something they are very proud of. Each field trip to the museums or temples was so interesting information. Even the class where we learned to make the famous drink Pisco Sour became a class that helped me improve my use of the subjunctive!
My experience at AMAUTA has been one of the best of my life, and I cannot recommend it enough. And make sure to explore the city and the surroundings, it’s amazing. Here you see one my favorite place here: the majestic Lago Humantay (see picture)!

Hola a todos, me llamo Dieuwertje y soy de Holanda! This is my final week at AMAUTA and it is very sad to say goodbye. I took advanced Spanish classes in Cusco with a wonderful group of other students and learned a ton. The Spanish classes are intimate and interactive, and the teachers at AMAUTA really did a great job of making learning fun and practical. Every day after leaving class as I wandered in Cusco I found ways to use what I had recently learned in class; this made classes more fulfilling and really helped to ingrain the knowledge!
It was also great to go out of the classroom into the city of Cusco and to do our cultural visits with our teachers! We went to the Pre-Colombian Art Museum, the famous local Almudena Cemetery, and tomorrow we are hiking to the Temple of the Sun! Every class is different and that keeps us all excited and constantly learning. It also helps that the teachers are absolutely hilarious and extremely knowledgeable about much more than just the Spanish language.
Outside of class, I took a lot of trips with Dos Manos Travel because Peru is so amazingly beautiful and unique! I think my favorite trip so far has been to Lake Titicaca. The scenery is stunning and I got to stay with a local family on the island of Amantani and experienced their way of life. The family even dressed up my friends and me in the local dress and then we all had a big party in the town square!
I cannot say enough about AMAUTA Spanish School and its staff! I highly recommend coming to Cusco, and AMAUTA in particular, if you want to learn Spanish or if you just want to have a great cultural experience.

Good teachers who are patient (very important) and speak clearly. This is very important, given the local Argentine accent being somewhat different to others in the Spanish-speaking world. A range of after class activities are available in the afternoons. It's good to take advantage of all the opportunities you can get to practice your Spanish.

I am currently following classes of Spanish at Amauta Buenos AiresI have had 4 weeks of classes so far and I can honestly say they are amazing! I love the personal attention that you get because you are just with 3 or 4 in one class. The staff is very very friendly and helpfull and this makes me feel like the school is my second home.I love the interactive part of the teaching methods, for example, by playing games or listening assignments. This keeps the material fun and easier to learn! Every student and teacher also practices more outside of the classes, in the breaks and during the (awesome) activities that happen every monday and wednesday! My Spanish is improved a lot because of all these aspects. I also love the location of the school, in barolo palacio, a very old but charming building! Moreover, what not to love about Buenos Aires, this city is always alive and has tons of things to offer! Had great times and even more enjoying to come!.

I went to AMAUTA Buenos Aires for a one-week course of Spanish in Argentina. The people who work there are very friendly and they want to help you with your Spanish. But also give you advise about the neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires or about great restaurants to visit. The teachers are very professional and they teach with humour. Even as a beginner, you learn a lot of Spanish in a short amount of time. It makes you feel very comfortable to travel through Argentina and South-America afterwards. The location of the school is great, in the city center of Buenos Aires in a great historical building. I felt very lucky to study there!.
