Hi I am Meike, and I am from the Netherlands. I took Spanish classes at AMAUTA and I worked as a volunteer in Cusco on a project for children. The Spanish classes were fun, and I had lovely teachers. At the project, I had the opportunity to put theory into practice which has helped me to improve my Spanish skills. During my volunteer work, I stayed at the student residence of AMAUTA. The location is great, in the city center of Cusco. It is the best place to meet other students and volunteers.
Now and then Amauta organizes activities like dinners, salsa classes, cooking classes, tours, or beer pongs. In the weekends I made trips to Rainbow Mountain, Lares, and the Sacred Valley. And of course, Machu Picchu cannot be missed. Except for the rain - I was in Cusco during the rainy season -, Cusco is great. It is a lively city with a rich history, and there is much to do.
In short, I had a great time at AMAUTA in Cusco and I would highly recommend studying at AMAUTA Spanish School.

Learning Spanish in Buenos Aires was an amazing! Not only the location in Buenos Aires is beautiful but the whole environment around that school is.
The teachers there are very professional, educated, friendly and funny as well.
I learned Spanish, was introduced to Argentinian culture and made good friends there - what do you want more?.

It really felt like being part of a big family - Thank you for everything!

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)!

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!.
